My Blog's Anniversary

Wow, it's hard for me to believe that five years ago, this month of May, I started blogging. I remember that I was apprehensive about blogging and I really didn't know how much I would blog or if I would enjoy blogging.

Today, I'm very happy that I started blogging back then and can honestly say that I've enjoyed it immensely. I think the top benefit I've gotten out of blogging is "meeting" so many lovely people who have stopped by my blog and making wonderful cyber friendships.


To celebrate my five-year anniversary, I am giving away a copy of the Twelve by Twelve book to one lucky reader. Please leave me a comment here and you will be in the drawing. I will pick a winner on the morning of May 30.

When you comment, please make sure I have a way to contact you.  Thanks to all of you for stopping by my blog.  I enjoy your visits very much.

  4. Well I, for one, am delighted that you not only started to blog but that you have continued to do so! I really enjoy your work and find a lot of education and interest in equal proportion from following the developing projects. Your artwork speaks to me, and it DEFINITELY whispers sweet nothings! *G*
