Terri posted a picture of a necklace she made and it got me thinking. I have several kits from the French General that are unopened and I would love to celebrate my 1300 post with a giveaway thank you!!!!I started my blog June 15th, 2007! I was at a group gathering and hostess julie was showing us her blog and said she was trying to post every day!

I was fascinated by the idea of having a place where I could post anything I wanted!
Art, family,thoughts, anything I wanted to share! So, what fun I've had!!!!
I have been able to retell special stories, show some vintage family photos, celebrate happy occasions , share my art, support other artists and post special causes for events that others may not be aware of, ask for help from fellow bloggers in art and life.
I have found that those who have visited me are extremely generous and supportive!


Here are 2 unopened kits, seaside theme, of a necklace and bracelet.
Leave a comment here at this post, a way to reach you and I will draw the winner's name on St. Patrick's Day-----My father's birthday!!!!

Wishing you the luck of the Irish!

Hi Peggy,

One Creative Queen said...

Are you kidding me?? 1300 posts?? I've had my blog longer - and I'm at about 200 posts. Stop making the rest of us look bad!!

Or not. I love reading your blog and generally drop by a few times every week to see what you're up to...so not posting would kind of "gum up my creative works" - and they need no help gumming!

Congratulations on a fantastic blog that really showcases what a terrific artist, and wonderful person you are. You've done a great job building something you should be very proud of - besides giving the rest of us something to strive for.

You go with your bad self!!

Thank you for blessing us with your art, your stories, your support, and mostly, your heart. You're a keeper!

xx,
Katherine

One Creative Queen said...

Oh - and pssst! You're just supposed to tell people you were ahead of your time. I could have started in 1907 - and still wouldn't have 1300 posts! ;)

xx,
Katherine
