1000 and counting


do you hear the drum roll , wait for it,  yes that definitely a drum roll.....

Well first off I want to thank everyone who comes to my blog, I appreciate each and everyone of you.  If you leave a  comment or just sit quietly by.  This is my 1000th post, I cant believe it.  When I started this blog, almost 5 years ago, I did not envision myself blogging this long.  I have met some wonderful people through this blog, in all different parts of the world.  Could I have done that without this blog ?, I have improved in my art journey because of this blog.  I have improved myself because of this blog, because I never would have found those wonderful artists who offer online classes.  Or the YOUTUBE videos that show you how to do anything. This blog of mine helped me to adjust to being retired, and you know when you retire you will find it an adjustment.  I was able to keep busy checking out favourite blogs, emailing friends and adjusting to life in a slower pace. And it was a big help when I was taking care of my mother, and helped me to heal with kind words from my blog friends.  So in order to say a big thank you to you all for sticking with me thru thick and thin, I am going to have a give away so if you live in tin buck two doesn't matter, if you live in the North Pole, doesn't matter,  so no matter where you live, I will send the prizer   The prize will be  the book called  Master Collage.  I love the book so much, its inspirtional  and just such eye candy to look at.  So I went and   bought another one for the draw. why , because you deserve it. Dont forget I do own a gold mine, so I am rolling in it, ha ha, not.  So all you have to do is leave me a comment with you name and your email address.  If you dont feel safe leaving your email. go to my profile and find my email address and leave me an email there..  The draw will be on my birthday March 17 .   So I just wanted to say thanks again, here is to another 1000.

  4. 1000 posts? That's amazing!! Congratulations on such a big feat. Have you ever thought about exporting them to one of those print places that can turn all the data into a book? I think that would be an amazing way to view this accomplishment. Proud of you!!! Best wishes from germany, tj
