My Endless Summer Giveaway!

It's time! 
 Can't believe how long it's been since I last posted...I got totally swept away with sign orders and have had barely any time for play ~ it's a good thing I really love what I do, so much so that it feels like play!
I can't thank all of you enough for hanging in there with me!
Here's  a few of my recent custom signs...


I also worked on a few new signs...here is my
 absolute favorite...
Ta da!
I know...it's Christmas...but did you know...there's only 136 days till Christmas?
 Yeah, I thought you knew.

Another new one...the vintage French Bakery.
I've a third one in the works...a Farmers Market sign...soon!

okay...here's the scoop on the give away....

because I'm sooo excited and sooo in love with how the
 Merry Christmas
sign turned out~
I've decided to give one away!!
It measures a huge 40 inches wide by 20 inches tall...
very distressed and chippy~

I did two versions of this sign,
 one with just a light gray shading on the letters...

and another with silver german glass glitter shading....


so the winner will get their choice!
Or....the winner can choose
 a $75.00 gift certificate to either of my shops...

 
or my etsy shop
which can be used to purchase any sign there OR on a
 custom sign!

Since I like to keep giveaways simple...just two things...

I'd love if you were a follower of my blog
and two, leave a comment on this post.

And as always, feel free to post about it on your blog and come back and leave another comment for another chance!

This giveaway is open to the US and Canada...

I'll be using random.org to draw the lucky number...
be sure that I have a way to contact you if your number comes up!!

This will run for 2 weeks...ending on Weds. August 24th.

Now more happy news...I go on vacation Saturday!!
To Virginia Beach with my family...all 21 of us!
Here's where we're staying...right on the ocean!

Sweet huh? I so need this vacation, it's the perfect way to end the summer don't you think?...{and dream of an endless summer!}

Good luck everyone...and again,
THANK YOU
for hanging in there with me!!

Hi Paula! Miss your posts, but I'm so glad you've been busy creating. Okay, I want this sign. For real. If I don't win it, I'm going to buy one...so, as soon as you pull someone else's name as the winner, will you please email me so we can put our heads together and create a custom order for me? I love this. I love it best with German glitter. LOVE IT!

Hi Paula!! Love, love, love your new signs! So happy that you are busy and loving every minute of it! Enjoy your time away...I'm sure you will be even busier as the holidays get closer!

Happy Vacation!

This gorgeous sign would be just perfect for my Christmas decoration. Since we're having a pretty bad summer here with lots of rain, I'm already getting into the Christmas mood. That had never happened to me in August before. I would jump for joy if I would win.
Hugs,
Julia

I just absolutely love your signs! Especially the Christmas one. I just bought a 1930 Victorian Cottage and something like that would be just gorgeous over the fireplace at Christmas. I really enjoy your blog, you have such beautiful photos. I would like to start a blog of my own one day. I would call it "The Walnut Cottage". Have a few stories about squirrels.......

Julie Ann @ annieindy@aol.com said...

What a gorgeous sign! I hope that you enjoy every moment of your beautiful vacation- what a relaxing location! I can't wait for you to get back in that studio! I just bought the finishing pieces for my bathroom that is decorated around your last eggshell blue chandelier sign today. It is stunning! Thank you and good luck to me!

Paula, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE TO win any of your signs! You have a great eye and wonderful artistic talent. Your signs are beautiful, fun, and a wonderful piece of history brought into our modern age. I care for my mother at my house with advanced Alzheimers, and in these years it is the arts I have turned to for my own healing... beauty inside my house, creative projects, antiques, decorating, my own artistic side needing to be expressed. Art is part of the soul and it is wonderful to see another woman running a successful biz, and the beauty in your signs that pour out from your own soul for others to enjoy! Merci!

Personally I just bought the last toys for the stockings at work so I think you are right on time. (No I am NOT done - haven't started family - well no main gifts anyway)
And your studio tour - I loved how you stacked your luggage.
