Shimmerz Blog HOP!!!!



Welcome, welcome, to the Shimmerz Paints "We're Thankful" Blog Hop! 

The holidays are quickly approaching, and we will soon be entering into the gift giving season. Before black friday appears though, we want to remember all the things that we are thankful for this year. We've decided to put on a blog hop, telling you things that we are thankful for and along the way we will share with you our own personal favorite Shimmerz Products, and give you the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes! Have you seen our new collection? It's made up of of 4 new vibez colors, shimmering with golden luster! They will work amazingly with our holiday collection that we are re-releasing for the holidays! If you didn't get the opportunity to snag these last year, now is your chance!


 To play along with us, visit the following links, leave a comment everywhere you go, and finally, once you end up on the Shimmerz blog page, tell us something that you are thankful for and what Shimmerz Paint product you wish you had. Make sure to leave a comment everywhere though, because there are a couple of prizes hidden within some of the Ed team, and DT blog posts! (To be eligible to win these, you must have left a comment on their blog hop post.)

Anyone who is familiar with my work, knows that I cannot complete any project without at least one splash, or drip of Shimmerz paints. I love them, and I certainly have my favorite projects that I have made this year... and they go along with some of my "Favorite Things." :)

"Warning: Objects in Mirror are WAY Closer Than They Appear"
"Tomorrow"
 "Treasure"
 (Thank you to Swirlydoos Kit Club, for the products in the above three projects!)

"Pout {Sometimes You Don't Have to Say Anything At All)
 "Live"
 "My Mama's Crush"
                      (Thank you to 7 Dots Studio, for the other products used in the above 3 layouts!)


These layouts above use some of my favorite Shimmerz paints:

Heidi Ho Blue Coloringz 
My Bleeding Heart Coloringz
Mandarin Mai Tai Coloringz
Sea Monkey VIbez
Jeni B Bleu Vibez
Sugar Plum Shimmerz
Aqua Marine Shimmerz
Sunflower Shimmerz
Spiced Cider Blingz

and that is just to name a few... what are your favorites?

I'm so thankful for my children, the road home, my parents, even hot air balloons. It's amazing to think how truly blessed I am... and I am blessed to have friends in you all too. My journey the last few years in this industry has been something I am not likely to ever forget (ha, cause I have it all down in my scrapbooks :) ) Thank you to my scrappy, crafty, friends, family, and fans. I wish you the most amazing holiday season!


Here are the links, in case you get lost somewhere around the way.
You have until November 25 to enter, and we will notify all the winners sometime shortly after!!


Thanks for playing along with us!! Have fun, be inspired!!

It's really great to see such a range of uses for one product...I love all of the colors but am more drawn to the blue's and green's with maybe a pop of pink or yellow...your LO's are amazing...I can't stop looking at them...

I could spend hours on your website. You are so talented, natural artist. I love the intimate feel of your work and the depth you create with Shimerz and other products. I snapshot your Mirror layout and plan to do something similar with my adult children and my grandchildren. Thank you for the inspiration.
