>I smell a GIVEAWAY

In honor of my 200th post, I am offering a GIVEAWAY. I thought I’d make this an even more personalized giveaway by making it “winner’s choice.” In the past, I have given away an altered canvas, altered slide mailers and an altered CD. I thought it would be a good idea to offer these prizes again but this time, the winners (yes, there will be more than one) will decide which prize they want, what colours I should use and a specific theme if they are so inclined. Of course, there will be other things included in the prize like a paper spool collage, an ATC and maybe other things too (have to keep some surprises, right?)

To be entered in this giveaway, all you have to do is comment on this post. You have until September 7th 11:59pm to be eligible. I’ll announce the 2 winners on Monday the 8th. Good luck!


>Making a list

Maybe it’s because I work in a school but to me, September marks a new year. And often, it’s when I make my “resolutions.” This year, I decided to take it one month at a time. So my list is as follows:

1. Be ACTIVE every day of the week

2. Eat HEALTHY food

3. GO OUT at least once downtown

4. Be CREATIVE (that one is easy enough)

5. Be THRIFTY/frugal


7. Do at least one NEW thing

8. READ in my spare time (forget television for a while)

9. mostly, have FUN

10. and SMILE whenever possible

It all starts today.

I had promised a giveaway for today. Last week was a bit chaotic and overwhelming so I didn’t get a chance to post here or to do anything specific for a giveaway but it will happen anyway. See the post above for details.
