a big thank you!

December 17, 2008

As I wrap up the last of my Christmas commissions, and prepare for a great break from work, I’d just like to take a moment to thank all of you who have helped support my work this holiday season.  It’s been so much fun to create for you, new clients and old friends.

Oh there’s nothing I love more than tacking a pretty pinwheel bow on a fresh work of art!

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…
