Art Giveaway to Celebrate 20,000 Hits


I cannot honestly believe that I am celebrating 20,000 hits on my blog. I resisted blogging for such a long time. Then one Sunday I thought to myself, "I wonder how difficult it would be to create a blog?" and just started playing. Three hours later, I had one and had even named it. It has changed face here and there thanks to a lovely friend who has talent in creating blog headers. In celebrating 20,000 hits, I'm celebrating newfound friendships, a network of talented and generous artists and opportunities for learning and growth that I would never imagined possible.


This is a little assemblage that I created from a cigar box top. The little fellow atop the elephant just makes me laugh and I hope he'll bring someone out there in blogland amusement as well. Please feel free to leave me a comment and I will draw for a winner on Sunday. I will gladly mail around the world so all of my International friends are welcome to enter....sure hope you will.

Wow--Heather, what a huge accomplishment for you!! Blogging is a wonderful way for you to really catalog your progression as an artist, it's almost like creating your own book. The aspect of making all these wonderful connections along the way is truly the icing on the cake, isn't it!

Val Foster said...

Congrats on 20,000 hits. That is quite an accomplishment, my friend. I'm proud of you and you deserve it. You have a great blog with beautiful art.

I'm closing in on 10,000 hits, but it will be a while before I reach the hits you've had. Although I must admit, when I started my blog, I never anticipated the number of hits I've gotten. And I put off doing it for over a year. Now I'm so glad I jumped in and did it.

And I'm glad you did too. Kudos to you, Heather!

Your piece with the little boy on the elephant is just adorable. It reminds me of when my nephew loved to go to the flea market in Florida with my Brother and his wife. When my hubby and I went down to visit them he asked "Do you want to ride the elephant?!" He was only two years old and LOVED getting up on the elephant with whoever would ride with him. No fear in that boy's heart! He's now 18 years old but I'll never forget that day. I didn't realize you could actually ride them there so it was amazing to see that little guy on top of one with his Mom....Best wishes on your 20,000 hits. It's just the beginning for you. You do incredible work and I'm a huge admirer.
