Ringing in the New Year Right - Giveaway 1

Here it is! The first in a series of fabulous giveaways to celebrate this fabulous New Year! I hope you have planned to visit today and to check back every day. I have so many talented ladies with interesting stories, beautiful pictures, and did I mention the fabulous giveaways? Let’s get started…

Kelly Roberts at Creative Concepts has the honor of being the first. Creative Concepts is a very appropriate name for her blog because this girl covers it all from cooking to painting to jewelry making. As she puts it, she has "Crafting A.D.H.D"! With all of this and her two wonderful little girls, Reagan age 9 ½, and Shelby age 8, and a very loving and supportive husband of 13 years, Darrell, I don’t know how she does it!

Kelly always had a love for arts and crafts from an early age. She can remember, before she even started school, making carnations from party streamers, embroidering, and of course the first project for most crafters...pot holders. This is a woman after my own heart! Her hobbies turned into a business this year after a couple of successful craft fairs, lots of orders for hand painted Christmas ornaments and art, and several requests for art lessons.



Starting in 2010 she is going to offer crafting classes for small groups in their homes. It will be similar to the "Sips and Strokes" classes. She will bring everything needed to complete a project to your home, ready to be completed by you and your guests. This is a great for friends, kids parties, and company team building exercises. I love this idea! I hope my principal sees this and thinks of inservice…I’m just saying! Kelly also hopes to venture into stained glass this year.


Kelly says that her favorite part of the job is “creating something that I didn’t think was possible”. I love that statement and understand that feeling. Kelly is excited for the new year, meeting new people, and the opportunity to teach others how to make something they never thought was possible. She wants to help people tap into their creative side and obtain a sense of pride from their creation....and have lots of fun with friends all at the same time. Look for Kelly at the craft fairs...and keep an eye on her blog for lots of new stuff in 2010!!!!


Kelly is starting off the giveaway series with this adorable cupcake themed gift set. It includes a framed watercolor painting, ornament with 2010 charm, and a cupcake pendant on a pink cord.
They are so cute on their own, but you get all three! Woo hoo!


All you need to do to enter is leave a nice comment before 8:00pm. You can enter as many times as you like, but remember my New Year's resolution...if I can't say anything nice, I'm not saying anything at all! I'll use the random number generator - and there's your winner! Remember to come back through January 10 for more awesome giveaways.
Thanks again for stopping by and good luck!

Congratulations Marcy!!! Funny story....this will be Marcy's THIRD cupcake ornament as she bought one, then won another at my giveaway drawing, at the Covenant Craft Fair in December!LOL I am sure these items will grace Miss Wesland's room as well.

I want to say "Thank You" to everyone who blogged such wonderful comments and a special "THANK YOU" to Brandie for hosting such a fabulous giveaway to shine the spotlight on local artists. I am very honored, and blessed, to have even been considered to stand beside such talented ladies. Let's continue to raise one another up in 2010!!! Stay in touch ladies....I am sure we will do this, or something similar, again soon !!! Peace, Joy, Love, Health,and Happiness....Kelly McClain Roberts
