Thank you all…

This is another one of my Paper Source papers, as you may remember I’m not particularly fond of blue but I do like this book, the blue and the purple combine really well. It’s a very ‘rich’ looking book and I have filled it with beautiful watercolour paper, which I think it deserves. I’m had an idea about a more ‘experimental’ book for my next effort so it may take longer than usual to complete. Watch this space!
One of the most friendly and supportive bloggers who has made contact through this blog is Kim Barker who has two blogs, Laketrees and PoeArtica. She is a very talented Australian artist, and the portrait I won recently was by her (incidentally, she is starting a new competition to win a portrait on November 1st, so check it out) As I have been writing this blog I have gained in confidence and fluency largely thanks to the supportive comments and encouragement from the many kind souls who have taken the time to comment and encourage, and up at the top of this list of people has to be Kim who now feels like an old friend. Recently she produced the ‘Southern Cross Award’, in her words:
“Over the last 12 months I have made some great friends in Blogging….some old friends and some new friends….
I am giving this limited edition award to my best buddies…these are the buddies who have regularly visited and commented here and at laketrees…
thank you to you all…. you are great mates…….
you do not have to pass this award on…this is a token of my friendship….” and she passed the award to
Lisa Mikey Jan Morriconei Hidyn Gems Kitty Deborah MaryAnn Anna Boyd Renny Pearl Colin Ev Santa Diane Sue Blog Elf Lynda Mihaela Captain Life cruiser Fruity Franco Nihal
A lot of these people have commented on my blog too (thank you very much, it’s much appreciated) it makes me feel that I am part of a very supportive, friendly community and it’s typical of Kim that she thought to send this award. Thank you.
I’d like to add Tulibri, Struggling Writer, Clara and Creechman to my own personal list. Thank you all, I may not have an award for you but I am very grateful nonetheless.
