Hello! My name is Petrina and I want to welcome you to my blog. Today is the "Grow Your Blog" Party, hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full.
I have been blogging since 2008 about a mish-mash of things, but mainly it's about photography, art and design. I love all things to do with creativity, even if it's just creative problem solving. I received my first camera at the age of 14 (a Canon Snappy, for those that remember film cameras), and I haven't been without a camera since. I have loads of photos to share in the future as well as arts and crafts. I just haven't had the time between the holidays and planning my wedding which, by the way, is TODAY!
Yes, that's right, depending on what time you are reading this around the world, I am either getting ready for my wedding, reciting my vows, celebrating with my family and a few close friends, or zonked out in the aftermath. But, I couldn't pass up this opportunity to find new followers as well as find new blogs to follow. I get so inspired by seeing all the creativity of my fellow bloggers, and I can't wait to come visit all of you. So, even though I will be otherwise occupied today, I will visit as many of your blogs as I can when all wedding craziness is over and things get back to normal.
In the meantime, please look around and stay for a spell.
And! In the spirit of the Grow Your Blog Party, let's have a little giveaway! ****** Giveaway Closed! Scroll to bottom for winner!********
I recently created the Thank You cards you see pictured below, and have a handful left that I'd like to pass on to you.
These cards were hand drawn by me and colored in Photoshop. They are printed with archival inks on textured card stock in a set of five cards with five envelopes. This giveaway will be open until February 1st, so please leave a comment here on this post (tell me about you or your blog), and come back to this same post on February 2nd when I will announce the winner in an update. Please make sure you leave an email or some way for me to contact you. This giveaway is open to anyone. I will mail these to anywhere in the world. You do not have to have a blog to enter. You do not have to be a participant of the "Grow Your Blog" party.
