400,000 and counting...

That big number was reached sometime Sunday afternoon.  To say Thank You for your loyal readership over the years, I'm giving away two bundles of goodies, and I'll do a separate drawing for each.  The package on top is a selection of eco dyed fabrics, and lace (some of which has also been eco dyed).  The package below is an assortment of mail art goodies, including a snack baggie full of international stamps.

To enter the drawings, leave a comment on this or any other post of mine this week, and tell me which drawing you want to enter.  Also let me and other readers know what you're working on creatively this year.  I'll take entries through this Friday, May 22.  If for some reason Blogger won't let you leave a comment (it happens), email me to do so.

Good luck, and thanks again for reading!  xx

Congrats on reaching 400,000. That's pretty amazing and should make you proud!

I dabble in lots of things like book making, ATC cards, charm trades, jewelry, knitting and quilting. Can you tell I have a hard time focusing? Sometimes it's so very overwhelming that nothing gets done. Sigh...

I like the mail art package and would like to be entered into that drawing.

Thanks,
Ilene

Congrats on your numbers, that is excitint. When I first saw your post today I thought that first photo looked yummy, and thought it was a new collage you had created. Needless to say, that would be my choice - thanks!

Well, that's a nice big number! The fabric looks interesting - I'll throw my hat in the ring for that one. Thanks for the chance.

Hummmm.....the fabric does look quite lovely.....but mostly i want to say congratulations to you for all your posts! i know it takes a lot of effort to keep a blog up and running and we appreciate that you do. Here's to your next 400,000! LOL. (I know, you many not want to think about that right now....)

Congratulations on the 400,000! All the time and effort you've put into sharing your artistic journey has inspired me and, obviously, so many others. I admire your work but I have been most inspired by your words when you speak to the struggle it sometimes is to express ourselves creatively. My own work is shifting from realistic collage to abstraction. I'd love to use some of those stamps in my collage. Thanks so much!

Again congratulations...you have posted most days and have been a regular stop for me...thank you!
I continue working with fabric with a strong influence of the 'ancient' as subject matter. Love my archeology mag. as well as personal spiritual exploration. Love your fabric gift packet!

I've created postcards for years, but never Internationally. What fun that must be! If I'm lucky enough to win, I'll try that!

Congratulations on reaching this milestone!

After a decade of trying to split my creative time between writing and the fiber arts, I decided to ease up on the former, at least for a while. I'm exploring new ideas and techniques -- and feeling a lot calmer. (To that end, I'd love to have the fabric bundle.)

Many congratulations on reaching 400,000 views - an extraordinary number!
As you might guess, the fabric bundle would be my choice should I win.
I'm working at the moment mostly in black and white and trying to develop abstract images in my textiles and on paper. The thing I'm enjoying most right now is experimenting with mark-making and am managing at least one mark a day (well most days anyway). It's fantastic practice and only takes a few moments.
