Artful Blogging

I supposed to make this post on the day I received this amazing, beautiful, artful, chockingly inspiring magazine, about 3 weeks ago. But then, many things stumbled my feet along the way.(Ya...ya...ya...) Well, I post it now, so it still count that I really want to share it with you all (that don't know yet about it).

At first, I just doing my flip around through people's blog to know what inspire people the most, when suddenly my click arrived at this particular site, http://www.stampington.com and boom! My eyes get wide open to the inside peek at the magazine. I ordered it right away. And wait..

When the package came about 3 weeks ago..I almost cried to see what is inside. Really giddy over for too much excitement. Yes, sure. They are too much. Inside are so many wonderful artist...all of them are blogging actively, all of them (almost) are women, who can take an amazing photographs of their own works and life, all of them are drop dead creative from painting, sewing, scrapbooking, drawing, mixed media college, and many more, all of them have super amazing blog or shop at Etsy. (Did I use the word 'amazing' more than 10 times, already?Hhh...)

So...by now, I already contact some of them and ask if I can add them to my favorites link at my blog. And they said yes! Oh, thank God.They are just very warm and nice people. Could not imagine that they are so popular already but still manage to do this personally. Surely I will gradually add them one by one to my blog.

And then there is many challenge for the artist that have a week's time limit (how could you manage to do that regularly?). Yes, weekly challenge, ladies. Just put your heart to the maximum speed limit and hit the button, I suppose. Let's say, if this week challenge is the word "memories" , you could do ANYTHING artsy with that particular theme, and post it. Then link your blog to their site. And when I looked at the entry for the post...could you believe that they are hundreds entries!!! And the time is just the second day from the challenge begins! Amazing! I'll add the sites of those weekly challenge here at my blog soon.

I used to think (when I look at artist's book about crafting, painting, writing, etc), that they only do what they love to do in order to make the book (do you get what I said?).That is no way they are doing it everyday. And I used to have the picture in my mind that artist is quite a snob person since she wish for other people to 'understand' what she has, what she has been through to get 'these artist label' , which is why, I am so afraid if people call me by the name artist.

But, boy, oh boy... how wrong I am....

These artist (knew it by reading to their blog post), have the same fear, the same worries that people may call them weird by making their lovely art everyday (yes, they making it everyday), they have real and beautiful life, and posting all their work in their blog as soon as the work is finished, like there will be no tomorrow.

Ooooh, I wish I could be like them...they are in the world that I wish to be part of, but there are many things I should deal first before I can leap to that wonderland.
I have to find someone to help me with blogging stuff since I really stuck with the code and secret language...Hhhh.
I have to improve my skill in taking picture, fast!
And I have to wait for my book to be released so I can post my work here.....
(Should I have to wait my kids to grow up?)

But, now... I inspired more than ever.
I am normal.
So many women do this and proud to be called artist.
They are alive.
They are blogging.
They are normal.
They are amazing, amazing, artist.
