I have some exciting news that I have been looking forward to sharing with you! I was a little hesitant to share it with anyone at first, I didn’t want to jinx it, but here it is in all of its glory. Ta da!
Thats right! I have been featured in the summer issue of Stampingtons Artful Blogging magazine. It is a publication I have been admiring for some time now and am thrilled to be a part of it!
It is a little hard to come by in my neck of the woods, which makes it very special when I do get my hands on a copy. I have many a Stampington publication all lined up nicely under my coffee table. Their magazines cover many topics – art jornaling, photography, jewellery and lots of other topics all to do with handcrafted goodness. They do a wonderful job offering inspiration to artists everywhere.
I would love to share the entire issue with you! This is just a little sneak peek.
There is something quite wonderful about seeing your creative journey in print. I have been blogging now for almost 3 years and they did a wonderful job of pulling together pictures that capture the essence of what my blog is all about ~ the creative process, all the different medium used to tell your story , and the never ending work in progress.
Along with my excitement and happiness, I have to admit to a feeling of nostalgia . I couldn’t help but spent some time going back and re-discovering old blog posts, laughing at my first attempts at art and remembering the butterflies the very first time I posted pictures of my art.Oh, the many paths I have followed to where I am now! It covers all the courses I have taken and most important the community I have surrounded myself with.
Way back in July of 2011, I remember thinking to myself “what are you up to?” I really didn’t know at that time, but I had a faint idea of where all of this was supposed to lead.
I wanted to meet a group of like-minded creative souls (check). I wanted to become an artist (check). I wanted to document my journey to gauge my accomplishments…and failures (check). I wanted to make a living as an artist (half-check) There is still lots to be accomplished!
Thank you very much Stampington & Company! I am honoured. Thank you for my moment!
To everyone here ~ Thanks for being part of the journey!
