And the winners of the We Heart Art Contest/Giveaway are....

I'm pulling a Seacrest here....we have the results...and the winners will be revealed.....right after this....

I'm so pleased that Wendy from Green Girl Art, an artist in her own right who has generously offered to award one of our lucky winners with a beautiful hand-crafted fairy door, has stopped by my blog to highlight some of her personal favorites from the We Heart Art contest/giveaway. Here's what Wendy had to say.....

Wow, there are so many little artists out there. Firstly I want to say thank you to all the mom’s & dad’s out there bringing art into your children’s lives, encouraging it, guiding & teaching no matter where your little one does art {even it is on the wall…especially if it is on the wall}. It was a pleasure to go through all the art everyone has loving shared.

So without further ado my personal favorites...

Juls at
The Crazee Scotts

Not only are the Scott girls talented – they have lovely voices. Almost as much as I love their performances I love Jul’s philosophy of teaching her daughters to laugh.

Alicia at
More Than Words

Eli has awesome skills, I love the colors of this piece.

Denene at
My Brown Baby

Her daughter’s self portraits are brilliant. I love that she is bringing the art to them, by not only teaching them herself, but seeking out teachers that will encourage them to grow.

The Snail's Trail

yo-yo painting rocks – anything that lets you swing around paint and have such beautiful results is totally up my alley.

Ryan Ashley Scott at
For Monsoon. With Love, Mommy

For noticing and seeing the art in his castle of chalk, because that is his art.

Thanks to Helene for letting me come by and give my opinion. And a huge thanks to Three Bay B Chicks, I'm Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor, and Domestically Challenged for creating this lovely event.

Okay, so now on to the lucky winners.....(all winners were selected randomly):

Blush (topless undershirt): B from Simply B, Simply Me and Jennifer from the The Toy Box Years

Necklace from Noisy Bird: The Snails Trail

Bag from Funky Bag Freak : Mrs. Bear from Outnumbered Two to One

The Secret Circus book: Amanda from Proud Mommy of Four

One-sie from Forever Folding Laundry : Confessions of a Semi-Slacker Mom

fairy door: Hillbilly Duhn's Times and Tribulations

Kid’s Busy Box : Denene from My Brown Baby

Congratulations to all the winners!! And a huge THANK YOU to every one of you who participated in this fun art carnival!! I was thrilled to see so many entries and I absolutely loved looking at all the projects that were submitted. Cole and Bella sat down with me for a little while this afternoon and looked at a bunch of the art projects and now I have a nice, long list of projects we are going to tackle in the next few weeks....because Lord knows, I don't have one creative bone in my body!!

Lastly, I want to thank both Francesca at 3 Bay B Chicks and Sara at Domestically Challenged for co-hosting this event with me. I was honored to be a part of it with you both!! And another thank you to all the companies/bloggers who generously contributed prizes for us to award to the winners!

We did not win but we had a fun time. What a great event.

3 Bay B Chicks said...

Honestly, I think the best thing I could possibly say right now is TGIFFF...Thank God is it Finally Freakin' Friday! Like I said to Sara, we made it out alive. A sincere thanks for going on this little journey with us this week, Helene. I couldn't have asked for a better group of girls to work with.

Now, should we do something crazy today and walk away from the computer for a while?

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

I want to say thanks again ('cause I can't say it enough!) for co-hosting this wonderful event. Creativity is SO SO important for children - they're born with it, and they should be encouraged to keep it.

Wendy - thank you for such a lovely comment about my post. I may not stop smiling all weekend. :)

I'm so glad that Hilbilly Duhn won the fairy door. She has such an imagination :) It's perfect for her.

Congrats to all the winners!

This was a fun activity...thanks!

I think I will head to bed now that I've caught up on your blog (it's almost 2am and I didn't want to leave because I was afraid I wouldn't get back in. LOL)...Nighty Night! (I am sooo going to feel this tomorrow...ugh.)

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
