Well, that is way more than enough seriousness for me! Now, on to something fun. Speaking of my community of art pals, I recently hosted a page swap, and the other night we met so I could give everyone their completed books. I did covers for everyone and bound the books with my mighty Cinch. We also had some good food and drink. Our theme was Spring/Nature and these pages are just packed with flowers, birds, and butterflies. I think the books are wonderful, even more so because my friends worked in them.
Now, what to do as a 500th post celebration.......if there was something I showed you on this blog that you really liked, leave a comment here and whoever Mr. Random.Org picks will get something I'll make especially for them, inspired by the piece they mention. Or maybe, if I haven't already given it away, they'll get the original piece. And yes, even if you live ten time zones away, if you are picked, I'll send it to you.
Again, thanks everyone for stopping by, leaving a comment when you can, and helping me feel like I'm part of a much larger community that "gets" me.
