Who Knew...

  • That I would be able to set up a blog all by myself?
  • That I would still be blogging after TWO YEARS?
  • That I would find such a great community of fabulous people who were also blogging?
  • That I would so enjoy sharing the process of my art and my writing?
I had no idea what I was getting into on November 17, 2008.  But I know now!

My world has expanded, and my life has been enriched in many ways. Thanks to all of you for the advice, companionship and the great blogs that you write.

 (What did I do before I was a blogger?)

wow, I could have wrote this post!
Three cheers for blogging! It totally keeps me sane ( well, almost!)

I feel much the same, Elizabeth. I think this blogosphere has helped to expand my parameters as an artist in ways I never would have imagined. It's nice to have a community of artists with which to share and I'm glad we're both a part of that community.

Hi, Celeste! I'm so glad to have found your blog. You are a great model of the artist who works daily at her craft, getting better and better all the time.

I've so enjoyed "watching" you paint and mother these two years, Maria. It has been a privilege.

Martine Alison: I, too, value the way artists in blogland share with each other. It makes us all richer by combining the community's resources. Your blog is full of the color and joy of life, and I love to visit it.

I remember the day you started your blog...and your little-bit of doubt of whether or not you could do it....and look how far it has come:-)

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Yep, you and Elizabeth and Dan had a lot to do with my confidence that I could do this thing! Thanks for that and for the inspiration of your lovely work.
