giveaway for big picture class with amy powers

.
Yay, it's almost time for class to start!  
The super-talented and crafty Amy Powers will be teaching twelve weeks 
of her holiday crafting ideas at Big Pictures Classes
and her online class  CRAFT HAPPY  starts one week from today!!

Amy is also known for her beautiful craft magazine Inspired Ideas,
her online class Happy Go Lucky Stitchalong,
and her imaginative embroidery samplers.

Would you like to win a FREE SEAT and get Craft Happy with Amy? 


My sweet friend Amy and the generous folks at Big Picture are offering 
this FREE SEAT in her idea-packed online class.  
Full of cheerful holiday crafting projects, video tutorials, 
instructional handouts, creativity exercises, 
and three live video chats with the one and only Amy, 
it's sure to make your holidays happy!


I'm already enrolled, and I've even been lucky enough 
to see a little (and help a little) behind the scenes. 


Are you feeling lucky, too?  
The class is $99, but if you comment here, you could win your seat!   

In the comments below, please tell me your favorite holiday craft tradition.  
Next Wednesday, October 2nd, just in time before class starts,
and before her afternoon nap, 
my two-year-old granddaughter Eliää will 
randomly pick the lucky winner.  :)

P.S. If you don't want to wait,
go to Amy's blog and search for the HAPPY code till October 1.

EDIT:  This drawing is now closed.
Thank you to all who entered; the winner will be announced shortly. :)

THANK YOU, everyone! The winner is Mary Beth Hunt, picked randomly 
by my sweet granddaughter — I will email you directly. 
Thanks again, everyone!

on all the wonderful videos, tutorials and prompts 
for  CRAFT  HAPPY - 
her BIG 3-month super-fun online class

Lucky me, I've already signed up!



Class starts October 3rd and features 12 weeks of Amy's cheerful projects to celebrate the holidays (and life in general).

Along with all her inspiring projects, I'm also looking forward to her tutorial
