Often announcements are made by saying “Without further ado”, but let’s get right to it without any ado:
Thank you to those who entered my giveaway contest for a free one-year subscription to Mixed Media Art Magazine. Out of everyone who typed “MM” into the comments section, it’s now time to put your names in a hat and choose one of you at random. And the winner is…drum roll…
Congrats Linda G, I’ll be contacting you shortly so we can get your contact info and make that subscription happen. A big thanks also to the magazine’s creator and editor Barbra Sunquist, who was generous enough to offer this prize to my readers. I encourage everyone to go check out her magazine at the iTunes store, and to follow it on the Mixed Media Facebook page.
And now a bit of that “further ado” that we put off at the beginning:
I had to laugh out loud this morning at the absurdity (and awesomeness) of this piece of news:
This is A French Frye in Paris being cited as a source on a Wikipedia page. Ha! I guess you never know what you’ll wake up to. How did it happen? You can check out the page here to find out. It’s not my most amazing contribution to the human race, but I’m tickled nonetheless. :)
Finally, I noticed we cracked 40,000 hits and I can’t let that go by without a big warm MERCI to all my fabulous readers! As a gift I’m giving you a beautiful stroll through the Louvre via this great video by Florent Igla. I was moved when I watched this, realizing that I’d spent time in all the rooms seen in it. And between the music and identifying with the girl and realizing my stupendous luck of living here, it made me, well…emotional. Yes–a video of the Louvre made cry, there I said it. I hope you’ll like it too.
