My 200th post giveaway!!!

Hi everyone, well it's been just over a week since I last posted which I think is probably the longest gap between posts that I have had since I started and boy did I feel out of sorts about that this morning. It's weird that my blog friends and blogland have become such a big part of my life over the last 12 months and really motivates me to continue to be creative. This week was my 10th wedding anniversary, we're busy planning our overseas trip which is fast approaching and to add more stress to our lives we're about to embark on some much needed renovations, part of these renovations includes an art space for me which I am very very excited about! So keep watching as I'll post up pictures when it is finished it will be a little while yet though.

Today I finally got my bum into gear and made time for some art, oh did I also mention it's school holidays? I guess it's no wonder that I have found it hard to sit down and be creative lately. I am currently working on two paintings. I decided my little angel and vampire girl really needed to be in colour, so I shall post that as soon as it's finished.

In the mean time I really wanted to mark this 200th post with a giveaway. So I have found some of my earlier pendants that I still really love and thought I would let you guys have a chance of winning one.

All you have to do is leave a message here and tell me which one you would like and I will pick a winner out of a hat. You have two weeks, so until Tuesday the 27th of April to enter and I will announce the winner on that day.

All 3 of these pendants are prints of my original paintings and sit on a silver plated ball chain, which should be long enough to slip over your head. The square ones are scrabble tile sized and the oval one is approx 2.5cm across and in length.

They are called, from left to right in the first picture Autumn Girl, Pretty lady, and The perfect wave!

Good luck!!!!

Congratulations on your 200th post, Nicola! And your 10th anniversary - I hope you have a wonderful trip! So much going on, rennovations, too?! Wow, I'm jealous..an art studio. But it makes such good sense as you are such a prolific artist! If I won one of your lovely pendants, I'd have to say "Pretty Lady" would be my favorite. I am so happy to "know" you in this blogworld. : )

Wow - 200 posts! Congrats on your anniversary! I love your pendants as you know, so would be happy to recieve any of them. The autumn girl is my favorite tho.

I will be out of the country when you do the drawing so if I happened to win, please don't feel bad if I don't get back to you for a week or so.
Love your work as always!

Smiles!

Congrats on your 200th post! :) I'm standing in line for one of your beauties. All three are gorgeous! But I do have a slight preference for the first one. :)And happy anniversary!

Hi Nicola! I've been so busy this week at work I've only sat to catch up on my favourite blogs now for the first time this week. I'm so glad I did because i wouldnt want to miss a chance to win one of your lovely pendants. I love all three so I'd love a surprise if I won :-))

Hi Nicola - thanks for sending me back here for an update. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, but it's been really stressful with my Mom's surgery and FIL's illness. I'm taking a quick break to visit for a little bit, but I'm nowhere near back to normal. Congrats on your 200th post & 10th anniversary! I hope you have a wonderful trip and good luck with the rennovations! Of course I love all your pendants and your ladies are all beautiful, but I do really like that perfect wave - just something about the colors and movement in it that are very peaceful to me - makes me long for the ocean! Please enter me into your give-away and good luck to everyone, and thanks for hosting!

Hi Nicola,

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog -- I always enjoy getting feedback. :)

I actually came here to tell abou about my little giveaway which is open until April 24. Hah! Now I see that you have a giveaway, too -- what a coincidence. I would be honored to wear your purple perfect wave pendant. As I love purple, it would be definitely perfect for me. :)

Greetings from Munich,
Birgit
