Announcing Blank Canvas Hop Winner


I finally had Gratitude help me pull the winner’s name for the Blank Canvas Carry-All Tote this morning.  I know people have been eager to hear who the lucky person is to receive this inspiration package.  Since it has been one of those weeks that has had more “Get-to-dos” than hours in the day we decided to do a quick video to first do a little show and tell, then have Gratitude pull the lucky winner’s name out of the tote and announce the winner.  Don’t want to ruin the surprise quite yet. My reaction is kind of hilarious.  So if you’re curious you will have to watch the short video to find out who got lucky.  I know I am such a tease.  I will be in touch with the winner shortly to get the information on where to send this package.


This was such fun we may be doing another in the near future in conjunction with a special program we are considering offering. An idea that was actually inspired by this hop.  So we will keep you posted about upcoming details regarding that possibility. 

And now enjoy the video. And congrats to the winner.


Announcing the Blank Canvas Hop

Think about it.  Everyday we wake up to a fresh new “canvas” and get to decide how we will “paint” our day.  I believe we are all artists.  Every one of us is creative and has had to face a “blank canvas” in one way or another on a regular basis.  Blank-canvas-hop

During the next two weeks, when you join us for the Blank Canvas Blog Hop, you will get to take a closer look at how fifteen artists from varied backgrounds deal with the blank canvas.  Where do they find their inspiration? What does their creative process look like? How do they get unstuck?  What tips do they have to offer?  And no not everyone of these artists work on canvas.  But I’ll let you discover that for your self. 

If you’re new to the concept of a blog hop this is how it works.  Each artist will be sharing on a different day.  I’ll be sharing my post on September 13th and announcing what I’ll be giving away on that day so be sure and stop back by here on the thirteenth.  I’m really excited about my gift.  I’m pretty sure your are going to love it!  It’s one of a kind, valued at over a $100 dollars, and I’m going to have a really hard time parting with it.

Yep, that’s right each artist is giving away a special gift to one lucky winner.   Here’s the line up for the next two weeks.
