It feels a little like Christmas around here. Boxes of sponsor goodies are arriving daily!
Sandy Babb sent not one, but TWO of these spectacular canvases as gifts. And these aren't teensy, they are good sized wall art. The amount of detail that went into each is staggering for such large pieces, too.
See what I mean? This "egg" is a spoon!
It's all quite lovely, from the woven backgrounds to the hand stitching and painting and beyond. Look at all the precision and creativity that went into this.
Sponsor gifts can be many things. Some kind hearted souls share crafting supplies, and others send gifts of their own art work or crafts. Michelle sent a beautifully coordinated bag of pretty supplies for each attendee.
And all are arranged so prettily that each looks like a little mini collage itself.
Tami's packet of trinkets are a sweet selection too.
Karen made a lovely collage of pretty paper onto a shutter then wrapped it up with a treasure trove of trims to give away as a raffle prize.
Linda fashioned Boho chic chicks for everyone complete with a cute label including her smiling face.
My Texas pal, Stacy of Whitworth Ranch Retreat, offered a free art retreat for some lucky Peep!!. She emailed a letter and I foofed it up a bit since it is such a special prize. This includes food (and Stacy is quite the talented cook), lodging and classes. If you want to join our lucky winning Peep, I think there are still spots available to attend the classes and stay at this charming B&B.
My peeps are going to be thrilled with their tweet bags and the door prizes, thanks to the kindness of the sponsors. Some are people who read about Birdsong and wish that they could be here. Others are attendees themselves, or past participants who couldn't make it this year. We also have a couple of businesses that are donating too. It has been a nice variety and all are very generous in making my Peeps feel spoiled!
