Update ~ 6/19 12:30am EST ~ the giveaway is closed.
I know I just had a giveaway ~ but yesterday was a great day and I need to share my happiness with others!
Yesterday was the 300th post on my blog ~ it was also Flag day ~ AND it was my birthday ~ plenty of reasons to celebrate!
I truly enjoy the creative outlet this blog has become and I have loved having a place to share my thoughts, my faith, happenings in my life, and most of all my grandbabies (okay their parents too!) with others...especially my family in Michigan and friends that I don't see often enough. It's a connection that's comforting to have.
The land of blog is filled with wonderful places to visit ~ places I might otherwise never see and places "right around the corner" that I never knew existed. It's filled with a wealth of incredible creativity. I'm inspired everyday. There are so many other blogs out there! Written by some really wonderful and very talented people ~ more about some of my favorites on my 7/2/09 blogaversary post.
Having a blog has also been a learning experience as far as the computer & programs go. I know a teeny bit about HTML that I didn't know before ~ but I still need Kevin's help for most things. It's fun to try and figure things out and there are some great blogs that help me when I can't. I've always loved taking photos and having a place to put them has made me want to take better ones. But, in the meantime, I've discovered ways to make my not so great photos look a little bit better!
Anyway ~ enough of that. To celebrate my 300th post AND Flag Day AND my birthday I'd like to have this GIVEAWAY:
This is a postcard size piece of art that I made. The red border isn't part of the piece, it's just the background of the scan that I did.
Here's a photo of the art card along with a few other goodies.
Uncle Sam is standing on a little box ~ perfect for hiding a tiny trinket in. The winner will also receive a mustard gold metal star, a love magnet and a little patchwork heart.
