Happy Birthday Blog!
a pretty old box of paints i was given years ago ... and just had to keep.
Today is the blog's birthday! It has been a wonderful year, with so many meaningful friendships emerging and meeting a few fellow bloggers in person. My original goal, to be journaling and improving my writing on a daily basis - through practice, came from watching my daughter Grace write (by hand) in her journal for 12 years, daily. I thought it would be good to take a stab at it and explore the idea by including bits and pieces of our life in the gallery, a dash of personal, (but not too personal), and the launch of our ideas and online shop.
To say the least it has been a wonderful experience. I've learned a lot, met some of the nicest people and many talented artists from around the globe. It has opened a lot of new doors for our gallery and design studios and has set our mind free to explore the world from a new perspective. Thank you all, each and every one for sharing your experiences with me too!
Watch this space for some birthday treats and the announcement of our international call for entries exhibition ... (yes, that is part of the surprise... just a hint)
p.s. New items in the shop this morning too! - collages by Corey Amaro, Lily Devine handbags!
