So, one hears the direst remarks about the internet... how we are all secluded in our homes, caught up in a virtual world, blah, blah, blah. Well, I beg to differ and I image you, gentle reader, do also. I LOVE the internet and I think it is a marvelous way to connect. It is a real boon to artists like moi, who find a nurturing, supportive community on the web. Here's a great example... sweet Jessi http://scrappyjessi.blogspot.com/ is a delightful artist and fun blogger. She has purchased some items from my shop and I like to throw in some extra goodies with my orders. As a thank you she made me the fabulous mermaid ATC pictured above!! I adore it and even more I treasure this friendship brought to me by the wonderful internet! Thanks and hugs Jessi!! You rock!
And on another related note... The upcoming Paper Cowgirl Retreat (where I am priviledged to be teaching) is also a spawn of web connections. Some Texas altered art bloggers are pulling this sure to be fun and inspiring event together.
I love the web!
