Earlier this year I was looking at the Silhouette Cameo and Portrait to supplement my crafting hobby, especially the Portrait. The Portrait costs $180, which was something I didn’t have. I soon started to see giveaways for the Portrait on my Facebook feed and crafting blogs I follow so I would enter in these giveaways. I never won so I pretty much gave up for awhile. Never winning in these giveaways got depressing and I still wanted the Portrait fairly badly so I made the decision that I’d save up for it and get one on my own.
Then one morning as I was looking through my e-mails, I came across another giveaway for the Portrait. It was through crafter/graphic designer, Lori Whitlock, whom I’ve subscribed to for some time now, and in which I’ve participated in her giveaways before but didn’t win. I told myself that if I didn’t win this time that I’d stop doing them and just save hard. Well, to my surprise, I won the giveaway. A few weeks later, the Portrait arrived at my doorstep.
I am still shocked that I won this. I’ve seriously been wanting this so badly and just knew some day I’d get one. I just didn’t know when. I’m a believer that if you ask the universe for something you truly want, you shall receive. You might have to wait awhile for it but it will come. For me, the Portrait just came sooner than I had expected and I am over the moon about it! I’m very thankful for Lori for having these giveaways (she has them quite often) and for Silhouette for their generosity.
