Have you ever noticed how wonderfully supportive our not-so-lil art community is? Really, think about it…it’s not often a large diverse group – made up mostly of women – can get together and selflessly support one another. Yet, somehow we do this, and do it well….day in & day out.
We rally around those in need, those who are sick, those who are grieving, those who are just struggling to make it day to day.
We laugh at one another’s mishaps, airhead moments, and stories. We are human, and find the humor in it.
We share who we are, not just as artists but as people.
Despite our personal taste, we have a way of recognizing and appreciating any art form, finding the beauty in anything.
We share our knowledge, our talents, our gifts — we share ourselves… and we give. We give to one another, to those in need, we give what we can, when we can.
It never ceases to amaze me, how we connect through our art, through our blogs, through our groups.. it is a never ending cycle, that I am grateful for daily. I don’t think y’all realize, just how much you have changed my life, or the power one small supportive comment or note has to me. I dont’ take the time to thank you all nearly as often as i should, but I am eternally grateful.
What’s all that got to do with anything?
It has been a very frustrating few weeks for me recently, the surgery I had in February, was not successful…. basically, making it all for nothing …and leaving me pretty discouraged. Fortunately, I my to-do-book is so large, I have been able to keep my mind off of it & the never ending kindness that is shown to me through all of you, has helped me muster through as well.
Last year, I was horrid at blogging all i wanted to … this year, I intend to change that. I want to show off the gifts I receive, the RAK’s (Random Acts of Kindness), and truly acknowledge the generosity others have shown to me.
Guilt Free Sugar Cookies anyone?
“A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand”
At the ZNE Tea Party, I had shown these adorable felt sugar cookies that I instantly adored, and when Sue Wickham (Please visit her!) offered to make me a few, I was brimming with excitement! Little did I know, she would send me a whopping dozen, and they would be better then I could ever imagine! — here, look for yourself! Yummy eh?
Jealous? You should be, these are divine!
I’m looking for the perfect way to display these, your ideas?
