A Day of Thanks

April 08, 2011

Over the past several weeks I have been receiving some amazing shout outs for my business and my blog and I am so thankful for all the kind words that everyone has said that I wanted to say a special thank you and provide links to the sites where I have been highlighted recently. So, first of all THANK YOU to everyone that has been supporting my work. Your kindness and generosity has overwhelmed me (in a very happy way) and I appreciate all of it so so much.

First, I was highlighted by Marisa on Creative Thursday along with 14 other artists that are part of the Creative Coconuts group that has formed as a little island of creativity on the internet. I have been following Creative Thursday and Marisa for the last year, so to receive this shout out from her makes me feel very validated and appreciated as an artist, designer and photographer–so thank you Marisa, I feel proud to be part of such an incredible group of creatives…..

Second, the same week I was highlighted along with this same group of artists on Stacies Jewelry. So, thank you Stacie for being such a great support of our group and of me and my business. I truly appreciate your friendship…..

Third, Stephey of Marked by the Muse has given an outpouring of support on her twitter account for Blogging for Lila over the last several weeks–so thank you Stephey for all the wonderful shout outs, they have not gone unnoticed.

Fourth, I have been asked to assist with some creative art questions for my friend Liz Kalloch that I mention each month on the Meet Up posts. Liz has been writing some incredible posts on art, creativity and life as an artist for Scoutie Girl and she has asked many of her creative connections to be a part of those posts. Thanks Liz for asking me and I look forward to helping any way I can….

Fifth, this month I took a leap and sent my shop to papernstitch to see if I could exhibit for the month and Brittni accepted….So for the month of April redlinedesign® is being featured along with about 88 other artists in an online exhibit and sale. Thank you so much Brittni, I am happy to be a part of such an incredible mix of artists. Please stop over an see the exhibit and Brittni’s blog both will open up a whole new world of art for you.

Finally–Blogging for Lila–what an incredible week of blog posts and an outpouring of support from everyone that is participating. If you have not checked out the posts, I encourage you to do so, they are all thoughtful, well written and so full of love for Lila that I cry each time I read them. Next week, we will be hearing from the following people:

allison – Thoughtful Creations

Denice: inkstitch

stacie- stacies jewelry

Two spots are still available on Tuesday and Wednesday if you would like to participate. Just fill out your name in the calendar link at the top of the blog……

I will be traveling next week so look for a few sneak peek photos from my travels…Thanks so much to everyone again and have a great weekend….
