My first interview/feature and a big thank you to my fellow bloggers!

As I am writing this, I am still floating with excitement!  I wanted to share this when I first received the initial email from Rebecca Restrepo from, but wanted to wait until it materialized.  Didn't want to jinx anything!  Rebecca asked to feature my Halloween Banner, tutorial and interview on her site.  Well, it's published and I want to share with you.  Actually, it was published about a week ago, but we were on vacation in Nags Head, NC, so I didn't get much computer time.  I have to say, Rebecca is super sweet and I appreciate her asking me.  Please check out her blog, Thrifty Goodness.

Let me start from the beginning.  Before I began blogging, I stumbled upon the cutest artwork from an artist a lot of us know, Jenny Heid from Everyday Is A Holiday.  I instantly fell in love with her work.  Vintage inspired eye candy treats!  After ogling over all her goods on eBay, I saw she was a part of Flickr.   Flickr what?  I had no idea what that was.  When I logged on, I think I spent hours looking at all her work and I noticed she had a blog.  It was the first blog I had ever read.  I have to admit, it was intimidating to enter this realm, but I did and after reading though posts...I was hooked.  I quickly realized that on blogs, I can so easily connect with other artsy people who like the same things I do.  Share in their thoughts, work, tips, tutorials, ideas and it was a place where I could share mine at the same time. 

I've never been much of a romance novel type of girl.  I enjoy autobiographies and stories about real people.  I guess this is why blogs appeal to me as well.  It's about real people sharing their stories through art, poetry, stories and pictures.

Thank you for this opportunity to share my thoughts and for sharing yours!  I'm having a great time with this.  Please take a look at my first interview and coming up is a fantastic giveaway by vintage inspired jewelry designer, John Wind of Maximal Art.

Have a sweet day!
