8 years ago today I started Ink Stains! I wanted it to be a place to share a variety of projects, techniques and cards with friends. A place where you can learn without having to shell out loads of $$$$$ just to see how someone did that. I wanted it to be a place that people would look forward to visiting to see what I was up to next.
3,113 posts later I hope that I've done what I set out to do but only you can tell me if I have succeeded or not.
There are days I wonder if anyone is listening, days I can't wait to share what I've made or a fun new way to use a product and even days I come home and wonder if anyone would miss me if I never posted again but every once in a while someone will send me an e-mail or post a comment that boosts my spirits and pushes me onward. It's nice to know that I make a difference in your artistic life and I hope that I can continue to shine a little light on your days for many long years to come.
For now though I'd like to celebrate the first 8 years with a fun giveaway for you!
You don't have to jump through hoops to be entered to win...simply post a comment. It can be just your name (with a way to contact you), you can tell me about a favorite project/technique you've seen here, you can tell me how long you've been visiting or maybe something you'd like to see. Whatever it is, just post to be entered to win. I know there are people out there because the blog is up to a little over 3,250,00 views and a few thousand visits per day ... so let's here from you! You deserve a shot at winning :)
