Weekend Giveaway: 8×10 Portrait by Jo Diquez (4 Winners)


So, this may be my most favorite giveaway ever. And I truly mean that.

Because Jo Diquez made a portrait of my “baby” Silas based upon a picture of him and the result is the above. And is it not the most adorable picture you’ve ever seen?? Yes, I might be biased, but it just melts my heart so, so much!

And I wasn’t the only one who thought so. When Jo finished the print, she emailed us a scan of it and my team passed it around and we all oohed and awed over it because we were so impressed with Jo’s work.

These portraits would be such a unique and special gift to purchase for someone — a grandparent, another relative, or for yourself. Or, they would also be a great way to create a keepsake of a special picture — like a wedding picture or baby portrait.

You can see more samples of Jo’s work here. Or follow her on Facebook here.

Would you like to win an 8×10 portrait made by Jo Diquez? She’s generously giving away 4 8×10 portraits to my readers here this week. Each winner will get to choose one picture of one person for her to turn into an amazing drawing like you see of Silas above.

What Is The Six O’Clock Scramble?

I’ve gotten a chance to peek at the menus from the last few months and they look healthful and nutritious, but also like they’d be packed with flavor, too!

This menu-planning service would be especially great for a mom or dad who wants to feed their family more nutritiously this coming year, but doesn’t want to spend a lot of time finding recipes, planning a menu, and creating a grocery list.
