Yes, the year of the Rat is coming soon and it is time to be creative in a mousy way. So, do not forget to participate in my great YEAR OF THE RAT ART EVENT on FEBRUARY 7 2008! Just have fun and use what you want, paper, glue, paint, glitters, recycled stuff, canvas, photography and anything else that tickles your wiskers. I announced this event in December on my blog and did not get as many responses as I was hoping. So, I will bait you with a cheeseless trap to have you wiggle your tail and get you started. I invite you to post a picture of your Year of the Rat creation, be it Mickey Mouse, Three Blind Mice, Rat Fink or anything else of the kind on my blog on FEBRUARY 7 2008. The day after I will put each participant's name on a piece of paper, put the names in a jar and draw one name to be announced as the winner of this swell YEAR OF THE RAT ART EVENT CONTEST. The prize will be a YEAR OF THE RAT SURPRISE BAG created and assembled by moi, your truly, LuLu. No more details... If you want the Surprise Bag you MUST participate by showing off your talents, creativity, humor, artistic sense, great imagination, amazing craftsmanship and maybe unknown skills on this rodent subject. Need more info, just contact me on my blog.
