I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I can't believe Christmas 2009 has come and gone. Looking ahead to the new year I have a desk calendar I am giving away for subscribing to my blog. (this is also my way of trying to blog better in 2010)
This calendar is made with a Close to My Heart My creations display album, of course also CTMH paper. The album itself retails for $7.95. I will draw a name on January 1st from those who become subscribers to this blog. Just enter your email and then click on the subscriber tab on the left hand side. As a subscriber you will be updated via email everytime I post on my blog. I am hoping (new years resolution) to be able to post new artwork, specials etc. every week at least. I have added a picture and a page or 2 from the calendar. I will contact the winner of the drawing via email. Thanks for subscribing.
