100th Post Giveaway!

I made it to my 100th post in less than a year. In honor of the occasion, I changed the subtitle of my blog. After almost a year, I've finally accepted the title of "Artist" instead of Wanna Be. My art life does seem like my alter ego though, so I added the "secret" part to the title. In real life I still feel just like "Mommmm!" but I'm sure as the kids grow I will be able to embrace life as me more.
I love sharing my work, so I'm doing another giveaway. Please let me know your favorite work from my etsy store, or this blog and I will make something special for the winner. Make sure I have your email address so I can let you know you are the winner.

Congrats on you 100th post Nikki I have been reading your blog for a while now lurking in the background admiring you work very much.
If I had to choose a favourite and it is so hard-I would choose"Spring Showers" it is so beautiful.
Keep up the good work and I would love to own a piece of your art so if you don't mind could you include me in your draw.

Please include me. You know what my favorite is...but just in case you forgot : ) It's Dandelion Breeze : ) I'm still visiting it every day or two. I really like Spring Showers too but it's still coming in 2nd place. : ) I still can't believe you only just started last Jan. Amazing talent. Pamela

My favorite is 'love in Red '

Congratulations Nikki!
I like everything, but your "sailing on dreams" is among my favourites.

Brenda said...

I'm like Francoise, I like them all. However, I have a special soft spot for the green series especially first bloom as it reminds me of flying over fields in Oregon and Washington. Keep on blogging and creating beautiful things.

Woo hoo! 100 posts! I love all your work and it's very hard to pick one favorite. But if you were twisting my arm really hard, I'd say the purple framed 'love'.

Judy Rys said...

I'm glad you dropped the Wanna Be Artist. Before you know it, those munchkins will be fully grown and you'll wonder how it happened so fast. One of my favorite pieces is the Organic Bubbles.

Easy choice. The book for Madeline. I have been enjoying your blog for a bit now and congrats on 100! I hope to be able to enjoy many more. I am a nurse that works with bereaved families who have lost infants and children. It takes much heart to honor the lives of children that have left and speak of the gift they GIVE the world. I am grateful to you for that piece. So there it is:the book is the BEST!

Cheryl said...

100 already! I love your blog and seeing your works inspires me.

I have to say my favorite is a recent work, Vase of Cheer. It's so happy, and in colors I adore!

Congrats on 100 and here's to 100 more!

Congratulations on 100 posts! That's a lot of great artwork. I'd have to say that my favorite piece is "Patience", though I'll admit I scrolled up and down for about 15 minutes before choosing -- it was tough to decide.

Tomme said...

My favorite has to be the skirts on those darling kids! ;-) For my favorite quilty thing, I'm in agreement with others that "Dandelion Breeze" is wonderful. (Of course, I really like the piece I already have the best!)

I can't possibly pick a favourite Nikki, that's way too hard, but I did really like that green series you did recently, especially the one with the coloured squares which I think I commented on at the time. Which is strange as I'm not usually drawn to green - I don't dislike it or anything, it's just not where my eye goes first, you know?

By the way, did you know we have nearly the same name, only mine's spelled Muuuuuuum!

Wil Opio Oguta said...

Congratulations Nikki! I just reached that milestone too:-) All your pieces are lovely, but my favourite is Grow.

Peggy said...

Nikki,
Congratulations on your milestone. I absolutely love those 3 yellow green fabrics and your new orange & pink exploration, ok, and vase of cheer.
