A Birthday Giveaway Winner!

Good morning, everyone!
I can't believe it's already the last day of AUGUST?!!!!
Where did the month go? Probably the same place all of the others went!
"Paintspots and Splinters" had a birthday this past month and, if you signed up, you probably remembered......however if you did not, I'm here to remind you! Here's what the winner will receive!
This is one of my designs. The two pumpkins are joined together with a 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of wood. The tallest pumpkin measures 11" tall and the total width is about 6". The floral foam in the center is removable so you can put any arrangement in that you want. I went to Walmart and got one of there "Better Homes and Gardens" Fall Bouquets and took it apart. The crow is on a stick and there is a small wooden 'heart-shaped' leaf on the small pumpkin. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. I sure hope you are, too!
So, with the help of and it's number integer generator, the winning number is:

#117 -- Plain Kate

Shoot me your addy at so I can get your gift off to you!

Sadly, i didn't make it to 200 but I'm sure that number isn't far behind this post as I've only 10 more to go. That will just give me a reason to have another Giveaway!
I sure do appreciate each and every one of you that takes the time to sign up and follow me! I'm home bound, for the most part, as I take care of our mentally handicapped daughter. She has good days and bad days and, unfortunately, the bad out weigh the good so I'm always tickled when I read your comments!

Now I have to remind you of the great GIVEAWAY that the PAFA Team (Primitive and Folk Artists) is doing. Look at my right sidebar and click on the pictures up top. One takes you to the Giveaway and the other shows you the Fall creations we made for our "Strolling Through the Pumpkin Patch with PAFA". Here is a picture of one of my 9 new designs!
You can click on my Etsy mini to see more if you're interested!
Also, today is the day that our "WIN THIS TREASURY" Turkey Trot from the OFG Team (Old Farmhouse Gathering) will be announcing the winner. Click on the first picture/link on my right sidebar and it'll take you there.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Getting Ready for A New Promo!

I've been busy prepping for a new promotion from my PAFA Team (Primitive and Folk Artists).
I've made 7 new items. This is a picture of 4 of them...unassembled, of course! You KNOW how I drag my feet on that part!
The Fall Celebration will run from August 28-September 17 with a Giveaway to boot!
I'll let you know a little more as we get closer to the time.
I'm taking the kids to meet their new teachers this morning. I've thought about bribing the staff to keep them for the day but not sure how that would go over! I love my kids but am looking forward to the few extra hours in the day with some peace and quiet AND uninterrupted painting time!!!

Don't forget to sign up for my current Giveaway HERE. It ends Aug. 31st.
I need 15 more followers to give away a second birthday gift. If you know of anyone who would like my blog, send them over please!!
Also OFG (Old Farmhouse Gathering Team) is still having our "WIN THIS TREASURY". Go HERE to see more!

Stay tuned!!
