MISTI-May-nia: A Giveaway for You


Hello Crafters! 

I hope you're having a wonderful Friday heading into a beautiful weekend. 
We are finally having Nathan's birthday party tomorrow so today is "Operation clean our whole house so people don't know we are a hot mess every other day of the year" 
Wish me luck. 

Speaking of luck how about we try to get some for you. Not like that, get your mind out of the gutter. I mean I'm participating in MISTI-May-nia today. Whoop Whoop. 


Iliana from My Sweet Petunia has been so generous and is giving away a Mini-Misti once a day in the month of May! There are so many chances to win! For mine just leave a comment and I'll announce the winner next week.

***UPDATE 6/2/2016 THE COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED TO ENTER***


I have been waiting to use this unicorn for weeks. I love it so much. My niece's birthday is next week and that child is in love with all things pony/horse/unicorn related. Yay for reasons to use unicorns. :) 

There is a video but I'm warning you it's long. It's a curl up with a cup of coffee, settle in kind of video. Between the embossing, watercoloring, and copic coloring it took me about 2 hours in real life. I managed to get the video slightly under 20. Christmas miracle. 



I hope you enjoyed spending the last half hour of your life with me haha. Seriously, though I legit love those clouds. How about you?
