When 31 Becomes 11

Today is April 1st, which means the 31 days of March are now part of history. And this means that my series 31 Artists/31 Days has come to an end. Thank you all for the positive feedback you have given me about this project. It has been a pleasure introducing you all to artists that are new to you...and re-introducing you to some of your old friends as well. Of course even though these postings have ended, there is still so much to discover about each of these artists, and many more, on the pages of my book The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed.


If you ever want to visit these posts again, a link can be found on the sidebar of my blog, toward to bottom, where you will also find links to all my other online and live collaborative projects.

As you know, all of you who left comments on my 31/31 posts and/or the 31/31 posts of each spotlighted artist became eligible for my giveaway of 3 signed copies of the book. There were nearly 3,000 comments left in total and the winners have been randomly selected:

Grand prize of a copy of The Pulse of Mixed Media, signed by as many of the contributing artists as I see during my book tour travels, and there will be many, goes to Jo Murray from Jo Murray - Art. Congrats Jo!

Congrats also go out to Tammie Lee from Beauty Flows and Terrie from Creative Explorer, each of whom won a signed copy of the book.

They say "when one door closes, another opens", so now that 31/31 has ended a new series begins. Starting tomorrow and running for 11 consecutive days, I will be sponsoring a traditional blog hop. Eleven bloggers, not connected with the book, will be posting their thoughts and reactions to the book. And, even better, each of them will be answering their choice of survey questions from the book. I will link to each blogger on their assigned day. But here is a preview of the wonderful group you are about to hang out with:

April 2   Rice Freeman-Zachery
April 3   Stephanie Lee
April 4   Ali Edwards
April 5   Ro Bruhn
April 6   Roben Marie-Smith
April 7   Nancy Lefko
April 8   Kelly Kilmer
April 9   Trudi Sissons
April 10 Melody Nunez
April 11 Dina Wakley
April 12 Stephanie Hilvitz

And during this time, I will also be posting about the recent and upcoming events surrounding my book.

This past month has been a nudge for me to get going! Creatively speaking. It's been a thrill to meet everyone. I'll be popping back to your sidebar often! Thanks again for the marvy time. Namaste *smiles* Norma

YAY! I'm thrilled to have won a copy of the book! I've argued with myself all month about ordering one vs waiting.....I'm glad I waited. Can't wait to sit and savor each page. THANKS!

Congratulations to Jo, Tammie Lee, and Terrie! 31 Artists in 31 Days was an incredible creative 'jolt' (just what I needed!). Looking forward to the 11 artist blog hop!
