I think one of the nicest things about having a blog is visiting all the other fabulously creative people in our world.  It is not the same as Facebook or seems there is so much more creativity displayed.

I have indicated before that I really am a beginning fact I have a hard time calling myself one.....but this year I think I am going to stretch my wings a bit and try to really  become one.

with all the encouragement and inspiration that is given by fellow bloggers one should be able to really evolve in one's chosen medium

I'm not really sure  which avenue I will chose for my expressive self.......although blogging is certainly one of them.............but I'm certain to find the right one if I continue to experiment and stretch those artistic wings!!

Have a wonderful day dear friends ........hello from Kansas!!



  1. I agree about blogging. And if your picture is any example of you being an artist, you are well on your way my friend:)

  9. Hooray for you and your decision to spread your wings, in creativity.

    I used to do more little bits of such... Just some sewing and art. But haven't in a long time though.

    But who knows? Perhaps? Sometime?

  13. what a lovely blog you have, so many lovely photos. I hope you have a lot of fun on your creative journey.x

  14. Thank you for stopping by. Keep practicing, you're doing great. I do not think there is any magic formula that needs to happen before declaring oneself to be an artist. I know what you mean though in what you are saying.

  15. Don't be afraid to call yourself an artist, Jo, because that is exactly what you are. Your sketch-book page is a beautiful example of this.


Your comments enrich my soul. I love hearing from you.
