Grow your Blog

Hello, "Grow your Blog" visitors!

Welcome to my art blog. My name is Debbie and I am a self-taught artist of various mediums.  I especially like to create in paper-arts; handmade greeting cards, mixed media collages, digital art using Photo shop, and assemblages to name a few. I also paint landscapes and make jewelry.

I started blogging in 2009 as a logical next step to expose myself and my artistic endeavors to the world.  During this time, I have been exploring how to stretch my artistic wings (and my muse) by sharing my art and participating in various online events such as this one.  I have made some art friends in the blogosphere world and I am pleased to be able to participate in Vicki's event in hopes of making new ones!

With that said, and in honor of this event, I am offering a give-a-way. To be eligible, please leave a comment about this post, be sure to leave your name and email address in the event you win, I can have a way to notify your to get your address. (you do not have to be participating in this event to win, just fulfill the requirement.) Winner will be determined by Random.org generator and results will be posted on or about February 1st on the blog.

Thank you for visiting me and for those visitors not associated to the "Grow your Blog" event, click on the link to take you to our hostess, Vicki vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com for more great links to other great blogs. Good luck to you in my drawing!   Debbie
