I'm Late, I'm Late, For a Very Important Date....



















I'm anxiously looking forward to seeing the new Alice In Wonderland movie. Alice in Wonderland was one of my favorite books and movie when I was a child. I loved the whimsy of it, the great descriptions in the book and of course the colorful animation of Walt Disney's version on film. The phrase "I'm late, I'm late", always pops into my mind when I am running late. I can imagine that big footed rabbit with his pocket watch rushing off in a big hurry with Alice following on his heels.

What I am I late for? A give away! I had intended to post the give away the last week of February. Of course I'm not too far off but it's late none-the-less. So many other things have vied for my time and energy. Monday and Tuesday of this week I was running so fast I thought I was going to pass myself. I finally found time to paint on Wednesday. I have a couple of orders to finish and get out but first things first. The give away!!

Please follow the rules for the giveaway so you are not disqualified.

1). you must be a follower of my blog

2). you must post a comment on this page. I will not find you if you comment on a different post.

3). Due to postage, only US and Canadian residents qualify.

It is not a requirement but I would greatly appreciate if you would post my give away on your blog.

The winner of the give away will be announced March 27th 2010.

This folk art design was painted on a primitive sheep cut from a piece of 1" pine. "One nation under God" is of course a line from our pledge of allegiance. I never thought I would live in a time when that one line would cause so much controversy. I hope I never see the day that they take it out. Our nation is a blessed nation. Our forefathers were men and women of great faith. It took faith to build a nation, a republic that upholds democracy and the rights of its peoples. As long as our flag flies, I hope and pray that we will always be "one nation under God".

Willa, Willa, Willa...I a have to tell you the last time I left you a comment wishing you to get well I called you by the wrong name. I am so embarrassed. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive. I had a really long day at work and had not been getting enough sleep with my husband being gone and all, but I wanted to catch up on everyones blog and my computer starts going crazy opening all these windows and so I didn't get to proof read any thing... I again am so sorry. I am glad to see you feeling better. I would love to sign up for the give away if that's ok I will post it on my blog if I can figure out how.
