dear fellow flyers,

October 13, 2011
mixed media painting


first of all, i just wanted to say thank you to all of new people who have recently been subscribing to my blog and leaving comments. i especially want to say thank you to all of the fellow flyers from kelly rae’s second e-course. i am being bombarded with lots of blog love and emails and i love it! i am completely blown away.

for those of you who don’t know, i took kelly rae’s first class. i learned so much from her class. since then, i have been published twice. once in somerset studio, and then in art journaling. my art even made the cover of art journaling, which still feels surreal. i have three new articles coming out this winter. i set up my website, designing it myself. i started teaching local classes. i am putting the finishing touches on an e-course about art journaling. i had my first big solo art show. i think i could go on and on about all the amazing things that have happened in my business since i took her class.

but what i am most proud of in my business is touching other people’s lives with my story. i love hearing from all of you who have gone through or are going through something similar. it makes what i went through worth it to see how my story inspires others. so if you are new here, i thought i would share with you a few of my all time favorite posts, plus a few that i think you might find helpful.

a heart made light  hint: read through the comments…

a spoonful of confidence

i can’t not do art

on getting published as an artist

you never know

keep dreaming and know that your dreams are possible. it has amazed me even today to step back and see all that i have accomplished in my business since i took kelly rae’s class. sometimes you just need to stop and take stock of where you were a year ago. i am so grateful and i am honored that you are here. so thank you!

    Thank you for this! There are many of us fliers in the 2011 class that have been wondering how the class of 2010 is doing!

    Thanks for sharing with us how many of your dreams have been realized! We are hoping to follow in your footsteps!

    Wendy, thanks for sharing your journey with us! I will definitely check out the posts. I resigned from my job yesterday and today began building my creative arts biz full-time. Stories like yours inspire me! Keep flying, Rae

    You have inspired lots of us with your blog posts…it’s nice to see the steps you took to reach your goals. Sometimes we tend to look at artists & forget all the work they have done to reach that point in their career. So, thank you!
