My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


Motivation Monday- Giveaway

Did you have a good weekend? We went on a nice relaxing date this weekend.... we ate macaroons.. went window shopping.. thumbed through old books.. it was pure magic  :)
One of my many goals from 2010, that has spilled over to 2011 and beyond, is to meet new friends in blogland.  I just wanted to say that I am so greatful to have over 100 followers and I told my husband that when I reached over 100 followers I would do my first ever give away! Woohoo!
I am going to paint you a painting! 6X6 oil painting with a gamar varnish.
In order to be eligible for the give away. Follow these easy steps.  :)
1. Follow my blog.  (if not do so)
2.  Touch your toes.
3.  Five Jumping Jacks
4.  One cart wheel.
5.  Walk like an Egyptian- like the song.
6.  Legally change your name to Harold, if your name is Harold then you will need to legally change your name to Bertha.

Kidding! Here is how to enter.

1.  Follow my blog if not do so- just click the follow button.
2.  Leave a comment and tell me something about yourself, or what inspires you, or what you are doing today.. or something that interesting about you...  or anything that you want me to know about you.
The winner will be picked on Friday.  :)

I love meeting people in blogland too! It's really made me open up and be more aware of how I word things (I actually curse a lot). Haha.

Good job on 100! I'm up to 10 (I think?) and working to get more. Lately...I've been struggling with my focus and inspiration...need some sun and warmth soon!

Michelle said...

I have to say "thank you" to you for reaching out to me so that I can now enjoy your wonderful blog. Your posts are a treat!

I spent some of my weekend painting which I haven't done in a while and it felt wonderful! The rest of my weekend was spent being lazy...which was also wonderful.

This is SUCH an amazing giveaway! Today I'm being sick on the couch of course but what I'd love to be doing is anything out of the house! And I love meeting people in blogland and am grateful for every last bit of inspiration I've had from it. Here's to a great year of blogging for us all!

You're so awesome. How fun! Well, I moved to New York in October, but I still miss Seattle everyday. I love both cities so much.

Congrats by the way on 100 followers, woot woot! Interesting thing about me hrrrmmm... I HATE talking on the phone and avoid it as much as possible. Most of my friends and family are all too aware of my aversion to the phone and have resorted to calling my husbands phone if they need to talk with me... I also am slightly obsessed with swedish fish :)

I have size fifteen feet. I walk into a shoe store and head for the back. There's usually two or three pairs, and they're usually dusty.

stephanie said...

Congrats on 100 followers! I'm a follower now as well. :)

Something about me...I really like my job, but secretly wish I didn't work outside of the home.

kat said...

Yay! Congrats on 100 followers. I thought you you should know that I find your blog inspiring! Keep up the amazing work!

Unknown said...

100 followers! I can't even imagine! since i started following your blog, I have gotten closer to getting my creativity back!
on my agenda today is to work my animal hospital job from 7am-6pm, eat a quick dinner, and be in bed by 7:30 pm so that I can try to get my 8 hours of sleep before getting up at 3:30 tomorrow morning for work at my trader joe's (grocery store) job. Yes, I NEED at least 7 hours of sleep, but prefer 8...

What a fantastic giveaway - your paintings are divine! :)

I'm a dedicated follower of your blog ... and as for telling you something ... how about telling you something that's been inspiring me? Right now it would have to be the way the Queensland community has come together to help eachother with the recent floods ... it's been heart-warming to see and be a part of.

I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed! :D

I would love to have one of your lovely artworks :) I am a recent follower of your blog, and love your artistic outlook on life. The highlights of my day were : meeting a girl from a reality tv show that I watched last week that really inspired me (having her success story be so close to mine and having her come through me till was amazing), holding a childs hand, and getting a free book of poetry from an amazing wordsmith :) Hope you had a wonderful day too! <3

I'm not sure if I made the deadline, but that's okay. Something about me? Well, today I'm helping my husband in his office and while I sound all business and professional on the phone, I'm painting Fearless Faces on the floor!!
