Congratulations! I have never heard of that magazine - but then, I'm still new to the world of blogs. Actually, I have your Inspiration Staycation to thank for introducing me to blogging and all it has to offer.

Hugs and wishes for continued success.

Oh right - a word to describe 2010 .... humbling.

That is, in fact, how I found you. I was wandering in Borders and quite by accident, stumbled upon the magazine. My life has not been the same since. It inspired me to really work on my blog. The art, the writing. Everything. It is a wonderful, inspiring magazine and you are to be congratulated for being included.
Bravo.

Laura said...

Congrats to you and your team Kim.. so so happy for you.. it's my dream to be featured there one day too!
BIG HUGS AND CONGRATS!
thks for the chance to win.. I love this mag too. however, it's always so pricey.. i usually pass it by and just look thru it at the bookstore... even with a coupon.. it's often out of my price range.. sighs.
I'd love to win!
my one word for this past year -- it would have to be COURAGEOUS.
I have been courageous this year.
Being more transparent, sharing my story. Letting myself be loved by ppl I barely knew.
I am courageous.

How exciting is this... I will have to go to JoAnn's and get myself one of the copies. Love that magazine along with their jewelry designer issues too. So excited for you Kim. Well done and well deserved!
The iStudio will grow now, as more and more people find out about your generosity and all that you offer to the members of iStudio.

madelincwolf said...

Congratulations! I am so inspired by you and your art.

2010 has been stressful, however the rest of the year pales in comparison to the last 50 days that my DH has been in the hospital with cancer. My life has changed forever. I was going to say stressful for my word, but for the last few days of the year it has to be HOPE.

Thanks for your generosity. I am so glad that I found you in Artful Blogging. You belong in every issue!
