What...1500 Followers?!!! I've got to have a giveaway!!!

I've loved blogging from day one.
I couldn't EVEN believe that someone would visit my little ol' blog
and care what was going on in my life or what I was up to!
And then to actually check in on a daily basis?
UNBELIEVABLE!

I just want you to know how much I love it though....
I love your precious comments and that you care enough to come by here ~
and most of all, how I cherish your friendship!!!!
I'm offering up a simple piece of art that I created for Pam's book


The artwork is a plate that I've collaged with a few images and trims...
easily hung with a plate hanger!
I love, LOVE the image that I found in Mary's




Can you see it on the left hand page? It's looks so tiny but it's about the size of a luncheon plate.




So, simply comment ON THIS POST and I would love to send this to one of you!!!
Please leave your email if you don't have a blog....
The giveaway ends next Sunday evening, July 24th at 6:00 pm EST ~




And one last pic....my precious granddaughter, growing like a little WEED!!!!




Have a beautiful Monday precious friends!!!!
Hugs and love,
Dawn

These little ones grow up way to fast don't they?
My "little" granddaughter is 7, my youngest grandson just turned 5... it just can't be. I've been reading your blog daily for quite some time now and only recently have left comments. I'm shy, even in this medium!!! Ha. Needless to say, I'm glad you're here and share with us all.

You are always such a grateful person that it is no wonder your blog has done so well. I finally started mine several weeks ago.I am still figuring things out and only have time for one post a week, but it's a start! I have already gotten 3 commissions from it! Thanks Dawn for being so kind to your followers. You can see why your Karma comes back to you in so many lovely ways!

What a milestone! I check your blog every day (get up, shower, check blogs) and I am always inspired. I love that you share your wonderful designs - and I'm at 26 and counting on the rolls of seam binding!!

Keep up the fab work!
Hope I can get this posted as I always get a message that I have to open a "blogger" account. "Google" act doesn't work so will try Anonymous and hope for success.

Maggie said...

You always are so sweet and humble in your postings...and 1500 people think so, too! I am such a newbie at this, I finally figured out how to even post the "followers" gadget on my blog (but after the Where Bloggers Create tour, I am now so tickled to have NINE!! A far cry from 1500, but now I have something to aspire to). I just got the book your plate was featured in...I'd love to win it:-)
