Time for a Giveaway

Hello bloggers and friends! I haven't updated in a couple of weeks as I have been working on other things, including some art. Nothing new to show, but I do have a few projects on the go, including a mermaid ACEO that is almost finished.

Today I hit a milestone, 100 followers!! YAY! So I thought this would be a good time to tell you all how much I appreciate you. Every one of you means so much to me, my fellow artists, bloggers, and readers. I read each one of your comments, and thank you for your friendships. Even you silent readers out there are awesome! :-D

So I would like to have a little giveaway. What is the prize? How about I let you choose any print from my Etsy shop?
I thought this would be fair, since everyone has different tastes.
Everyone is eligible to win, you don't have to do anything special, simply leave a comment on this thread. For those without blogs make sure I can reach you by leaving an email address. I will draw a name on April 30th, and contact the winner.
Good luck, and thank you again for reading my blog!

Another thing I would like to mention, this has nothing to do with the giveaway, but I came across a thread on Etsy started by a woman concerned with the rapid decline in bird populations. I happen to be a huge bird lover, and looked at the petition she linked to for the National Audubon Society. I thought I would add a link here for anyone who loves birds and would like to add their name to the petition:
There is also a video from the CBC's 'The National' you can watch that talks about it in more detail :

What a shame for the future generations to grow up not knowing the joy of birds. I'm afraid it's happening to our honeybees as well :-(

Congrats on your 100 followers. I found your blog, from Jenny's blog "Wonders of Whimsy".

You have a very sweet blog. I too love nature and birds/bees. I often wonder what will be left for my 3 children. It is a shame what is happening to the world all around us.

Have yourself a wonderful weekend.

How nice of you to have a giveaway! She Felt Peace is my absolute favorite.

You know when you look at a "peace" of art and say, "thats me", that is exactly how I feel when I look at her. I strive to feel and to inspire peace in my life everyday and she just has that essence. Just a wonderful and beautiful print. Thats my favorite for sure!

Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments on my blog!

Michelle :)

This is not good, I love birds and our whole eco system would suffer without them. In the Uk our bees are dieing from a parasite. The tv news told us that they have developed a super bee to combat the problem and are sending out a super bee to each hive.
I am hoping they have got it right, has this could have a serious result if wrong! I sure get worried about all these happenings. Bird flu must of wiped out loads.
I am sure all the earth doesn't wish for these beautiful creatures to disappear.

Sorry got side tracked with this concern.
Would love the chance to own one of your prints, your art is so beautiful. Would be so special to own one of your prints.
I am having a mermaid giveaway on the 30th also, this is going to be a fun day.

Blessings so much and thank you for making me aware of the birds,, I filled in the form.
