Whoop, whoop! Meet Nina and a Giveaway!

Well hello there. My name is Nina and I am a fairly new southerner. I have only been in South Carolina 6 months and I l.o.v.e. it. I was born in raised in southern California. 
My husband's job brought us to the east coast a year ago. I have two daughter's, they are 11 and 16. At the moment I am a stay at home mom who is constantly trying to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up...I am 42. My favorite quote is from George Eliot- "It's never too late to be what you might have been." I am kind of living by those words right now.

I have a couple of blogs but have been so neglectful of them as of late that I am pretty sure I am now qualified as an ex-blogger. Right now I am concentrating on my etsy business, Scrap Art by Nina
I make signs, boxes, clipboards...whatever I can mod podge basically. Which brings us to why I am here hogging up space on Heather's wonderful blog...we are doing a giveaway!   ********************************************************************
I have so enjoyed getting to know Nina over the last few months.
She contacted me through another blogging friend from Ca. _ we decided to have coffee at Starbuck's_ and that's it.
Ever since I've wanted to buy one of everything she had!
They are so so cute. 
One of my favorites from the beginning was this sign.
The colors and the grateful had me from the start.
And she is giving it away to one of you.

Here's how to win it:
1. Head over to Nina's Facebook and "like" her. Leave me a comment telling me to be entered.{1 entry}
2. Follow we.are.the.holdens {1 entry}
3. Tell me your favorite piece in Nina's shop {1 entry}

Be sure to leave a separate comment for each entry. This ups your chance to win.
Winner will be announced Tuesday!
Happy Friday...
Heather :)
