  2. Lindsay,

    I was wondering if you are going to add the picture that you took so we can see what you painted from. I know you mentioned it on YouTube, but I don’t remember what you decided.


  3. Could please tell me what company you are buying your tape for the ATG gun.


  4. I cannot find the link to see the winners….


    • I announced the christmas tree in the first paragraph of the post, scroll back to enter the coloring book giveaway.


  5. Thank you Lindsay!! I have been in touch with Creativity Happens and I have to tell all of you that Barbara is the kindest, most generous person I’ve met in a very long time. We really hit it off and I can’t wait to take a trip over to her shop one day. We’re in the same state but at least 4.5 hours apart. Charleston, SC is a gorgeous place to visit however, if you ever get the chance to come south! 🙂 I’m going to choose the already painted, classic Christmas look. It’s my favorite. I love all that she has to offer there, if anyone gets a chance to go look at her stuff online or in person, please do 🙂
    Thanks again everyone especially Lindsay and Barbara !!
    Big Hugs!!
