Christmas Day Giveaway

AWESOME NEWS: My Ebook Mixed Media Art: Living Your Passion just became a bestseller on Amazon! Lots of projects and fun for any crafter~$2.99 (No need to own a Kindle to read it~get a free app. from Amazon by clicking on the tab up above that says "How to read an Ebook on your computer.) It's easy-peasy!

I am having a giveaway on Christmas Day!

So, if you would like to own this adorable pink suit, perhaps to display in your studio, I hope you'll enter. One winner will be chosen randomly.

(This contest is for adults as these little embellishments could not be worn by little girls as they could swallow them!)

I created "altered couture" with an image from The Graphics Fairy.

To enter, please:

1. Leave me a message~tell me where you'd like to display it.
2. Become a follower
3. Post my button on your sidebar

If you can't do all of those things, I understand--I just hope you will!!!

If you have not read the awesome story about Celeste, just click HERE.

Wishing you ALL a Merry Christmas!!!

This little Suit reminds me of when I was a little girl Cin, I remember I was not too keen on the herringbone design then, it may have had something to do with the style of the garment though.
I adore this garment, where an earth did you find such a piece? The embellishments you have added are adorable.

Blessings from Cindy said...

So cute, Cindy! I will not enter as I don't have the room for it, but love it anyway!

Oh Wow, what an awesome giveaway Cindy. I would love to win this for my MIL. She has the most beautiful sewing room and most of the town visits it often to see her latest creation. It would get a lot of attention there! I'll keep me fingers crossed to win. What a fabulous gift for the lucky winner, one of your lovely creations.
Merry Christmas dear girl........

Hi Cindy, so nice to meet you!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are extremely talented in the arts, and I must say I have no artistic talent whatever! So I really enjoy seeing what others like you create, it's a wonderment to me!!! I used to make crafts, swags, and painted things, but that was really only copying.

Hello Cindy,
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comment.
Hopefully I will win this sweet altered outfit you have made.
May your holidays be wonderful my sweet friend.
Suzann ~xoxo~

Okay, I'm sitting here with my jaw on the floor. Cindy, this is GORGEOUS!!! I only wish I had a beautiful studio or wardrobe that would do it justice, but there isn't an ounce of pink in my home or at least a special wardrobe that would display it properly.

I think that you will find it another beautiful place just as you found through Celeste for the other dress, it deserves it. I hope the right person makes her way to this giveaway.
Best wishes to all the participants.
Sigh...still dreaming...

Such pink sweetness !

Hello Cindy and Merry Christmas! What a beautiful and generous giveaway. If I won this beautiful suit I would display her in my living room for all to see. I would most likely encase her in some type of shadowbox frame that could hang on the wall. It would be nice to have one with a door that opened so that I could have a closer visit sometimes. Your work is lovely and needs to be showcased properly and I would do just that! I am a follower and I will put your giveaway on my sidebar.

Ivy and Elephants said...

So happy for you Cindy! You are amazing and everyone needs the chance to share your vision. We are proud of you!

Bluebirds and Roses said...

Precious..Thank you for sharing this season of joy and pink!HPS!

Lisa said...

I am a follower of your awesome blog, I do have your button on my sidebar. Where would I display this sweet dress? I would hang it on a vintage hook on the wall in my little girl nursery. How perfect! Thanks.

Daniella said...

Such wonderful work my friend! It is adorable!
I have a pink studio, and I would love to put it there!! What a beautiful and unique giveaway!!
I took your button!
You are awesome!

Burlap Luxe said...

What a special day for a giveaway :)

Leave it up to you Cindy to add cheer to our Christmas.

Creative Grammie said...

Aloha Cindy,
This is an adorable little dress that you've altered. I would definitely hang this in my workroom.
Sounds like you've been busy creating. I've been creating non-stop myself, trying to get gifts and cards out. I only have time to get on the computer after 10 pm to check email and blogs.
A very Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Cindy Adkins said...

Congratulations, Cindy!!! Wishing you an awesome Christmas week with your family! Love & Hugs,

jacirascrap said...

Cindy, I am a new follower. I am so happy to enter your giveaway. This is a very generous gift.

Savannah Granny said...

I would display this beautiful Altered Art in my guest room. The room has a European flair and this would look very pretty there.

sjmcdowell said...

Hi Cindy,

If I were to win this lovely Pink suit that you have added your magic touch to it would have to be my art studio. I have a wee little pink dress that my grandmother made for me when I was very little and your pink suit would look precious next to it!!

Love and God Bless,


Holly said...

Oh, I love it, Cindy! Because my favorite color is pink and it is inspiring, I would put it in my "studio area". Hugs!! I'm on my way to put it on my sidebar. =0)

Mari said...

Ginny said...

Hi Cindy, I am a new follower and I found you through Celestina's blog. I would love the sweet outfit and I will display it in my "girly" room that my granddaughters stay in when they visit. It happens to be decorated in pink and sage and I think would add a nice touch. Thank You!

Donna said...

Hello my dear friend,

I cannot believe it has been 5 days since I've left a message for you! I saw this briefly and thought I'd get right back to it - but three little angels under, around and top of my feet, made it impossible until now!

I would love this beautiful piece and would hang it in my sewing room or in my dressing area. Pink is even my favorite color! This reminds me of my Baba, who was a tailor for JCPenney's when they sewed all of their clothes upstairs! I even had an outfit similar to this. I wore it with a little white hat and white patent leather shoes!

You are of course on my side bar! Congratulations on your book successes!

Blessings for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful and Happy New Year!
