Today is number 1501 post. Actually that makes it 1500 even as there is one that is a draft from long ago that I will not delete because it was used as a "guest blogger" post elsewhere and I want to preserve that bit of history. You can see that post here.
But my dashboard shows this:
So how about a little giveaway? I will say that the prize will be a surprise.  It will most likely be some type of art I have made such as a print (or notecards) of my art pieces. It may be a something I draw/paint just for you. Or if you are a quilter, I could be a piece that I have made and embellished that you can use in a quilt project - or if you are inclined, frame and hang. Perhaps like the piece shown at the top of this post or the one below this statement.

So, if you want a chance, leave a comment and I will choose a random winner.  Let me know if you would prefer a print/printed notecards or a fabric piece. (Disclaimer - no promises, you get what you get! :) )
Your comment gets you one chance to win.  If you comment twice, the second one will be ignored in my count. All comments must be made here on the blog - no email or facebook entries will be counted. That just makes it easier on me.
This will end on Wednesday night at, November 23, 2016 at 10 pm CST and the drawing will be sometime after or during the USA Thanksgiving weekend. If you are a no-reply blogger and I can't contact you, I will choose another winner.
Good luck!

Did you know that you can gift a Craftsy class to a friend or to anyone for that matter?

And if you need fabric I suggest Connecting Threads. I love their solids and Quilter's Candy.
Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. Of course if you are a "No Reply Blogger"- I can not reply. Links in posts may be affiliate links for which I am compensated if you click through and purchase.

Well Gene, you know I will comment, surprise me! Congratulations! Now I need to look at my own dashboard for a count. I've never done that!

Congratulations Gene. Both of the pieces you have shown are beautiful. Although I am a quilter, I love art of all kinds so anything would please me. Thank you so much for the chance.

Hi Gene. I love your blog and it is always interesting to see what you are working on. I love your art prints. By the way, a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Congratulations, Gene!! Thanks for the chance to win your give-away - I love your art prints, too - but I'll take anything you're willing to part with - ;))

I love your idea of giving away something you've created yourself! Congratulations on a long standing blog. When I read your post count I thought, "Whoa, you must post often!". I was thinking my blog was much older than yours so you must have been posting like crazy, but turns out you've been around a while too.

I know this is my second comment - and that it doesn't count - but I like our chances - ;))
