Somerset Life and a Giveaway....

The Summer Issue of Somerset Life just arrived in my mailbox and I am beyond delighted. Two of my submissions are featured along with some truly lovely creations that always humble me.
In keeping with my past "publication celebrations",
I am offering up a copy of this issue as a celebratory giveaway!


Here's a sneak peek at my features and more.....





And, I am delighted to say that I'm doing "the happy dance" TWICE because my dear friend and Picker Sister, 
Susan from 
Evelyn and Rose Blog
has been featured as well!!! Her blog, sentiments and the girl herself are all so sweet! Congrats mon amie! Soooo happy for you!



And dear Rae Missigman showcases her beautiful studio. It's all so creatively inspiring. Now I can see why everything she touches turns into beauty personified....


Then there's Becky...a fellow Massachusetts blogger (whom I've yet to meet but we're making plans to do so this fall...right Becky?) Her creations exude her "signature" style of simplicity, serenity and inspirations from nature. I just adore these petite felted hearts....



And I was happy to see one of Monica's sweet and soulful paintings in the "Inspired Call" section. Monica's art work always conveys messages of hope, love and goodness that inspire us to see the world in a beautiful light.

Now...onto to the giveaway rules.....

All you need to do is leave ONE comment on this post to win this tres beau issue of Somerset Life.
You MUST be a current follower to win!

The winner's name will be drawn on June 3oth!
Bonne Chance!

  2. Michelle!!!!! Congratulations, your work is amazing and you do inspire me always. I follow your pinterest and when I log in in the morning that is what I see first. Your choices of pins are my favorites.
    I love Somerset Life and hope I get a chance to win a copy from you. I have to say that June 30th is my son's birthday and last year I did win a giveaway that ended on June 30th. I know is a coincidence......Have a beautiful rest of the week. Ciao Rita
