giveaway 12: Liz Lemon Swindle

When I was 19 years old I attended a fireside by Liz Lemon Swindle - she amazed me.  I can still remember some of the things she said (which is actually pretty impressive, because I forget things almost instantaneously these days).  Liz began her painting career in first grade, exhibiting her artwork on the refrigerator. In 1992, Liz began painting something she had been longing to approach: her faith. Her paintings are now held in corporate and private collections around the world and have been published in countless magazines and books.  And also she's amazing.


We're giving away this framed print (13.75"x13.75").  It's called "Superman's Mom" and has an adorable poem included on the print.  You can read the poem on the Liz Lemon Swindle website.





Here's what you have to do to enter:

1- For one entry, comment on this post and tell us your favorite Liz Lemon Swindle painting.

2- For another entry, write a blog post about this giveaway and leave a comment saying "I blogged!" with a link to your post. (Your post must also include a link to this post - but you knew that, right?)

3- For another entry or two follow the Green Jello with Carrots blog and/or "like" us on facebook and leave a comment letting us know that you did (that's TWO entries if you do both, just make sure to leave two comments).

4- For another couple of entries, link to this post on facebook or twitter and leave a comment telling us where it's posted (Once again, this is worth TWO entries if you post on both, but will need two comments).

5- For one entry, sign up for our newsletter (bottom left hand corner in the shop) and leave a comment telling us that you signed up.


That's a total of SEVEN entries per person!  Just make sure that you leave a comment for each entry and also IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT  YOU ALSO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS.

I read through the poem & it made me cry. As a mom of all boys not yet in school all day, sometimes I feel overwhelmed. This poem is so true and so sweet. This one & the Come Follow Me paintings were my favorite...but everything Liz makes is gorgeous!
