Kreativ Blogger Award – Paying it Forward

I was nominated by Tara Reed!
Totally unexpected and quite a sweet surprise. It was a busy week and I didn’t even find out about it till preparing for the “Ask Mary Englebreit” on the 17th. That was a great call on Art Licensing! I hope to write more on that in a few days.

I met Tara Reed through Twitter, just as she met the person who gave her the award. Twitter has been a great tool for me to meet other artists in every phase of their careers. I love being able to use social media to cultivate a larger worldly community of  artists and creative people of all types!

I am absoloutely humbled to be on her list of nominees. She has been immensely inspiring to me. Not simply because she is so successful in both Art Licensing and teaching others about it; but also her journey and dedication to her career as a single mother and her open and generous nature. To me she embodies the quote below, that kind of generous sincerity is the trait I admire most in others.

” Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”- Buddha

Seven things about me that may be of interest:

1. I can’t do art with out the presence of chocolate and coffee.
2. I spent a few years of my childhood on Guam- a wee little chunk of island in the Pacific Ocean.
3. I like bugs and my children often bring me numerous specimens in the summer. Unfortunately, they aren’t always dead- yet.
4. I believe every day has something about it that is worth celebrating.
5. I love to get muddy – in a garden.
