oh, what a year it has been! one year ago starting a blog was the last thing from my mind. at the time i was going through an intense creative burst after a long spell away from my art. after a few months of of insomnia and manic art-ing, i finally started the blog to contain and organize the chaos. something snapped into place after that. the structure of a blog was just the discipline i needed. it has brought art back to my life on a daily basis, something i dreamed about but hadn't been able to do in a meaningful way until now. i'm not sure it would have happened without the blog and the inspiration i've found in the worlds of other creatives online. i'm very grateful for the support and encouragement i've received from all of you.
i'll sign off for the year with a marvelous piece of news: i found out last week that artsyville will be featured in the summer 2009 issue of Artful Blogging! i am beyond thrilled about this and will share updates/info about it as the magazine gets closer to the publication date. and now, i'm taking the girls to IHOP for a big stack of chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream. time to close out 2008 and dream about what will be coming our way and yours for 2009. things are peeking around the corner for everyone and i'm curious to find out what they are. happy new year :)
