Today is my birthday (yay for me!)
and i celebrated with a few things...
one of them being a Dairy Queen treat with my son.
Then i decided to put a bit of order in my blue room.
i'm no clean freak, but when things get so messy
that i don't even want to go in the room,
it's time for order. ;-)
When i finish a painting or drawing,
it tends to just sit on the corner of my table.
Eventually, that one painting turns into 3, or 5, or 10
and i just thought it might be cool to put them on the wall.
Some are copies of my work, some are originals.
I bought this ball of string and tiny little clothespins
for like $2 at the Dollar Store. Gotta love it.
Cheap can still be efficient.
Two little nails at each end, tied the string,
use the cute little pins to hang the paper, and voilà.
A few other things i did to celebrate the day...watched a movie with my son,
chatted with a few friends,
enjoyed a glass of wine,
had a nice dinner,
and went for a walk (despite the crappy weather...)
did this little baby for a giveaway!!
What a better way to celebrate my birthday than to have a giveaway!?
the size is 6" x 9", so if you're the big winner,
it shouldn't cost you a fortune to frame...
Or if you prefer, you can always just tack it on your wall as is. :-)
I've seen a few blogs that had a giveaways,
and they had this fancy shmancy way of picking the winner's name,
done electronically, some randomizer, exact name picker
more accurate than NASA's moon landing gear.
I somehow got it in my head that if ever i had a giveaway,
i'd have to figure out how do this electronic shnazy picking a name bit.
Then i thought, "hey, i have an idea!
How 'bout i just pick names out of a hat,
like they did in the good ol' days?!?"
(notice i said they and not we...?!) ;-)
Yeah. We're picking names out of a hat.
Or in my case, out of a bowl, cause i have no friggin' hats in the house.
Fair and square.
So anyone interested in getting this original little baby by moi,
just leave me your name in the comments,
and give me ONE word that describes
why you live where you live in the world.
(family? job? responsibilities? etc...)
Not too difficult, right?
I'll be picking a winner this Wednesday, June 27
and i'll post the name on Thursday, June 28,
so you have a few days to get your comments in...
For those who don't make it, don't worry.
I'll be having more giveaways. :-)
My way of saying THANK YOU
to all of you who have made the choice to follow my blog,
and to leave such heartfelt comments...
