I really didn't think I'd be good at blogging when I started. I mean, how would I know what to say? Wouldn't I run out of ideas? Would people actually be interested in watching me grow as a painter and come back to see my work every week? I started blogging in spite of all these thoughts because I wanted something to force a schedule to my life. It worked perfectly. And what a blessing to find I actually acquired readers along the way. It's only been 6 months and I now feel ready to take on the next step, opening my Etsy store. All the encouragement from your comments have pushed me along that road and helped me feel good enough to put my work out in the public to be purchased. Thanks for that. You guys rock.
So, my 100th follower giveaway is celebrating all those people who left a sweet comment or signed up to read my blog. I am giving away the following package to one winner...
- a matted original watercolor painting called "Night Sweetpeas"
- a watercolor bookmark (Cherries & Leaves) with a bejeweled tassel
- a sketch pad & sketch pencil
- a red choker with matching bracelet.
I want to also congratulate my friend Kim from Kimminita who also hit 100 followers this last week. She's having a giveaway also, so you should click over and go enter. She's giving away a fantastic purse that she made herself. She is self taught and her talent shows in her product. Hopefully she'll start selling her creations in her Etsy store soon. The purse is amazing in its yellow polka-dotted goodness and I actually hope I win it myself, hehehe. Kim has a totally awesome blog and I enjoy going and reading what she's up to.
I'll be back soon with a zentangle I'm just finishing up. Later, K?
