Carolyn & HollieI love being asked to review and promote products and services. This week Hollie Pollard (aka Common Cents Mom) asked me to be part of a group of bloggers who got to experience a creative ‘nite’ out. I brought my friend (and fellow blogger) Janet Miller (aka A Spirited Path).Carolyn, owner Jane & Janet

Art Tonite is a cocktail inspired nite of social painting that brings people together over music, painting, friends and cocktails at upscale local venues.

Guests awaken their creative, expressive selves while enjoying drinks, meeting new people and sharing laughs with friends. Connections made over shared interests, conversation and creative energy. That’s Art Tonite!

You meet new people and share laughs over drinks with friends, finding your own means of creative expression through step-by-step instruction from Lead Artists.

Each event lasts two hours and you’ll walk out with your very own masterpiece.

There’s no experience necessary and they supply the paint, canvases, easels and brushes. All you need to bring is your lovely, charming self.

View a list of upcoming events here or schedule your own private group event.

I wouldn’t be the Contest Queen if I didn’t also give you the opportunity to have a fun night out for you and a friend. Art Tonite has generously given me with two tickets to one of their upcoming events!!ArtTonite-Blog-WIN

Retro Blog Contest #9

Posted on: May 7th, 2015 by carolyn

In 2011 I cleaned out my office tearing a page out of Peter Walsh‘s book Lighten Up. I cleared out the clutter and gave away items I loved but didn’t use. I held seven CQ Retro Blog Contests. All the items had been gently loved (worn or used only once or twice) and most were “collector’s items” as they were obtained at past sweepstakes conventions. (more…)

Win FibralogyWorks

I am a terrible influencer. <sigh> Let me start at the beginning and you can decide for yourself.

Last year I was invited to sign-up for Influenster. I did as they were holding a contest and I won a shopping bag and t-shirt (which was too small so I gave it to my daughter). Then I forgot about it. A few weeks ago I was selected to test a product and share my experience(s).

Several weeks ago I got an email stating I was selected to test and review L’Oreal’s new Fibralogy system for thinker hair. Really?! Have you seen my mass of unruly curls?! (If not, scroll down to my profile photo.)
