My First Post
OK so here it goes...My first blog post. First and MOST important THANK YOU all for such wonderful comments. I see the wonderful things that people like Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi, and of course Linda Ledbetter do and that is who I think of as TRUE artists. I have never considered myself an "artist" because of a lack of self confidence and a lack of understanding the meaning of the word "artist". I was fortunate enough to go on a cruise with Tim Holtz last year, that is where I met Linda.
For those of you who have not had the awesome pleasure of meeting her in person, she is genuinely kind, sweet, and humble. I am not sure their is a mean bone in her body. She has created a forum on her blog for EVERYONE to share their art. I have learned over the past couple of weeks that being an "artists" is not always about having your name published in magazines, or how many design teams your on, or even if other people like your projects. Being an "artist" is about how you feel when you are creating, how you like your projects, and maybe just maybe inspiring someone else to come out of their shell and become an "artists".
So, even though I may not have the best writing skills or the best projects, I have been inspired by Linda and all of your kind words to give the blog thing a try. I know not everyone will think my projects or my blog or my post are the greatest but that is fine because as the old saying goes "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and "art" is beauty to someone.
I just wanted to say thank you to Linda for creating a safe environment for all of us to create and share art!! Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!
