PRESENT TIME! (first give away!)

*giveaway is now closed!

Dear sweet readers,

You are seriously the best. This week my little blog hit a milestone...I reached over a 100 followers.   I started this blog for myself as a creative outlet, and really that's still what it is and what I want it to always be.  I didn't start out thinking I would get a 100 followers, or any followers, but now that you are here, I am SO glad! Because I have gotten to "meet" so many wonderful people through this little thing.

So, instead of talking about numbers (because although I am SO excited, I don't want this to be all about numbers!) I want to celebrate by treating you because you are who encourage me and make me excited to keep writing.

So I am doing my FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY! Obviously the words "first ever" imply that I have never done this before, and I am not sure how often I will, but I am still excited and think that it will be a fun experience. PLUS, hopefully you will like the gift I have for you!

This wallet was originally a thrift find, and has since been hand painted by me.  Acrylic paint was used, with a clear concealer over top to keep it from chipping or peeling.

The back is, what else, but Emily Dickinson's poem, Hope is the thing with feathers....
My blog namesake was inspired by this poem, and she is fabulous anyway, so I thought it fitting!

If you are interested at all, just leave a comment below indicating that you'd like a chance to win! I will keep the giveaway open for one week, June 17th. The winner will then be chose randomly. So readers, older or newer, please feel free to submit...I appreciate you so much, you are all seriously wonderful!

(And good news for me, I accomplished my goal this week for being creative and am feeling much better than yesterday. So, score! Btw--all your comments yesterday were so sweet and helpful...thank you:] )

I hope you are having a very lovely Thursday!
