Everyone who knows me, knows I like to bee warm. Where we live we are fortunate to have 4 seasons but winter is the longest as I joke we have 2 seasons...Winter and August. One of the things I look forward to at the close of summer is my plans to organize and create since there is going to be increasingly more time inside. This year is no exception with Pajama Girl starting kindergarten (full day) more guilt free time to myself to create. I have noticed around the hive a TON of wonderful things that I wish I could send to all of you beecause I know you will love them and put it to good use. Without further ado I will tell you about the contest. All numbers involved have special meanings. In 1 week...7 days I will be celebrating by drawing the lucky winner of 41 fabulous categories of mixed media materials. That is right...September 7th I will draw the lucky, lucky, lucky artist who will receive a care package of supplies big enough to last all winter long and then some! Comments must be here by midnight September 6th, EDT.
