Hello dear friends,
Tomorrow is my one year blog anniversary and I wanted to tell you all how grateful I am to have all of you as friends and followers of my blog. It is because of you that I have been here for one year.
The other day I was in Michaels and found a new journal (my new obsession!) This one will be my new gratitude journal. It reads, "wake and be thankful...See the good in every day" which is exactly how I feel every day I come to my blog.
As I look back on the last year of blogging here I am reminded of all of my creative highs and not so highs! :) But because I have had the support of my friends here on a daily basis, I am here on the eve of my first year of blogging.
The creative support and friendship I have found thru my blog, the opportunities that have come to me and the new direction I have found to take my art in has been immeasurable to me as an artist. I swore to myself I will "never give up" on my art until I have reached my idea of success. Some days my dreams are bigger than others, but still they are my creative dreams!
In the last year I have recieved opportunities to write articles for online magazines, have my artwork licensed, and design work that I love. I have also found a new life for my art and creativity designing rubber stamps and I know the next year will be even better for me and of course for all of you who have been with me thru it all.
I cant even begin to tell you how special you make me feel with your beautiful comments every time I post. It has given me motivation and strength that is priceless to any artist. You have given me even more reason to be grateful that I am an artist.
Thank you all for being such lovely friends. I appreciate all of you so much. You have all helped save my creative life!
