A Little Giveaway / Hand painted Snowmen

The first one is this little snowman holding a heart. It is painted with watercolors. It doesn't have a magnet on it...yet (I ran out) so If you would like a magnet put on...I'll be happy to do that for you...
The second giveaway is this spoon...I made it to be an ornament...it has a bit of a problem standing up. The bow is a piece of vintage velvet ribbon.
I will pick a winner on Sunday.

Here is my question...

what is going to be your New Years Resolution?
****************
The snow is off the main streets and freeways...but our driveway is still a sheet of ice...
wearing tennis shoes is like putting on ice skates!
We went and saw 4 Christmases
Really a cute movie!

I'm looking for better time management skills. I've added two wonderful shows where I can sell my creations next summer and I HAVE to make good use of my winter. ...and I don't think that my snow is leaving for a long time - so let's just say I'm snowed in & I'm going to work, work, work....

I want to do more things with my kids.

I plan to begin creating again in 2009 and live one day at a time with love and joy. Your creations are precious.

Cassie said...

Yeah a shot at one of your beautiful spoons and a snowman magnet!!!

My New Years Resolution is to get my life back to normal! I've not felt quite like myself for some time now due to some changes that I made in my life, and it's time to let that all go, and get back to ME! It's all about Me! I now know with a solid "for sure" that I can't change anyone around me, they are who they are!

Betty said...

I have several spoons and a little snowman ornament...but, you can never have too much of a good thing, right?!

What's a resolution?

Kathy said...

Hi Laurie, thanks for visiting my blog today and for your sweet comments! I love your giveaway, and please consider me part of it! My new years resolution is to be silent once every day just to listen to the words of God! Happy New Year to you! Keep up the beautiful art work!

Awww both are sooo cute! I don't usually do resolutions but I think I would have to say-to follow my heart and soul a little more closly. I need to do those things that make my soul sing! know what I mean? Have a happy day~Tam! :D

Laurie,

The same resolution I make every morning when I get up: stay away from the cookies!

In other words, eat more veggies, less carbos and fats.

Heh heh heh, I love comments too- but since my readers are mostly teachers, and many of us are still on winter break, blogging has slowed down a bit. Just means I have time to catch up on visiting all of MY favorites, like yours! :)

The giveaways are cute- snowmen, just right for January (though all of our snow melted today with 64 degree weather- go figure, we're supposed to get more snow tomorrow night!), but I'm LOVING the Valentine and spring goodies you've put on your blog banner. I love winter and Christmas, but there's something equally joyous and refreshing that happens after the new year.

Resolution? I need to track down and commit to a master's degree program. I also need to prep for Dear Husband's next deployment- not fun, but good preparation is essential! I'm sure I'll think of others as these last days of December go by...

I'm going to try to "de-clutter" my house a bit!! This will be very hard for me (packrat) to do!!!

I want to see that movie ~ I've heard such cute things about it!

Big TX Hugs,

Laurie and Chris said...

I love both of the snowmen. My New Years Resolution is to spend more time with my friends and family.

Stephanie said...

My 2009 resolution will be to look forward and quite trying to please impress the unpleased & unimpressed! I dont know if that makes sense, but it does have meaning!! lol
Have a good one :)

My resolution is to start walking again. I've been so lazy lately. Sitting here for hours when I should be doing something. I'd love to win one of your pretty creations!! Maybe you should pick me and then make me promise that I have to give it back if I break my resolution! LOL

Better control over my household. I was a SAHM for 15 yrs and went to back to work outside the home 8 years ago & while we've done a decent job, I've become less happy with the household over the last couple of years and I don't think anyone else is crazy about it either. I need to paint some walls, paint some furniture and get my HOME back.

Shannon @ Silver Trappings said...

I'm afraid to admit it, because then I will have to do it. I want to eat better and lose weight.

There, I said it. Now I need to hurry and post this comment.

Love all your spoons!

Come up with a time management system that works for me. I have tried so many and haven't found one yet that helps. Get my things organized so I can find something that I need, when I need it! LOL

madrekarin said...

My New Year's resolution will be to actually be more focused. I have been all over this past year and it shows in my work, my home and my attitude. (Not that it's that bad, just not a happy place.) Soo, no more "I'll try this, and this, and this, and this and that." Focus on one thing, complete it and then move on. Really, I must be the most indecisive person on this earth!!
Thanks for the question. It has given me much food for thought.

My Revolution (resolution) is to be STEADFAST...yes...each idea, each project...seen to the finish!

There shall be no stopping this Muse!
