New Look… Little Giveaway

New Look… Little Giveaway

NOTE: This give-away is now closed. Congrats to the 2 winners!

I can remember the excitement of back-to-school shopping. Even as a child, fall was my favorite season… the sites, the smells, and yes, even the start up of another school year. Fall clothes were my favorite. I loved corduroy and tights, sweaters and autumn prints. The world was experiencing an explosion of earthy colors, and I loved my clothes to reflect the change.

Today, I still love preparing for fall. And it always means changing COLORS. Recently, Michelle and I have been talking about giving Wee Folk Art a bit of a face lift. We wanted to maintain the “feel” of WFA, but wanted to bring in a little more color. Michelle got right on it. I love our phone calls when she’s designing… “Hey, Mom, check this out”. I’m always so impressed with her work and her attention to detail.

So, after a couple of weeks of planning and designing, here’s Wee Folk Art’s new “rainbow” look. Hope you like it… I LOVE it! And it couldn’t come at a better time… the start of Fall and the changing of colors. Over the next couple of weeks we will be doing some reorganization, and we will keep you updated on our changes and offer some highlights. In the meantime, we wanted to celebrate our new look, with a little giveaway.

Pixie’s birthday is September 17, and this year, I’m making her gifts with the same “rainbow” theme as Wee Folk Art. (More about THAT later.) Anyway… one of the things I’m making her is a set of 6 lavender scented, rainbow beanbags. (Yet to be made… waiting on the lavender.) We decided to make an extra set to giveaway. So, if you’d like a chance to win a set, simply leave a comment below. Share the giveaway with your friends through tweets, Facebook, or your blog, and get another chance to win for each posting. (Make a separate comment for each and leave a link.) The contest will run until Wednesday, September 1, at 9:00 pm, when a winner will be drawn at random. Good luck to all… and THANK YOU MICHELLE! I love the new look!
