**Second Blogaversary Celebration**

*now closed :)*

almost two years ago (7 Oct 07)  I stepped into the blogging world with big thanks to Pat Sloan for urging me to “just do it” … my life has not been the same since … 905 blog posts later …  I have had help and encouragement from so many of you …

in celebration and thanks to all who visit and share their creativity and support I would like to give away two of my 4 x 6″  (10,16 x 15,24 cm) one of a kind canvases



Precious-MagicPrecious Magic

two names will be drawn … international visitors are most welcome as are people who do not have a blog  (please be sure there is a way for me to contact you if you win) … come one come all

I appreciate everyone’s visits and want to thank you all for popping in now and then and leaving so many thoughtful and kind comments … I treasure all of the special connections blogging has brought my way


to be in the drawing, all you need to do is leave one comment on this post …  the random number generator will pick two winners after midnight EST on 6 October …

Winners will be announced on Wednesday,  7 October

*this post will be stuck at the top of my blog until the drawing  ends on 6 October *

P.S. 1 October: you are all very polite as well, no one pointed out my fuzzy math when I wrote (and now deleted) my average posts being 2.5 per day …doh … more like a little over 1 post a day 🙂
