Happy Sunday everyone. I sure hope anyone living in the NYC area has gotten a chance to go out this weekend because I have a feeling this will be the last point in the season where the weather is hot but not stiflingly so. 
Also, I would like to announce a giveaway. I promised myself that is soon as this blog turned a year old (two weeks from now!) or got 100 followers, whichever came first, I’d make that happen. As things are looking, both things are probably going to happen around the same time. At any rate, if you’ve been enjoying the artwork here on My Style Canvas, perhaps you’ll want to enter because the prize is a custom illustration of you. It can be something you use on the header or sidebar of your blog or just something you pass on to your sweetheart in a fancy frame to make sure you’re never out of sight or mind. Up to you! All you have to do to enter is follow me on Google Reader. Extra entry for following me on Bloglovin’ and an extra entry for recommending entering the giveaway on another blog. (Just leave me a comment with the link.) Also leave your e-mail address in the comments if you enter so I know how to contact you. I will announce the winner on Sunday, July 31. Good luck and thank you so much for following My Style Canvas. It’s been a great year online and interacting with readers has been a huge part of that.
Fine print: The illustration will be based on a photo you give me. Based on the photo, I’ll figure out the way to make this piece look its very best–whether it’s by use of color, b/w, just a touch of color, some background or none, etc.
