And the winner is.....

I decided to draw the number the old school way.  The numbers went into a little tupperware and a little shake here and a little shake there, and around and around it went and then lucky number 89 was drawn by Miss Amelia! ( The year I graduated from highschool!  Gosh that feels like a life time ago.)


Number 89 is Amanda from the blog Late Night Stamper.  She had a great giveaway of a felted tea pot cozy and tea bag cozy along with a sweet little felted ladybug ring that Amelia would have loved.


After taking this picture of Amelia holding the little girl, Amelia asked if we could hang it in her room and I said "No", which then she asked why not and then I told her I was going to give it to someone and then she broke down in tears telling me how she wanted it in her room and not to give it away.  


It broke my heart to see her react like that over the picture.  Last week when I had finished making this picture she had asked if she could have it and  I was hoping she would forget about it, but I guess she didn't. It's so sweet,  whenever I finish a little girl picture she always asks, "Is that Mia?"  (me-a)  This is what she calls herself.   My kids are actually kind of spoiled with my artwork. Usually they do get to hang it in their rooms.

Anyway, it was lots of fun having this giveaway.  I wasn't sure if I should do it because Sew Mama Sew is obviously about sewing and well, as you saw, my giveaway wasn't sewing related.  But, I figured just because someone sews, doesn't mean they wouldn't like to win a little piece of art, right?  So yes, I'm glad I did this.
Thanks to everyone for all of their kind comments and stopping by!
