Sign up for a Charmed Confections GIVEAWAY!!! Celebrating My 1st Anniversary!!

Hi Everyone!  Me again!

I am having a GIVEAWAY!!  

One year ago, I started this blog in the hopes of getting my artwork out there to the public.  It is hard to believe that Charmed Confections' is now celebrating it's 1st Anniversary!  As I look back on this venture, I am so thankful to my family and friends who have spurred me on.  With them at my side, I seriously can do anything.  I just gotta believe it!

I have been selling my art for quite some time now.  I sold on Ebay for years under the name of Woods of Enchantment and sold locally here and there -- selling faeries and such.  Loved it, but never really put my heart & art out there -- promoting myself and my abilities through social media.  Boy, has it ever been a learning experience.  For one thing, I didn't even know what a blog was, let alone how to get one.  This August is a HUGE month for me!  Not only is it Charmed Confections' 1st Anniversary of blogging, but I am happy to say that I am featured in the August issue of Art Doll Quarterly.  It has been quite a stellar year!!   You can say --- I've come a long way, baby!!

It was by meeting other artists who were not afraid to share their knowledge with me, that gave this blog its wings.  To them - Carly, Jody, Marilou, Brenda, Eleasa and Karen, I am forever indebted to you.  These ladies are a force to be reckon with - a super nova, powerhouse of artistic excellence!  I was richly blessed on the day I met them.  They say, God sends you the people you need and he really does.  You just need to be open to find them.  I am so thankful for these people - will they ever know how much?  I do hope so!

So with that being said, Jake (my beloved doggie) and I wanted to have a party of sorts with prizes!!  A GIVEAWAY!!  So here is what we are offering to you!!
I would like to make a custom 
Ghastly Ghost for anyone who will ---

1.  Follow this blog (look for the blue Google "Join this Site" link on my right side bar (scroll down) & click to join this blog) ..... next leave a comment below this post.

2.  Like me on Facebook!  Here is the link:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Charmed-Confections  When you click this link, click the "Like" button below my banner.


You have to do both Steps 1 and 2 to be entered.  Sorry, its mandatory.  Rules are rules!  
Making a Ghastly Ghost is work too!  :)

This will give you one chance to win!  Simple, really!


WANT YOUR NAME PUT IN TWICE??  

To get your name in twice, you will need to do either step 3 or 4 below - both if you love me! But either way, by doing one, it will get your name put in twice!

3.  If you love Pinterest, follow my Pinterest Boards!  Here is the link:

http://pinterest.com/charmedconfecti/boards/      


 ----- and / or -----

4.  If you have a blog, add me to your favorites list and mention this giveaway on your blog.  
_______________________________________

Now, having one winner just didn't seem like too much fun.  So, I am going to sweeten the pot and have two more drawings.  


Second place and third place will win a set of my Halloween Cupcake Ornies. 

 Here is what they will look like!



You get a set of six cupcakes in a set!  YES!! 6!!!!  Three with an orange ribbon and three with a purple!

Here are samples of previous Ghastly Ghosts! 
These are all sold, but I will make the lucky winner one they can call their own!

 

 

Please remember - TO LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS POST --- Tell me what steps you are doing.  Steps 1 and 2 - mandatory to be entered --- Steps 3 and 4 optional, but will give you an extra chance at winning!!

The giveaway runs from now until August 28th!  Winners will be announced on August 31st!!

So let the GIVEAWAY BEGIN!!! 
Happy Anniversary, 
Charmed Confections!

Congratulations on your blogversary and getting published in Art Doll Quarterly. I have loved your artwork since first laying eyes on it all. I've never had a Facebook acccount (I still miss the old rotary phones) and I haven't updated my blog in a very long time so no need to enter me in your giveaway. However I still wanted to send happy thoughts your way for your blog, art and magazine publishing. Jody
