NEST GIVE-A-WAY!!!



When I began blogging my art journey, a year and a half ago, I wasn't sure it would be a lasting endeavor! Technically challenged, nothing came easy! Everything about it was hard...I could barely check my email and nearly gave up on more than one occassion. At this point, I should mention, just in case your interested in starting your own blog, it's not difficult! I was just void of all basic computor and typing skills. But with lot's of help and encouragement from my sweet girl, Beth, I pressed on. The kind words of encouragement from friends Dalia (who started the whole thing & named my blog), Mary, Molly, Amy, Jo Carol, Brandy, Nancy and Jana have pulled me along. . . . thank you girls! Now I can say without hesitation blogging is so much fun!


And so it is with a sense of accomplishment, that today, I celebrate my 100th post! As a way of showing my appreciation to all of you who drop by and visit (whether we know each other or not) I'd like to invite you to enter my 'NEST GIVEAWAY'! This is the nest I painted earlier this week for 'Tuesday Tutorial'. It is a sweet little nest and I'd love to share it with someone who would enjoy having it in their home!
Everyone is invited to participate! Don't be shy! To enter, just leave a comment. . .or become a follower (below left). It's that simple.
Entries will be taken until this Sunday, May 31st, 12:00 PST. The winner will be selected by a randomly from all who enter. I will post the winning entry on Monday, June 1st! Please check back to see if it is you!
Thanks again to all of you for encouraging me along the path to becoming an artist. The future is brighter than ever! Praise God!
Best wishes and blue skies!

I just had to tell you this. Casey and I were looking at my sister in laws blog, seeing my niece make her first attempt at crawling. It was fun to share with Casey. He then said, "Lets look at Roxanne's. I want to see what she puts online." So we did. It just happened to be the Tutoring of painting. He said, "Wow, I am impressed. Roxanne's painting of the nest is really good." He is so funny. He doesn't make comments like that too often. He has to be really impressed. So, I always think your work is great but had to share with you Casey's thoughts! Hope to see you soon! Jody

Sorry, I didn't mean to do it twice. I am just not the greatest at technology

lynnette said...

Wow, can't believe it's # 100.
It is really fun reading the blog and seeing all the great pictures. I am really proud of you for starting this and hanging in there. The nest is really pretty, but since I have one really similar from you, don't count me in.
Love you.

I just came over via Blanca and I cannot tell you how much I love your sweet nest painting. If I weren't so artistically challenged, I would give it a try myself! Happy 100th post by the way! I just reached 300 myself and can hardly believe it!

I would love to win this giveaway and would display the painting ever so proudly here in California...it's beautiful!

(Do you sell your paintings?)

Congrats on your 100th post. I know when I started my blog it just sat there without any info for months before I decided to quit thinking about it and just go for it. I am learning that many times we have to quit just sticking our toes in the water and jump in!
