I don't really understand
But...I am really curious
as to how many of you
really read my blog.
I have a handful that
are so sweet and leave 
a message and I have to say...
that is the grease that keeps the 
wheels turning on blogs.
So just for my ego
I would like to know.
I would like to give away
a picture.

Sweet and simple,
from me to you.
If you leave a comment
I will pick at random
a winner.  
If you have a blog,
I will come by for 
a visit.  
I will pick a winner
next wednesday
June 23rd.
Good luck.

What a sweet giveaway! I think out in blogland there are many of us that pop in daily. We take a look, read a little, enjoy a lot and then hop on over to another blog with out leaving a word. I for one will try and improve on my commenting. Thanks for that little reminder. I do love receiving comments on my blog so why wouldn't you!!! Loved you at Farm Chick also!

Your sweet little girl picture is cute and I did read your blog but I always think I should just leave pictures because that is all anyone wants to do is look at the pics! ha ha! Off to lay on the beach (something I never get to say in OK!). ~Shelley O>

krys kirkpatrick said...

Why Thank-you so much for your comments. You all made my day. I was thinking, being a grandma now makes me want to try a little harder to be a little kinder and put more thought into the words I say and print. I appreciate your kindness...each and everyone of you.

Hi Krys!

Thanks for stopping by my little blog today! Can you even STAND how cute that baby kangaroo is?? Ackk!
I'm gushing like it's mine! LOL

So,,as I was logging on to your blog? I had this crazy idea! You know all those "Tacky" puffy embroidered sweatshirts with faux white collars that were so popular for Grandmas in the 80's and early 90's???

I was thinking YOU could put the CUTE back in Grandma! You look way too young by the way! Come up with a cute line of clothing featuring YOUR fun new images and voila! Grandma's will wear it proudly and it'll be FUN to wear.....well, I get these hairbrained ideas sometime..LOL. Just a thought!

I had so much fun visiting with you at Farm Chicks as well...your little "Chickie" is in my craft studio in a little glass case! The other is going to my bestest blogger friend Lulu in Maryland!

As for contests? Oh yeah! I get tons of responses when I have one of 'em. Some of those have come back time and time again and we've become "fast" blogging friends. Others I don't see or hear from until I have another giveaway!! LOL

But, I WILL say that some of the friends I have met on "here" visit all the time,,,some leave comments, some leave emails and I've really enjoyed getting to know them-I laugh with them, cry with them and learn a lot from them!

Can we meet some weekday up near La Conner for lunch? I would love that,,,,just working at Joyworks on the weekends,,so the rest of my week is flexible!

Email me at Shelly39WA@aol.com and let me know!!

Hugs my dear and kiss that Grandbaby for me~!

I didn't find a "follow" area on your sidebar when I checked in after Farm Chicks,,,,but I'll check again and see!

Dear Krystal!
You've got a great tool there, your pencil!
I think that what you are doing with your pencils is what I'm trying to do with my camera!
Love the atmosphere and the whimsical characters in your drawings!
Have a great day

lulu said...

Well Ms Krys, I guess you got your answer. Lots of folks read your blog, And it sound like they all adore your work as much as I do. OX

Becca said...

I just started reading your blog after I met you at the Farm Chicks. I love your blog, and your art!

Sophia's said...

It was so nice to talk to you at Farm Chicks! You are truly an inspiration to me to keep pluggin' away at this even though the kids are still so very little. You do such beautiful work and I do hope that I win the cute picture since my daughter's name is Lily!


Claudia said...

Hi Krystal, I am new to your blog. I came here via Where Women Create and fell in love with the artwork on your header. Love your wonderful art. I will be exploring your blog a bit more.

Jon and I enjoyed our chat with you at Farm Chicks and still kick ourselves for missing out on the Lily artwork (little Lily that loved to garden) - it so fit our little granddaughter who is four years old. A couple years ago I squealed to find the Bunnies by the Bay Book "Hello I'm Littlebit" - perfect for Lilbit.
Truly admire your fresh originality and sweetness. Exploring the Hutch was a top highlight of the show for us!

Deborah said...

I do read your blog! And I loved meeting you at the Farm Chicks show! Your artwork is so wonderful and I hope that a trip to LaConner is around the corner for me this summer. I'm not particularly into "giveaways".... and tend to shy away from them. Just love reading the posts. I love to get comments on my blog and make comments on others... that way it feels as though I'm not talking to myself! :)

Kickcan and Conkers said...

Oh great, I made it just in time - this is lovely!

Louise said...

So happy to have found your blog thanks to Jennifer Murphy. I am a lover of all things BBTB and also Jennifer's creations. Congratulations on your new grammy status. Our one and only grand child, Katie is in her third year of college. How did that happen??
Looking forward to visiting La Conner, BBTB and the quilt museum very soon now.

Chelle said...

Many, many sweet congratulations on becoming a Grandma...and I adore your art and would consider a piece of it in my own home to be a great treasure!

Connie said...

Krys, I adore your sweet art, drawings and blog! So much fun and whimsical! Thanks for sharing!
