Gallery: Women's Day & a Blog Award!

I wanted to share this 'first time my work has ever been in a gallery' photo with you all - yay! This was huge step for me and even though this wasn't a formally juried exhibit, not every submission made the cut for this show so I am honored that my humble, little piece was chosen to be shown amongst such beautiful work!! As I think I mentioned this exhibit was for International Women's Day (which is today March 8, 2009) with a follow-up conference here on March 23rd.

(edit: just to be clear, the only piece shown here that's mine is the cowgirl portrait, I wish I was accomplished enough to say the others are mine too - maybe someday!)

Also over the weekend I was delighted to find out that I was given an award from the lovely and talented Tracy of Altered Wonderland - thank you Tracy, I'm so very touched and honored!!

I now nominate 7 other Kreative Bloggers and pass this award along to them, all amazing & talented bloggers and online friends. I feel very fortunate that I've actually met 3 of them in person, *smile* [look for the stars]

It was hard for me to select just 7 for this award as there are so many other bloggers I wanted to give it to, but here are my picks:

1. Carla Kurt Anonyrrie
2. *Chrysti Hydeck Art by Chrysti
3. Jennifer White Wishful Thinking
4. Laurel Gaylord Studio Lolo
5. Regina rgrdesigns
6. *Susan Tuttle Ilka's Attic
7. *Vanessa Eccles Colorful Creations4u
