First off, I want to apologize to anyone who, after reading the title of this post, has that godawful Def Leppard song stuck in their head.
Aaaaanyway, I have come to several realizations this week, not the least of which being that Qdoba’s food is totally disgusting. Blech.
In addition, I have come to the following conclusions about this blog: a) hardly anyone is reading this blog, b) the reason that hardly anyone reads this blog is that I don’t give them much of a reason to, and 3) I should probably do something about that.
The 365 project has kept me committed to posting regularly, but it’s not anything that is really going to draw a crowd or keep one entertained enough to keep it from turning into a restless, angry mob.
Enter the giveaway.
While I do plan to do a lot more writing here, I am also not above bribing people to at least pretend to read/care about my blog. I’m probably also not above groveling, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
The photo that I took of my desk got me thinking about how much stuff is taking up valuable space in my teeny tiny ‘studio’. A lot of the clutter consists of pieces that don’t quite meet my (ultra ridiculous) high standards. Some of them are ‘practice pieces’ that look pretty decent but have a flaw here or there that would keep me from actually selling them. But I need to get rid of them somehow and since they aren’t throwaways, they must be giveaways.
So, I’m going to give them away. Every now and then, when the mood strikes me, I will post something here or maybe in Facebookland that I am looking to give away. I’m not going to make anyone jump through any hoops or anything. You’ll just need to leave a comment or something. See? So easy.
So, today I have this little pendant that I made. It’s cute, but far from perfect (in my estimation). It is watercolor on hardened clay with a polymer glaze and it’s about 1″ in diameter. If you would like it, leave a comment on this post. I’m going to leave comments open until…oh, Saturday night at 8pm, I guess. Then I’ll go to random.org and let them pick a number. The person whose comment number matches the winning number will get a nice little surprise in the mail (okay, it won’t be a surprise, it will be this pendant, but you know what I mean). Sound good? Okay, comment away…brownie points to anyone who has something interesing/witty to say.
