Somebody Won my Flag!


Thank you all so very much for your sweet comments and wonderful blogs! I appreciate each and every one of you sooo much. A year ago I hadn't yet begun to blog and I wasn't teaching. Wow did those two things change my life big time. I was living a pretty isolated artist's life...just keeping my head down and working. But now I have friends all over the world and the honor of teaching so many days of my life. I hear from hundreds of people every month and I am so blessed to share my life and my art with you. Thank you for helping me spread the word about this really exciting new workshop I am working on, Marketing Mindset. I have learned through teaching these past 6 months or so that I want to share with you what I know...completely. Holding all my "secrets" close to me won't accomplish a thing. I gain nothing. Only in giving it all away do I find that I in return receive so much...from you. Marketing is something I do well and I want to share it all. If what I teach can change the life of one artist, then I am doing what I am supposed to be doing and my cup will runneth over...my fabric stash already does!

So I could not be more thrilled to tell you that the winner of "The Women-The Flag" is an artist and woman I admire very much....Let's hear it for JoAnnA Pierotti!!!! Yea JoAnnA! This wonderful woman is an example of a woman who shares all of herself with everyone she knows. She has been a blessing to me and to all those who come in contact with her. I know she will give the 50 women on my flag a lovely home in the mountains of California. If I could hand-deliver it I would! I am very happy that we drew her name.

Again...thanks to all of you. I wish I could give you all a flag. But since I can't...let me encourage you to fly your own flag. Take the flag of creativity out of your closet this week and run it up the pole, fly it in the breeze, salute it, honor it...and just you wait and see what happens.

Well, this made me cry!!! Tears of joy, of course. Dear Dear KC - I can't believe it. I'm overwhelmed, honestly. Your flag is my most favorite piece of all your work. It means so much to me. Thank you my friend, and thank you for the beautiful words you spoke of me. I feel the same about you.

Well, this flag will be received at a perfect time. My niece, Lindsay, a Sargent, serving in the US Army as a Military Police Officer - served in Iraq for 1 1/2 years and is now at West Point in New York. I will dedicate this flag to her. Lindsay will be on security Tuesday as President Obama speaks to us from there.

When I hang this beautiful flag in my home, I will be reminded how blessed I am that I was born a woman, and blessed to know so many wonderful woman in my life and especially through this art world, as you wrote about. I will also be reminded of all the amazing woman who came before me who made this country what it is today.

Thank you so much KC!!! I am so happy.
much love,
JoAnnA
