I know you have all been sitting by your computers dying to know where I’ve been and what I have been up to. I’ve been here, and there, not sure if I’m coming or going. I probably have a dozen half finished posts and I can’t seem to finish a single one. It’s always a photo I’m missing, or a paragraph that makes no sense. Sometimes I just lose my nerve and I am afraid to post.. Afraid? That’s silly. Maybe my post is stupid, and nobody cares… but no one has ever really been mean to me on WordPress, or anywhere online for that matter. In fact most everyone has been super nice! And I’m pretty sure I’m not going to cause much controversy or ruffle anyone’s feathers with my silly little blog about dragonfly’s, kitty cats, daisies, flea markets, cupcakes, holding hands, ice cream, willow trees, sunrises, dancing, cups of tea, love birds, rainbows, best friends. Actually… i haven’t written about at least half of those items yet, so I better get to work.
Speaking of getting to work… November came and went and I still haven’t posted the giveaway for the Sky Blue 2014 Yoga Gypsy calendar. I’ve spent way too much time trying to make sense of the Facebook rules, trying to figure out if i need to use a third party app, worrying that only one person will enter… what i need to be doing is making some art. Writing, and making art. But unfortunately these are all necessary evils, part of sharing your art with the world. I’m just going to do the best I can and get done what needs to be done, and hope I don’t get kicked off Facebook.
Tomorrow, Monday December 9, I will be posting a Facebook giveaway for the Yoga Gypsy calendar. Does Yoga Gypsy have healing powers? I’m pretty sure she does. The longer you look at her, the more at peace you feel. How did the calendar come about? One day, I thought it would be fun to play with the original pencil drawing in my photo edit software, and I couldn’t stop looking at her in every shade of blue, and orange, and pink, and on an on… each color making me feel a bit different. I thought others might enjoy her zen-like presence in many colors as well, and a calendar can offer that. Besides… once the year is over, you are left with 12 adorable prints, with which you can make an Andy Warhol-ish collage, give to friends, or keep to enjoy her peaceful glow in a rainbow of colors every year. Read more about Yoga Gypsy’s story from this earlier post.
I hope you will visit (and Like if I’m lucky!) the Sky Blue With Daisies Facebook page, and tomorrow, I hope you will be on the lookout for the giveaway post.
The winner will be announced later this week!
