THANK YOU COMPETITION CLOSED
It is time to PAY it FORWARD
I wish to thank all the wonderful people who follow and read my posts. I never thought I would meet so many talented and gifted individuals. Some live so far away from my little island of Australia. Some draw, some paint, some write stories or poetry, some capture life with a camera, or share recipes and some just share their struggles of life. You don’t realise when you leave those comments YOU inspire me to keep thriving, keep walking the tightrope. Helping me to stay accountable to my projects and pushing me through the boundaries of learning. Also reading your stories gives me hope, often laughter and yes even a touch of sorrow, I love reading about your worlds.
Dreams are good but taking the step to live them needs encouragement and I have found that inspiration here.
STEP THROUGH THE DREAM AND MAKE IT A REALITY
I thank you for the follows, I thank those who have gone one step further and subscribed to my newsletter. I have some exciting news, especially if you have enjoyed my illustrations and you are a subscriber. Here is a chance to win an original illustration (I See You) by me, of course. In soft colour pencils. It is already double matted and ready to be framed, shrink wrapped and will be bubble wrapped to post. I wish I could send all my subscribers an original piece of artwork but it’s just not cost-effective. What do you have to do? Nothing, if you are a subscriber you will go straight into the draw. I will enter all the emails and draw one lucky winner.
SUBSCRIBE and WIN
In my next newsletter (MARCH 15th) I will announce the winner. This is my gift to show my gratitude for the amazing support I have received from my subscribers. Yes YOU those who read my newsletter and then email me a response, you astound me. I had one beautiful person send me a voice message of encouragement, (you know who you are). Hitting the reply button does more than you know and I hope I can encourage more people as my email list grows. If you are not a fan of cats, it would make a great gift.
STILL a CHANCE to get in the DRAW
For anyone who follows but has not subscribed to my monthly newsletter. ( I post once a month on the topics of being creative and share the journey of writing novels and picture books.) You have until the 15th of March to get on board and a chance to win this picture. I love the feedback from the people on my email list and have made some very strong links of friendship and writing buddies. If you decide to join I will not share your details and my newsletter is a little extra boost of writing from the artist where I share my ups and downs, learning the craft of writing and illustrating. A little more of what you see here only up close and personal.
If you have not subscribed already please remember to also download my free e-book Minuscule Moments, words and images to lift the soul, inspiring pages of hope after darkness and share it with those in need of a lift.
We all have tough days, days we wish went quickly, days of sadness and joy. My blog has been mostly about celebrating the minuscule moments because sometimes that is all we have. It might be something as simple as seeing a butterfly or a sunset or holding someones hand. Maybe a day where you wrote a poem you wish to share I hope we can continue to inspire each other and I look forward in sending this picture out into the big wide world. (Stay tuned).
What are you grateful for today, I am grateful that you stopped by and spent a moment here with me.
