Blogiversary Give~Away

I have been writing here for a year!
I've loved the opportunity I've been given to express myself,
to share photos, drawings, musings, crochet, my attempts at knitting...
Most of all,
I've enjoyed the connections I've made with other people.
There is so much inspiration here in Blogland!

Therefore,
to celebrate,
I'm having a give~away which includes:

  • a crochet washcloth with some hand~made rose geranium and pink clay soap,

  • an affirmation pebble,

  • and a small print of one of my paintings.

The washcloth is made out of Peaches'n Creme kitchen cotton using the Victorian Lace pattern from 200 Crochet Blocks:




the affirmation pebble will look something like these:



(I'll pencil on an affirmation of the winner's choice, if they like),


the print is of a pastel and watercolour painting of chrysanthemums:

Edited Christmas 2009: Please do not copy the image below. I did not give Bing permission to use this painting in their Christmas card images and I don't give you permission either! If you want to use any of my images you'll need to email me and get my OK first of all. I can be contacted at inkberryblue (at) gmail (dot) com. Thank you for your understanding.



...and in answer to someone's question,
I haven't used any scrapbooking techniques,
the painting's all my own work.

All you have to do is leave a comment telling me how you found Inkberryblue. I'll close the contest on Saturday, 10th May (which gives people a fortnight) and announce the winner on the following day.


Don't be shy!

I am trying to relax from getting very angry over a piece of news, and I'm just swirling down the infundibulum of blogrolls. I was at A Bowl of Hours and the title "Inkberryblue" was appealing because I'd been musing over a photographer's turning the blue feet of a booby so blue that it turned the guano on the rock upon which it stood blue too!

Thus, I found you.

I honestly don't remember how I found you. I guess it's not important how I got here....just that I have arrived and visit for a spell each time you have something to say.
Have a sparklin' day!

Laurah said...

I found your blog through a comment link on my blog.
Happy blog-versary!

Indigo Blue said...

I think I found you on someone elses blogroll and because blue featured in the title I popped over. Been popping back ever since.

Happy Blogiversary! What lovely prizes... I found you through Wiknit.

Turtle said...

i stumbled in some time ago and have lurked here and there. The name inkberryblue lured my attention, love it! I believe i stumbled through someones blog but do not remember who it was.

Your stones are very cool. Do you transfer the flowers or watercolor them yourself?

Turtle said...

Carola said...

Oh, I missed the part about telling you how I found my way here. To be honest, I don't remember. As you know I've pretty much been a regular visitor here since the beginning - I think ... and maybe it was you who commented on my blog so I got here because of that. Or I may have found you on another of my favorite blogs, so that's how I got here ...

Nan said...

I found you by way of Andrea at Indigo Blue.

I liked the 'small is beautiful' link you had posted and have been coming back for a visit ever since.

Love the painting, it's beautiful.
Congratulations on your blogiversary!

I found your Inkberry Blue blog in a link from Granny Along which I have marked as a favourite but haven't been into for a while even though I have just finished my first granny afghan!!
I just love the crocheted cloth with the flowers - a great photo.

I found you by way of ravelry, and I absolutely ADORE your marigold painting. My living room (my creative space) is filled with oranges and greens and it would showcase your painting beautifully! You are extremely talented!

I, too, have been blogging for a year,and I am always curious about how people stumbled upon my blog. What a great idea to celebrate your anniversary.
