Six Year Blog Anniversary GIVEAWAY CLOSED





This little piece of art was my first post six years ago on this blog. I post more images than words, but you know what they say about "a picture'. To celebrate my six years, I am giving away two art books at the end of the month:



Kelly Rae Roberts "Taking Flight", and Rice Freeman-Zachery's "Living the Creative Life".



Both books are very inspirational and have plenty of eye candy as well.



Just leave a comment for the random drawing, and please continue to visit here.



Thank-you all for the nice comments over the last six years!




Dede

GIVEAWAY CLOSED
The Random drawing took place live on my Ustream show (Thurs. June 30)
The winners were ArteDar (Taking Flight by Kelly Rae Roberts book).
Desi won (Living the Creative Life by Rice Freeman Zachery book).
Dale Anne won as well, but because she already had both books, she asked to have another drawing in her stead. However, she will be receiving the latest issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine!
Thanks everyone for all your kind comments!

Congratulations on your blogoversary Dede. It's been great getting to know you on UStream and you are so inspirational!
This is a generous giveaway, and that "Living the creative life" sounds awesome.
I already have the Kelly Rae Roberts book, so please don't include me in that draw - give the others more chances ;-)
Take care and I will return to visit your blog again. See you on the UStream.

Felicitation Dede!

Like everyone else I could say that you are very inspirational but the truth is I believe it goes a little deeper than that; you are an art mentor with a natural ability to engage your guests during your wonderful tutelage.

Jamie Lynn said...

your ability to convey your passion for art by sharing your know how, not to mention your artwork gives encouragement to all new & old art'ers alike.

thanks for 6 years & cheers for 6 more.
