Blogoversary & Give Away!

Hello Friends,

It has been exactly one year since I opened my "studio" to you and began this blog. You may remember these little feet waiting at the front door...



...and I asked you to take a seat and enjoy the view while we were still under construction.





Well, it is that little person's birthday today too. Because of that, this post will be brief because I have to get ready for a birthday dinner celebration for our little big five year old.

I did not plan to start a blog on August 11th of last year...in fact I did not plan to start a blog at all. However, I am so pleased that I did. It has been a joy getting to know some of you ~ from Italy to San Diego, from Sweden to Seattle, and all over. It surprises me every day when I look at the map of visitors to my site. I have had almost 14,000 visitors to date, and for me that is a LOT. I know some of you other talented ones out there get that in a month or so, but I am happy to be discovered.

This blog keeps me creative in so many ways. You all know what I mean about that ~ it makes us think about all we do during the day, what we see, what we read, how we express those discoveries here. I think that I will continue for at least another year...

But for now, I want to announce that I am going to be giving away some good stuff {'cannot tell you what yet} to thank you for your kind words over this past year, your acknowledgements on some of your blogs, all the Etsy Treasuries in which fellow Etsians have included my photography and paintings {some of which have even made the Front Page!}, and of course those of you who have purchased and published my work.

So, this is the deal ~ on Friday, August 14th I will post what I am giving away and let you know what the scoop is. In the meantime, there will be snippets and sneak peeks of the goods on my Flickr photostream. There are even a few clues here if you do some clicking.

See you then. Ciao amici,

Suzanne

Hey Friends,

I am happy that you could celebrate with me! Next week I will let you all know who gets the goodies. I wish I could give something to each of you.
