Oh JoyOh Joy

a pretty painterly {giveaway} for a good cause...


At the age of 26, on an ordinary day, Katherine Wolf suffered an extraordinary, near-fatal brain stem stroke while her 6-month old son slept in the other room.  Against all odds, she miraculously survived.  Along with her husband and son, she continues to recover and celebrate her new life, even though it looks very different than she ever thought it would. In celebration of Katherine's life and her new cause, Hope Heals, we are giving away this gorgeous print by one of my favorite artists, Lulie Wallace.

The giveaway is for a limited-edition, hand-signed and numbered print of "Flowers for Katherine" ($100 value). The original painting will be donated to and displayed at UCLA Hospital (the hospital that saved Katherine's life) as a small expression of beauty and hope for the patients, families, and staff there.

To enter, simply visit the Hope Heals site, then leave a comment here telling me one thing in your life you are grateful for. Entries must be posted by this Friday, September 6th, at 8 a.m. PST, and one winner will be chosen at random*.

UPDATE: Congrats to Jessica R. from Mamaroneck, NY for being our winner this time!

*This giveaway is open to any reader, anywhere in the world! Please do not leave your email or web address in the body of the comment, only in the allotted boxes. $100 USD approximate total value. Winner will be contacted by email once comments close, and announced at the bottom of this post soon after.
