CELEBRATE with ME and WIN!!!

It was 5 years ago today that I worked my last day at Salomon Smith Barney. Lots of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears have been drawn since that day, but finally, for something with purpose...a beautiful dream! Thank you all for the love and support of me and my work!

Each year on CC's Whimsies Birthday, I have a drawing for a Whimsie. This year will be no different! Leave a comment on my blog from today 10/21/07 to 10/28/07 5:00 pm PST, and I will draw a name to win. You can enter EVERY DAY, and please spread the word of my contest. I need more Peeps!!! hahahahha

So what are you going to win????? Well, 1 set of Wizard of Oz ornaments, signed by me! I will send one set to the lucky winner once they are released...(January 2008). Let the blogging begin!!!

Christy, I only own one of your pieces, but I want more!! Everything you do is so incredibly wonderful. I just watched your video on you tube again. "Pure Imagination" is the perfect song to go along with your absolutely beautiful works of art. All of the faces are so alive, and full of character! I can't say enough about you're creations. When I watch the video, and see each piece come on the screen, they really stir an emotion of awe and "whimsie" in me. I truly admire your incredible talent and creativity. You are truly blessed!

Kingfisher Farm said...

Happy Birthday, you are amazing!!! What a year. I was reading somewhere about the desinger for Nic and Zoe, she used to design for Seigrid Oleson. Dont think I spelled that right. She set off to design her first independant label, named after her kids, and she endured many hardships, and loss of her husband. She poured her heart and soul into her line, and like you, has soared. Pam (Here's to inspirational women like you!)

Patty said...

Christy....Happy Birthday!!!
Your so special and it's wonderful that special magical things will be coming your way this year and for may years to come!!

Wow, I have seen your artwork go from wonderful to FABULOUS. Your Halloween characters are staring down at me from the antique kitchen cupboard in my kitchen. And, since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I just can't get enough of your pieces! I didn't know I could "special order" items, so watch out - you're in trouble! Congratulations to a really great artist.

Carol said...

Oh Christy, I am NOT surprised by your success! Words simply can't express the joy I feel for you knowing so many of your dreams have and are continuing to come true. Your passion and talent are truly a Godsend, and we, the recipients, purchasers and/or admirers of your art are blessed by the gifts you possess. The mermaid clock I bought from you recently has a place of honor in our beach house. And, I've pre-ordered two sets of the Oz ornaments! I look forward to seeing what you will offer in the near future! God bless you, Christy! My best, Carol Jacobs (LusiaLady)

Carol said...

You deserve all the success and more, Christy!

Hi Christy,
I can't thank you again for the absolutely wonderfully joyous pieces of love that you have brought to my home. My family absolutely adored the Halloween topper. Not to mention the witch, and of course faith. They are all marvelous, and to make them during such a sad time of your life. I am truly sorry about your father. Your artwork has shown yuor inner beauty and strength. I am so glad to have met you and your creations. Keep up the fabulous artwork, and comgratulations on your new contracts. I am so glad to see the crations you made for me on your website, now my cuties are celebrities too! Take care and God Bless.

Hi Christy,
I have cherished your work for years on ebay, and then followed you to youtube. You are a truly wonderfully energetic and lively artist. One of the few artists that can express her love, youthfulness, and passion for her artwork with each new creation. Your artwork has made me remember my childhood and the giddiness I felt during the holidays, as well as the aw for each unique piece. I was so happy to finally purchase a few pieces from you this summer, and each handmade with so much attention to detail (yes my sweeties are on you website now). You gave me more than I could ask for, especially during a very hard time in your life. I am sorry about your father. These things are hard to work through. I admire you for your honesty, tenacity and thoughtfulness. With each piece of your art, a little bit of you shines through. Thank you Christy
