The Paint Me a Picture Giveaway! (ENDED)




Lindsay Hopkins with Mr. C

I was lucky enough to meet Lindsay through my blog. She is mommy to 8 month old Mr. C and she makes these beautiful works of art.

"I am a stay-at-home mommy to a very active 8 month old little boy, aka Mr.C, who only gives me time to paint when he is taking a nap or has gone "night-night". I have always enjoyed art and crafting. I began painting a few years ago creating gifts for friends in their new homes and nurseries. Just last year I started taking my painting seriously and sold paintings at a local holiday market. This led to people ordering custom paintings, and one customer suggested I check out Etsy...and here I am!

I am currently on an "upcycle" kick...I went through my craft box and found tons of scrap paper, cloth, buttons, and all sorts of things that should have been thrown away. I have used some of those things to create Scrappy Little Bloom and Scrappy Sweet Dreams.

I really enjoy creating affordable paintings for people. It is so rewarding when a friend or a customer's reaction is, "I love it!". It's my way of sharing my joy with others."

Just take a look at these gorgeous pieces from her Etsy shop, Paint Me a Picture:








This super creative mom also has a generous, giving heart. She saw a post that I made about this little girl named Cici who suffered a choking accident a few months back. Then she made this beautiful owl to donate to Cici's fundraiser - Bids for Cici.



And for you lucky readers, she is also generously giving away your choice of one of these two handpainted canvases.

Scrappy Little Bloom OR Scrappy Sweet Dreams


Scrappy Sweet Dreams 8x 10 canvas
(made out of upcycled scrap paper and old buttons)


Scrappy Little Bloom 8x10 canvas
(made out of upcycled clothing and an old button)
