I've been tagged by Karen at ascrapbookofinspiration. Karen has the most beautiful blog, so be sure to take some time and visit her!
When I first started blogging I knew very little about it. I started out hoping to sell some of my art and to get some exposure, and now I'm finding that some days I would rather visit all the wonderful people from far and near that I've met instead of painting.
I have found so much inspiration in many of your blogs, not only in a creative sense, but in a spiritual way. I will find just the right words or verses or quotes or songs on your blogs that really speak to me, and it's just what I need to hear that day or that moment.
I like blogging because it lets me be creative, using photos, colors, art and stories. It's like keeping a journal with all of your special treasures inside.
I have met so many friends, I never would have imagined!
I like the comments I get from each one of you and look forward to them every day. They encourage me to do more.
Last but not least, blogging is fun and it's usually the first thing I do in the morning with my cup of coffee in hand, and the last thing I do at night, popping my head into a few new places, before going to bed.
So consider yourself tagged if you've read this and have fun playing along!
