  1. Love Folk Art by Plaid. I use it all the time and recommend it to my students as I teach One Stroke. What a blast it would be to be able to tell the students that Plaid was actually gonna send ME some paints!!! I can hope. Have not been able to get any new colors in a while. Let me dream.

  2. I love your paints! The colors are all so rich and cover very well. I use them in my jewelry making nearly every day!

  3. Such vibrancy. Nice. Nice. Nice.

  4. I love the new colors and would love to win them. Plaid is awesome and I have supported them for over 10 years now.
    Thanks Plaid.

  5. What an awesome giveaway! Would LOVE to win!

  6. LOVE the colors ! Would love to add these to my collection !

  7. They look so bright and super “happy”! I would love to have a set. I know they will be great, because I trust your product for all my painting projects.

  8. I love your blog!! Thanks for sharing. I love the paint colors too!

  9. Great colors!

  10. Can’t wait to see new colors of Enamel paint. Hope you bring back the metallics!!!

  11. Love your paints, I’ve been using them a long time. Love, love, love the new colrs, can’t wait to get them.

  12. The new colors are so fun. I have been out of using paints for awhile and having these new colors would give me the boost that I need.

  13. Love these colors!!

  14. “Anything that you would like.” It’s what the instructions said to say. 😉 By the way, I love the gorgeous colors!

  15. Is the Craft Convention only open to business or can anyone attend? I have seen a lot of new things on your blogs and Crafty Chica’s. We don’t get half of what is out there in this town. We have a few scrapbook places, JoAnn’s Fabric and Craft, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby mainly. Some times the Crafters Mall has a vendor with a few scrapbooking items. We do have a couple of Art supply places geared more for the college kids and professional artist. I see neat ideas on your blogs, but finding the items is difficult. I hate ordering online since you cannot judge when it will actually arrive. I guess I am going to have to order more online to get it. I found another neat project on DIY and HGTV, but cannot find it in the stores. Oh well!!!
