Happy birthday to this blog!

Above is the first picture I ever posted on this blog, exactly one year ago today! The picture was taken in 1998 - 10 years ago! - and it shows my humble beginnings, trying to figure out a way to start a business, sell my artwork, and be a mom to two little ones at the same time (while also working a full-time job in the corporate sales world).

Needless to say, Linoleum Hogass Records didn't last very long - at least, I wasn't able to keep setting up a booth on the weekends while doing everything else. But I kept painting and creating and when I lost my job in 2003, I became Eye Pop Art - a little bit older, a little bit smarter.

And here I am now, wishing a happy first birthday to the Eye Pop Art blog! If this blog could eat cake, it would definitely want chocolate today.

In honor of my "blog birthday," I am offering a special in the Eye Pop Art shop - every order placed today will be shipped with a FREE Basic Black Record Cuff (a $10 value). Just mention "Blog birthday" in notes to seller to get your free cuff!

Thanks for all your support, comments, feedback, and love!
