Fancy March Giveaway

I don't know about you, but I feel like I need a little pampering after such a gloomy winter.

Wouldn't it be nice to sit a warm, scented, candlelit bath and sketch with a new set of pencils? Well that is just what I did the other day!

I want everyone to have a lovely afternoon like I did. Although I can't give the lovely afternoon to everyone, I can give it to one lucky winner of this month's giveaway.



The winner will receive a Muse candle scented in pomegranate and citrus, Farmhouse Fresh shea butter body cream, and a drawing set of eight graphite, pencils, three charcoal pencils, one sketch stick, two charcoal sticks in soft and medium, a kneading eraser and a white plastic eraser. 

The pencils are basic, although I like them very much, I did not want to have to worry if they fell in the water. I think you will like them too.


Start sketching!

I had no preconceived notions of what I would sketch, but got some great ideas! Yes, the paper got splashed a few times, but it was fine. The ideas were worth more to me.

So enter here!

  5. Aww a squirrel! :)
    It's lovely!
    I wish drawing came easy to me...I can draw well but it takes a lot out of me for some reason - like I need everything to be perfect.
    oh well.
    thanks!

  11. Cute squirrel! And a wonderful givaway.
    I've tried to follow you on fb (my name is Mieze Katz, but I'm really very rarely there) and I tried for a long time to understand, what is Instagram. Would log in, but they say, I had not gadgetry for that. Well, I haven't smartphone or other such things, only an oldfashioned desktop... it's not working for me :-(
    Send you a little sunshine

    By the way: every tuesday I make a post with a Russian song.

  33. My 12-year old daughter took art last semester & fell in love with sketching. She learned shading techniques, how to use charcoal, & her favorite is the kneading erasers (such a useful tool!) This would be such a lovely gift to propel her talents further.
