To Follow or Not to Follow

So I have been going back and forth about trying to make this a blog that people could follow. You know, like a blog that has 100 followers and they are mostly people you don't know. HAHA My friends recently did it with her blog and she did all the research on how to grow your blog. On Fridays, which is today, there are a couple of blogs who let you link up your blog for people to come check out and follow you. I thought I would give it a try. Also, I am coming up on my 100th post soon so I thought maybe on my 100th post i would do a give away. I thought about making a purse but I have been really busy. We are getting ready to go visit family in Utah on May 1st so I am trying to get stuff done before then. I REALLY wanted to make myself a new purse to bring with me so we'll see how that goes. Then I started thinking of other things I could give away instead and I thought of doing a canvas print. What do you think? I figured since it was Spring and there are flowers EVERYWHERE here in Texas, I figured that would be a good one.







I will make the print as big as my printer will allow. Just so you can see what that looks like, here is a picture of the latest one I did for my friend back in Cali of their son



We found out my printer will not print borderless so it ends up being about 23 and a half inches instead of a full 24 inches. Either way it's still HUGE! I think I am actually gonna print me out one of these blue bonnet pictures to hang in my home too! Who can resist in this wonderful spring weather where they are every where here any where I go.

I have 20 more post to go and I will be giving one away. If you are interested become a follower or keep checking back here to see when to enter. It will HAVE to be before May 1st so just a couple of weeks away. I guess that means I need to be posting a lot too. I have my work cut out for me!

Yeah, the canvas you did of Connor is so cute, and I am so going to have to have you make one of Noah. How much does it cost you to do one that size so I can have you make me one to bring down (if you have time)? I can't wait for you guys to get here. I knew you were coming in May... but I didn't know it was right at the beginning. Woot! I know you are flying for your end of June trip... but are you flying or driving for May?? You never answered my question about if you owned a copy of Eclipse yet? Sorry lots of info in one comment... but it all came to me at once. LOL

I agree with Kris. That pic of Connor is so cute. I'm gonna make you print me something too I just don't know what yet. The blue bonnets pictures would look great on the wall in a 3 canvas set.
