Today marks John and my engagement anniversary! It has been a whirlwind year (lots of fond memories and many changes) and although I didn’t think it was possible, I feel closer than ever to this wonderful man. Our lives continue to unfold with many blessings, and our love is one of the biggest. Now that we are settled in a new town that we adore, with my studio almost complete and John working at a radio station he LOVES, perhaps we will finally start looking towards the future and begin planning the big day. Although I must admit, I’d much rather cuddle on the couch with him than pick out color themes and dinner menus. I guess that instead of imagining my ‘big day’ and what it would be like, I’ve always just dreamed of finding someone special to spend the rest of my life with…. mission accomplished: one year and counting.
Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog; I can’t believe a year has already gone by since I started sharing my daily creative life on the internet! I am really proud of how much my blog, studio and writing have evolved since my first post, and I can’t wait to see what artistic adventures this next year holds. This celebratory post isn’t just for me, but is also for you, my readers, who have been endlessly supportive, encouraging and motivating. It is such an amazing feeling to know that I’m inspiring others to get creative, just by sharing the on-goings of my practice. As a thank you to the 40 people currently following blog, and as an incentive to encourage regular readers to subscribe to my blog, I am doing a little giveaway! Anyone who is following my blog will be automatically entered to win the pile of nature’s my friend prizes pictured above, which includes a limited edition handprinted moleskine, two fine art gocco prints on paper, 3 glossy postcards, vinyl sticker and mini card. To follow my blog and be automatically entered in the giveaway, just click the “send awesomeness to my inbox” button, located on the right hand side panel of my blog. As well as gifiting away the above treats, I will also be selecting two other lucky blog followers to receive a 10$ OFF coupon in my online shop.
