After 48 posts in 2011, it looks like I succeeded! I've painted, zentangled, beaded, fused, manipulated glass with fire, created sculpture, stamped, hot glued, monoprinted and crafted my way through the year. I think that having the blog was a definite impetus to get off my butt and do something; to reach out and stretch my imagination a little more.
Many thanks to the 1780+ readers who read my posts this year, from 9 different countries: Canada, Alaska, across Europe, Malaysia and Japan. Whether you've "facebooked" me, got me on an RSS feed or found the blog on a search engine, you've really spurred me on!
The scariest thing I did in 2011: Made a glass paper weight by manipulating a flaming, red ball of hot glass on a stick!
The biggest surprise in 2011: Realizing I had the patience to sit long enough to do detail-oriented zentangling.
My favorite art of 2011: My little 4X4 paintings for the holiday boutique; I did one a day for two weeks.
Wierdest thing I tried in 2011: It's a tie between nailing chicken wire on one of my paintings and making earrings from cut-up plastic gift and credit cards.
Most visited post: doodling of rocks with Sharpey markers!
Please join me in making 2012 a wonderful year artistically, hoping all of us will stretch our creative horizons more than ever before. Happy New Year, and much love to you all.
