Thank You, Mere

A very special thank you to the wonderful artist Victorian Lady for bestowing on me a lovely art award. It comes at a particularly opportune time, as my ebay sales have been flat and that always translates into self-doubt. The comments that I receive here, and something like this sweet award, are the things that keep me going and I feel so very blessed to be part of a community of supportive artists.

So here is what the award is about:

"This prize has arisen from the daily visits that I dedicate to many blogs which nourish me and enrich me with creativity. In them I see dedication, creativity, care, camaraderie, but mainly, ART, much art. I want to share this prize with all those bloggers who entertain and enrich me every day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few. The people I will name today deserve this prize, as do the very long list of bloggers I also enjoy to read. I will name the first four and will leave the rest of the work to all the bloggers who visit other's blogs and are nourished by them."

You SO deserve this!! :) I remember when I first found you, I was blown away! I don't know if you remember, but I emailed you before I started blogging looking for the collages you did on sewing, but they were already sold. I love the way you put everything together...your backgrounds are fantastic too! I keep looking at your listings...waiting for one about sewing...maybe with something about passing on the tradition. I'm teaching my 6 year old this weekend on her very own child sized black singer with gold swirls! How fun is that? It's such a valuable ability and I want her to have it, and to maybe think of me the way I think of my mom when I sew. :)

Okay, this comment is getting long, but I wanted to say your drawings are AMAZING! And I love your latest collage...marriage really is a take on that commitment to work on it everyday. Great job! :)
