Every once in awhile I venture out. I love a good read. Funny, smart, thoughtful, spiritual, you name it. I'm perfectly content to leave a thought or two and then be on my way. But sometimes you make a serendipitous find. You stumble across something that grabs hold and you can't help but go back time and again. It was just a couple of weeks ago that I happened upon this site called Robynn's Ravings.

If you are like me, you'll visit a site because the story telling and the writing is just that good or there is some other compelling reason to go back. Robynn's writing is just that good and entertaining. Hey, our favorite Pioneer Woman even commented on an essay she wrote. Hows that for an endorsement? But if that weren't enough to draw you in, there is a contest she is running this week. When she attended a writer's conference she had two magazines tell her nobody would find her interesting. So she set out to prove them wrong! Hmmm, I'll let you be the judge. Up for grabs are two 50 dollar gift cards from Amazon. Make sure you read through the rules for the contest and then decide if you want to participate. ( I am supposed to get an extra chance to win if you go over there and tell her I sent you, but in all fairness, just go on your own accord to keep our chances of winning fair :)

It just so happens to be hump day today too. So be sure to head over to Gitz's and leave her a comment for a chance to win one of her canvases.

Good luck everyone!

I am updating as I see PW announced a short contest herself... up for grabs is a 500 dollar Apple gift card! Go quick, go now!


  1. I just commented and mentioned YOU, lovely lady. Then I read her Cinderella article and LOVED it.

    Ok, and since you mentioned the hump day, I need your opinion... I went a little more grungy with the canvas this week. Do you feel it, or do you like the cleaner look better? Just trying to mix it up but not sure about it...

    Hope you win at amazon or apple or something today!!!

  2. Gitz, okay I just went to look again... the term that comes to my mind is "rustic"... and from a wrought-iron, distressed wood, anitque-y, vintage-y loving girl, I happen to love it!

    Seriously Sara, you do know that we love the canvases because they come from YOU first and foremost! And they evoke strong positive feelings... You should continue to create them however you want them, rustic/grunge, clean lines, doodle-y (????), whatever inspires you! As long as the essence of you comes through, you pick the vehicle you want to showcase your talent... just paint on!

    Thanks for checking out Robynn, I am glad you liked her... check out her bear story for giggles some time!

  3. OMGOODNESS (and believe me, that's usually a limited subject), what an endorsement! I'm looking behind me to see who you're talkin' about but I thank you MOST kindly for thinking up all those words to say about me. You ARE gifted!

    Looking forward to hanging out together! :)

  4. I did it! Love her spunk. Thanks for the tip. I did PW's contest too. What fun!

  5. Robynn,

    I hope you are having FUN today, you are indeed WORTHY, so you can stop looking over your shoulder (unless there is something you haven't told us about yet.)

    Anita, I checked out your post and boy do I have to chew on that one for awhile :) I love how you make me think!


I welcome what you have to say. Thanks for taking the time to grace me with your thoughts and words!

When you get lucky
