Elan Creations Summer Contest/Handmade by Amazon

It’s contest time !!!! Y A Y… We have a Handmade by Amazon acct. where we sell the Artist’s Original artwork. They aren’t the original’s but they are really great prints. There is also more information on The Artist and Elan Creations… The original’s are available for sale too, prices are negotiable if you are interested. The copies of the original prints are much more affordable before making that investment… I have done this contest before. It is my way of promoting our store of the Artist’s original artwork and it’s a lot of fun too.

The contest will be a drawing that I will post on this blog. I think there will be only one rule which I have put on below. (keeping it simple) Then from that I assign a number in the order that I receive the entires and I pull the number from that. The number I assign to you, is the number that comes in the order of when you enter. You can enter as many times you want too. The more you enter, the better your chances and it’s free to enter !!!! Then the number you get, is put in the drawing. There is only 1 winner and the winner will receive a print of their choice from our store Handmade by Amazon…

I will film the drawing so you will be able to watch. All you have to do is basically look at all his amazing Artwork and comment on a post that features any of his amazing artwork. I hope you will enter the contest and start your collection of some beautius artwork. It’s really a lot of fun !!!

We have one rule to be eligible for the contest. First click on any of the links below and to see all of his amazing original artwork. Then either leave a comment or simply a, “Like,”on any of the the post’s that feature his artwork on WordPress or our Instagram site… It’s that easy πŸ˜‰ .Handmade by Amazon or our Instagram site. It just can be a like, or whatever your thoughts are on the painting. Below I will post some of his artwork or you will likely find some on my post’s, “Monday’s Masterpiece” or “Two for Tuesday.” The contest will run through June.

Happy Summer and it’s Two for Tuesday

It’s Summertime again…Y A Y !!! The Artist i.e. the husband will start back to work this week. He’s happy and so am I. Time to get back to my life as a homemaker and the #painterswife ❀ …

Today I’m going to feature 2 of the Artist original oil painting’s. We have also been researching on how to market his original oil painting’s and have found a way to make prints of his original works which will make it much more affordable for you to own some of his beautius original oil painting’s…

The Artist ❀

Today the 1st piece of artwork is his finished piece of an original by Vincent Van Gogh. The title of this piece is the Potatoe Eater’s…

The Potatoe Eater /Vincent Van Gogh

This was his latest piece that he worked on during this past Spring.

The 2nd featured oil painting for today is an original piece. I thought it was kind of creepy but it really feels like the title. The title for this painting is, “Pandemic.”

Pandemic

If you are interested in any of this artwork, you can leave me a msg. in the comments section of my blog.

American girls and American guys
We’ll always stand up and salute
We’ll always recognize
When we see Old Glory flying
There’s a lot of men dead
So we can sleep in peace at night when we lay down our headMy daddy served in the army
Where he lost his right eye but he flew a flag out in our yard
Until the day that he died
He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me
To grow up and live happy
In the land of the freeNow this nation that I love has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in from somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the fourth of JulyHey Uncle Sam, put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly man, it’s gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you courtesy of the red white and blueJustice will be served and the battle will rage
This big dog will fight when you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
‘Cause we’ll put a boot in your ass
It’s the American wayHey uncle sam put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly it’s gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you courtesy of the red white and blueOh oh of the red, white and blue
Oh oh of my red, white and blue

God Bless the USA

God Bless the USA

If tomorrow all my things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
With just my children and my wife.I’d thank my lucky stars,
To be livin’ here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
And they can’t take that away.And I’m proud to be an American,
Where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.From the lakes of Minnesota,
To the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.From Detroit down to Houston,
And New York to L.A.
Well there’s pride in every American heart,
And its time we stand and say.That I’m proud to be an American,
Where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.And I’m proud to be an American,
Where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

Happy Memorial Day…Enjoy ❀

Happy Tuesday

Let’s get some music going, pre-memorial day weekend…Y A Y for the summer…This one’s for you Connie ❀ Still remembering you dancing w/Joffrey in Chicago to this song πŸ˜‰ . Never, never forget the good times

Me & Connie

Happy Tuesday blogger’s…I have been meaning to jump on and write a blog but have just been so busy, busy, busy. I can’t believe I have all my flower’s planted, I made a wildflower butterfly/hummingbird garden out back and it’s not even memorial day. Y A Y for me and the husband !!!! I’ll be spending a lot of time out back here, very peaceful ❀ . We also bought a brand new, spanking charbroil grill this year, double Y A Y…It’s been a while since I’ve had one of those and I am so excited. I’ve already used it twice and we have only had it 2 days πŸ˜‰ .

This is my Butterfly/Hummingbird/Wildflower garden…Isn’t is just beautius !!!! I still need to get a bird house and a humming bird feeder in there. I just love it though.

Here is the front of our home. This is where my roses are. I planted them a couple of years ago and they are just doing fantastic even though the bunnies destroyed they over the winter months…

Finally a look at our new Car-broil grill…It’s really beautiful and I am so excited to put it to use. Absolutely one of may favorite things to do…BBQ in the summer !!! Happy Summer to all. It’s going to be great ❀ . I hope yours will too ❀ .

Share your world

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole?  (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her β€œCyranny’s Quickies” posts.) Well I’m not sure it has to be either or, but I think for most of my life I was the nice person and that was my problem. When I turned into the blankety, blank I enjoyed being happy and realized that life is short … eat the cake πŸ˜‰ .

Have you ever made someone cry? Probably, but not on purpose.

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter? I’m more of dreamer. It’s more fun to dream, being a go-getter brings stress. There is more joy in dreams ❀ .

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play? Well that’s an easy one for anyone who knows me, the piano of course…

Gratitude Meme

GRATITUDE SECTION

Do you feel gratitude is necessary?Β  Gratitude is how I get through my day. Being thankful can cure anything. My gratitude journal sits right beside my bed on my nightstand.

Nightstand

I never go to sleep w/o that simple, two word prayer every night, “Thank You.” It always makes for a happier morning. Blessings Blogger’s on your week
