The Working Artist Group May Blog Hop

Welcome to The Working Artist Group's first Blog Hop! We are so happy you decided to join us!

For our first hop we have six designers sharing their talent with you - each of whom has designed a gorgeous handmade tag for one lucky winner! For a chance to win all six designer tags, all you have to do is hop to each persons blog on the list below and leave a comment. Be sure to comment at each persons blog as this increases your chances to win the tag bundle!! For an extra entry, become a fan of our Facebook page listed at the bottom of the hop! Here is a picture of the tag I designed for our grand prize winner:

Additionally, each designer has some extra goodies they will be giving away! For my blog candy, I have selected:

  • 6 gorgeous double sided papers by Autumn Leaves
  • 1 mini chipboard album, spiral bound
  • 3 coordinating bundles of seam binding (raspberry, lime, and lemon chiffon)
  • 2 vintage clothespins
  • 2 vintage dominoes
  • 2 vintage bobbins
  • 1 vintage doily
  • 1 section of lime/white eyelet lace trim
  • 3 library tags
  • 1 tea stained tag
  • a handful of white buttons

In order to win my candy I would love for you to leave a brief comment and become a follower of my blog (if you aren't already). You can either follow via Facebook, email, or both!

The winners of each designer's blog and the tag bundle grand prize will be announced Friday, May 6th on TWAG's FB page and through follow up blog posts from each of our participating designers. So you have five days to hop to each of our blogs! Please make sure you provide an email address or other way of contact when you leave a comment - we want to make sure we get your goodies to you!!

So thank you so much for supporting TWAG's first blog hop! We look forward to inspire you and hope to build connections through a pastime we all love so much!

Now get hopping!
