Or is that Four Candles? (sorry... couldn't resist). Today is my blog's fourth birthday... four years of writing! I certainly didn't imagine it would ever last this long, but here I am still going. So much has happened in the past four years... the start and demise of a degree, several significant birthdays, some lovely holidays, the aquisition of a flock of hens and the digging of a vegetable garden, the onset of type 1 diabetes for one son and and earthquake for another, and loads of cakes but mostly it has been pretty insignificant day to day ramblings. And as a little thank you for sticking with me I thought a gift was in order. After all, presents and birthdays go together! (and cake of course... raspberry and white chocolate muffins today!)
So in keeping with my recent sketchbook posts, I have made a little sketchbook to give away. It is quite small, just about 4" square and is covered with some marbled paper brought back from Florence two years ago.
Inside, the pages are made from watercolour paper so fine for filling with wet media.
And as well as the book, I'll include a new set of Koh-i-nor inks and some other art bits and bobs.
So if you would like to win this mini art kit all you have to do is leave a comment on my birthday blog today.
If you want more than one chance of winning then you can increase your chances by becoming a follower of my blog (although followers seem to either appear or not depending on which browser is being used) - this will apply if you are already a follower. To to increase your chances even further you can become a fan of my facebook page by clicking "Like" on the sidebar link. See... I'm shameless... I'll do anything to get more people to follow me.
So leave a comment and be sure to let me know if you are a follower or fan or both and I'll pick a winner on Wednesday next week (27th July).
