Thank you Mod Girl ( Mod Object At Home) for recognized me with this award for creativity and art today.
It was my intention when I started my blog to use it as a tool to help me become more technologically savvy and as a showcase for my artwork. I really haven't made any art since I began...just a lot of sketches and doodles. Everyone is very kind to say they like seeing them and I have had fun trying new things and meeting new people.
I would like to take this opportunity to recognize some truly artistic people whose blogs I review regularly. Unlike the community of bloggers we are building here, these people don't know me from the next person in the cyber-community. But I am thankful that they continue to put their ideas and artwork out there for people like me to browse, enjoy and draw inspiration from.
But first, inside our smaller cyber-community I would like to recognize Denise from Look Beyond The Picket Fence for her continuing creativity. I love her work with decoupage and her paper creations. Please check out her pretty blog and give her big round of applause.
