99....GIVEAWAY TIME!

That’s right folk’s 99 posts here at Chasing Purple Dreams and as 9 is my number I have chosen to celebrate now rather than at the traditional 100 post mark.

I want to celebrate the joy that you have brought into my life by visiting this little blog. Some of you have read all 99 posts – thankyou and well done! Some of you may be popping in for the very first time – welcome, I hope you decide to stick around. All of you make my heart sing when you leave me a comment or drop by.

When I started this bogging adventure I could never have guessed how much I would enjoy it or get out of it. I have made friendships that I value so much and learnt things I never imagined. It really is quite a bizarre concept that strangers from all around the globe would gather here to create a community and support little old me, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou.

I wish I could give each of you a present for putting up with my awkward writing and saying sweet things about my paintings (even the not so crash hot ones!). But for now I am just going to spoil one of you, with a range of things that have been part of the Chasing Purple Dreams history. So some lucky dream chaser will receive a package from me that will include…….

A pair of water colours…
A “Two Hearts” pendant…
A crochet dish cloth (not this one I have already used it, I shall make one just for you!)…

And some other random goodies that take my fancy…

I don’t want to make you jump through hoops for this one, so just leave me a comment and your name is in the draw.
If however you are feeling really keen to win you can click the “like” button over at facebook and join the dream chasers here by clicking the follow button and I shall give you another couple of chances!!

For those of you who already do follow along, thankyou, you already have a couple of extra entries with your names on them!

I wonder if this will prompt a few lurkers out of the background, you know who you are….. now is the time to make your voice heard!

  9. Yes, I admit it, I am a lurker. This is the first comment I have ever left, I was lured out of the shadows by the opportunity to win some of your work, as I constantly wish I was all cashed up every time I see your paintings and jewellery. Yours is my favourite blog and I have read back a long way, clinking my little heart out on all your links. I keep thinking I might pass you in the street as I think we are local....keep up the good work, you are quite inspirational in the accessibility of your art.

  11. Oo oo oooo loving these goodies :).... congratulations on the 99 posts.. I just passed 100 posts too - I didn't realise it was a standard milestone, I just thought it was an appropriately good time to go for the giveaway.. I'm so glad I did as I was a bit lacking in the self promotion department so it worked wonders for my readership ;)

    I think I'm already a follower - you're on my RSS feeder and in my blogroll.

  25. Congrats on the 99. It took me awhile to gather up the nerve to start a blog, yet the fear stopped me alone - the writing turned out to be easy, and the friendly bloggers I have met (some from faraway places like OZ...) are great, creative and fun to visit - your site is artistic and fun!

  27. Happy 99 and congratulations!! I had no idea when I started blogging -- almost reluctantly, what an incredible difference it would make in my life and the marvelous, wonderful, interesting people it has brought into my life! I love your blog and happy to see you taking part in some of the same memes that I do! Have a wonderful week ahead!

  28. Count me in. Have been a follower since I started blogging earlier this year. Lovely giveaway by the way.

  29. Wow! This is very generous of you Kylie! I'd love to throw my name into the draw. I'm glad that I don't need to do the Facebook thing because I'm not on FB! And my blog 'followers gadget' thingie is stuffed up (something weird happened to it when blogspot first introduced it) so I can't follow blogs that way because I'm unable to access the list! I'm hopeless I know. Not very techie minded...

    Thanks a bunch for having this wonderful giveway!
