Happy New Year!

First anniversary giveaways and my word for the year.

Firstly, thank you to everyone who has followed me, commented on and given me encouragement during the first year of my blog. You have all been so wonderful and friendly and I truly appreciate the time you have spent with me.  So as this is the first anniversary and to thank you all, I am doing a giveaway (well 3 actually) which I hope you will like.

This year is going to be very different for me as I will be reaching that magical certain age, so will be retiring from paid employment during the summer and starting a new phase in my life.  At the same time, hoping to sell up and move down to the South Coast.  I have been so  looking forward to this next stage in my life, where I will be able to relax and spend more time on my art, or doing whatever I fancy. So as there will be big and challenging changes for me during this year my word (linked to Geri's What's your word for 2012 blog) will be:  EMBRACE.

Now on to the goody part. There are three giveaways, each lucky person will recieve an owl ACEO and also one of my coffee flower ACEO's.  All 3.5x2.5 inches in size.  The owls are painted on recycled card and envelope paper in acrylics and the flowers are coffee painted backgrounds on watercolor paper with pen.

You can have your name added to the draw up to three times:
  • If you are already a follower of my blog and leave a comment I will put your name down twice. (this is as a thank you for all those who have been following me through the year)
  • New to my blog then follow and leave a comment saying you are now following and I will enter your name once.
  • Follow my on my facebook page (link on the right hand side) and you will also have your name entered.
I will close this giveaway on Thursday 12 January 2012 and then announce the winners a day or so later. You will then need to email me your address. Am happy to post anywhere in the world.

Good luck everyone!

This giveaway has now closed.
