Jumping a Different Box....

Hugest thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes last week
it made me feel special despite it being a box jumper of a birthday
during the week I actually hit another milestone of sorts
and jumped into the past 300 followers box
which is a big two hands in the air dance around the room type deal for me

It was this time last year that I decided to get in and do the blog a bit more seriously
well maybe seriously isn't the right word
but I wanted to make it a bit more like me 
and to give up trying to make it all professional
most importantly I decided to make art that I like, that reflects my life
and stop trying to do it all "properly" if you know what I mean

at the end of the day I used to find it all a bit tiring
blogging used to remind me of doing the half dressed school drop off 
you know where you put on a nice shirt, tidy your hair etc
but on the bottom half you are in pj's and bed socks
and you spend the whole time praying nothing happens
so you will be forced to get out of the car....

although one day I did see it happen when a student couldn't get her bag out of the trunk
and the poor mum had to get out and help her, but she handled it with complete style
despite the fact that she was wearing bright pink pj pants covered in purple love hearts
which clashed with her oh so perfectly business suited top half
and people were honking and laughing
she bowed to the crowd and drove off with head held high
she was my hero for days after that

anyway blogging used to feel exactly like that
I was trying to show the world the neat , tidy respectable me
which really is an illusion on a good day... some may even say a delusion
and one day I was totally over it all and figured I had nothing to lose
I did the equivalent of doing drop off in full pj's ,complete with bed head 
and it was hugely liberating and fun and easy
never under estimate the allure of easy
I love easy and there is no way I would go back ... not for a minute
So anyway
a year ago I set a bit of a goal
well not really a goal, because just typing that word makes me hyperventilate a bit
more a wouldn't it be nice if this time next year I could hit the 200 mark type thought
so it is very cool that I am over that... and to celebrate I am going to do a give away
my 302 followers give-away...
and the 302 thing is important because if I mention bodily functions too much 
I seem to lose one or two followers
which is cool, because lets be honest there is only so much snot we can all handle
but I wanted those two extras as a buffer 
in case I decide to write about rampant hay fever again soon



The four paintings up for grabs are the four I have posted here
and are all ink and watercolour, and are originals
they are unmatted and on paper that is 13cm x 19 cm
which is about 5 in x 7 1/2 in I think so they are only little
but you should be able to pop them into a frame easily to pretty them up
and all you have to do is say in your comment that you want to be in the draw
I will attempt to work a random number thingy
but failing that then names in a hat will suffice
and if you link up to this in some way I will throw in an extra entry for you
just let me know in an email or in the comment section and I will take it from there
I will close entries at midnight next Thursday and announce the winners soon after

thanks to all of you for your support and being part of the fun
you are appreciated  and good luck ... xx

 P S  happy Friday to all the Paint Party Friday people 
PSS ... Facebook people who don't have a bog... 
just message me that you would like to enter,
 or pop a comment on the status update and I will enter you in there...xx

the last two posts links are....

Rita said...

Happy PPF!

RosA said...

Congratulations on 302! (I have no aspirations for any such figure.) I don't mind the hayfever/bodily functions chat but the chicken tongue business makes me a bit squeamish. I love your "everyday" art, and it IS collectable!

Bev said...

lydiapuenteharris said...

Debbie said...

Congratulations on reaching 300 followers! I love your work, and your approach to blogging. Please count me in your drawing!! This week I especially love the first piece of the stacked bowls.

Linda Brightwingsofsummer said...

congrats on the 300!! Would love to win some of your art! I often blog in my tiger print PJ's... but usually remember to change before heading out the door! The same can NOT be said of changing out of paint clothes however... lol!

Jennifer McLean said...

OMG, OMG, OMG, put me down for a spot as a potential winner. HOW does one choose between the four?? Torture, it is. hehehe.
Love Jenn

(Congrats on your hitting 303, WooHooo!)

Abirthda and 302 followers, no surprise when your blog is always so enjoyable.
I would LOVE even a square inch of your art, so put me in the hat, please (big hat needed). I particularly love the pears and the bowls.

Lynn Cohen said...

Wow 302 followers! Fun being one of them!

Nordljus said...

Oh, put me in, please! 300+ followers and continually growing, no doubt, so exciting! Congratulations! You are an inspiration to everyone who follows and reads your blog! I've been wanting to make some changes to my blog for ages, it doesn't quite feel the 100% pjs and bed head me yet, but I'm working on it. Although at the moment, I've got something else on my mind entirely :). Have a terrific weekend, Tracey! xx

Giggles said...

Hugs Giggles

Laura Moore said...

Congrats on reaching 302 and here's to the next 302. Good luck with it for the future. It's one of the first I look on a Friday.

Pointy Pix said...

the half-dressed school run is such a good analogy to the whole concept of blogging. I totally agree about making it more about the real you and what makes you tick and less about what a 'professional' website/blog should perhaps be. I've been so lax with my blogging the last while (there's so much going on in the background at the moment which I'm bursting to tell folk but can't just yet and it's been distracting me from art and blogging) but I really want to start blogging more frequently than I have been. Congrats on getting over 300 - I'm stuck at 130-odd and don't really know how to increase it!
I'd love to own one of your original artworks so please count me in for the give away!!

Hwee said...

Congratulations on hitting over 300 followers! It's liberating to be comfortable in being yourself. :-)

NatashaMay said...

I just love how into details you go with your illustrations. Love it!

WrightStuff said...

I'm so glad you're you!

Would love to be entered in the draw, just don't leave me in the drawer! Sorry, bad plays on words...

Am totally loving the PJ Mum story - makes me feel good about myself :)

Carolyn Dube said...

A belated happy birthday & congratulations on 300!

jerden said...

Well, you got me curious there, so I actually went back to the start of your blog in 2010 to see the difference. And you're right, this is so much more "real" to read and way more fun. Loved the story about the lady with the pink pj's. And I love your work, especially the 2 top ones. Count me in for the draw, would love to win!

denthe said...

okay, I just commented with the wrong login, so now I'm logged in with the right one: the above comment from jerden is actually me: denthe ;-)

Snap said...

302 ... Yippeee!!!! I promise to give your bowls a very happy home! or .. the pears or the flowers or the paint tubes! :D :D

Susan said...

You write what we love to read! I know many identified with your PJ Mom. So that is why 302 of us look forward to each post. Congratulations and keep up the good work (and PLEASE add me to the draw).

Sandra Busby said...

Okay - so I have updated my latest blog post. Have also tweeted it, facebooked it and google + it!
By this time tomorrow you should have 400 followers!!
Yes, I rather love the idea of owning an original Tracey Fletcher :0) Trouble is, which to pick???
Hmm... I'm thinking those pears would look lovely in my kitchen!
Good luck everyone :0)

Jessica Sporn said...

I would love to be in the draw! Thank you. For Fall Fearless, we use www.random,org, Easy and free! So it has never occurred to me to tidy up my top half when I go to school drop off in my p.j.s --- great idea! Especially since I often take a detour to the supermarket to pick up a few things. I wonder if they'd think I was even MORE crazy if I got half dressed...

Vicki Holdwick said...

Oh goodness! I'd love to win any one of these lovelies.

I so identify with the pj Mom, except I don't even pretend to be dressed on the top part. I frequently drop my grandgirls off at school with bedhead and jimjams. No biggee!

xoxo

Martha said...

I'm in! Love your work!

Gloria said...

Just shows being you is the best way to go. Congrats on your 300 plus mark. Your humour is always welcome, and you can put my name in the hat for welcoming one of your drawings into my home(please sanitize before sending!):-)

aimee said...

I'm kind of inept at the Google follower thing so I hope I did it correctly! I swear, I am going to take a picture of my stack of bowls and send them to you (because I definitely couldn't draw them.) I went bonkers when I found them at That Magic Place, my six year old immediately broke one, I went apoplectic and bought two more and I might even go back and get a set of backups for the others!

aimee said...

and by the way... thank you for writing what you did about the 'half dressed life'... beautifully said. i needed that today.

Mary Walker Designs said...

Yes! Love the half dressed drop off that's a good one. Congrats on 300 followers

stefanie stark said...

Oh Tracey what a great post! Especially the "half-dressed-story" made my day when I read it this morning. I am so happy that you decided to drop off in full pj's, complete with bed head :))))
I love this so much!
Many thanks for sharing all these thoughts!
And yes, of course do I want to be in the draw for one of these happy pictures!

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

Grandma Nancy Sapp

Gloria said...

Excellent post and work. I can almost see that lady in her pj'z. How funny. The other day I walked out of the house with my pink garden clogs on and didn't realize I had them on. It wasn't till I was at the store and getting of the car that I noticed I had them on. Aaaarrrrgh! Oh well I though, Mario Batali wears them out and about, why not me. tee hee.
In any event, love your your work, it's always excellent quality and who wouldn't want a piece of your work. Yes, please enter me and congrats on the 302, ooops, I see 306. I already follow you and have been. Thanks and Happy PPF!

Tammie Lee said...

Linda said...

Congratulations!!! Great post too! You are one of the watercolor artists I've visited since joining PPF not long ago and you also inspired me to attempt something using watercolor.Thank you. LOVE your bowls!! They remind me of some large French coffee bowls.

Jo Murray said...

Glad to hear that you are just being you...it works for me. Just 'you' .. is a talented artist whose spontaneity is most appealing. Boy can you draw!!!!

I'd love to be in the draw. Those bowls are to die for...and pears are my fave fruit.

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

Happy milestone! :) Lovely, detailed work.

Shauna said...

Wow, I really love your style of work. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. I had to laugh at the whole drop off school thing, because I have been guilty as charged for that. :0) Luckily my little ones are still young, so they don't seem to mind when Mom drops them off to school looking a little bit of a mess. Congrats on your blog followers. I am happy to be follower #308. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway as well. I love all of the paintings but the floral painting really tugs at my heart strings. Take Care!

missy k said...

I am a very happy follower not deterred by accounts of any bodily functions so far!

Winchester is a brilliant place to visit... do it!!!! Sorry I can't help out with your bathroom next week - I'm booked up to paint shelves and cupboards in my kitchen and living room!x

Christine said...

congrats on your 300th post! I would love to win one of those gorgeous pieces of art, you're so talented!

soulbrush said...

Congrats pal. I think it is normal that we all wear masks for different people and different occassions- but I never did that when dropping my kids off- I was always too worried someone would see and talk about me- Now in my 'older' years I would wear the pyjamas and curlers in my hair and not give a damn. Of course I am gagging to win one of your pieces of art. GGGGGAAAYYGYGYGGGGGGGGGGGG.

Debbie said...

congrats on all the followers! you are such a talented artist and writer. I enjoy following your blog to hear of your latest adventures and to see your wonderful drawings!

I stumbled onto your blog about 4months ago. I love your free form writing style, your humor, your artwork. I have even shared some of your funniest with my husband who also likes your writing style. bravo too you for putting it all out there. I especially love the pear painting, so I cross my fingers and hope to be entered and picked.

Belinda Carson said...

Catherine... said...

Hi, I'm down the bottom here and would love a chance to win some of your gorgeous artwork. Love the Pj story. Found myself caught out when picking my teenage daughter up from a party at 3am. Said daughter's friends wanted me to come and join in the party. My daughter would not come out. I was wearing my comfy brushed cotton monkey print pjs, and my Ugg boots. There was little chance of me getting out of the car to drag my daughter out of the party. Thank goodness for mobile phones...Not sure what I was worried about, all her friends were plastered, I could have just flounced in and said I'd been to a fancy dress party....um, thought for next time... :)

Gill said...

Congratulations on all your followers!
I would love to own a piece of your fabulous work!

Robin Panzer Art said...

I applaud that you have "come out" as who you are and if you lose a few followers, well they are just missing out! Love what you posted today and winning any one of them would be more than exciting. Those stacked bowls are so fabulous. Hope you have a wonderful PPF!

KaReN EiLeeN said...

I am a new follower. So glad I am. I had a give away on my blog and Cindy Atkins won..that's how I found you and I am a forever-follower. Love your art. It is so soft and inviting.

Congrats! What a wonderful milestone to celebrate and well over your '200 would be nice' mark. I love your blog and your art, I read all your posts, because of your humor, tell it like it is kinda style of blogging and all the pretty pictures to go along with it. I can see why so many people follow along. Keep it coming!

Ayala Art said...

Add me too! :oD
I think your blog is so much fun to read! Plus the images are sparkly fresh with great colors... And i do get it, the "not properly" part, I feel the same way ♥

Terrie Purkey said...

I'm late to the party, but hopefully not too late. My computer crashed and I spent all weekend discovering it can't be fixed, buying a new one, blah blah blah. So I'm on hubby's til mine gets workable....

Anyway, you know I adore your work and am here to snap up the chance to win one....And can I just say - we're all so glad you gave the 'formal' blogging because your own self is so delightfully quirky! We love a good quirk! :)

I'll link to you on my blog as soon as I get my computer back (maybe later today?) -woohoo, 2 chances!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Oh please put my name in the box!!! I'd be thrilled to have one of your beauties to enjoy in real life And I love that you're not "serious" all the time- bring on the bodily function posts- we all can use more smiles!

Sue Marchetti said...

Hi Tracey,
I've been a secret fan for over a year, following from a far without joining but telling all my artsy friends about you. Count me in on the free give away, I joined up just after the 300 mark and you can't possibly scare me away by writing about snot and such. Thanks for being the funnest most talented sort of inspiration that has sent me in sorts of creative directions.

Annie Pazoo said...

Congratulations on the milestone of followers AND your birthday. I'm at the other end of the box (seems like only yesterday I was entering this box) and kinda dreading next year and starting over in a new age group. Ack!

Cheryl said...

Tracey, I am in awe of your art work and your blog.

Uhh-may-zing!!

Would love to have my name in the hat for your art give away.

See you at Artsyville!

JKW said...

Congrats on your 300 followers and your birthday. Today is my birthday. . . we are close. I love the bowls and the flowers. Blessings, Janet PPF

Gina Sismilich said...

My whole life is full of pink pajamas with purple hearts (metaphorically speaking that is - don't even own pjs - wear shorts and tshirts to bed). I did once have to get out of the car and take my grandson into school (can't remember why) and I wasn't wearing a bra under my tshirt - folded my arms across my chest and held my head high. Anyway - love your paintings and would like to win them.

Leonie said...

Congratulations! I'm late to the party, but completely in love with your illustrations. God bless List It Tuesday for showing the way to new and fabulous blogs to follow.

I love your illustration of the colourful bowls (I have bowls like that, so it may have something to do with my love of bowls like that in general, but it is certainly magnified by your amazing talent). Fingers crossed! :)

Bluebell Woods said...

I hope I am not too late but I loved your introduction and so I am following your blog.....if I am not to late to enter please put my name in the hat.......if I am too late well I am following anyway. I love your art

Em said...

Congrats on all your followers.
