2008 Holiday Pen Giveaway # 2 - Red!

Red has more personal associations than any other color.

Recognized as a stimulant red is inherently exciting and the amount of red is directly related to the level of energy perceived.

Red draws attention and a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element.

To win these red pens, all you have to do is tell me who won the last red pen giveaway I did on this blog. I'll give you a hint, I gave away 14 red pens for Valentines Day in the name of Aphrodite!

I will announce the red pen winner Thursday, good luck!

UPDATE: Anita Davies is the red pen winner, go check her work out here:

A major award!

Ellen over at Pink Ink and Jello nominated me for a blog award. Thank you Ellen!!
Now I am supposed to link up to 7 other bloggers I "heart".
Show the love! Only seven though?
Here are 7 blogs I check almost daily. Go look at 'em, if you don't already.

I have been neglecting this little doodle blog lately and it's nice to know that people are still out there checking up on my work! I'll get back into the rhythm. Thanks again Ellen!
