WOW! A Blog Birthday AND 100th Post!

Hard to believe that it is my Blog's 1st birthday.

BUT WAIT! The Red Door Studio Blog is not only celebrating a birthday, BUT also... it's the 100th post.

Now, I could not have planned the two events to coincide if I tried... but by some miracle they are indeed happening at the exact same time!

SO, to celebrate in grand fashion I am having a blog giveaway. Toss your name into the hat by leaving a comment. You will have one week. Then on Saturday, July 28th, I will have my darling husband choose three numbers.

I will be giving away the artwork shown below, which is a small bird painted on fabric, and two sets of songbird stencils.

THANK YOU ALL SO VERY VERY MUCH for stopping by to visit! I am constantly filled with gratitude and joy by the friendships and connections I have made through this experience.

Congratulations on the anniversary, Tracie. It takes time and dedication to share one's thoughts and creative spirit in a blog (more than many people who don't blog realize).

I enjoyed your article in Cloth Paper Scissors, and regularly visit your blog as well. Thanks.
