"You Decide" Giveaway

So here it is folks, another Artfulife giveaway. Only this time I am going to mix it up a bit. The winner of this giveaway gets to pick what I paint for them. I will paint any animal that you would like for the little one in your family. If your little guy likes dogs, I will paint him an illustration with a dog theme. If your little sweetheart likes kittens, then the illustration will be a kitten theme. The sky is the limit. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me the animal you would want used in "your" illustration, and why. If your name is picked, I will paint the animal theme you left your comment about.  Last day for entries is Monday, August 18, 2008 at 4 pm. My little ones love to pick the winners, it's Zoe' turn to pick this weeks winner. 

This giveaway is to celebrate the opening of my new Artfulife Etsy store this weekend. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see what animal I get to paint next. 

The size of the finished painting will fit into an 8"x 10" frame.

P.S. The painting will be in my illustrative kids style. I don't have enough time to do the photo realistic paintings that I have done in the past. Maybe in another giveaway when the kids are older.

What a fun giveaway! I hate being number one to enter as that number seems to never win but oh well, someone has to be.

If I won I would love if you would paint a dog that looks like one of my dogs. I have pictures of them on my side bar on my blog.

I'm going to post your giveaway on my blog again for you.

Janera said...

You have an amazing talent! Thank you for sharing it with readers.

If I won, I would want a horse for my pre-teen, horse-loving gal.

Hi,My7yr old would love you to paint her hamster, but if not a dog as she desperatly wants one(but not going to get, im afraid).

Have good day.

Trish said...

What a great giveaway! I would definitely pick chickies! However, if it is for one of my girls, I would say... horses! Of course, right! It seems like most little girls love horses... like a right of passage :)

Elizabeth said...

My family would pick puppies! Thanks for letting us choose. I will definitely be checking out your Etsy store soon.

KKJD1 said...

Oh cool what a fun giveaway! I would sure like a pic of one of my dogs I have 2 and I could send you pics of them and let you choose which one. That way it would still be a surprise. I love surprise's!
Hope you have a great day. Blessings, Karen

Debbie said...

Wow, what a neat give away. It would be a toss up between my new 3 month old painted Colt or my baby....Hollie my 3yo dachshund. I love them a hard decision. I would have to send you their pics and let you decide. Thanks for the chance in your giveaway.


sara said...

Oh, WOW! I'd have to say a puppy & I already know that it would go in our new daughter's room (she will be coming home from China this Fall)! And we, of course, have no decorations yet! This would be perfectly adorable!

Congrats on your new Etsy Store....I love that place :)

Sharon Carpenter said...

i just have to say that your art work is so fun to look at, and it reminds me of how great it was to be a kid again:)
so if your little one picks me, i wouls love a painting with little blue birds... and maybe some butterflies:) i have a 14 month old, and i am upgrading her room to a "toddler" space( i know, a little early... but by the time i finish she'll be one) and i would love one of your paintings! thanks for the inspiration!

OOOh Summer~
What an awesome giveaway! I'm really excited though to see what will be in your Etsy store!

If I won, I think I would want some Monkey's children have Asbergers and SPD, so needless to say..I have two little monkeys that like to climb and screech! lol Their room has all sorts of animals, but we nicknamed them monkeys. And monkeys are sweet, huggable, humorous, and clingy...just like my adorable little blessings!

I'm going over to my blog to post this, such a great giveaway Summer!
Hugs & Smiles,

Hi Summer,

I love your work! I found your blog through Joanne's...glad I did! I would love a painted giraffe for my son...he just adores them..and to have an original piece..that would be so neat! Stop over to my blog and sign up for my giveaway, too!


p.s. I was reading your past posts..and a few summers ago, our son ran into the corner of a cabinet and we had to Dermabond his forehead...I so feel your pain there... I hope she is feeling careful, little one!

Christina Joy said...

Yay! I'm excited about your Etsy store!

Mcclellan would LOVE to have a picture of himself with a puppy. The kid is obsessed with doggies. One of his first words was "Maggie," our dog's name!

zana said...

Hello Summer! I stole a few minutes this morning to check up on some blogs and the shop!
Please enter me in your contest and I would choose a platypus b/c I think they are so darn cute!

Cordwood Cabin said...

I love this idea! Please add us to the sign-up list (I think if we won it would definitely be a kitty...or a doggie...or a chickie...hmmm, maybe I'm not so sure). Anyway, congrats on your upcoming Etsy shop (and we'll be featuring your art/blog on our blog this week, so let us know if there's anything special you want us to mention -- like the name of your shop, for instance ;-)

since we are definitely kitty people here, a kitty or kitten would be wonderful! Thanks so much for having these giveaways Summer, I really enjoy entering them!

How fun! if I won, I would pick a hedgehog because my Opa had a pet hedgehog when he was a boy (in Germany)

My daughter Vivien is three. She has wild curly dark blonde hair that someone recently commented looks like Jimmy Page. She loves to pretend to be "Super Kitty" -- her own invention. Love your blog and work. I suppose a kitten or cat would be divine -- any way you see it! Go nuts! xo ella

Dana said...

Fun idea.

I'm anxiously awaiting the opening of your etsy store. :)
