Winner Announcement of the 2020 New Years Giveaway Sweepstakes

I am so excited to announce the winner of this year's New Years giveaway.  Congratulations Jennifer F.  You can see past winners on the Winners Page
Not a winner?  No worries there will be another giveaway on this blog shortly :)
So what did Jennifer win?  See below:
Woop Woop its 2020 can you believe it?  This year I can clearly can see my future and it is bright;  Lots of photographs and digital art.  Hope your vision is 20/20 and you can see my lovely photos and art from Photography by Colleen.  Even Better Yet you can enter to win 2 of these lovely prints for your own.

Colleen photographs Americana; the rust and dust that made America and the amazing nature that is unique to the United States.  Many of the images can be found right outside your door but a person has to look, really look to see it.  Having grownup in the Midwestern states she can empathize with the cabin fever many are experiencing at this moment.  One tactic for combating those winter blahs is to bring some of that Springtime sun and nature inside.  Invite Summer in and find those blues fly away.

What can you win?
This amazing giveaway has a $85.00 value (not exchangeable for cash) and includes TWO 11 x 14 (or 14 x 11) unframed Fine Art Photographs or Digital Art Prints.  You can chose either 2 different or 2 the same from any image you find on my RedBubble shop or Pixels Website.  Note the actual Prints will be ship directly from me to you and not created by RedBubble or Pixels.  My Fine Art Photographs are printed by ProDPI and are the highest quality prints.  And as a bonus since they are coming directly from me you will get a numbered and signed certificate of authenticity with each.

While we are in winters icy grasp, why not bring some sunshine into your how with these beautiful nature scenes:

If you love this giveaway and would like to see more please leave a comment. Also if you would like to see a specific item as a giveaway, let me know. I definitely consider requests. Lastly if you love this giveaway please spread the word.  After all I am hosting it to get more traffic and if it works you will see more :)  Good luck everyone!

Co-hosting You're the Star Blog Hop Family Feature Week

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Martin Luther King day today.  I know that this day has me reflecting on how grateful I am for the sacrifices that He and his family made for us to all be come a better country.  I am personally grateful and sincerely hope that all take a few minutes today to reflect on how this one person changed our country so significantly.  It just shows how one voice can make a difference and we should never think what we say doesn't matter.

We can be a voice for good or bad, it is a choice.  Over the last couple years I have been working so hard to consciously be a voice for good. However as simple as that seems I slip backwards some days.  I person running into me with their shopping cart, cutting us off while driving, etc. can be the ruination of all my good intentions if I am not careful.  I am proud to say I am doing so much better at biting my tongue, but I also know I have a long ways to go.  I also know that for some people this comes like second nature (I am not that person so it takes practice)

Speak of love, peace and those things that are good.  Every word we say has energy that vibrates all around us reaching many.

With that little reflection noted; I can't wait to see what everyone is busily working on this week but first a post from my blog:
