Color me, color me a cowgirl!
A Paper Cowgirl!
Two blog giveaways AT ONE TIME??? Have I lost my mind???

No, I haven't lost my mind, and I hate to say it "just happened this way",
so I'll say that I'm doing two giveaways at the same time because I love you!!
And, that's true - I DO love you and I'm so excited to be doing two giveaways at once!(The second giveaway is directly under this post until it ends on APRIL 6th)
The reason for this second giveaway is to spread the word about the best little art retreat in Texas this summer!
The 2nd annual Paper Cowgirl Art Retreat is being held in Waxahachie, Texas,
June 26th and 27th. And, I can honestly say it's a HOOT, it's like family, it's full of art and wonderful instructors, classes and students, and food and shopping AND it doesn't cost an arm and a leg!!

I went last year and had the absolute best time so I want YOU to think about going this year! It'll be even more fun if you're there!!
There is the most fabulous scrapbook store in Waxahachie - oh, my gosh - and shopping, food, and VENDOR'S NIGHT.......and, I haven't even mentioned the classes!
And the most amazing teachers. Did I mention that I'm teaching a class? LOL

. . .All of the teachers at Paper Cowgirl are taking part in this giveaway so at the bottom of this post I'm going to give you their names, their blog address and a sample pic of the class they're teaching, so you can go there from here and enter all of their giveaways!
Are we a bunch of fun teachers, or what?

My giveaway is full of wonderful things!!! The first being one of my vintage clocks. I'll decide later which one - I have a lot more than what's pictured:)
The second thing included in this giveaway is one of my beaded clutches filled with ephemera. Oh, baby, this is a good one!
And, you never know what else I'll throw in!

Now, before you forget, write these websites down for my shops and go see my Easter offerings. Let me take care of all of your Easter needs:)

Enter my Paper Cowgirl giveaway by leaving a comment on this post and then go check these Paper Cowgirl's blogs out for their giveaways!




HAVE FUN and come join us for the retreat if you can!
We'd love to have you come!!!

XOXO, readers, you're the best!

sounds like the perfect giveaway to me...i love little ole clocks! i would be thrilled to have a new one join the family.
have a great day.

Tumbleweed Trails said...

Oh no you didn't...just call those clock vintage! Did you? I beg to differ with you as I remember clocks such as those being around while growing up. Oh, no...this must mean...I'm vintage, too! Of course that can't be all bad can it? I mean the word vintage is kind of neat.

Good morning Jan! I did some blog hopping to grab a link that would get me here since my other one wasn't working.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

San-Dee said...

geez, I never thought I'd say I wish I was in Texas...but that retreat looks like TOO much fun! and Jan, clutches are almost as perfect as roses, especially beaded ones! sign me up.

just remember the first three letters of "vintage" are v-i-n and that's French for wine......

ms.cheryl said...

I got a brand new knee in January because my vintage one wore out but because of that I can't come to the retreat this year so I'm hoping to win a giveaway. I return to work April 13th and have to work the weekend of the retreat, I can't ask for more time off on the heels of a 3 month recovery period. I know you girls will have a blast and my heart will be with you. ms.cheryl

Shannon (Faith and Chocolate) said...

Fabulous giveaways, Jan! I am so looking forward to PC... I can't wait! ;)

The Charm House said...

I had to do a double takes and go back to see if this is who posted the comment on my blog about the inks... LOL YOU are so awesome!!!Girlfriend, YOU are missing a fun product!! Get those inks out and practice on a sheet of paper with three colors at at time on a cottonball or the stamper they recommend. It dries really fast, so you have to work with it really fast. You can create a marble look, an aged look~ really the determining factor being the colors you use! What's so amazing is all the different things you can use the ink on.
I am so JEALOUS that we don't have anything like your Paper Cowgirl here.... But honestly you have inspired me to sit down and start typing out some ideas to put one together! Dawn at The Feathered Nest lives about 45 minutes from my house and Mary Freeman (her journal work is incredible) is about 45 minutes in another direction. And maybe I could come up with something.... Who knows maybe a future post will be Paper Cowgirl inspires women to begin work on the 1st Annual Southern Belle's Art Retreat!!!
I am going to Art and Soul Retreat in June and taking a class from Lisa Kaus!!! YEAH!!!!

Hi Jan!

I am sitting here at my Grandma's house in Hurst, Texas and said where is Waxa-hoochie-something? I want to go to a scrapbook store there! So I hopped on my Dad's laptop to find the Paper Cowgirl blog and who did I spy? You! I want to come back for the retreat in June! It would be so much fun! I better save my $$! I hope you are fabulous! I'm off to check out the other teachers and please enter me in your drawing! Hugs! Amy

Oooh! Those little purses filled with ephemera sound delish!

barbara burkard said...


those clocks ROCK!!!!


Robin said...

Oh I hate that I will be missing all of the fun! The reason? "Saving for Rhode Island"--the fun robbing mantra around here. Can't even have lattes anymore. I know Starbucks is gonna be calling any day now wondering where we are.

Sigh. Love your giveaways but would visit anyway even if you weren't being Very Generous!

Digital Misfit said...

Happy Half-Birthday!
Those clocks are wonderful. I remember having those styles around my house when I was growing up (only they were not so vintage back then...hmmmm)
The clutch bags filled with ephemera - just pure heaven!

AlwaysInspired said...

Wonderful giveaway! I'm all about vintage! One of those clocks would look lovely sitting next to my vintage lamp!
