Yippee Yay Hooray – celebrating 7 years (giveaway!!!)

(art print now available in my shop)

Today I am celebrating 7 years of blogging. Yup, 7 years.

I’ve been doing this for so long now, that doing a blog post is just part of my day, my week, my life.  It has affected me in so many ways — how I think and how I see things — but most importantly, the connections I’ve made over the years through this little place in the big world wide web.

I am incredibly grateful for all that I have learned, for all that I have done and for all of you who have touched my life.

It is kismet!

Thank you for 7 years.


Now, it wouldn’t be a Creative Kismet blogiversary celebration without a little giveaway. So, this year I am giving away SEVEN mini-prints (yes, mini ~ because 7 is a lot!).  Leave a comment telling me which print you like best (take a look HERE – I’ve added a few new prints!). The winners will receive either a 5 x 5 or 5 x 7 inch print and be announced on Saturday!

    I love them all, but I love “Today is a Beautiful Day, Bird and Bloom” – such a great message would be uplifting to see every single day. Thanks for this great opportunity to win one! I’m hoping:)


  4. Maria says:

    Congratulations on your blogging anniversary! Your giveaway is so very generous. If I were to win my favorite is Silence.

  5. Nancy says:

    Congratulations on 7 years in blog land! I am inspired by your art work and there are so many that I love, but my favorite is Believe in Your Dreams. Find Your Sparkle and Treasure Bird were close runner ups, but it’s hard to pick just one.

    Can’t wait to see what create now that you have taken the leap of faith into the next chapter of your life. Thanks for sharing the journey.

  6. Your blog is beautiful and inspiring (discovered it a week ago via Carla Sonheim), may it last for at least another 7 years!
    As for the prints, they are all beautiful, however the owl won my heart.

  7. Lucy Chen says:

    Congratulations, Regina. You’re an inspiration! I like “be grounded” best.

  8. Lynne Rattray says:

    Congratulations Regina – 7 BLOG years is like 7 Hollywood marriage years! No one was blogging back then so you really were a visionary. “Today is a Beautful Day – Bird and Bloom” called to me. I think as today we had the first signs that not only is Autumn here, but that Winter is just a few blinks away, I need something to remind me to snap out of the damp and gloom … to remember that each hour of each day really can be special. It’s just what you choose to make – with your beautiful print I’ll remember to choose Happiness. 🙂 Thanks!

  9. Regina says:

    Oh I love them all, but the Yippee Yay Hooray bird is MARVELOUS!!!

  10. Emily Hawkins says:

    I love, love, love “Live Brightly”!!! I would be thrilled to own it. Congrats on seven years!

  11. Congratulations on seven years of providing a calm and loving voice to the blog world. I would love to win the Little bluebird of Happiness, it speaks to me.

    I am so blessed to have known you and feel the comfort of your friendship.

    “The Red Barn”. It signifies a home (to me) surrounding by beauty… and trees. I love and require lots of trees. 🙂

    I have to say that I love them all, but my favorite is ‘Find Your Sparkle! ‘ What a great message that would be to get up to every day and get the creative juices flowing. I just found your blog tonight, but congrats on 7 years of blogging! I write but have gotten away from it and I’ve really missed it. Now that I have the time I want to get back into it and also back into my art and try some new things, so I’ll be coming back here a lot for inspiration!! Thanks for the chance to win some of your beautiful work!

  34. Kristin says:

  37. Wenonah says:

    Yay for 7 years! I have loved your art since we met at a breastfeeding fair several years ago and I won one of your prints in the raffle. I would so enjoy another print of yours. I love the new “Yipee, Yay Hooray” painting! All of your art is so inspirational and lovely.
