Yesterday I had the welcomed surprise of receiving a heartfelt best blog award from Marsha at Tumblefish Studio. Thank you Marsha. Gestures like this mean a lot to me as making art and corresponding with other artists through this milieu has been a big part of my life and joy over the past four years since leaving my hometown and my career. I have felt so blessed by the number of friendships that I've developed and my hope is with each passing year I have the opportunity to meet more and more of you in person. Those who touch my heart with your words and your creative visual expressions. You add a delightful dimension to the quality of my life each day. I would like to acknowledge the following blogs by passing on this award. I find each one of these blogs inspiring visually and also inspiring in spirit. I invite you to visit them and encourage you to leave them a comment:The Artist Within Us - Egmont Pringle Hill Studio - Terri Pixels and Paste - Terri The Last Door Down the Hall - Elizabeth Alicia Tormey - Alicia To those of you listed above. The original rules dictate listing 15 other blogs, but more important than numbers is the heartfelt wish that comes with the award. Thank you for being you!
