[Sketching Spring Necklace :: sterling silver]
You’ve done it again. Your support has helped us over the hump of winter, fed us, clothed us, paid our mortgage, put fuel in our trucks, fed our dogs their kibbles, the cat his tuna and our chickens their grub. The best way I know how to say thanks is to do a giveaway and to say, thank you, until you know I really, deeply, truly mean it.
For all you do.
Thank you for reading this blog, for claiming my work (big pieces or small), for the encouraging notes you send me by mail, email, Etsy convo (sorry it takes me so long to respond, I really am the worlds worst emailer). Thanks for telling me to write a book or to publish a collection of prose and poetry. Gosh. Thanks for that. This is one of my main goals this summer, hold me to it. Most of all, thanks for being just who you are because there are times when I think of you, or I read your comments on a blog post, and I really feel warm inside and understood and received and like my views and my lifestyle and the very who of me is respected and cherished — whether you live your life similarly or not — and that’s the sort of thing that makes me want to continue in this work and continue sharing my life with you in all the ways that I can. You are courageously openhearted and open minded. I’m proud of you for that. You are part of a beloved community here and having you in my world, in our world, is a blessing. All day long. Every day.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR GIVEAWAY ENTRY:
If you would like to enter your name in the drawing for this Sketching Spring Necklace, please simply leave a comment on this blog post. You can say anything you would like to say. I would love to know the title of the best book you have read recently or the name of the album you are playing on repeat lately. If you are shy, just say “Hi!” There aren’t any rules.
I’ll randomly draw a winning name as soon as I am settled in the Methow Valley, at our summering grounds. As always, my giveaway packages are little care packages so be prepared for the arrival of a bevy of love in your mailbox if you are the winner. PLEASE NOTE: If your comment does not appear in the comment section immediately it’s because it’s sitting in my behind-the-scenes comment moderation area and I’ll publish it as soon as I have an internet connection up and running once more.
Until then, with abiding affection,
The Noisy Plume
