Happy New Year 2021 !!!!!! It’s done – 50 blog posts during 2020 – never had that as a goal, but as the pandemic worsened – reaching out weekly to share”something” was a life-saver to me.
For me, the purpose of having a blog is to invite people into your world, offer something unique and to nurture a deeper connection to you and your artwork. Do have a favorite blog? If you were to share one thing about that blog, what would it be? Witty, intelligent, informative, thought provoking or maybe it’s just a break in your daily routine. Feel free to email your thoughts to me email@example.com. Thanks for reading. Now it is time for a break, and maybe go back to a monthly post . . . but who knows!
If you missed BLOG POST #49 here is the link: Posted on December 28, 2020 Catherine Whall Smith – admires snow falling down, how about YOU!
NOTE: Where my fiber art will be shown in 2021. I am always hopeful.
