A thank you note to you...

Today I want to say thank you.  Thank you for reading.  Thank you for commenting.  Thank you for sharing.  Pink Tea is my place for inspiration and renewal... my own tea time in a crazy life.  I cannot tell you how much your feedback has meant.  I only hope that you find inspiration and renewal here as well.

As a thank you, I am excited to announce (drum roll please).... my very first giveaway.

CSN has offered to give one lucky reader a one-time-use $40 gift certificate to any of their 200+ websites.  They have so many great options.  I started searching and you can find everything from a sofa for mom to toys for the kids.

Want to know what's on my wish list?

I have a slight play kitchen obsession.  After all, my daughter needs somewhere to put all that felt food.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Melissa and Doug sets?  We have some of their other foods and have a blast with them.  I highly recommend the spices.

And this last pick is for Mommy.  I love these.  They remind me of a pair of shoes that my grandmother let me have when I was a teenager.  I used to wear them with a short white skirt (back when I danced a lot and had legs to prove it) and a light 3/4-length-sleeve red cardigan.  I loved that outfit.  I felt so cute and flirty.  I even had some of my senior pictures taken in it with a huge smile.  You know, I really may need to order those shoes.  How often does a Mommy get to feel flirty?  And those are too cute.

Want to win?  All you have to do is leave a comment.  Just answer the question... Where is your creative passion?  Do you love to serve and share with others through hospitality?  Do you love crafting for your kids?  Is your passion anything with a needle and thread?  Do you love to have your hands covered in flour and sugar?  Or perhaps soil is your preferred medium?  I just want to know what brings a smile to your face and a twinkle to your eyes.

The giveaway closes at 10 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, May 12th.  A winner will be picked at random and I'll post the winner's name shortly thereafter.  Make sure to include an email address as well.

Now go check out the CSN websites to see what you'd like to get if you're the lucky winner.

I love lots of different mediums of being creative...sketching, sewing, knitting, scrapbooking, baking, writing, photography, painting, trying to make reusable items for around the home (to help the environment), making toys for my son, gardening, etc. :)

This is a really awesome giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

I love to knit and bake.
I lead the knitting ministry at my church.
I also have a good knack for what children like to do in the way of being creative as well. My young nieces and nephews love to help me create crafts and the likes.

I'm only on the start of my journey in craft, so I'm just following orders now (as in tutorials), not very creative but a lot of fun.

My creative passion goes to cooking and hosting dinners. I love watching people enjoy my creations.

I would say photography is a HUGE part of my life and a great way for me to express myself. I also love to sew and make things for my girls and for gifts. The sky is the limit for me when it comes to crafting! Great giveaway, hope I win :)

I love gardening and scrapbooking and really any crafting. One wish is that I wish I really knew how to sew. Anything past a straight line forget it! Thanks for the giveaway.

Hi CJ. What a lovely post. I'm quite sure we should all be thanking you for all the brilliant tutorials and posting you do (I'm just in the middle of making some corkers for my girls.) I know the CSN websites don't have shipping to NZ but if I was lucky enough to win, I would give the voucher to my lovely friend (and Godmother to my oldest daughter) who lives in Washington. And finally, to answer the question, My Creative Passion is mainly sewing and seeing how simple stitches can create something totally unique but I also love learning new techniques for any new craft. It keeps me happy and gets my brain working on all those days when the only meaningful conversation I have is with a three year old about why you can't reach the end of a rainbow!

I just made my way over form Tatertots and Jello, what cool tute you did! I'm going to have to try it out!

My creative passion is cooking. I love experimenting and trying new recipes. But what I love most about it is that others always appreciate the effort you put into making them a meal.


Eos Mom said...

I'm not very crafty/creative (so I live vicariously thru blogs) but I do love to bake.

I'd love to win--I'd get a water table for my kids. Thanks!
