It has been a year and two months since I started this blog one hot, hot summer day last year. This summer has been just as hot, and as I sit cooped up in my air-conditioned bubble, avoiding the sun at all costs like a mole in a hole, I am amazed that it has been this long.
I wasn't sure then how long this will last, but this here is my 100th post. A milestone!
To mark this occasion, here is a modest little give-away. Having been bitten by the bookmark bug (see my previous post), I have been making some more bookmarks, painting the designs on paper. Since they are a little flimsy, I thought I would get them printed on better paper, and laminated as well.
I know most of you are avid readers. So if you would like to have this set of three bookmarks, leave me a comment. I will pick three names at random about 10 days from now, and mail these out to those three of you.
Before I show you my bookmarks, here are some from my collection, along with some of my favourite books.
Can you read that? This and the next bookmark are Ilan Shamir's words. Check out more about him here. This one says:
Advice from a Bat
Trust in your Senses
Spend Time just Hanging around with Friends
Get a Grip
Enjoy the Nightlife
Sometimes you've just gotta Wing it
This one says:
Advice from a Bear
Climb beyond your Limitations
When life gets hairy, Grin and Bear it
Live with the Seasons
Take a Good, Long Nap
Look after your Honey!
This third one was a present from a friend who visited South Africa and wanted to get me something small. I thought it was a very thoughtful gift. Such a simple idea, no?
Now, here are my three bookmarks. Remember - if you leave a comment, you are at risk of being picked to get these in the mail. :)
This past year of blogging has been fun. Through this medium I have found some of your incredibly creative blogs that I find so inspiring. Keep creating, and keep posting!
