Creating Vintage Charm, One Year Celebration Giveaway





Here we are, a year later, celebrating 5 successful and wonderful issues of 
Creating Vintage Charm.

I would love to first of all, send a BIG THANK YOU, to all of you who contributed to this magazine, in anyway, shape or form. After all, this magazine wouldn't be what it is without you. All the talented artists, crafters, designers, photographers, stylists, writers... I have met so many wonderful people in this venture and I know that I will be meeting many more. 

I had this vision when I was planing on this magazine, of inspiring creativity, art, design and decor in vintage style. Anything past our generation is vintage. And everyone has different tastes. And I do hope that with this magazine, I would be able to deliver something fun for everyone. 


Now for the Giveaway...


I created a wall plaque... and it has my favorite quote on it...

Creativity is allowing yourselves to make mistakes,
Art is knowing which ones to keep....

Isn't that a wonderful quote!!






The winner of this giveaway will get the nice, scroll, mixed media wall plaque...
But that is not all... 

Look what I found while I was out hunting... 




I thought its perfect size to stuff with goodies to inspire THE creativity... 
So I went on hunting some more...

Kathy Harris from Vintage Rose Antiques in Cana, VA... I love to visit her and her shop... she got me started  by providing with some music sheets to add in the box.

And creating some more...



I found a vintage farm journal from the 1920's, lace doileys...

Then I came home and looked into my stash of wall papers and borders...

Some pink striped wall paper scraps, some pink ribbon and roses wallpaper, some black and white Victorian style bathroom wall paper...

Added some Victorian lace and crochet lace, buttons, a cameo... hmmm!! I hope I can close this box =)
I may have not mentioned everything that is included but its all in the pictures... that sits on top of the open case of course...
















Carol at Through the Woods makes very lovely vintage style tags....
And she sent me a few batches to giveaway. One batch will be included in the box and the others will be given to other winners. I believe I will be picking another 4 winners to get these beautiful tags with the famous propaganda slogan, 
Keep Calm and Carry On



So there you have it.... You can drop your name in the hat by leaving a comment including your email to this post and drawing will be in the 25th of Sept. (The date I published the first issue of Creating Vintage Charm last year)

I would also like to ask any of you to host a giveaway and join the fun. Offer something...anything, big or small, just add to the fun. Host a giveaway with the same drawing date of September 25th. Can you imagine?? Lot of us will be waiting for the day. If you host a giveaway, then leave three comments... Thats right!! Three chances to win!! =)

Congratulations on 1 year and 5 exsquisite (I have no idea how to spell that word) issues!

What a wonderful and generous giveaway, please enter me in a chance to win it.

Also, I have been puting together a giveaway for the past few days (I finally hit 100 followers) so I will be coming back once I get that post all put together. What a wonderful idea to have a bunch of giveaways offered at the same time.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing your love of art and creativity.
