Right before last Christmas I started this blog, all thanks to the wonderful other bloggers that I love, and here I am about six months later with 101 followers! A special thanks to everyone who continues to read what I have to share, and to everyone else who inspires me to contribute with my own blog.
I also wanted to thank follower number 100 and 101. Blogger is having a bit of a goof right now so I can't make a personal shout out because I can't see who you are, but it is much appreciated!
In honor of reaching 100 followers, I'd like to thank you by hosting my first giveaway! I have two books to offer to two wonderful readers. The first is "A color of his own," by Leo Lionni.
I actually own two copies of this book and love it. (I saw one on sale for 10 cents and couldn't not buy it. Silly me.) I've done a lesson with Kindergarteners, but this book is easy to inspire some new and fresh art projects. I'm sure I will use it to help think of other lessons, too, I figured... might as well share the wealth!
My second book is "Artist in Overalls, The Life of Grant Wood."
Again, I have two copies, both given to me as a present! They both have inscriptions on the inside, so the copy you receive will have a mini personal message to me, but just insert your name where it says "Hannah," and pretend that's how I signed it : ).
All you have to do is leave a comment and which book you'd prefer and I will randomly choose a winner. The contest will be open for a week starting today and ending next Thursday, June 16 at 11:59 pm. Good luck and thank you all again so much - Hopefully this will be a nice little start to your much anticipated summer vacation!
