Some exciting things...

Do you remember my art journal bird from a while back? Well, I recently joined the Brave Girls Club and subscribed to their very inspiring daily truth e-mails. Each e-mail starts out with "a little bird told me..." and we artists can submit our birds and they may be featured one day. 
Imagine my surprise when my bird was featured today! Yeah!!! If you want to see it and also check out the Brave Girls Club website (well worth it), just click here.
While I am on the topic of exciting news, I thought I'd share with you two beautiful treasuries, in which my knitting and art were included. West Coast Glass put together the above gorgeous collection of aqua and blue treasures. Doesn't it remind you of ocean and summer and blue skies?!
And then Bella Rennie Designs delighted me by putting my hope bookmark into her hope treasury! I love how she named it "I can't live without it." Isn't that the truth?! Simply click on all the colored links to visit the treasuries and etsy shops.

Tomorrow, I have some more knitting to share with you and then also some glimpses of spring we are seeing around here. It's going to be in the 70's today and we can hardly believe it!!

Wishing you a delightful and creative Friday!

  11. Hi Silke,
    I saw your beautiful bird on the Brave Girls site today. I just finished their amazing ecourse.
    I enjoyed spending some time reading your blog today . Very inspiring!
    I also chose "focus" as my word for 2011. Staying focused is one of my biggest challenges.
    all the best!

  12. silke, i love this bird. its pinks and blues and purples and yellows still make ME want to soar!

    it was 56 here today which melted three inch thick ice on my roof and gave a teaser sense of spring to come. so your buds are ready to open? i will love to see them.

    congrats on the treasuries. it's a good year so far, yes?
