What a Difference a Year Makes!

Hello and thank you to all of my fellow art teachers, parents, friends and blog followers. It has been just over a year since I have started this blog of art adventures, and I have just hit the 100 followers mark! It thrills me to be part of this incredible community of creative people who value the arts. So, in classic blogger style, I would like to throw a little giveaway at you!

For five winners chosen at random, I will mail one of these new rubber stamps from Museum Stamps featuring the works of Wood, van Gogh, da Vinci, and Munch. I have used stamps like these in student's sketchbooks as a reward. I've also made book marks and thank you cards for art teachers that have allowed me to substitute for them. We have had a mini masterpiece gallery on the walls of my studio as well. The children would color the stamped images as a free choice activity, but the rule was one for them to take home, and one for the studio. I think it is something about the size and fame of the images that really make the kids love them.

Here are the rules:
You must be a follower of this blog—easily fixed if you would like to enter. Just join us! One entry each. Entering more than once will not increase your chances. Please enter by commenting to this post, and leaving an email address or way to contact you. You must enter by May 31st. Winners will be chosen on or about June 1st and mailed ASAP. Winners and stamps awarded by random drawing.

Good Luck!
And thanks for following, being inspired, and inspiring me.

Congratulations! I was going to do a giveaway at 200 but the poster I was working on just didn't turn out right. I have something in the works that will be ready this summer!

Me, me, me, pick me PLEEEEASSSE! Sorry, I have a 16 month old, so I am hearing quite a bit of whining these days. Alas, I would really love one of these little stamps! I wanted to do a giveaway at the 150 mark, but I may save it for 175 or 200. I haven't thought of anything cool enough to give away yet. My email is
