101st Post & A Giveaway!

101 Posts!

"Magic" An Altered Tin
(Click on the each of the goodies to see the details!)

And . . .

This Lovely Necklace!

can't believe that this is my 101st post!

When I started started blogging in January, it began as a personal experiment. Believe me when I say that I had no idea how long it would last, where it would lead or its significance in my life. Because I said, "Why not?" and took a chance 101 posts ago, my life has been enriched beyond measure. Each post has lead to new friendships and discovery. It's been a remarkable journey - artistically and personally!

Almost eight months and 101 posts later, I honestly don't know what I'd do without you, my wonderful blogging buddies and friends. I am filled with gratitude for your love, support and encouragement. Thank you, thank you too, for all of the congratulatory comments left on the my 100th post. You're Awesome!!!

In celebration of this blog-accomplishment, and as a way of saying "thank you" for your comments and blog-a-licious love, I'm giving away "Magic", an altered (Altoid) tin, and a lovely necklace that features one of my earlier Crowabout pieces, "Mother Nature".

To win, just leave a comment on this post, and you're in it to win it. That's all you have to do! Pretty easy! The winners (chosen by Random.Org) will be announced on Friday, August 14th.

If you've been quietly lurking behind the scenes, this is a great time to step into the light. Please help me celebrate by introducing yourself. I'd love to make a new friend or two! Good luck to all!

Hope you have a lucky and blessed day!

(Special "thanks" to Flickr's Lisa's Altered Art for this sweet fairy, to Nancy Baumiller @ Crowabout for the "Dream" banner, and to Dover Publications for the butterflies!)

My only regret is that I didn't find you until day 5, but since then I've treasured every single one of your posts, as well as our on-line friendship, Terri. I look forward to more of your gorgeous art and getting to know you better day by day!


Michele said...

Oooh how exciting 101 posts! I hope to reach that number someday. Good for you for keeping it going.

I hang around your blog a lot, (I just loove your artwork), but don't always say anything. However, I couldn't pass up this opportunity to speak up. :)

By the way I adore the necklace! I've got to figure out how everyone makes these. They are too cool!
