Launching My Blogiversary Celebration with an Artterro Art Kit Giveaway

Share & Comment

Artterro Art KitsThis Saturday is my four year blog anniversary! Woohoo! I kind of snoozed through my last few blogiversaries, but this one feels big to me. To celebrate this milestone, I have lined up an amazing series of artful giveaways for the rest of the month. I am so excited about this! You can check back every day for new, fun drawings to enter for art products, books, and other artful products. (FYI, I am continuing to run the guest posts series, so on some days there will be two posts in a day. Extra fun!)

To launch this blogiversary celebration, we'll start with a giveaway of two art kits by Artterro. Artterro makes eco-friendly art kits with beautiful materials that invite open-ended art exploration. If you missed my previous post about our experience using Artterro art kits, it's here: Rainbow-lighted cardboard dollhouse.

Artterro Art Kits

Art Dolls Kit:

Craft four fun dolls to design, dress and treasure forever with the Art Dolls Kit. You can turn them into bookmarks, decorations, scrapbook covers or friends to play with! This eco art kit provides hours of fun with friends & family, and it includes a bonus project–the box turns into a frame for your finished artwork! Ages 7 and up.

Art Journal Kit:

Artterro teamed up with Strathmore Artist Papers to create the Art Journal Kit, a unique product for budding artists to easily explore their creativity through art journaling.  Artists of all ages can learn fun doodling, drawing and collage techniques with inspiring materials.  Available in 5 fun colors!


Readers who leave a comment on this post by Sunday, January 22nd at 11:49 pm EST will be entered into the drawing for both Artterro's Art Dolls Kit and Art Journal Kit. One winner will be chosen by random number generator and announced on Monday morning. Good luck! Giveaway is now closed.

The random number generator gave me 194, so Peg Major wins the two Artterro art kits. Congrats, Peg!

This is a great art idea and great giveaway. Would love to win one and explore it with my little daycare friends!

    Congratulations on your four years. I have gotten so many great ideas from from your blog, I want to say Thank you for teaching a Gramie some new tricks. I have a 2 1/2-yr old granddaughter who LOVES art. She did a painting that I framed and so many people have asked where I bought it. I say I commissioned it from a
    upcoming artist at an exclusive gallery…(my dinning room table.)
