I love looking at other people's blogs and getting ideas and seeing what is going on in their lives. It is better than TV for me at times. After a few months of just checking out blogs...I have found some of the most incredibly talented women in our country. I think Martha Stewart is talented...but these women are just as good..if not better. The links to blogs I read features some of them, but when you go on one of those blogs, you will see their favorites...and it is amazing. These women are not only crafty, but they are smart business women who are also wives, mothers, daughters, teachers, doctors, etc. It is all very inspiring. In my searches, I found this neat site Another Girl at Play. It gives various stories of different artists and how they got started and what advice they can give. So...check it out. I also stumbled upon an interesting quote, from a very talented woman, Beverly Sills.
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try.
Another one I liked is:
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
To all of the women out there who have inspired me throughout the years, and all the women I have yet to meet...thank you.
One of them...
