This is my 150th post!! Wow! I can’t believe it! And to think, I even have a few followers! (Thank You guys, you know who you are).

I thought it would be fun to host a doodle art giveaway. You won’t win a million dollars or a cute art journal kit, sorry! But what I can do is take my doodle alphabet and make a 4x6 print of something similar to the “name” above. The winner can choose any word they want. Your Name, your word for the year, a date, a number…. I’ve found that it’s best to limit the number of characters in your “word” to under 8. That way you can see more of the doodles in the print. I’ve been making these name photos for friends at work since July. It’s been fun!!

All you have to do is answer the following question in a word or two.

What is the first word that comes into your mind when you think of ART?

To be included in the random drawing you have to comment on this post by midnight Sunday 2/28. I’ll randomly pick a name and announce it on my blog Monday 3/1. So, please stop back on the 1st so I can get your address and your word. I will need to snail mail you the print.

See some examples below:

Congratulations on your 150th post!! Isn't blogging fantastic?

My words for art would be play and colors. And your doodle alphabet certainly lives up to those two words.

My word at the moment when I hear the word 'art' is - 'healing'
Love your name prints - they are awesome.
I am Roo2007 on flickr since my blog isn't up to date anymore :-)
Glad I found your blog it's in my favourites now

Hi! My name is Dmitryi. I live and work in Moscow. I saw your work and I am delighted! I liked how you write the names. I would imagine a get. Tell me you can make a logo with my name? Course is ideal if you do me for free, but if you want to pay, you may pay. Write me at my e-mail HRIlya@gmail.com
Yes, it is desirable to do in Russian.
In any case, Thank you!
My full name in Russian Дмитрий is my full name in English Dmitryi

For me, Art means Happiness! A word designed with your doodles would be such a lovely gift.

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
