Happy Anniversary

To me! Or...well...To my blog! One year ago today I created this blog and started posting. Truthfully, at the time, I was a little concerned because I didn't know much about blogging and I wasn't sure if I could stick with it.

Now here I am safely through the first year. To celebrate I created a yummy little watercolor sketch. And the best part - no calories! I made the sketch using a few different photos as references. I just couldn't justify bringing more sweets into the house until all of the Christmas cookies are gone and a lot more miles are logged on the treadmill.

To wrap up this party I'd like to thank all of you for reading my blog and supporting me through its first year. Stick around and we can have another celebration the same time next year!

i wanted to wish you another 'Happy Blog Birthday', Stacy! your cupcake looks yummy.:) Robin Neudorfer and i were looking at cupcakes painted in oils on a blog a few days ago. they were selling like hotcakes. or should i say cupcakes? maybe you should paint a few more!

Stacy said...

Mark, I'll get right to work on that Snickers bar.

Thanks Jennifer! If all sweets were free of calories and full of nutrients I wouldn't eat anything else!

Thanks Jeanette!

Thanks Billie! If I paint more cupcakes, I will definitely need to paint them from life. Fortunately I know a local bakery that makes the cutest cupcakes. Hmmm...maybe I better stick to painting fruit or non-edible still lifes.
