I'm in Deep...

This has to be the BEST issue yet of  Artful Blogging published by Stampington & Company.  I've read each word, examined every picture and visited every blog so far. I've even left comments on several blogs to let them know that I enjoyed reading about them. Some of which I already follow and others I just had to add to my list! How exciting to be published in one of the greatest magazines out there.

And as for Where Women Create, I'll be honest...I just thumbed through the pictures for now. I'm going to save the actual reading for a rainy day...the studios are simply gorgeous!

And as I was sitting here flipping between the magazines and the computer, I came up with this phrase that I feel combined all of my feelings about blogging into one short sentence:

LIFE is a novel ~ i am the author of the ART i create...

I inserted it under my blog banner as a daily reminder that without life, there is no story and without art, there is no life.

Life and Art ~ they do indeed revolve around each other.

Hi, I just found you and LOVE your blog. I LOVE the way you write those funny entries and the pics are so gorgeous, I HAD to become a follower and put you on my blog roll :)
Please come by mine for a visit whenever you have the time.

Hugs from a very sunny the Netherlands,

Life is a highway----I want to ride it all day long....I love how you were inspired by our favorite magazines---I am going to have to start getting them in the mail---you have them so early. Pardon me I think I am on my way to the Netherlands now.

Hi,
I'm glad you found me through Marian's blog :-) Thanks for the comments on mine.

Your blog is wonderful and I know that I'm going to enjoy following it. "Everything vintage" often describes my thoughts on life. :)

Blessings to you on this Sunday,
Linda

Thanks Jodie for stopping in. Do you really think Someone would do that? I never leave my fur babies out with full run of the yard, I have a run for them.
I like the new Artful Blogger also. As for the beautiful piece in the post below....lovely!

Thank you for the alert that these mags are out. I'm going to have to subscribe because I only go to big town once a week, so I have to see what's new then.I love them and look at them over and over. I love the banner you made Pam in your previous post. So cool. Hugs from here,June
Thanks for coming to see me. I surely do love it .

Hey doll, nice to meetcha! We have no classses together at Silver Bella but I am sure we can cross paths. So, I am freaking out, did I miss the new Where Women Create with Osmond?? I don't even see it on the website. Ha! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog! Regards, Robin

Oh man, I am surrounded by talented people...I keep hoping it will rub off! I spotted your new byline as soon as I clicked on and loved it! Now I won't be happy until I have something clever to say!

Dear Mrs. Trash Talk...

EVERYTHING you say is clever honey!

Patti's Artful Design said...

Oh, I'm a "quote" girl, and I love your quotes....so true.

Jeanneoli said...

I am so jealous that you have these magazines already. I didn't think they came out until May. I really need to subscribe instead of heading to Barnes and Noble like a mad woman!

The Victorian Parlor said...

Love the quote! I have yet to find a copy of Artful Blogging on the newsstand so I will probably have to order it online but it seems like it's a good magazine (and I am a magazine addict:).

Stephanie O. said...

I have just got to follow your advice and start pre-ordering Somerset magazines. I never know when a new one is out and then they are impossible to find in our bookstores. Although Lisa is starting to carry some of the issues @ her store..Thank goodness. Hope you are having a good week. Oh, almost forgot to tell ya that I love the banner you made for Pam's birthday.

KayEllen said...
