Just needed a couple of days to relax, unwind, and celebrate Christmas with my mother. Good food, great presents, lots of sugary things that are absolutely no good for me........you know, the holidays, Christmas, whatever you call it, it's just that time of year to appreciate what you have and who is in your life.
If you are in the United States, you are living under a rock if you don't know Oprah is going to have her OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network). Kind of bums me out, because she's taking over the Discovery Health channel, which is what I watch when I can't sleep. Okay, now for the bottom line_______________________ I am branching out. I'm going to make this a REAL Blog, the way I intended it to be. By the end of this week, I'm going to have tabs for you to go to to look at my work, cards I have received from swaps, and some very basic tutorials. Many of them may be tutorials you have already seen, but it will be my product at the end. Credit will be given to the original poster of the tutorial. I'd like to do some sketch challenges, color challenges and eventually a blog hop. I'm so happy I have my 10 followers thru Google friend connect, I also have some from Twitter and Feedburner. I didn't realize how many people were coming to see me ! Once I get 25 followers thru Google Friend connect, I will give some blog candy away to one or two lucky followers. Get me to 100 followers, and it will be even BIGGER !!
The Christmas season was rich with giveaways, but I suspect that kind of traffic is going to scale back a bit. There are magazines and manufacturers who have weekly giveaways, and I will try to keep up with them as I have been. One of my tabs will include my favorite companies, and another will list the giveaways. Blog Hops and product releases often result in prizes too, so as much as I can, I will follow those and report back to you.
So, while the dust settles and then stirs up again, nice things will be happening here. Please stay with me and let me know how you feel about whats going on !
