Easter Celebration Giveaway!

The giveaway has ended.
Thank you so much for joining!

A blessed Easter season to all! 
May the Risen Lord bless and guide us through the journey of life!


I have been making an Altered Book.  It is entitled "Journey" and I plan to fill it with maps and clippings of the various countries I have travelled to.  But it is also about the journey of life and it ends in this niche at the back of the book.  But as I thought about all my travels and my journey of life, I thought of St. Augustine's words, "You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you." 
Jesus Christ, My True North

I like to think of my life as a journey, a journey to the heart of God, a journey to Love.  And this Easter, we celebrate the best example of Love, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39  

To celebrate Easter, to celebrate my journey in blogland, and to thank my wonderful followers, I am having a giveaway.


I am giving away an original 7.5" x 11.5" mixed media piece entitled "The Tree of Life."  I made it using acrylic paint, colored pencils, watercolors and collage on a gessoed sketchpad background.  The flowers (on her hair, on the tree and the ones she is holding) and her dress are collaged on.

If you like "The Tree of Life" and would like a chance to win it, simply leave a comment on this post.  If you would like more chances to win, please leave separate comments telling me if...

1.  You are a follower,
2.  You made a post with a picture of this giveaway or posted a picture on the sidebar of your blog (linked to this post).  


3.  You tweeted about the giveaway with a link to this post (please leave the tweet URL).

I will be using the random number generator, so please make sure you leave me a comment for each entry you make.  I will pick the winner after May 27 (Pentecost Sunday). 

May you have a wonderful Easter season!
