Giveaway Day 1(closed)-Celebrating my new blog!


My WordPress blog is ready to roll and I’m celebrating with 5 days of giveaways. Each giveaway runs for 24 hours – 12:00 am to 11:59 pm PST and is international.

The winner of today’s giveaway is Mary Hillebrand!

To Enter: Giveaway has ended.

Leave a comment on this post with a Thank you to 
Hahnemühle for the fantastic products they’ve donated for these giveaways.  ( It is NOT necessary to subscribe, but I would appreciate it if you did.  I am able to do reviews & giveaways because companies like the number of people who follow me.  The higher the number the more stuff I’ll be able to give away!)

Today’s giveaway ends tonight, December 3, 2018 at 11:59 PM PST.  I’ll reply to the winner’s comment on December 4. The winner will have 72 hours to respond.  

All of the Hahnemühle products were provided by Hahnemühle_USA.  I’m providing the 3-packs of Zebra Pens and for the grand prize on Friday, I also bought a Winsor & Newton Cotman set of watercolors and brushes.

One Winner will receive this Prize Package

Every day that my hubby works, I slip a postcard drawing or painting into his lunch bag.  The Hahnemühle cold-pressed watercolors are excellent for this, suitable for almost any medium, including the Zensations Technical that I use.  Today, he took a Girossum!
