USC Bound: Celebrating a Scholar with a Trinkets by Dana Giveaway

Part of the blogger life is celebrating successes with each other. 

I have a blogger friend who has some really exciting news. Dana of Cheers to Novelty and Trinkets by Dana on Etsy was recently accepted to a graduate program at the University of Southern California (USC) for Occupational Therapy!!! This means that she'll be moving from her home in Atlanta, GA to sunny SoCal. She'll be relocated by early summer, and that means she's got lots of Etsy inventory to sell. She's having a BOGO sale at her shop in an effort to find her creations new homes so she doesn't have to transport everything with her.



So here at 2justByou, we're celebrating this scholar. Education is important to us, and we're sharing her awesome sale because we want her shop to be SOLD OUT! Visit her shop and see what you can find. There's lots to love at Trinkets! And with a BOGO sale, how can you resist? We're pretty excited that she will be a Californian soon! She'll have a ton of new inspirations for her creativity to go wild, and she needs to make room for the new.

We've done collaborations with Dana before, because she's a long-time blogging buddy of mine. Instead of showcasing her awesome Etsy items on this installment, I wanted to share something different and new with you.

Dana has a YouTube Channel, and one of my favorite things there is her speed paintings (and everything else, of course - Psssssstt...She also posts super fun DIYs!). She recently shared this one called Midnight Sunset, and I wanted to share it here so that you can see how awesome her artwork is. I hope you'll go and visit her there and subscribe!




We're also celebrating with a giveaway. (How could we not?) Dana has put together a great prize pack of items perfect for spring and the upcoming summer season. Take a quick peek!




You can win the cute summer accessories, felt ornaments, and the fun mixed media apple artwork shown above. Giveaway is open worldwide and ends May 1st, 2015 at 11:59 pm, EST. Enter with the Rafflecopter entry form below. There are lots of DAILY ENTRY options, so have fun and good luck!

Congratulations to Dana! I've finally donated all (ok, most) clothes that I haven't worn in years and probably won't ever again, so that'd be helpful when moving.

I think my advice is to keep your important papers with you and look up important numbers and addresses before you get there i.e., utilities, Doctors, dentists, etc.

It can get cold in so cal so bring your warm clothes. That being said it never stays cold for long. Thing will be more expensive but it will be great.

California sounded great, but it's not. Our Senators are refusing to listen to their constitutes. California is turning into a police state. Our rights are being removed daily.
