100th Post! And a Giveaway!
I started this blog last August, about a month before Grayson was born. I was hesitant to start a blog because I figured I would never stick with it and write regularly and no one would want to read it anyway. Well, I was wrong, about the first reason anyway. Turns out I did stick to it- and no one is more suprised by this than me!
I love blogging- and I do realize my blog is all over the place. Sometimes it’s a “let me show you how cute my baby is” photo album, sometimes it’s my lame attempt at being funny, and sometimes it’s me just being honest about my life- it’s a good life, but there are struggles. And as I continue to share my life in this little corner of the internet, I just want to keep being real.
So, to celebrate that I’ve actually written 100 posts in less than a year (seriously, I’m amazed), and to
make myself feel like a super-cool big-time blogger, I’m doing a giveaway!
Some of you know that I paint whimsical children’s artwork. I definitely do not consider myself an artist, but I like to be creative, and sometimes some of my stuff doesn’t turn out half bad. I’ve actually made a good amount of money on my stuff over the years, and am toying with the idea of revamping my “business” sometime soon.
I’m giving away one of my signs to 2 lucky readers. If you win, I can do whatever you want- a theme, match bedding, a footprint picture (if you are in the Houston area or if you want to mail me a canvas with your kid’s footprint), whatever! (See below for some examples). The sign will be 11X14 canvas with a ribbon hanger and pom pom trim. I can also add glitter glaze and even rhinestones (if you’re really nice to me).
To enter- leave a comment on this blog or on Facebook. I’ll number the comments and then use a fancy Random Number Generator on the internet to pick 2 winners. I’ll announce the winners on Friday. Sound good?
I’m excited- thanks for reading my blog!
Here’s a few examples so you can get an idea of the style of my stuff…
