500th Post Giveaway No. 2

Now who would have ever guessed that you would want every single person to win?

As we head into the biggest season of giving let us all recall that there are other children in other places that need our love and cuddles and signs of affection too. Whether that be in Swaziland or in our own backyards it doesn’t matter; it just matters that we all care.

And the people who have won (I happen to love every single one of them.):

Wahid picked Sweetmango

Angelique picked Mim

Nadalene picked Madtexter

Nathan picked A Spoonful of Sugar

Please give me your email and home address in my comment box and I will make sure not to post that information. As well, please have another peek at Tessa’s lovely prints and state which one you would like. I will then forward the information on to Tessa who will forward on to you the print you have chosen.

I want to especially thank my dear friend Tessa for joining with me in making this giveaway possible. Tessa you are one of the kindest and funniest and most full of life friends and it is my great pleasure to have you in my life.

Thank you everyone and may good fortune follow you all the days of your life.

Congratulations to the lucky winners! I would be saying wawawa, but I already ordered my own print. Because I know what a poor loser I am. I couldn't have picked the winners better myself.

Lucky them! Lucky you! Lucky Tessa! Lucky me for knowing all of you and joining in congratulating you again on your 500Th! Yeah.

studio lolo said...

Hurray to the lucky ladies!!

Tessa has a heart of gold and such talent. And your heart is 24 carat as well!

I have a piece of art I'd like to make into prints or cards and have the proceeds go to Maithri's cause.

Look up "hat" and search my blog and tell me if you think that would be good. Then I'll contact Tessa to see how to do this non-profit thing. I also like what I've written to go with the art. It seems so appropriate for this.

love you!

Annie said...

Hi Renee, thank you so much, don't worry I feel my art gets stuck like an old record sometimes. Try different things all the time. Hopefully the idea's won't stop or run out.
Just keep going(swiming) as Dori the fish said out of film, Finding Nemo.
Oh how I love that fish! Not too much as to eat though! Remember what the sharks motto is "fish are friends not food" Lol!
Your never repeatetive, your wonderful every day!

I wanted to let you know about an interesting cancer blog a group of cancer patients have been working on.

A fellow tongue cancer patient was sent home to die. There was nothing more that can be done. Cancer survivors ask him life altering questions.

Sarah said...

Whoo hoo congratulations to the lucky winners and to those this will help!! Congrats to you dear Renee!! 500 - whoo hoo!!
Love ya hon, Sarah

angelique said...

Mom, everyone is going to think that we personally picked them rather than picking numbers.

Renee said...

Angelique when you picked the number it still took me to their name. I know it wasn't personal but it still was in the sense that you picked a number I counted down and it was Mim.

So Mim still thanks you whether you picked her name or her number.

Love Mom xoxox

shelly said...
