Yippee-- I won!!!
In July of 2011, I started blogging. At the time, I didn't know how to take blog pictures and had 3 followers, all of whom were family members-- including me! I remember reading other blogs and seeing all the awards that fellow blogger had earned. For instance, a local fellow CTMH consultant (Debbie Carriere) had so many awards that she had to create a separate page!
So, I continued this blogging journey, had my artwork occasionally pinned on Pinterest, and slowly earned followers along the way. I remembered when Tamra Pope started following me. As a blogger, you are both honored to gain another follower and at the same time surprised. You think-- wow, maybe I'm not so bad! Seems like some artists, particularly myself, often see the mistakes and not the creativity and uniqueness.
I would like to thank Tamra Pope, a fellow CTMH consultant, for the award. Tamra's work is phenomenal. She recently won the 2012 Album of the Year at CTMH's annual convention in Texas. If Tamra hadn't just earned an award, I would have nominated her myself. Please check out Tamra's blog. Expect to be there for a while:)
