100th Post

Here it is! My 100th Post! 

This is exciting to me. When my husband looked kind of blank about my plans and then asked me why this was a big deal I didn't really have an answer for him. On further thought I've decided it is an affirmation. I decided to do a blog and I've stuck with it. I've had a certain amount of success in positive comments and I enjoy it. The blog has opened up new possibilities and visions for me. I look at the world a little differently.

As promised I am having a giveaway. Everybody who leaves a comment to this post before Tuesday, September 21will be entered into a drawing. I will put all the names into a hat and draw one lucky winner.

So, what is the prize, you ask?

A large goodie bag full of vintage and new papers, fabrics, sequin waste, dried flower petals, fibers, buttons, beads, trims, and my Lillian Russell tag, "She Dreamed."

So please, spread the word, if you aren't a follower please become one. Help me celebrate this blogging milestone. With your support there will be more to come.    I dreamed for a long time about having a blog. I've dreamed most of my life about becoming a writer and an artist. Dreams come true but only if there are supportive people around you.
Thank you.

  1. Congrats Rita on your 100th post. And please don't put me in for the drawing as you know I'm weeding out. So please send me your check and your mailing address so I can get your box in the mail. I will fix you up with sweet goodies. Thanks, Mollye

  2. Good for you, Rita. You stuck with it, and here you are. Isn't it so much fun, though, to have a blog and show your stuff. I'm glad you jumped in so we get to see your beautiful art. Sox

  11. Congratulations on your 100th post and for keeping up your blog...I'm scared to even attempt one as I'm not a tech geek. I don't have a scanner to upload photos and don't really know how to post the photos to share my art work. So good for you for sticking with it.

  16. Remember the Bee Gees song....I started a joke, that started the whole world laughing? (I'm singing as I write this) Well, I started a blog, and have been remiss at writing in it. So your post made me want to return to my blog and blog, blog, blog away. Thanks for the incentive and congratulations on 100! Awesome.

  26. Goodie bags rock! Congrats on your 100th post!

    I think beyond the notion of an affirmation, you are participating inherently in creating community, and community of your choosing and design. I know for me, as I more fully grow into myself this is important. Glad to have found your blog!

  27. As a fellow blogger I understand just how you feel. Maintaining a blog takes some determination and the words don't always flow. Or the words do flow but there's nothing to show! What surprises me is how some people, folks I've never met, become so important to me. I care about what they say, I care about their accomplishments and I worry about them when life throws them curves.

    I look forward to your continued success.

  32. Congratulations on your 100th. post, Rita! Don't worry, my husband gives me 'kinda blank' looks all the time, but I get it. I want to start a blog; I even have a blog page set up (if that's the correct wording) but I've never posted because I don't know how? My daughter helped me get my page/name but she lives out of state...anyway, you post has encouraged me to figure it out and START. I'm now following you and maybe someday you'll be following me. I wish you continued success and many blessings!
