Are you ready for some more Giving and Giveaways?
Are you ready for some truly beautiful giveaway items today? Are you ready to learn about some more organizations making a difference?
I am SO excited about these! Kinda wish I could enter my own giveaway.
I am a sucker for old hymns (as you have probably figured out by now,) so when I found Heather's Etsy shop, The Not So Blank Canvas, by way of her FB page, I fell head over heels with this painting (along with several others, including this one and this one. Is it extra bad to covet faith- inspired art?)
This is an original 14x18 hand painted canvas.
There are several colors available and the winner of this giveaway get's to pick THEIR FAVORITE ONE in this style! How sweet is Heather to do that?? Please go right away and visit her at The Not So Blank Canvas and check out ALL her beautiful paintings. You may just find something perfect to give for Christmas.
Heather Harrison is one of those lovely people with whom I should probably be better friends with because we love many of the same people, wore the exact same wedding dress all those years ago (it was a small pool to choose from back then) and are busy raising boys. We have only been in the same room on a handful of occasions, but from what I can tell, she is just as down-to-earth and lovely as her artwork. Heather's favorite non-profit is YoungLives where she helps to mentor teen moms.
Treating each mom and her child or children with unconditional love and respect, YoungLives offers teen moms relief from the isolation and struggle of their daily lives and hope for the future. YoungLives mentors provide friendship, parenting advice and help meeting the practical demands of raising a child. At YoungLives club and camp, moms get to socialize and have fun while their babies get the best possible care.

But wait. We are not done yet. In addition to Heather's painting, I am also excited to be able to giveaway this beautiful handmade necklace by my friend Nicheyta. I have several of be Free Design necklaces and I love them ALL. I love how she incorporates words and phrases into her jewelry. I have one of her tiny lockets and I often wear it when I need a reminder that "all will be well." Make sure to see all her latest creations on her the be Free Designs Facebook page.
Nicheyta (far left) is a dear friend who lives close but who I do not get to see enough of. Her heart and her wealth of creativity are as big as her smile, if not bigger. She chose the Arkansas Dream Center as her favorite non-profit saying " I love the Arkansas Dream Center in LR and Conway. I've seen first hand how it has impacted the lives of children and families that have been a part of it."
The Arkansas Dream Center is non-profit dedicated to helping Arkansans. We provide hope by meeting both tangible and spiritual needs.
It is very simple. We are going out into the communities of Arkansas, we are seeking out the hurting and the hopeless; then we are doing whatever it is we can to meet those needs and to make life better. We reach out to hurting and needy children, families and adults across all races and cultures each week.
