Many Thank you's to my Family, Friends, Blog Members & Fellow Artists. I Won

A very sore and down couple weeks for me recently have turned wonderful. In many ways throught the love of creating and my creations not only has it brought me joy to create for others but also being acknowledged for those creations is such an amazing thank you. I dont have to win to be happy. Just being notices is an amazing thing. The first great acknowledgment is with one of the challenges I created for. Artbeadscenes monthly challenge for 7000 Bracelets for Hope. That challenge if you remember was Two inspirations 7000 Bracelts for Hope & Pablo Picassos painting "Two Acrobats and A Dog" . As a reminder here are my pieces I created for the challenge and donated to the amazing charity.

My Second Great News for the Month

I reveived an Email today : This is just a small part of it.

copy paste ~

"Hi Kimberly!
We received your beautiful, blue inspired bracelets today, we love them all. I especially love the charms you attached. I think your designs would be wonderful for an upcoming event we are hosting and I'd love to share a few with those attending . Would you be interested in making a few bracelets, for our upcoming Tribute Gala? "  The rest Im saving for the reveal of the bracelets I create :)

This is only part of the exciting email I received. There is more but I want so save the best parts for later :). The email was from the 7000 Bracelets of Hope Director Lisa James. They loved my donations (the four bracelets I sent this month) and they want me to create for a special Gala Event in September. I dont know all the details but they are choosing a few artists for this even to create for the 50 Patient Advocates that are being honored at this event. They want special items created for them and they like my designs. I was so thrilled. What an honor. I was sent an inviation to the event which is held in California . Sadly it is not possible for me to go, but just the thought that they loved my work and wanted me there is such an honor. Even more of an honor they picked my designs with some other artisians handcrafted designs to create for these Honored Advocates. Wow what an honor. So I emailed back happily asking for more details and what they need me to do. Of course I will happily help and create for them. :)  They sent me these new links that go with the Gala Event to add to my site.

Here is just a few Highlights from the Gala Invitaion. It is too large of a file to add and Im not sure I am supposed to share all of it.

Well I guess I have bragged enough. Im truly blessed to have had so many wonderful things happen to me. Art has brought so much to my life and Im so happy God guided me in this direction. I know this is where I belong. Even when sales are slow. I know this is what I should be doing and I just put one foot forward and create. Polymer Clay is wonderful and of course who doesnt love Jewelry and bling of some sort. I will continue to create for my health and my heart because it truly is the only thing that makes me feel better some days. I put alot of love into everything I create and I have some fun new creations coming up that I have never seen anyone do before. Some little designs that I worked up and Im so thrilled about sharing. I plan to share after my magazine is published. So keep coming back for more. I have lots to share. I am finishing up three tutorials to post also, all will be free and fun for anyone beginner or expert. Watch for those too.

Kim I am glad to see your Blogger is back under control (petulant child!) I wanted my message to be public, so here it is again:

Just wanted you to know how pleased I am about your good news re: the 7000 Bracelets organization, and the validation it has given you. I know you said you "create for my health and my heart"... I, too, prefer to go where my developing creativity leads me in positive direction. But it feels so good to get that acknowledgement, doesn't it, after putting in all that effort!

Congrats on the PCAGOE results, too! I hadn't realized there were two levels of voting, so I had only seen the "Members" result, I suppose (they were in some newsletter I get, forget which one). You have a great attitude and a big heart, Kim. That alone is a winning result!

Wonderfully written and spot on!! It's easy to get caught up in the numbers game, almost
