On 5 December 2005 I started textile seahorse in the usual faltering style of the novice blogger. Blogging has been a salvation during the dark times, and a bit of a drag when I couldn't think of anything to say but said it anyway. It has definitely made me a better artist - blogging a project kept me up to the mark in trying to do my best work, experimenting and connecting with so many people across the vast interwebby oceans. There are people I now count as dear friends who found me through my blog. For a while the blog felt like it had run its course and I nearly gave up on it, but everything seems to be working again now and the blogging momentum is back.
So, to celebrate 8 years of wittering I am going to give away a copy of Seth Apter's new book (have I mentioned it before??) The Mixed Media Artist Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams From Over 40 Amazing Artists.
So, leave a comment and there will be a random drawing of the lucky winner next week.
