Happy Sixth (WHAT) Birthday, A Barefoot Gal! (ft. Favorite Posts, Fond Memories, and a Rather Yellow Giveaway)

A Barefoot Gal

It’s so satisfying, somehow, to make lengthy titles.

Anyway hi! How are you today?

Get ready, because today’s post is a very exciting one! 🙂 My blog is SIX years old as of Thursday, the 20th! My goodness that seems old.

But it also does seem like I’ve been blogging for a while (it’s getting closeish to half of my life!), and it has been so much fun! Just some quick stats for those of you who enjoy them… This is kind of an odd tradition, now that I think about it, but who am I to break it? XD

A Farm Girl's Life

Hello, dears!

I haven’t done a recent art post OR a giveaway for rather a while – I think it’s high time for both. 🙂 Today I’m going to show you guys some sketches, paintings, and LOTS of envelope art, and if you stick around to the end, there will be a fun little pen-pal/artsy giveaway which I’m so excited about!

Ahem, let’s get started.

First up we have my new sketchbook! I got a lovely brown paper journal at Walmart for, like $5, and I LOVE it. It lays flat and it’s perfect for drawing with black brush pens/markers.
