I’m a Fan of… Sandy Allnock!!

Sandy Allnock

If you love the artistry aspect of crafting, then you will absolutely love to learn from the talented artist, Sandy Allnock! I have been a subscriber to her YouTube channel and Instagram for over a year now – and I have learned so much. She also has a Bible Art Journaling channel which I equally love! She is a gifted speaker, teacher, artist, paper crafter, and author. I always leave her channel feeling uplifted and inspired. As a cardmaker, she teaches how to make custom backgrounds to go with the stamps you may already own. It opens up so much versatility for your stamps to get more mileage!

In my mind, I feel that she could pretty much draw or paint anything using any medium available to her – but her specialty is in teaching with watercolor paints and Copic markers. On her website, she says, “My desire is to use my God-given gifts to encourage others to find their own artistic gifting, whatever that might be.” And, she does just that! She also offers online art classes for beginners, intermediate, and advanced artists.

I would like to congratulate Sandy Allnock with this virtual Multiplicity Crafts Fan Award! Keep up the great work, Sandy! ♥

Can You REALLY Win Craft Giveaways??

Can You REALLY Win Craft Giveaways__

Do you ever enter craft giveaways in hopes of winning free goodies? Have you ever won a craft giveaway? I must admit, I haven’t won many – but I have won some! I think part of the key to winning is persistence. You may enter 50+ giveaways before you will win one. To some, the odds just aren’t worth it – but to others, it’s worth a shot! If you want to learn more – just keep reading. 🙂

Where To Find Craft Giveaways

There are many ways to find current craft giveaways online. You can usually find quite a few on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and blogs. I have searched the Internet for you and have conveniently placed them all in one place. You can visit my Giveaways & More page to see current giveaways all year long!

However, I am sure that you can find many more than what I have listed. I would recommend searching for YouTube craft channels that are doing video hops or blog hops. Also, I have found many flash giveaways on Instagram. Subscribe to craft companies, small craft blogs, and crafty YouTube channels to learn about new giveaways as they are posted.

P.S. When I reach certain goals on this blog and YouTube channel, I will also host giveaways. See previous winners HERE. Please be sure to follow me on social media so you don’t miss out. All of my links can be found under the Info tab on this blog.

Giveaways I’ve Won

Just to let you know that craft giveaways CAN be won, I have some screenshots below of a few which I’ve won (I have hidden personal info and/or other people’s names for privacy reasons). Obviously, the less entrants, the better your chances. But I have been shocked to have won craft giveaways where there were nearly 2,000 entries… and I’m NOT a naturally lucky person, haha!! I do not always enter giveaways so my winnings are minimal. I hope I haven’t forgotten any – but the ones I recall winning so far are:

I do not have screenshots for all the giveaways I have won, but I won a giveaway from Vicky Papaioannou over at Clips-n-cuts.com. I have also won digital images from smaller craft blogs/individuals and YouTube channels.

So yes, you can win craft giveaways – but it will definitely take persistence. Hoping you win some goodies soon!! Oh, and don’t forget to check out my Giveaways & More page!
