I had this whole post written up and published but I had the wrong person listed as the winner-I'm so sorry!! I'm glad I went back and looked but I feel bad, I hope I got it deleted before anyone read it?! My son picked number 30, and that is
(Geniega, please email me your address and I will get the book out to you either tomorrow or Monday) Thank you to everyone who entered!!!! I have a few other books to giveaway, but I have to figure out which one to do first, so sometime this weekend I'll post it:) have a good evening Trish
I was trying to thank everyone that entered my giveaway individually, but it was taking too long, and you know I'm trying not to stay online so long-so I just wanted to say THANKS!! I'm excited:) I will have Nate pick a number tomorrow evening-
Just what I needed! Another thing to keep me glued to my computer-I just found stumble (or stumble it?) and after I got done with the giveaways I started searching through web pages by clicking the stumble button on the toolbar-I can tell that this is going to keep me online more. I LOVE finding new sites-I don't always READ them, I bookmark them for "later" and forget all about them. Occasionally I go through some of them, but I'm afraid it would take years to get through all the links I have saved (ok, not years, but a long time). I'm sure there's some good stuff I'm missing-probably my new favorite web site/blog is lost in my bookmarks, along with sites I book-marked that I no longer am interested in. Oh well, I'm sure I'll soon find some other new thingy online to occupy my time. I was thinking about this today, as I often do-I sketched some today, did a background in my art journal, and worked on a canvas-and that was just in between my online giveaway entering. Think of all I could get done if I would STAY AWAY from the internet like I said I would, until 10 or 11pm! I would get better at drawing, grow creatively (I think the more you create, the more creative you are-or so it seems to me), reach my goals THIS YEAR!! I don't want to look back in 2010 and regret not reaching those goals, setting the same ones for the new year. What is more important? What do I want more? Open an online shop....or spend hours wasting my time? Learn how to make my own journals.....or waste a year online clicking the stumble button? Create art....or mindlessly go through life entering giveaways (there were 900+ giveaways in the list I started on last night and finished at 12am the next evening-and there were still some I skipped) Ok, I'm done-I know the answer-it's just I have a lifetime of procrastination and not believeing in myself to overcome. I'm too tired to think about it anymore tonight-it's almost 1:30 am and time to lie down and read for a bit before I go to sleep. have a good Thursday!!
I really wanted to play with the watercolors, practice sketching, but when I opened up the box (I made a little travel pallet) there was MOLD on my watercolors!! I threw them out and now I'm going to wait until I can get some GOOD watercolors! So instead I just got my pencils and paintbrush out to practice with
not quite what I was trying for, but I enjoyed it:)
