Enter to Win a Painting of Choice (up to $50) from Dally's Happy Place


Have you heard of Etsy? It is an online store where many people who paint, craft, make their own items, etc., list them for interested parties to buy. My teenage daughter paints, and has had her shop (Dally's Happy Place) online since September of last year. Well, she recently made her first sale (woohoo and congrats to her!).

In honor of her big accomplishment, and in hopes of driving more people to her site, I am offering a giveaway. One lucky winner gets their painting of choice, up to $50. I'll pay for it and ship it out to the lucky winner.


Her paintings vary in colors, styles and size, and admittedly I am biased, but I would absolutely love all of them, even if I wasn't her mom. Being her mom though, I am just incredibly proud of how she embraces her talent and that she has made her own store.


Painting is what she loves to do, and I love how she uses so much color. Her innate ability to choose colors that go together well and apply them without making a jumbled mess (like I would, if I were doing the work), amazes me.


We saw a paiting similar to the mermaid one you see above, at an art festival recently. It was much larger, and selling for $1200. This one, is 14x11-inches and sells for $30. :)

You can learn more by visiting her website: Dally's Happy Place I hope you will love her work as much as I do!

As for the giveaway: Take a look around the store and see what you like. Then come back here to enter to win your painting of choice (up to $50). US entrants only.
