I won a Blog giveaway!!

I am so excited! I actually won a blog giveaway at Tumblefish Studio. Marsha Jorgensen is the absolute greatest and I've sung her praises before. Here's the excerpt from the Marsha's announcement at her blog explaining the prize:

"There are more winners! For the rest of you, I have drawn six other names to complete my part of two very special prizes I won earlier this year. One from Terri of Pringle Hill and one from Cathy of Reflections of a Ramblin' Girl. Both of these talented ladies had a drawing to win a surprise piece of art sometime in the year after the drawing. The recipients of the prizes had to also promise to pay it forward and send three more pieces of art to three other people. So, the six of you listed below need to send me your addresses as well so that I can truly surprise you sometime in the next 12 months with a piece of art from little ol' me. You may receive a set of limited edition prints, several ATC's or a larger original piece - time will tell and you will just have to wait and see. I may contact you just before mailing so you know to look for it in your mailbox. Now, you were not given the opportunity to enter into this drawing and may not wish to participate by sending on three pieces yourself. In this case, I say you can fudge if you promise to do three random acts of kindness in whatever way you can, whether it is sending art or doing something special for someone who needs it. I leave it up to you."

Isn't that the coolest?! It's just what my motivation and inspiration needed; to be asked to 'pay it forward' by giving away 3 pieces of art or doing a random act of kindness for someone who needs it. I can hardly wait.

I'll soon have my 100th blog post and in blogland, that is a big deal. I'd been wondering how to mark the event and now I know. I'll come up with some way to choose a winner and be thinking of some sort of prize that will be worth winning. Maybe a collage or maybe a few vintage images from my stash. I'll try to think of what I'd like to be surprised with and do something along those lines.

It will be an honor to participate in my own giveaway; I've had so much help from selfless souls who have been so patient with my questions. If I can brighten someone's day for even 5 minutes I'll be delighted knowing I did even that. My family and I have been so blessed with good health and loyal family and friends; it's truly a privilege to simply be able to 'be nice' to someone just because I want to.

DH has 'the crud'. That's what we've always called it in our house; it covers a cold, flu, bronchitis, whatever we happen to have. This is his 2nd round with it and I certainly hope he kicks it soon. AND I hope I don't get it again; I'm getting over my mild case finally. I'm trying to stay away from him but that's kinda tough to do.

Well, I'm off to think of what I can do for my 1st giveaway and to mark my 100th blog post coming up very soon. Happy Tuesday!!
