Kate wants to paint 100 tiny pictures of real homes. To gather funding for all the supplies she'll need, she's started a Kickstarter project. Kickstarter is an online community fundraising site that invites the public to pledge towards various projects. The funding is all-or-nothing, so if Kate gets enough pledges to meet her goal, the project gets funded. If she doesn't, her project isn't funded, no one is charged, and she doesn't get to complete the project! A donation is not required to enter this giveaway, but I encourage you to consider pledging your support of this talented woman following her dream! Donors at certain levels will get one of Kate's custom paintings, so if you don't win, please consider donating. She has only two weeks left to raise another $832!
On to the giveaway details: One lucky reader will win a painting that will be part of Kate's 100 Tiny Homes project. The winner will receive a 5" x 5" original painting of their home, whether it's a house, an apartment, or a tepee! This would be a great housewarming gift, wedding gift, or Christmas gift (a painting of your parent's first home together, where you kids were all born? So sweet).
How to enter: Just leave a comment before Wednesday, September 22nd, about what your home means to you, and Kate will select one winner on Thursday, September 23rd.
Valid entries have an email address included in the comment! No email address, no winning.
