Has it really been a year since I started my little blogging journey? I just can't believe that a year has gone by so quickly.
I can remember how confused I was trying to make my very first post to Illustration Friday. I really had no idea what I was doing at the time and uploading an image in the proper format on my blog seemed like the most impossible task. Somehow I managed to figure out the riddle and I've been happily posting ever since.
In this year of blogging, I've met so many wonderful friends through this unique avenue and have discovered an interesting world that I really knew nothing about.
It has also been quite a busy year for me and some of that has been documented on this blog.
To briefly recap, I've posted to Illustration Friday 17 times, filmed two segments for HGTV's That's Clever show, started my "Fashions for the home and for the girl" posts, I went on the game show Identity as a support for my cousin, I participated in numerous art shows, had an article in Artella's Daily Muse, had several pieces in the Society of Children writers and illustrators show, created a mural for one of Chicago's Magnet schools, opened an art/gift shop in Naperville, and have had the great fortune to meet so many wonderful bloggers, artists and customers this year. Who would have thought?
In honor of all my wonderful blog visitors I'm doing a giveaway & there will be two winners.
One prize will be an 8"x10" signed and dated limited edition print of
"The Unfading Beauty of a Gentle and Quiet Spirit"
The other prize is a pack of 6 of my most recent greeting card images.
Sorry images of greeting cards not available right now
If you are interested in being part of the drawing, please leave me a comment and a link to your site or to your email address .
I will pick the 2 winners next Friday
