This is my nr. 101 blog-post. So, so much has happened since my first post. Shy as I was about blogging, I didn´t even dare to write that it was my first post!!! That was in july 2011, 5 months after I began painting again. 101 definitely calls for a celebration! So, a bit like 1001 nights fairytales, I decided to make a 101 blogpost give-away, and here it comes….
THE GIVEAWAY HAS 5 WINNERS.
Those who win can choose between the two prizes below:
Prize A: two A4 prints (yes, two prints per person, signed by me and ready to frame), or….
Prize B: 4 Big double postcards (can be used as luxury cards or small prints).
So, keep on reading or skip impatiently to the bottom of this post for the details about how to enter the giveaway (I don´t mind at all!!!).
(Above is a selection of 20 different A5 big double cards. The winners may choose any 4 of those if they go for the postcards)
Here´s more words for those who like a small story:
Since february 2011 I have been on a journey that has been incredibly joy-filled. I have written a bit about it here and here. It has involved beginning to paint again after 15 + years, selling and exhibiting my work, producing a line of postcards and posters, opening a web-shop, and beginning writing this blog. But more than anything, it has involved so many heart-warming meetings, often with people I have never met before. Kind people who reached out either here on the blog or amongst my dear FB friends (you are welcome too, just send me a friend-request). I have enjoyed the openess and kindness to the fullest!!!
(Prints and cards from the webshop ready to be sent by mail to kind people all over the world)
People I didn´t know before has offered to be volunteer-agents for selling the cards and posters in their city, building new contacts with shops in different countries. I know it´s been the kind of bliss that often follows anything new-born on this planet, like kittens or toddlers that seem to have protectors coming from out of the blue, rescuing them from dangers they had no idea existed.
I could not have gone this alone. I needed help to be able to find my way through so much new territory, and to carry on. I believe we all need help from time to time, and that our actions, however small at first, are our calling for the kind of help we need to be able to fulfil a certain job. We just have to be willing to take the first step, the first small action, even if that is simply asking someone for help.
So, dear you, whoever you are: I am so glad you are here!
