Propriétaire du Théâtre Français...Giveaway!

Before I announce the Propriétaire du Théâtre Français (owner of French theatre) I want to thank each and every one of you who joined in on my opera theatre giveaway out of love, and passion to create drama as I do.

Hands that create poetic art with grace and age.

Not your typical dancing shoes of stage performance, but shoes that wore out in a soulful performance of building the floor of dance.

I am inspired by old theatre's, their history and beauty they behold.

“I have been creating for a lifetime; probably influenced by life itself.”

My hand created theatre's built and signed by me Dore Callaway can be seen in my etsy shop ready for a performance by you. More theatre's coming soon to my etsy, getting ready for a spring production.

The spotlight is on our newest owner of one of my French theatre's.

Pictured is the theatre of opera where she will start performing on.

I am excited to announce that the beautiful Christel Hutson (Here)A Far Place... is the winner of her very own French Theatre. I am excited to see her future performances where she will become her own actor and producer in the arts of song and dance. The winning comment was calculated with the use of Random.org entering 1-79 with number 3 being the number drawn. If you have not met Christel at "A Far Place" please do so and see the beautiful ooak dolls she creates, congratulations Christel!

I thought of you and I had such a peaceful thought. Thank you for your kind words about my post. I just want to make beautiful things with materials and words.....enjoy your Sunday dear friend and bask in the joy of THE LORD.

Merci beaucoup pour cet article ! Mais prenez gare lorsque vous réfléchissez aux meilleur outils web pour faire votre promotion à ne pas en mettre de coté.
Et oui, le web est vaste et adapté à de multiples types de personnes. il est important de ne pas se limiter à un ou deux outils car nous avons tous des habitudes différentes. il faut donc faire une analyse de tous les outils utilisés par vos cibles et tenter d’y construire une présence soutenue et adaptées aux personnes ciblées.

Par exemple ce travail peut être fait sans engagement par des boites web telles que webmarketing-tourisme.com
