Happy Birthday To Me Plus a Contest
Mostly Sky, 6x6, Oil on Gessobord
So today is my birthday and I think that I am now considered in my mid-forties, rather than the not-much-better-sounding early forties. Sigh.
Well, not much to do concerning the march of time, and today is a very busy day so I must move the pity party along. I have to bake some muffins, get the kids up, and later, I have people coming by to visit my studio. This afternoon I will make my own birthday cake, which might sound pathetic, but I am a good cook and no one wants a store bought cake (OR a cake baked by Doug) on any of our birthdays around here, even me, and even if I have to do all the baking.
And I have also decided to have a little contest here today. Between now and midnight tonight, leave a comment, say happy birthday, tell me how awesome I am even though I am 44 and a bit crabby, or tell me who you are, how you found this blog, etc if you are a lurker.
Tomorrow morning I will put all the names in a hat (or whatever, who has hats anymore?) and my very enthusiastic daughter, Ginger, will draw a name. The winner will get to choose a painting from my sales blog and I'll ship it right off. The only limitation is that I don't want to ship it outside the US (see? cranky) so if you really want a painting and live in the Soviet Union, for example, you'll have to line up a US address for shipping before you say happy birthday to me. Heh.
Oh and the inventory IS a bit low over there, so I will be glad to let the winner choose something at a later date. I want the oh so lucky winner to have a painting they like!
PS. Read my birthday post from last year, it's still my favorite. mmmm, Donny, my love.......
