Welcome to my blog and my friend Vicki's wonderful annual "Grow Your Blog" party! My name is Silke. I live in beautiful (but at the moment unusually cold) Savannah, Georgia with my goofy husband Daniel. Ok, we are both goofy in the photo below - you can see that our dog Winslow looks quite embarrassed... We came to Savannah because Daniel started teaching illustration (there's a link to his blog and website on my right sidebar if you are interested) at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
I grew up in Germany, but have lived in the US since the mid 80s, which is also when I met my husband Daniel. In fact, I met him on my very first day in the US. Must have been fate... :)
I love to do anything creative, which wasn't always the case and is a fairly new phenomenon in my life. Five years ago I suddenly started painting and started this blog at the same time. My blog banner was my very first painting. You can see all of my creative endeavors and their progression if you peruse my blog.
I also love to knit and crochet, to sew, to cook and to bake, to read and to travel, to take photos of everything and anything, all of which you can find on my blog. I post a hodgepodge of stuff that is interesting to me and hopefully to you. And I always include lots of photos.giveaway?! Something would be missing, right?
I couldn't exactly decide what to give away, so it'll be a surprise. It'll be something handmade by me - maybe a little painting or a hand knit scarf or something I've sewn. Whatever it'll be I'm sure you'll love it!!
Just leave a comment on my this post (anyone and everyone can enter!) and I'll include you in the drawing on February 15!!
I hope that you will come back to visit. I'll make it a point to visit your blogs as well...
Wishing you a fantastic day!
