Melody Martin! Congrats!  Special thanks to all of you who entered!  It was great fun, and I look forward to many more contests in the future…so be sure to check back once in a while 🙂

Just to show the true randomness of the process…here’s how it worked.  I assigned a number to each entrant, by the order in which they left comments.  Melody, just happened to be number 12.  With the help of this little site, I generated the winning number…

And there you have it!  Anywho…hope you all had a stellar weekend!  Nick and I spent some time in Hilton Head with his folks, and fried our little faces, but it was great to take some time to enjoy summer in all it’s glory!

hugs, and thanks again to all who participated in this little project!

I’ve had an overwhelming amount of traffic to this blog the past two days, and I’m eternally grateful to all of you who have spread the word, and entered my Blog-A-Versary Give-A-Way.  It’s so much fun!  (there’s still time to enter…just see the previous post)

In other news, how about this lucky coincidence…just so happens that Victoria Bennett Beyer has included Lee Lee’s Sweet Tea in her Etsy Treasury!  This is my first treasury feature that I know of…Thanks a million Vickie, for including me and congrats on a gorgeous Treasury!

If you’d like to find out more about this treasury and the fabulous items featured…CLICK!

This next little bit is for all you loyal blog readers…I’ve been negligent when it comes to posting new work…I’ve got my hands in about 15 projects that are 90% done…but I’ve just been bursting at the seams to launch my Green Collection, and haven’t had a spare moment to scan it all into the computer…but here’s a small taste…hope you like!

I haven’t thought of a clever name for this one yet…but it sure does remind me of margaritas in the summer time…feel free to comment with a suggestion or two!

Thanks again for all the love!  hugs~

Can you believe it? I’ve been pluggin’ away at this whole blog world now for a good 365 days. I never dreamed when I started this little adventure, that people would actually find interest in the life of a quirky southern artist…let alone that it would introduce me to so many wonderful friends, artists, colleagues, interesting folks, and more. Within one month of starting this little blog, traffic had more than doubled to my website, and has yet to drop since!

I am incredibly grateful to all of you who have subscribed to this blog, shared your comments and well-wishes with me, posted links, and spread the word! It’s been an incredible journey, and the only way I see fit to thank you all…is to have a Blog-A-Versary Give-A-Way!!! I picked the following Foodie Print for two reasons:

1. I’m drinking it for breakfast…(much like Lee Lee used to do)

2. Lee Lee’s Sweet Tea was one of the original Southern Girl’s Cookbook illustrations, that landed me the gig with the fabulous Skirt! Magazine, and sparked my interest in Food Illustration. So there you have it…
