I've been thinking. Some would say that's dangerous, but I did it anyway. I was thinking about my art and how many people I know on the internet that nobody knows about at home. My family knows that I participate in groups but they don't know names or interests or who goes with what art project I'm on. They know I have fun with the art and that it's important to me (hence the art room they take over all the time!) but they don't know that I admire Heather's constant stretching of her boundaries or Sharonb is an amazing stitcher and doesn't even know that I read her on a regular basis. I read so many different blogs that inspire me and keep me motivated! I love the yahoo groups that I'm involved in - and love the contact I have with these fellow artists. The family isn't aware of the names of the people that are involved in my beaded art doll group that has been going for too long but with any luck and a lot of positive pressure, will be finished before too long.
I've been reading about inchies and white books and samplers and charms! They aren't aware that I'm the proud owner of some amazing artwork from people all over the world and that hopefully some people are happy with what I've sent on too.

To all the people who I owe work to, I haven't forgotten. I am working on them and I am getting to it all so please have faith. I am doing more school work than I have done to date - 3 classes, 3 kids, 3 pets - 3 a good number! So please be patient and thanks for that!

Cheers, Denise

My mother and sister call you all "those people on the computer". It would take someone else who had developed relationships over the internet to understand. How could "those people" could be so real to each other, important friends, and big influences? When you stop to think about it, we're all influenced by anything that touches our brains, both positively and negatively.

I'm glad that you all are such a positive influence on me and my art!
