"IT'S TIME FOR A GIVEAWAY"!!!

Oh my!  I have been so, so, so consumed with wedding stuff that I've completely forgotten about painting!  I don't think I have picked up a brush in a month.  Seriously? yep! So, today I'm painting.
I prepped a triptych yesterday for a commissioned piece that I'm doing and I'm gettin my head back down there in my studio.  yeahhhh!  and...I can't wait.  As a matter of fact, it's 4 a.m. and I was so excited I couldn't sleep.  
So, how's the wedding coming?
Invitations addressed - check (do you know how bad I want to show them to you?)  All hand made.
All contracts in - check
Wedding help secured
Callen's dress will be finished Friday (can't wait for you to see that too!)
Only thing stressing me out now?  The damage that the storm did to our house.  That will take about 2 weeks to repair.  Just basically an irritant.  One that I neither want nor need right now.  But, the house has to be ready for the reception.
Did I mention that it is here at our home? 250 of our best friends.
Okay, my chatting is done! I realized in my obsessive-compulsive wedding behavior that I haven't done a "GIVEAWAY" lately!
So, this is the perfect time!
I'm going to giveaway this:

in honor of the upcoming wedding!
It is
"Debutante II"
12 x 12 mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas.
Just write me a little note of encouragement!
I'll keep this going until Monday the 20th. 
So start writing away y'all!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  22. Well, Megan officially got me hooked to your blog, and I love your art! Her wedding was this past Saturday, and she's honeymooning as I type. However, I know she has entered every giveway you have posted, and she would hate it if she missed the chance. Sooo, I am entering for her. I have enjoyed reading about the wedding planning, but keep some secrets because the one thing I will like more than reading about it will be seeing all the surprises in the end! Keep up the good work!

  29. I love reading your recipes and all about your adventures! I found your blog through Abby Maddox's blog. Can't wait to see wedding pics! I love your decorating and clothes ideas for kids and adults alike :)
    If I win your painting, it will go in my girls' room- 7 and 4- and they share. It would hang between their beds! Hope the construction isn't too maddening! :)

  31. Kendall, first I have to say "handmade invitation!!!!!??????" Oh my...I can not wait to see them and I am already impressed! What a gal!! You have to set up a website just for pics from this event as I know it is going to be fabulous. I'm excited just from reading your post and I haven't even seen any pictures yet!! Now, the words of encouragement...just enjoy. No matter what gets done or may go undone, just enjoy. You are surrounded by young love, your love as a parent, and the love of those coming to your gala event so soak it all in and enjoy each minute. Also, know that there are those of us out here holding you in our hearts as the day approaches. We are proud of the light you shine from within.
