I recently realized that this post would be my 400th. Which is hard to fathom, that you’ve put up with me this long…
So, in light of 400 posts through a couple of years, it’s time for a little giveaway. Well, a giveaway and an announcement.
Remember my last post? Where I poured my heart out, and put a list up– my rambling list of things I have wanted to do? The one where I said something about creating with my hands and resting? I’ve been doing that. A lot. And dreaming. And starting a little shop of sorts on etsy.com. I have found that making creative things with my hands relaxes me, and keeps my mind in a good place. So I’m sharing that shop with you now, and giving away 3 items from my etsy shop, ElizabethSt to 3 different readers. The item can be of your choice, one item per winner. I’m going to announce the 3 winners on Tuesday, Sept. 21st. To win, you need to leave a comment with your first name (no initials, sorry) and your email address. (Address will not be published.) BUT. The comment has two requirements: 1) A little survey of what you’d like to see on this blog going forward– what type of posts are your favorite? Do you like only photos and wish I’d zip my lip? Do you like to hear about the day to day? Are there any types of posts you miss seeing? And, most importantly, #2) I’d like the comment to include your favorite quote, or some little snippet of wisdom you’ve carried with you. Something meaningful and inspiring. (Please, nothing untoward.) Something to make us all smile. Because I don’t know about you, but I can stand to do a little more smiling lately.
(There’s also a new link in the menu bar up top. Check often; things are updated and changed frequently.)
