Today marks the first anniversary of my blog!! When I started this, I had no idea where it would take me. At first, it seemed that I was dropping pebbles into a bottomless well. Other than a few friends who subscribed, there didn't seem to be anyone reading what I wrote. Worse, I was self-conscious about chatting with a world of strangers, telling them about my work and my life. But somewhere along the line, I relaxed and began to enjoy writing, I got some subscribers, people started leaving comments, and out of all this, I made some new and valued friends.
This small painting of one of my silly salt shakers is my way of saying thanks for joining me over the past year. Sometime this coming week, I'll draw a name from the pool of people who have left comments on my blog this year and the winner will get this little painting. I'll announce the results of the drawing next weekend.
I'm also going to have a big surprise for you this coming week. Please be sure to stop back Tuesday to see what's up!!!
