Egg on My Face...And the Winner Is!

Let me share how I picked the winner.  Then I'll share a little about the “egg on my face”.

How I Picked the Winner

I cut up little squares and numbered them 1-53 (the number of followers), mixed them up in my favorite little hobnail bowl. (No, that is not a stray number in the back of the photo.  It’s an extra.)

I assigned a number to each of my followers starting at the first ones on the list.  Then I pulled out the awesome number thirty-seven.

Looking at my list, number thirty-seven.... and the big winner is.... Talie Bagley from Abilene, TX.  Links to Talie's artwork:

Here is one of my favorites from Talie's paintings.

Congratulations Talie!  Thank you so much for following my blog, and here’s to your success.

Egg on My Face

I was so excited this morning to give away the painting, and trying to still figure out Instagram that I was a wee bit distracted.  I clicked on Talie’s avatar and it took me to her profile page on Blogger.  Why I didn’t see her blogspot url there, I don’t know.  But I ended up clicking on the blog she follows called 71 Toes.  So my first blog post, which I have deleted, was about a family with a daughter named Lucy who has a rare syndrome.  It is a very touching story and I encourage you to check out 71 Toes and the I Love Lucy Project.  However, 71 Toes, doesn’t follow this blog and is not the winner of the painting.  Lucky for the real Talie!

     You’ll make mistakes. Get over it.

What’s Next?

1.     What are two of your favorite blunders having to do with selling your art?

2.     What did you learn from them?  (I learned to check facts, and try not to be so      distracted.)

3.      Now have a good laugh!


  1. 1. Panicking because sales are slow then do a hugh sale.
    2. The last time I did this and the Sale ended I sold a painting from someone new to my etsy shop.
