  1. Oh, what an INCREDIBLE giveaway! You are my favorite artist, by far. I love everything that you do (and I have had my eye on that alphabet print ever since you first blogged about it).

    I will do my best to spread the word about the giveaway (but mostly about you and your art!) so that more people find out about you. Merry Christmas, Jessica!

  2. This bundle giveaway is sooooo beautiful and worth so much more than $$!
    Love your work and congratulations on your success!

    I am thankful this year for the internet and having access at work. Without it, I would not have came across your beautiful work, or have been twitter like I am to follow you and your blog. As well as all the other wonderful and talented artist out there!

    Wishing you 100x more success in 2010 and that you get all you wish for from your wishlist. 😉

  3. Wow Jessica! This is a great giveaway! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win. Also, thank you for all the information and tips you have provided this year. You have helped me a lot and I am very grateful!

  4. So many things to be thankful for this year I’ll have to just narrow it down to 2. My amazing wife and son (and son #2 on the way) are definitely at the top of list. Secondly is the fantastic opportunity that I’ve had this year to finish up my wage slave job and start my photography business.

    Off to tweet this as well.

  5. I am very thankful for living in Canada. For the ability to live (mostly) as I choose and to be free to read and share as I wish.

    Thank you for the opportunity to own a little piece of your work. I have the Star of the East business card prominently displayed because of the star fish and the the perfect colour background. I love your calender and would love to give it to my mother for her office. She works with single parents to help and inspire them, and I think your calender would help her feel inspirational!

    Merry Christmas Jessica.

  6. Thanks for having this giveaway.

    I am thankful to be here!
    I had a horrible health year and because Dr.’s were persistent in seeking the cause, they found cancer in early stages that was not showing up on scans.
    I had successful surgery Dec 2 and I am HERE! to enjoy the holiday with my family and I am well on the road to recovery!


  7. I subscribed just now to your RSS Feed. Although you have to know that you are on my Good Morning Bookmark. I open your blog first thing every morning!

  8. This year I am grateful for my beautiful new grandson, a wonderful new man in my life who I am marrying in April, fabulous friends who put up with my madness and the chance to take my art seriously at last and enjoy that of my on-line friends.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!!

  9. Your work is gorgeous. I’m thankful for the fact that my family is back together and we are all really happy and excited to see 2010 come.

  10. It’s interesting that you should ask this question, as it was one recently asked by a friend of mine, who is sadly dying and possibly wont live to see Christmas, but..he is hopeful.

    Anyway, in his blog when he announced that he would not be around for much longer he too asked this question of all who read, and asked they leave their comments, I thought for quite a while and my answer was simple.

    I am thankful I have a husband and daughter who love me, a roof over my head, food in the cuboard, and the security, safety and kindness denied to so many and yet should be the right of all.

    That’s it.

    Merry Christmas my lovely girl to you and yours

  11. I am so very thankful that after 20 years of living in different places and experiencing so many wild and wonderful things the Belmont st girls are still friends!!
    I love your art and my fingers are crossed!!!
    Merry Christmas!!

  12. I am thankful for my family, our dogs, our health, our jobs, our home, books of all kinds and for all of the beautiful artwork and inspiration provided by artists such as yourself. Thank you!

  13. I’m thankful for having a great job that gives me enough security and time to focus on things that really mean something to me — like family and my art.

  14. Thanks for the great giveaway. I am thankful for being healthy and having a nice roof over my head and pleanty of good food to eat.

  15. Me, I am thankful for so much- especially for my 2 healthy and amazingly funny kids, my husband who works so hard, the fact that I get to stay home w/ my kids, that my Mom- sister- nieces and nephew are happy/healthy/safe (even though they live 12 hours away!), that I have food in my pantry and hot water running from my taps, good friends all over the world, the quiet of nap time, Christmas music, my Ugg boots, that I live in a country where I can speak my mind, and oh, so much more!
    Merry Christmas, Jodie

  16. What am I thankful for? I am thankful for mended relationships. I have been able to start rebuilding from the ground up with my sister, my husband, and one of my best friends.

  17. I’m thankful for family, love, art and the possibilites each of them give us by inspiring our lives. I’m also thankful for wonderful sites such as yours, that allow us to share an insight into your creative life and create a community of friends who find a common interest through your work.
    Merry Christmas!!
    and keep up the good work

  18. I am truly thankful for the wonderful boyfriend and best friend that I have. I fall in love with him more and more each day. I live an artist’s life of traveling for shows, and live a very sporatic life. He comes to every show with me, and is my biggest support!

    Great work Jessica! I hope you had a great year!

  19. Okay, I’ve tweeted (well, re-tweeted your own tweet) about the giveaway now, too! And since I neglected to mention my thankfulness in my first entry, I shall say now that I am thankful for my incredible husband, my child-to-be, my family and my artwork!

  20. I am thankful for discovering my hearts calling after feeling very lost on the career ladder, that what I need to do is follow a creative path and become a true artist. Dancing on the Page was born.

  21. I’m so very thankful for my family. Thank you for the lovely giveaway, the designs are quite eye catching.

  22. I am thankful for a happy functioning family. Its taken us awhile but we are there! Also very thankful for my amazing man and his family, plus our kitty cats.

  23. Oh man, I am thankful for so much this year. It’s been tough at times, but I’m thankful to have made it through stronger than ever. I’m so thankful to be doing what I love, living where I live, and have a wonderful husband and lots of adorable fur babies. Karin

  24. I am thankful for my best friend who is so supportive of me especially in my last year of University!

  25. I am looking forward to spending time with my family this holiday. My grandparents are in their 80’s and i am thankful everyday for having them in my life!!

  26. What an amazing shop you have!
    I am thankful that we all survived another year, everyone is healthy, happy, and content with their lives.

  27. What an amazing and generous giveaway!
    This year I am thankful for all the new opportunities my family and I have had in our lives. We’ve started lots of new activities and ventures and gained lots of new friends and acquantainces too in the process.

  28. This year I am especially thankful to my parents. They know I am a poor student and although I’m already 22 years old, they still support me in various ways for example lending their car. That’s not obvious to me :)
    Also I am extremely thankful to God for my spiritual growing up.

  29. In a year of personal ill health and widespread financial difficulty, I am thankful we have found each other and the creativity inherent in all of us. From discovering this blog, to attending the Tweed Olympics on bicycle in San Francisco (with the famous crustless sandwich toss), to dragging friends on photo walks to get lost in the beauty of a leaf; I have concluded I am rich no matter what! It is true that there is pain in downsizing, whether in expectations of what we can do physically or what we can afford. But it turns out to be more engaging to look beyond what had been experienced anyway, than to sit around and mourn what can no longer be had. This year more than ever, I am thankful for the boundless enjoyment in community.

  30. I am thankful for my son and with a lot of health problems in the family this year, I am glad we are all still here.

  31. I am thankful for my family this year. In light of all the tough economic situations, it’s good to realize how thankful I am just to be with my family this year, even if there aren’t that many presents to pass out. It helps me focus on what is truly important!

  32. I tweeted… you have a lovely style of work Jessica! I am thankful for my family and friends and how they have impacted my life.

  33. I am thankful for my dear husband of 46 years, and for my children and grandchildren, those here and those who we won’t see this Christmas. We can stay connected in spite of the miles between. And I am thankful that my Texas weather is so mild compared to blizzards where some of my kids are.

  34. I’m thankful for my freedom after years of military service! There’s nothing like being able to stay in bed in the mornings and relaxing :o)

  35. I’m so thankful for my friends and family this time of year. The holiday season is such a wonderful time. Great blog. Beautiful art. I found it through Adam Graham.

  36. I am soooo thankful for my family. My mom, Lourdes, for being the strongest woman I’ve ever known. My sister, Karla, for working so hard for the family. My brother, William, for being the best brother I could’ve ever had. And my baby sister, Karin, for being the way better version of me. <3
