Chat and Time for a Giveaway!

This month I'm celebrating 7 years of almost constant blabbering, I mean blogging!
It's been a long, fun, sometimes irritating (when the computer acts up) ride.
The first few post were far in between. I figured, having 3 readers and one of them being my cat, it was ok to skip days or weeks without showing up.  (◠‿◠)

I have a wonderful group of blog friends now; we share giggles, art and bits of our daily lives. And one of the things I enjoy most is helping people, or bumping into blogs with the help I need at any given moment, so I will start posting more tutorials on blogging, and art stuff. After all, in my opinion, that's what the internet is all about. Well that, and online shopping! And cat videos. And forwarding inspiring quotes and funny jokes. And... ok, you get the point.

Now, for the giveaway! update winners HERE

I am going to give away 7 hand made goodies.
5 small artworks for domestic/international mailing, and 2 large/bulgy paintings for the US only. Sorry about that my friends, but I don't want to deal with paper forms and a crazy shipping fee to an unexpected place like Timbuktu. But absolutely EVERYONE from any country can participate!

To Play:
* Grab the blog button, Share with everyone, the more the merrier!
* Post, tweet, FB, share in yahoo groups, Pinterest... anywhere you want to share,
* Then just come and tell me in this post that you want to be added.

*  AND Tell me which gift number you like best to win, so chances are you will get that one!
          1- (2 ACEO) chicken, & pencil portrait
          2- (2 ACEO) Monalisa & Blond girl
          3- (2 ACEO) Hands with hearts
          4- Skelly paper doll
          5- 6x9 girl with clay pot painting
          6- Wood Frida Kahlo mini painting (just US)
          7- Donna portrait 11x15 (just US)


In August 15 I will select the 7 winners randomly. 
Good luck and thanks for being part of my blog ♥


  1. Hi Martha, just stopping in to say hello and wow, that is a wonderful giveaway. Someone will be very lucky. As for the "margarita" glass, it would actually be iced tea. tee hee. Once in a while a margarita sounds great. :) Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. 6 and 3 are my favorites. I'll grab the blog button and blog about the give away next week. I also need to get back to figuring out how to enroll in the faces class.

  3. Seven years, Martha! Wow! I just love your paintings and think #7 is just fabulous. However, I won one of your paintings in a former giveaway so I'd want someone else to have a chance to have some Ayala Art in their home. All your work is so expertly done. Beautiful.

  4. Wow! 7 years? That is a long time. :) Congratulations for sticking at it for so long. I twittet and I posted it on my FB. They are all just fabulous but my weakness are ATC's so #2 would be my fave. :)

  5. Congrats on the 7 years of blabbing Lol, you are one of the most energetic and constant (and let's not forget creative) bloggers non line and I will grab a button when I'm on my computer in the next couple of days (I'm using an iPad at the moment and can't 'grab' anything because I'm not sure how...

    1. The only rule is to tell me what price you want so i can send the right thing if you win :oD The blog button is to decorate the blog for those that like that, it's a way of sharing. Thanks for participating!
