My next post will be my 200th! Nobody could be more surprised than me that I have made it this long. When I first started blogging in 2006 I wasn't sure what direction this blog would take, and I certainly never dreamed that it could be a source of real meaningful friendships and now partnerships, through Book*Art*Object.
I am so grateful to everyone who has visited my blog, whether that has been a once-only visit, an intermittent drop-by, or the wonderful supportive group who visit me regularly. It is a chance for me to show what I've been up to and to receive valuable feedback on my work. I've been able to share some of the techniques I've learned along the way, and the sense of being able to contribute something, despite my illness has meant so much to me. I am particularly touched by the kindness and support I've felt from some very regular commenters, especially at times of high stress or very low energy.
So to let you know how much I appreciate you all, I've decided to have a Surprise Give-Away to celebrate my 200th Post. There will be three special gifts going out to Three Special People who leave a comment for me on this post between now and midday Sunday 18th April, Australian Eastern Time. At that time I'll use this random list generator to select the three winners. You can compare times here, if you want to know how the times compare in your area.
So go on, give yourself a chance to win, and me a chance to thank you, by leaving a comment now. I'd love to know what drew you to visit me in the first place or why you choose to come back. But most importantly, make sure you leave me an email so I can contact you if you win. Good luck!
Post Script: Sunday 18th
Okay that's it folks - it's 12:07pm and I'm closing the comments for the draw!
I'll be back soon with the results.
