....Blog Post #500

1 Year Blogging Anniversary


a Winner

WHEW ~ how's that for a loaded posting :)

Yep, Ink Stains is officially 1 year old today! Who'd a thunk it ~ I can't believe how much life has changed in only one year... of course I'm a year older, I've posted 500 tid-bits on the blog but there is so much more. I originally started the blog for a few reasons...some very persistent friends kept telling me I should :) Thanks guys!!! But I had also just come off of a very exhaustive month long very restrictive interview/application/whatever you want to call it for an on-line forum position. I was disappointed but almost relived when I found out I didn't get the job because the company was so specific in what they didn't want I believe I would have felt hampered in my creativity. Therefore Ink Stains was born :) YEAH!!!

Just goes to show you that things do happen for a reason even though we don't know it at the time.

There have been lots of other changes over the year that I won't bore you with but I'm very excited about my artistic life...very positive things all around. Now if we could only improve the economy wouldn't life be grand....but alas, I'm not a magician. LOL!!!

Enough of the mush stuff....

The winner of Blog Bash Give-A-Way #7

the wildest thing i made was altering a barbie doll. i cut her hair so short that she aint barbie anymore. i designed her skirt with paper and made her hat with a chipboard swirl. an art doll indeed but surely, the little girls would not want to see her. lol.i also did a spool doll wherein her head is made of metal spool and yarns as her hair... they are on my blogs.thanks
