A "Freebie" & A "Giveaway"

"Oswald Mosley & Bride"

Both Pictures are from the Library of Congress
Enjoy using them in your personal artwork!

"Prince Sieghard & Bride"

Since June is the traditional "Wedding Month", I thought you might enjoy a few vintage pictures of newly wedded couples. Dapper Mr. Mosley and his lovely bride are the quintessential bride and groom, while poor Prince Sieghard looks like he just bit into a lemon - or maybe he married one! I hope they bring a smile and some creativity into your world.

A Giveaway

"Outside the Lines"
8"x10" Print

Almost six months ago I threw caution to the winds and decided to create a blog. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am that I put aside my fear and reservations and took that first big step. It's truly been an amazing adventure, full of new friends, creativity and discovery, and I'm enjoying the journey immensely!

As a way of celebrating my six month anniversary and saying a great big "thank you" to you, I'm giving away a print of "Outside the Lines" to one lucky winner whose name will chosen randomly (Randomorg.com). The winner's name will be posted next Friday, June 12. This is a print of my very first Crowabout piece. (It's also one of my all time favorites.)

To be eligible for the drawing, leave a comment on any of my posts between today and next Wednesday, June 10. Easy Peasey! Just be sure that you leave a link so I can notify you in the event you win.

If you've been blurking (Definition: A "Blog Lurker", as my friend, Marsha, would say!), please don't be shy. I'd love to know that "you're there" and would love to hear your "voice".

Have a fun-filled weekend!

Hello my lovely Terri friend! Look at YOU! 6 months! I remember you leaving me a comment and me desperately trying to "find" you and then writing you some long goofy message that I meant sincerely. I connected with you right off the bat in that comment you left and I wanted to get to know you better and HERE WE ARE! On the journey together, still! Congratulations! And your work, well little did I know I was left a comment by such a talented artist that would inspire me over and over again. You have been a wonderful friend and I am so happy you crossed my path - one of those people put there for a reason or two!

So, though I am way behind on everything and especially blogging and flickring, I wanted to at least pop in and leave a quick thank you for all of the support and friendship you've given me since we've met and especially the last few days. You are a real gem, one of the most caring generous folks I've ever come across and I am thankful for you everyday. I will be back soon when I am more caught up and can enjoy more of what I've missed the last 10 days or so! (Hey! There's fish in this piece! You know what I love! And the wedding pix are so lovely!)

Have a great weekend!

Oh how lovely! I'd love to win this and I am having a blast checking out your blog that I found today. Blogs give me inspiration I'm housebound on an oxygen machine and can't get out to shop or take classes so this is great

Congrat's on your six months of blogging, you have a great blog, I love the way you write, something I have never been good at but I don't let it stop me blogging, and you are such an inspiration, so I am so happy you decided to blog and that we have gotten to know each other better :)
