This is the 13th year celebration for the first day of my blog!
It's such a wonderful anniversary.  I have been part
of the blog world for 13 years, and it's been a fantastic
experience. There is no question in my mind that these
past 13 years have been the best years in my life hands 

My blog won me incredible media attention. It got me onto
the Oprah Winfrey show via Skype. I have been so lucky to have both
and newspaper and magazine recognition for my work in Canada, and
in Europe, to be invited to show in international 
exhibitions in Paris, Florence,
the Netherlands and New York City.  Plus it's helped me make friends with
artists and art collectors all over the world. 

Being involved in international shows has given me wonderful
friendships with all of the 
people I showed with in major exhibitions.
These past 13 years have been an extra special time 
filled with inspiration,
amazing opportunities, and so much fun!

I am so grateful. Thank you blog world, and Flora my friend
who introduced me to the world of blogging, Christopher, my son,
who helped 
me start blogging, and to everyone who has supported this blog
to the point of 639204 + hits, on 2770 blogs!  Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you one million! (We'll get there!)

Congratulations Barbara. I'm blown away that you have done this for 15 years.
You've provided knowledge, humour and insight into so many things.
Must talk to you about this adventure one day.

Miss you,

Warm and loving hug,

Thank you so much Gabrielle,

It's only 13 years, but I plan to keep blogging.
Thank you for your sweet comments. I think indirectly
the blog helped me meet you! I'm so glad I did.
Love your work, and love knowing you. You are amazing.

Miss you too,
