I wanted to share that I have a little 'bout me in the new issue of Artful Blogging by Stampington on newstands for the summer months. If you are here after reading the article, Welcome. If you are here because you come to read on a regular basis, welcome back and thank you. I mean, really...thank you...thank you all for comments, emails, messages..okay even for the criticism..I take it all into consideration and use it to keep on bloggin...and creating.
Again, if you are here for the first time, again, glad you are here and I hope that you keep coming back. I do want to explain that sometime my blog is like a pinball machine because it goes from one thing to another to another....
sometimes I am stitching the next moment I am doing something more mixed media Other times I am dabbling into paint or mixing fabric and paint well, and sewing or washing, chopping and cooking well, and doodling.... Simply put, I love to make things and not just one thing...all things. I have been arm wrestling with myself for a long time on ONLY doing one thing, when really, if I want, I can do all things. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean I can do everything..BUT I am working with the ebb and flow on creating whatever I am inspired to create from paper, fabric, paint, ink and so on and so on.
In the Artful Blogging article, there is a little shot of this doodle:
I love it not only because of what it says, but also because I did it one early beautiful humid morning as I sat on a lounge chair in Maui with my mom and dad, waiting for the rest of my family to wake up and join us at the pool for the day. (hey if you want the good seats, ya gotta get up early!)
THAT is why I blog, why I create and why I share.
It is my Purpose....To remind & inspire you (and myself) that it is not just about making or creating something, but more about what it is, who you might have done it with and the meaning behind it.
Thanks again for being here!
