Let's get this party STARTED!!


Today is the first day of Blogtoberfest 2010, hosted by none other than our fabulous hostess from "Down Under", Tinniegirl!

It's 31 days of daily blogging from hundreds of participants around the world and I'm excited to be participating for my second year. I do hope you'll consider joining in the fun! Just press the Blogtoberfest button in the right-hand sidebar of this blog and it will take you to the sign-in page at Tinniegirl's blog where you'll find some basic info on adding the button to your  own blog...

What a beautiful logo for 2010!
You can then visit the many participants of the festival and check out the giveaways taking place at other blogs - it's a great way to meet fabulous bloggers!

To see who is hosting giveaways throughout the month, just go to the "HQ of Giveaways": Curly Pops! She's got a special page set-up to see when and where all giveaways will take place.

Blogtoberfest is such a fun event and I've been planning a few things for this year. Here's what you can look forward to at my own blog during this festival:
  • A daily post, of course!
  • A giveaway or two 
  • Some posts and challenges to get you thinking about your Artist Self
  • FUN! After all, "all work and no play" makes a for a VERY UNHAPPY beast
  • A recurring theme will be woven through my blog posts so keep your eyes open for it - you may be quizzed at the end of the month!! ;)
To welcome my new guests, here is a post from last year's festival that gives you a little bit of history about me...but I will be expanding on that history for tomorrow's post so stay tuned and welcome to my blog!
The Creative Beast says: Drink in JOY!

Time is running away from me so I won't be able to comment on all the posts I've missed while my internet was down, but I've had a lovely read through them all. Hooray for Blogtoberfest - that was how I 'found' you last year! :-)
