Giveaway 1

It was a cold and windy morning, the perfect weather to go shopping at Etsy Lane! Crystal, Frostee Jr. and Frostee were impatiently waiting for Mrs. Frostee. Mrs. Frostee was scurrying through the cottage looking for her favorite scarf. Where was her scarf?

Crystal had an idea. She ran into the cottage, and a few minutes later returned with Mrs. Frostee, who was wearing Crystal’s pink scarf.

Frostee smiled at Crystal, and Crystal smiled back at her dad.

Etsy Lane is the Frostee’s favorite place to shop because everything there is HOMEMADE. The shop owners at Etsy Lane are friendly and helpful, and every item is a gift from the heart.

Mrs. Frostee couldn't wait to visit Nancy at Collage Art, which was one of her favorite shops. She knew she would find perfect gifts for several people on her list. There were so many collages to choose from. Among her purchases, she found a beautiful 8 x 10 collage titled, Happiness is Homemade, for her friend Bunny, and another collage titled, The Sky's the Limit, for her friend Kathryn. Mrs. Frostee was glad that Nancy creates custom-made collages. She left Nancy a photo of her friend's baby so Nancy could create a collage for her friend Katy.

The first giveaway item for today is an original ACEO collage by Nancy Lefko titled, "Reach."

Visit Nancy's Etsy Shop or Blog and say "Hi."

The next stop for the Frostees at Etsy Lane was Beth's Art and Clay Designs, another one of Mrs. Frostee's favorite shops. Beth is having a Holiday Special which ends TODAY--Free Shipping in the U.S. for purchases over $50! Wow!

Mrs. Frostee found a handglazed clay tile of a fish for her Uncle who enjoys fishing and telling tales. Since Beth makes custom made whimsical clay tiles, she ordered a clay tile with an image of a graduation cap for her nephew who was graduating from college in the spring. Mrs. Frostee asked Beth to add his name to the tile to make it more special.

The second giveaway item for today is an ACEO print of a baseball from Beth's original drawing.

Visit Beth's Etsy Shop and Blog and tell her "Hi."

Leave a comment at this post to enter the giveaway for these two items. Two winners will be randomly selected and the winners will be announced next Wednesday.

Thanks for looking. I hope you'll join in the fun!

I love how charming this post is... you have set it up with such character that I will miss the "Frostees" when they go. Thanks for the tips on these shops as well... I am familiar with Nancy and all her fun and lovely work, but I will need check out Beth's. Both ACEOs are wonderful.
Have a great weekend. =)
