Hey everybody!  Yep, I'm hosting a giveaway in honor of the Creative Arts Collaboration for the #ColorOfTheYearArt event.  This month's event centers around Pantone's colors of the year Rose Quartz and Serenity.  Over 100 artists contributed YouTube Videos showcasing art in an array of mediums highlighting the Colors of the year.  It will blow you away to see how differently each artist chose to work with the colors.  My contribution to the event was a video showing how to make a coordinated set of greeting cards with various sentiments utilizing the colors.  I must tell you, I'm pretty proud of the cards I created.  They are lovely if I do say so myself!  So, do you want to enter the giveaway, which, by the way is the very set of cards I made in the video!  All you have to do is watch the video and comment on it in the Comments section on Youtube telling me which card was your favorite.  Also, in your comment, tell me which of the videos from the #ColorOfTheYearArt event was your favorite.  Don't know where to find them?  NO problem!  Here's a link to the #ColorOfTheYearArt playlist!

Here's my video, but make sure to leave your comment on YouTube to be entered in the Giveaway.

Personalized Ceramic Trivets

These are great and inexpensive gifts to make for any occasion.  I've made several of them to give as Christmas gifts.  It has allowed me to do more gift giving this year than usual because of the affordable nature of the tiles and paints.  You can give one of them as a gift or 2 or more as a set.  Your friends will think you bought custom tiles for them and only you will know you did it yourself and on a budget! How great is that?!?  Video Tutorial for this project.
