This lovely card is a representation of what I am grateful for.
It was colored and created by my very talented friend and Design Team member, Marnie Schagunn, using my stamp image.
I have a real live, bonafide “Design Team” of lovely talented coloring and cardmaking ladies who are in the process of making my images look good, my images are being turned into rubber stamps by a small UK stamp company and have been shown on tv not only once, but will be twice in less than two months, my book is being published and coming out in print soon (so excited!), I’ve met so many wonderful people in these new endeavors who have shown me so much patience, support and help, and I have a loving caring supportive husband who puts up with all of my shenanigans and three great hilarious kids, health (more or less, depends on what day of the week it is and if all the stars, moons and planets line up right), and faithful friends who put up with me and hang in there, whether I deserve it or not.
I’m counting my blessings!
I’m not making much money (barely covering the Etsy shop fees, but, hey, that counts!) but I get to be a real live working artist and book author!
And, my art and coloring skills are actually getting better, slowly, but anything is an improvement! How much better does it get?
(Btw, please forgive me me if I sound like I’m bragging. I’m honestly not. I’m just very sincerely appreciative of these wonderful opportunities and all the dear people that are in my life.)
