The Benefits of 53


I had so much fun with 53 in my last post that I thought I would carry it a step further. Why should I be the only one getting presents? So here's a fun "thang."


For 53 hours (starting now and ending at 5 p.m. Friday MST) I am offering...

53% off any piece of fabric art on www.lipstickranch.com. Just pick what you want and e-me with your selection. Don't do the Buy Now because that has full price attached to it.

AND 53% off my One-on-One Individual Workshop. This is a 3-day intense creative retreat with just you and me in my studio in Colorado. 53% off for only 53 hours. And you pick the dates! 2009 or 2010.
Info at www.studioretreats.ning.com...left-hand column-scroll down.
Book before July 9, 2010 or I will be 54!

For the same 53 hours all the other workshops (dates on Studio Retreats) are 20% off. These workshops have limited spaces available. And there's NOT 53 of them.

As for me...I am going to curl up in the hammock for 53 minutes, make 53 edits on the book I am writing and treat myself to 53 Junior Mints. Ain't life grand?

Oh...and I made this Matisse collage in 53 minutes!

Avery happy birthday to you tomorrow,-hope it will be filled with sunschine, laughter, and happy moments.
As the sweet wonderfull woman you are ,you offered us Camp folks, to buy a piece from your beautifull art for half price, and its a wonderfull present , so I at once ordered one af the pieces I have alwayes admired, and wanted to own. I hope and pray it will be mine ,and that I will soon recieve a bill to confirm it will soon be here in my house, to admire, and love for ever.
Thank you so much dear.

Dang It! I am going to start putting "pressure" on Dave...I SO want to take one of your classes. -smile- on the putting pressure part. He's my best cheerleader.
"May the Good Lord take a likin' to you!" Remember that ending?

Ahem...note to Blackfeatherfarm - I agree with you...artists don't feel their age the same as others but I sure do feel my bones!

KC Willis said...

Thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes. You made my day so special...really. If I would have known that blogging would have opened up my world to so many wonderful friends I would have done it a long time ago! You are appreciated....and have a special spot in my heart.

Well . . . you aren't TOO far behind me in age, but you'll never catch up! Best wishes on your 54th birthday, and thanks for the inspiration. I've been part of the fiber arts group but haven't had time to jump in yet, so this is a wonderful motivation to keep up with you all! Have a blessed day . . .

I selected you via Sandra's list (Thistle Cove Farm). Happy Birthday! I just became 50 last month. You seem so very talented.

grittyjane said...

How cool that it all seems to be coming together and all under the number 53 which is an 8 in numerology. It is the number of "money". The number eight attracts it. On it's side it represents infinity. Go 53! I will join you soon in December
