Blog about a blog!

So the new issue of Artful Blogging magazine is in stores now. Or SOME stores I should say, because it seems as though my local Barnes&Noble, has problems actually putting the magazines on shelves, the date they are supposed to be out. One more than one occasion, I have asked them to look in the stockroom, (a week past the issue date) only to find the box has been sitting there, unopened, for who knows how long.



So anyway, I will be checking again today.  This is the first article I have written, that has a personal element to it.  The others have been all technique, so this one is special.  It talks of struggle, of heartbreak, of acceptance and connection.  All surrounded by some of my favorite artwork.

Hi Carrie,
My name is Carrie! I just read your article and had to come find you. I loved it! It gives me hope. Blogging is a way for me to be myself and to also connect. It is so easy to feel so small and alone in this big world we live in. Art is definitely my way of expressing myself and I don't know what I would do without it. Thankyou for your honesty and heartfelt words. I appreciate it. Take care I will be back! Xxoo

Carrie, I was very touched by your article in Artful Blogging and your vulnerability that you shared along with your art. I especially loved the first piece about the Holy Spirit and the one with the songbird . . . blessing her nest and beyond. Good for you for being authentic and for getting back up again. Love & grace, jodi shaw
