Lucky Number Seven

For an event like We Heart Art, how many prizes do you think are needed to entice bloggers to post about either their own creative projects or their children’s? Would one prize do the trick? No? How about three?

In blogland, bigger is better. I think that when you bring together three different blogs to promote art and being creative, the magic number is seven.

By linking your We Heart Art post to our blogs this week, you (and your kids) will be entered into the drawing for the following:

One of two topless undershirts of your choosing from Blush. This accessory is perfect for everyday wear or for pregnant Moms. If you love the look of layering without adding the extra bulk and straps, this is a product for you. Unlike a tank top or long shirt, it does not have straps which cause your undershirt to constantly ride up. It stays put without having to always re-adjust.


A pendant of your choosing from Noisy Bird Studio.









A black and red checked bag from Funky Bag Freak. This bag is large, hip, and embroidered with black and white flowers on the front and back. There are also tons of pockets inside, which allows you to hold everything.


A signed copy of the newly released children’s book, The Secret Circus. This book, written by Johanna Wright, describes a Parisian circus so secret that only the mice know how to find it. Floating by balloon across the cityscape, the mice travel to the grand performance, where tiny acrobats form mouse pyramids and giant housecats are tamed.


A darling appliquéd tee-shirt or one-sie from Forever Folding Laundry, perfect for your little girl for spring!

A fairy door all your own from Wendy at Green Girl Art.


Finally, a Kid’s Busy Box just for spring. This prize pack includes 20 seasonal crafts & materials designed for young children, easy to follow instructions, and all the craft materials you’ll need, such as yarn, pipe cleaners, tissue paper, pom poms, beads, craft sticks, stickers & more!

So let’s see your posts! To qualify for the giveaway, simply link your posts describing your (or your kid’s) creative projects to the We Heart Art carnival.

Here is how it works:

• On Wednesday, May 13 and Thursday, May 14, Mr. Linky will be open on my blog, as well as on the Three Bay B Chicks and Domestically Challenged blogs.

• After you have published your entry for We Heart Art, link your specific post via Mr. Linky.

• Winners will be announced on Friday, May 15.

Want to earn additional entries, and drive more traffic to your blog?

• Link your post to all three blogs hosting Mr. Linky.

• Link to old posts that you have published.

• Follow my blog, the Three Bay B Chicks, and Domestically Challenged

Pablo Picasso once wrote that “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” Let’s all try to find a bit of art in our lives this week, either through ourselves, or through our kids.

Oooh! Fun! Great prizes too!

Missy said...

What cool giveaways! I am definitely playing along - I am going to go and reread the rules so I can be ready Wednesday!

What great prizes! I hope the winners are decided randomly and not assigned on merit...Monkey is extremely creative and brilliant of course, but I have been so gargantuanly pregnant lately that our 'art/craft time' consists largely of playing magna doodle.

That fairy door is the cutest thing ever!

I hope you get a great response to this, Helene - I think it's a fantastic idea!

I had dinner with Funky Bag Freak on Friday, and she said that she was being featured, but she didn't know why! Ha! Hope she does now!

I'd love to join, but my blog is private. Is there any way I can enter my kids' art a different way? Or allow access to my blog to only one or two people instead of the whole world?

Have to add that I love that fairy door!

Nichay said...

The little fairy door, can you buy those? That would be a cute gift for the person that has it all.

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