Silhouette love giveaway

 I really can not believe today is Monday….


Hello….can you bring Sunday back please?

Bryan’s parents came in for the weekend…which meant a fabulous weekend even though

i was unable to make it up to Junk Bonanza like i had wanted.

Oh well….

the upside is…we had some date nights…and my new oven gets delivered tomorrow!

Anyhoo…more about the weekend later.

Remember how i chatted about my good friend Vana…and her new published book..

Silhouette Art

when i was at Renegade last weekend?

Vana has worked very hard to get her book published….and i have a copy of it.

She signed mine.

I called her publisher….and asked if i could pretty please get another copy…

even though it won’t be in book stores till October…

and might i give it away to one of my FABULOUS readers.

The publisher said yes.

My friend Vana has been creating silhouette art and paper products for

quite a while now….

and i just lover her to pieces.

We meet from time to time at Ikea…

over swedish pancakes and balls.

Not goat balls…

but swedish meat balls…

and we sit and chat.

Because it’s Monday…..

and because i {heart} you girls…and one guy…..

I am giving away one of Vana’s new Silhouette art books.

The book has papers…instructions…and patterns for making modern silhouette art.

With very little time or artistic skill…you can make stunning silhouettes to frame…hang as ornaments..

apply to stationery…or make into jewelry.

I’m working on mine right now.

Just leave me a comment…and random number generator will pick a winner on Wed.

p.s. I am also throwing in a small little package of things i picked up last weekend also…

which will go to a separate winner.  


  1. I love the silhouettes and would love to make them! My husband made them back in college in a graphic arts class, but never does that kind of stuff for our kids. Maybe the less artistic one in the family (that would be I) could give it a go…
