I met a new friend today when she left me a comment ..
Cindy  from Art, Books And Tea  ..
and I reciprocated by visiting her in return.
I plan to return for an in depth visit..
she is an accomplished artist..
and books and tea are favorites of mine..
During  that visit, I discovered her friend Mary ..
was having an awesome giveaway!
Direct from Mary at Hope Filled Living.. 
here is the post and how to enter!!!

For many years, one of my favorite artists has been Susan Branch.
I like her art because it is colorful and lighthearted and always lifts my mood. 
Each year before New Years, I purchase a couple of her calendars--
one for the kitchen bulletin board, where I keep track of doctors visits, activities, etc.
and another  for my office. 
If you go visit her blog and decide you really love it, you can sign-up forWillard
her monthly newsletter, which is full of colorful illustrations ..
and a bit about what she's been up to (Always encouraging)!

And.if you look around my the comments..
you will see  Miss Susan stopped by for a visit ..
when we were posting the holiday traditions from our guest posters!

So, I am having a giveaway on December 26th..
and one lucky person will get the new 

 What do you have to do to enter???
