"3 Thoughts 4 A Fond Hope" D. Altaville c.2007
First I have to say, God is awesome! He is doing so many wonderful things in my life
right now, even as we speak! And He has blessed me with wonderful blogging friends
who have encouraged and inspired me with their kind support of my art.
And for that, I Thank You All.
And I just found out that Underwired Magazine will be using one of my pieces for
their Feature Illustration Page. How cool is that?
I also have something comeing out in the Spring Art Erraticus Zine. Be sure to check it
out as it is a great publication with lots of inspiring eye candy!
And with the help of the Great Divine and my wonderful blogging friends,
Art n Joy seems to be rolling along.
So even though it is 34 degrees here on the first day of Spring, and I have
this nasty chest cold, and a sick child and hub, I am optimistic about what
this new season will bring!
And now I'm off to the doc....Happy Spring Everyone and Thanks Again
for your kind support!

Congratulations on your publications and the success of your Etsy shop. I noticed that you've been selling quite well!!

I see that you are selling some prints. I have always wanted to do a run of prints from some of my aceos, but I just don't know where to start. Do you print your own on a home printer or do you get them professionally done?

Yayyyyyy! bluejude! That's GREAT news!!! Now, GET WELL all of you up there in PA!!! Yes! I was wondering the same thing about those prints! Do you print them out yourself girly??? I'll have to look up that underwired magazine pretty soon! Wooooo Hoooo! When's it come out?

BlueJude said...

Well, since a lot of my work incorporates both traditional and digital mixed media collage I usually do it from here. I have a good scanner and printer and I also use quality paper.
Thanks for the congrats. The piece in Underwired will be out in April.
No pay, but it's exposure.
Art n Joy is off to a good start, but keep in your prayers ladies and let's hope it lasts! I need the income in a big way!!

If you don't mind my asking, what type of printer do you have and was it super expensive?

Yes do tell about your printer and such...we all want to know! Congrat's on all the good news! I am super happy for you...uuummm are we praying to the same big guy...coz I don't think he's getting my memos. Just kidding...I am so pleased that things are going well for you, you deserve it, your work is fantastic!

Congratulations Darcy on the magazine using one of your pieces. That's brilliant :)

Spring feels like an eon away here too, with arctic winds sweeping down and a general feeling of misery engulfing us all. But your gorgeous little chick helps me smile...
