My favorite chubby caroler ornament on our tree this year. :)
I was watching the news the other night and the very serious and disapproving news anchor was lamenting about how people are so tied into the internet and all the toys that come along with keeping us connected. He clucked his tongue and shook his head and did quite a fabulous job getting the point across that he felt the internet is simply the most horrible thing in the world.
I just smiled.
I smiled because he didn't understand.
Without the internet, I wouldn't know so many wonderful artists. Many of you I've never met in person but feel as if we are friends because we "talk" all the time. And the internet has brought me face to face with people I most likely would not have crossed paths with otherwise.
Its given me the opportunity to talk with you about art. And to teach. A passion I have that is possible to share with online classes. I get to write and not feel like some weirdo talking to myself. (Well, I do that too but I don't feel as weird.) I share blogging, photos, surface design, happiness, sadness - all the things that make up life.
So as the year winds down and I turn my sights toward the new year and all the art that I want to make for you and with you, I just want to take this moment to say this:
T H A N K Y O U
My life and my art would be so much duller without all of you and of all the things art has brought into my world, the people are by far the most precious.
I wish you the very happiest of holidays and I can't wait to spend another year with you! Here's to 2013 and a very very artful year! :)
