A few days ago I was completely floored to have received an amazing award from these talented, wonderfully supportive people: Cheryl Lynn at dreamoutlouddesignstudio; Ako at artfanako; and Brigitte at atelierbrigitte ! Thank you, thank you, thank you, you lovely ladies, for your kindness and sisterhood.
This award is named after an amazingly talented children's book illustrator, and artist, Bella Sinclair. I recently stumbled upon her blog, as well as Ces's blog and came to discover these amazing people who share so much about themselves and inspire all who come to visit. Truly, they are blessed with the gift of words and art, but most generously their gift for sharing and caring for others in a refreshingly bold, sometimes-sassy and fun sister-like fashion. Please do visit their blogs if you have not already. And I too, am sending my thoughts and well-wishes to Ms. Sinclair and her children during this time of sadness (as they have suffered a great loss this year with the death of her husband and their father).
Below, you'll find some of the most wonderful artists who have encouraged and supported me through their visits to this blog - and so I thank them and pass this award along. Some of them already have this award , but I wanted them to know that their words mean so much to me, too.:
I wanted to end this post with this thought:
One of life's lessons that I truly believe in, and try to live by each day, is to enjoy the journey..for it's on the path that we make discoveries and learn about ourselves. The path twists and turns and may grow dark in parts, but this blog is a brightly lit path that I eagerly walk on each day. I get to join amazingly creative people, see inspired pieces of work, brilliantly crafted works of art, and beautifully written passages. And so I thank you for joining me on my path...you are all like fireflies lighting the night sky!
