Pay It Forward Giveaway Week 1 | SimonSaysStamp
I hope this post finds all of you safe and healthy. I am writing this post from my bedroom as I stay in insolation recovering from the virus. It is a new battle that I am fighting everyday as I have asthma, but I am more than confident that I will beat them all. During this time of recovery many of you have asked me how I am feeling and left me warm and kind message, so thank you. It is comforting to know there is someone thinking of you during this stressful and uncertain times, but we are all in this together right?? Social distancing doesn't mean we cannot share love and surely doesn't mean loneliness.
The one thing that has kept me sane during the time is coloring. At the beginning of this month Kathy Racoosin started her 30 day coloring challenge and i never could have thought what a timely gift that was. Because of the challenge early in the month before I was diagnosed with he virus, I had printed out many images from various coloring classes that I had signed up and never got to it and was determined to do them all during this 30day challenge. So when I got ill and had to be in complete isolation, these printed mages and my coloring mediums came to my rescue. I miss making cards as I can't go into my craft room right now, but for now coloring is my thing. i have always found coloring therapeutic abut now more than ever, these coloring classes have taught me many new techniques and challenged me to think outside the box, I even tried my hand at free hand drawing. The images below are my very first free hand sketches that I created and colored .
Any way moving on to the actual reason for this post, THE GIVEAWAY!! As I have spent all these days in isolation and I continue to do until the recovery I have realized how thankful I am for my Lords grace and mercy , friends, family the crafting community and so much more, and it is time for me to "pay it forward". I am doing a giveaway away for the next 4 weeks. Every week I will have gift cards from my favorite companies and online coloring classes.
Today I have a gift card from SimonSaysStamp for $25 for you and a friend. All you have to do is leave me a comment below telling me about a person/s in your art world who deserves to be recognized and why. I will than pick a random winner and send you both the gift cards and you can Pay It Forward by sharing it with your friend.
