GIVEAWAY!

In honor of my 500th blog post (!) I am having a giveaway. I will be offering a $25 gift certificate to my Etsy Store (+ free shipping) to one lucky person, and THIS awesome book to another lucky winner:(Even if you aren't lucky this time around I think you should take the time to investigate this book...there are tons of great artist interviews. And if you can find it locally instead of on amazon... well you know, it's all the better.)

I thought it would be fun to get some feedback on what you all think of the plethora of new pendants I listed in the shop. CLICK HERE to go check them out, and then leave a comment for me on this post with your feedback to be entered into my giveaway.
Tell me anything you want~ which one you like best, an additional image you would like to see, what colors are your favorite, grammatical errors, what title stood out to you, any constructive criticism...~ anything big or small to help me on my way. Of course if you are bashful you can just write "count me in", and that will do too :)

I will pick names next Friday July 30th.

p.s.~ Thank you for all of your kind comments, emails, and phone calls about Salome~ I really appreciate the time you all took to share your sympathy with me.

I love your pendants so much! I wear the one you sent me last Christmas nearly every day, and get so many compliments on it! My newest favorite is the Compass one and the Dragonfly!

Daisie said...

I like the dragonfly too but am mostly in love with the resting hummingbird and the butterfly and the owls and.....

I thought they were an amazing idea when you first made them, an accessable, affordable way for anyone and everyone to own a small piece of your art.

Congratulations on 500 posts!!

Love the fact that nature plays in your pieces very importantly. Love your Barred Owl, Butterfly, Cardinals, A Place to Rest, Voyage, Loveseat. Just think they are great.

Count me in.

Julie said...

Your pendants are so lovely! I especially love the owl.

Liz said...

Hi Kelcey! My favorite is the anatomical heart, its always been my favorite iconic element from your art from way back at WWC. Can't believe you've posted 500 posts! Congratulations! Your site looks fabulous, I keep waiting to see you on the front page of etsy. Keep up the awesome work, you are super inspirational.

Love,
Liz D.

Erin said...

Well...I did just ask for one of your pendants for my birthday and all of them are wonderful but I think I especially like the Luna Moth, Spirals, Pink Lotus, and Little Bee. Congrats on getting to 500! Love you!

Sarah said...

Hi! I guess Tim and I also sorta view you as family we've never met...we keep up with you through Emma's posts and her link, but I've never commented on your blog! SO, here I am! Happy 500th! I love your black and white pics of your fam--beautiful! Also, i feel your pain in loosing Salome...our dog is getting up there in years and isn't always doing the best, and we know it could be anytime, but don't really want to face the reality of it coming.
I love your art--"The Gentle One" and "Spirals" are my favs! I love the idea of pendants. Ok, this is too wordy! Have a super week!

srimata said...

Hi Kelcey, Love your work and treasure the pieces I have.

Some feedback: I really like when you extend your drawing on the sides of the small mixed media. The pendants are gorgeous, I especially love the resting (often just a fleeting moment) hummingbird - just so simple and sweet. And love the barn owl in green, spiral, luna moth, flowering heart and little bird. I'll have to try one of your pendants sometime soon. Hope to be able to see you in NH and especially your little ones - so cute! Safe travels, Nancy

Friday the 30th. Erin's birthday! Time to rig the drawing!

Or you can put my name in, too. Double our chances. Maybe I should write a comment from Corbin and Eliza, too...

It's nice to see you finding so much success and community through your blog. Keep it up.

Oh Kelsey I am SO far behind on keeping up with everyone, I didn't even know you had a blog let alone 500 posts! Well, here's to reading the next 500... : ) I absolutely love your art. Always have, am so proud of you for making money on it!! I love that it is so affordable but also hope you might ask a little more in the future, it is so so beautiful. : ) I love "I sing for you", "something sweet to say", "little bee", "in the center", and "red rocking chair" but it is hard to pick! Love you tons - Melissa way down here in deep south AL

Susan Sager Brown said...

Hi kelcey!
All of your pendants r gorgeous. And as a collector of your work I have to tell u that Melissa's idea about raising your prices is a BAD BAD idea!! Teehee. So happy I found you many posts ago I wish I could remember exactly how I found u! xoSusan

Heather said...

Hi! I just recently discovered you and your uniqueness at The Big Crafty and am so glad I did! I bought one of your small paintings. My fav pendants are: Abstract floral, solitude blossoming, and resting hummingbird. Would love to be entered in the drawing!

Jennifer Hill said...

Hi Kelcey! I am soo not surprised at what an incredibly talented and thoughtful artist you have become! I love your work - count me in!

Kat said...

something about those blue backgrounds.... phenomenal work, they all be.

Missouri Bend Paper Works said...

Hi Kelcey...the pendants are exquisite....your paintings in miniature! How does one choose? I supposed I'd have to say I'm most drawn to the owls...they're so beautifully painted...but also to the ones on a text background, as I'm so interested in text myself. If I could, I'd select one of each! Thanks for brightening the world with your work! Patti/MissouriBendStudio

Sarah Wolfman-Robichaud said...

I've always been so fond of heart images - not the typical bumpy, pointy kind, but the human heart. I love the mix of the wing'd beasts and the heart hiding amongst them.
Thanks for the constant stream of wonderful posts. I'm so happy to have discovered your blog so many months ago.
Signing off,
From Sarah in Vancouver, BC

Edibeth said...

Kelcey....
I think you should bring Little Bee up to NH so I can buy it and WEAR it!!!!!
I love reading your blog and aspire to someday be so inspired as to write down the myriad of thoughts that drift in and out everyday.

Continue to make beautiful art, to be an exceptional mother and wife, and gentle soul brightening the universe:)
