'I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind ... that I put down in words... how wonderful life is now that you're in the world.........................
I know it's not much but..... my gift is my song and.......... this one's for you........."
I am an ordinary girl who happens to be an artist. Thank you for letting me be who I am. Art is my song. This community has enabled me to pursue my dreams. It can be scary out in this big crazy world. And sometimes I honestly wish I had another talent... like a rocket scientist, a surgeon, or a mathematician... but that will never be me. I will always be a mom of two curious little people, wife to my very own 'Brawny Man' and I shop at thrift stores, go for coffee at the local mom and pop, collect cameras, experiment with new recipes (and use my family as guinea pigs). I will always dream, at least I hope so, I will always have to try something new. I can't express what it means to me to have you all cheer me on.
I was recently nominated for a TOP BLOG of 2010 over at the Blog Guidebook! Thank you ladies. I know I am the underdog in a competition like this.... I mean really? The voting starts over there on Saturday. It will be fun to check out the other blogs. If I win I will be completely surprised. It doesn't matter, it is an honor either way. I found them a while back... they are a nice reference for blog readers. If you haven't checked them out you should.
And guess what else? This is my 225th post. REALLY! I completely passed 200. And one year ago I added a count reader... it is over 6000 now! Wow, who knew. I think we should celebrate. Don't you? So because of all the excitement I am going to do my own little giveaway. I am reopening Etsy in a couple weeks.... just in time for cyber Monday (more about that later).... so I thought we could kick it off with a small gift. From my cameo girl collection, let me introduce..............
Print of Sailor Girl. 8.5 x 11 signed and numbered. Printed with Archival ink on Fine Art Hahnemühle paper.
She is fearless. She is a wonderer who is not lost. She sets sail and has endless adventures. You can love her, but remember.... her heart is anchored to the sea.
If you would like to add her to your collection just leave me a comment. I will except comments up until Dec 1st (midnight). Then I will pick a winner on the next day! I had to do something to express my gratitude.
From the bottom of my heart.
*I may add a second gift if I break 100 followers... seeing as that looks like it is coming close too! We will see! xo
