Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Last year’s Ultimate Blog Party was a blast with almost 1000 participating bloggers. So make sure you don’t miss out on this one. It is a fantastic opportunity to introduce your blog to a bunch of new people and to find new blogs that you will want to read regularly.
As well, The Ultimate Blog Party features tons of prizes.
All women bloggers are invited regardless of parental status, religious affiliations, etc. This party is about having fun with friends and meeting new people.

You Don't Want To Miss This...
The Ultimate Blog Party 2008 Has Started! Click Here.

To celebrate The Ultimate Blog Party here at laketrees this week I am inviting everyone (male and female) to email me their favourite piece of Art Work

    I guess I get to be the first to leave a comment. Kim, you have some nice work here, and I love your idea for your blog party. I just sent you an email of one of my favorite paintings. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the party. If you have a chance, stop by my site some time and drop me a line!

    hi Jerri
    great to meet you ...
    I love your choice...
    this is one of my all time favourites too.

    thanks for joining the party...

    Hmm.. I am not sure if I have a fav piece of art... I like a lot of things but I never can remember who they are by or even where I saw them mostly.... but I am enjoying your blog and will have to stop by again to see what others suggest!
    Happy Blog Party

  • Kim 9.3.08
     

    hi Katef...
    welcome... and thanks...
    plenty of time to submit your fave if you change your mind... :)

    hi Chris
    have a fun time where ever you are :)

    Art is one thing I don't know a lot about. I do love Georgia O'Keefe's work, and Grandma Moses, I guess because she started so late in life (which shows it's never too late to do anything). I make pillowcases, which I guess is a form of art, when I match colors that go together well. Have a great day.

    GREAT idea... i just wish i could think of something to share. We have a lot of asian art in our house from when I lived in Korea.

    Strange this subject should come up today - I have just posted about my "today's favourite art work".

    Now I think I had better hide from all true artists and Princess Mary fans - byeeeeee ;)

    I was kicked out at the door even though my purple polyester shirt matched my lime green walking shorts.

    First paint deleted, now I cannot paaaaartee.

    It's not easy not being green.

    I emailed you one image. Gracias.

  • Debbie Dolphin 11.3.08
     

    Hi Miss KLT UBP!

    Holy Fishburners!

    My funny Ask key Art of Bugs Bunny was invited to the Party?

    Since every browser doesn’t display Ask key Art correctly, a correct image of Bugs Bunny was added to my comment at my last post.

    P.S. unfortunately, Blogger doesn't allow images to be attached to comments which explains my experiment with Ask key Art in Blogger comments. More clues to the whereabouts of Miss MP's secret blog can be found in my comment at my last post.

  • Kim 11.3.08
     

    thank you John...
    sounds like you had just the right party gear...lol
    I will post your "marsh.land" today...
    and Rose pics too :)

    thanks Michelle...

    Hi Kim,

    Thanks for the info on the blog party! Will check it out!

    Is it too late to send over my favorite art? i.e. Will you be updating this post?

    Your painting after Vermeer is of course, exquisite! :)

  • Lynda Lehmann 13.3.08
     

    Oops, just me, signing on for follow-up comments...

  • Kim 13.3.08
     

    no it's not too late at all Lynda...
    would love to see your wonderful work here :)

  • Speedcat Hollydale 13.3.08
     

    Quite a fine looking assembly of works here. Makes for an eye-pleasing post Kim. You have brought my attention and admiration of art to the forefront of my mind again.
    I have to say, Debbie's addition brings a unique light on the subject. I may have to look up an old post with a Hollydale Truck!

    Happy day,
    Eric

  • Kim 13.3.08
     

    I think you will have to submit your Hollydale Truck Eric...
    it will make a fine addition :)
    and I agree on Debbie's Bunny...especially considering Easter is just round the corner :)

  • Szczepan 14.3.08

  • Netster 14.3.08
     

    Wow party!

    Kim,

    I see you have did some house keeping on your blog.

    I think your pages look cleaner and easy on the eyes now compare to the previous one.

    Great work! :)

  • Kim 14.3.08
     

    thanks very much Netster...

    Kim,
    I tried to put your 101 Artists Blogs icon on my site but couldn't get it to position correctly. I hope a link under fav. art blogs will do. I'd like to do more with my blog but I'm not too techno savy. Thanks for adding me to your list.

  • Kim 20.3.08
     

    you're welcome Jean...
    and thanks for the text link too...
    I will be posting some more badges (in different sizes) with my next update...so you may find one that suits your blog :)

    Big hugs to ya!
