Pairing: Irina & Lucy + Giveaway at 50,000

Well, there we go, January whizzed past in a matter of moments. How can we be 1/12 through 2008 already? I'm glad so many of you enjoyed the white posts. I will continue to post some of them through February, after all, it is still a wintery month here in Scotland (as evidenced by the second day of snow gales outside. But there will be a lot more colour as well, I need the colour.

I'll ease into the switch over with what I think is a good wintery pairing. I'm such a huge fan of Irina's illustrations, and this one looks so good matched with Lucy's brooch. I do like a good pairing, watch this space for more in the future. Happy February everyone.

Now, in other news... Today, or tomorrow I will be getting my 50,000 visitor since adding the Clustr Map to my blog last May (see side bar).

My Clustr Map 7 Jan 2008 with 'show smaler clustrs' option on, Europe has totally disappeared! Hello everyone.

As far as I understand it doesn't include people viewing through rss feeds like bloglines, so I'm pretty thrilled and astonished. To mark the occasion I'm going to give away one of my little handmade books to one person who comments on the day it hits th big 50. I'll get Mr P to draw a name from a hat at the weekend and I'll contact the winner to get their address details.

Only one problem... you may have a long wait for your prize! My books are still packed up so I won't be sending it until I find them all and start posting out the pieces for the book collaboration this year, which is all a bit health dependent just now. Good luck, I hope you win!

Hey, happy 50'000! I'm coming via netvibes, just so you know, I don't miss any of your posts... Go on like that, take care of you!

Hey Cally- I come via Bloglines normally, but do pop in in real life from time to time as well- I think i'm going to go and sign myself up for one of those clustrMaps and see where people find me from.

Not sure of the way I come to visit but I do - to see your interesting work and selections. From NZ, the other side of the world in the midst of sweltering heat the idea of white is cool. Hillary

Congratulations on 50,000 - how cool is that map! I really enjoyed your winter white series. Have a great weekend. Cheers from the state of Washington

Thanks very much for the dedication! (I always think of Roy Castle R.I.P. when I hear that word) Glad you're sort of still going. I don't know if there's any small print banning friends and family from your tantalising giveaway but I'm prepared to fall out with you if there is. I hear Lucy is anyone's for a can of Chum - a bit of 'playful' pawing at your paperwork ought to do it...

I was just thinking about Irina's work today (great pairing). Congrats on your 50,000 visitors since the Cluster map. Pity I missed the chance to win one of your handmade books, such a fantastic prize.
