Introducing FAB Fridays

I have a new feature I am now adding to my blog and it's called FAB Fridays. And it's all about you. I am always so grateful more than words can ever say and often feel my words are inadequate to express how I feel about those of you who stop by my humble little blog. And those of you who leave comments just send me over the moon with your kindness and sweet words. I am also so very grateful for those of you who stop by the blog who are also customers, either at the online store or my Etsy store.

Often I read or hear comments family and friends support me, but they don't understand the feelings and the passion I have for my art. I know so many of us have found those who do understand, here online, and we've made friends, some who unfortunately must always remain virtual, and some who stay and some who come to a fork in the road and some are even lucky enough to become friends in real time. And so it is with me. My family supports me, may brag about me to to others, tell me that what I do is pretty or beautiful or "interesting" and they appreciate totally when I create something for them, but deep in my heart I know they don't always understand what fuels me. (And they love me so they don't have to) But you do. And for that I am also grateful.

So I decided that on Friday's, as a small way for me to repay your kindnesses and friendships and customer loyalty, I would like to give you something. Every Friday until the end of the year I am putting up a Free ATC Background(FAB)(and because you guys are FABULOUS!) that I design digitally and offer no where else but here. If you like it it's yours dear reader...copy it, print it, modify it, change it, use it in your digital work, your 3D work, can use it for absolutely anything you want, but it will be ATC sized at creation (2.5" x 3.5").

So here is my first FAB Friday offering. If you like it take it, if you don't, try back next week because I never know what will come off the digital drawing board.:-)

How very generous Gail!!

I'm sure all of us that live in this part of Bloglandia know exactly where you are coming from. I know when I fell into this wonderful little world I was over joyed!! Finally people who knew what I was talking about, who got it :)

Now with the start of rainy season your background is perfect!! That is exactly how the dry forest looks during an evening rain :)

ooooh yes. That IS why blogging is so important. We all understand each others desire to create something that starts in our mind and works its way through our fingers. Thank you so much for sharing. Laurie

You are so sweet Gail! I think we all feel that way about our online family who 'gets' the why in what we do.
