Shopping trip with Mom and giveaway preliminaries

Had a fantastic day with my Mom. I have to say she's my best friend and we never get tired of hanging out. We shopped a bit and talked a lot! She is retired and doesn't go too many places during the normal course of her days. She and I always have a great time no matter what we do.

I found 2 blouses and a pair of jeans that made their way home with me. Mom was more successful at resisting the 'buying bug'. I could've bought tons more but made myself stop by not going into any more stores haha I have been searching for some ankle boots that I like but have not yet found 'the perfect pair'. Oh well, I've got enough shoes already. More than enough if you listen to my husband.

I have done nothing artistic today other than view other people's work. I get so inspired by viewing blogs and flickr photostreams. There are some truly gifted artists out there and I am so glad they post their creations on the web.

I added a list of image freebie sites to my sidebar tonight. I will update the list as I find new sites as well but there's enough there already to give anyone several days of web time. I LOVE image freebies and the list I added tonight never disappoints. I hope you enjoy it and please leave some blog love comments for these selfless artists.

I am swiftly coming up on my 100th blog post and I am planning a giveaway. Not of digital images but of 'real' stuff that I've collected from here and there. This is a good way of doing something fun on my blog, giving back to my readers, hopefully stirring up more interest in my blog and the best part, cleaning some things out of my craft room LOL! I promise that the giveaway won't be just stuff I no longer want; it will have some cool things and be a sampling of more than one genre of craft products. No junk either (unless it's of the artistic variety) . More on the giveaway in the upcoming posts.

Have a great weekend and God Bless You!

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blogs (and adding me to the list on yours!) It's so ironic- I am trying to come up with my giveaway too. The other day talking with another blogger I decide on doing it for my 100th post. Great minds think alike:)
