A Goddess Give Away

This is to celebrate my 100th post! I can't believe I've posted so much. And it amazes me that people like what I do enough to follow my blog. So as a thank you I am giving away this Goddess.

She is about 6 1/2 inches hi. Her word is Peace. I chose her because my son will be going back to Iraq for his second tour in May, and peace is what I wish for us all.

She is made from copper wire and glass beads.
So leave me a comment and on May 1st I will pick a winner by having DH randomly pick a number.
Please make sure I have your E addy so I can let you know if you win.


I have been playing a lot with journal pages this week. Experimenting with paints which his something I never do much.

This came out looking like the view from my kitchen window, so I detailes the trees with a gel pen. You can't see it from the pic tho.
I am surprised by how this turned out, I just smudged paint around without a plan. I used these colors because they were the only tubes of water colors I had that hadn't dried out!
Peace

Peace is such a perfect name for this little lady especially with your son going off to fight. You did a great job on her. Your watercolour is pretty good too. Keep at it you never know where your brush is going to take you. Those dried up watercolours can be used. All you have to do is cut the tubes open and set them each in a tiny container with water and keep mixing until all the colour has come off the tubes. Throw away the tubes and you have watercolour to use. If it dries up just add some more water. I think you can get itsy bitsy plastic jars at the dollar store or walmart.
Congratulations.
