The idea to start this blog was given to me by my friend Minnie while at Artfest. And the courage to get it going was given to me by my friend Gwen, who I also met at Artfest. Just shows how Artfest can change your life! Thank you for the ideas and inspiration. I think the hardest part about starting a blog was wondering whether I had anything worthwhile to say. But I decided that perhaps if it was a record for me of events and special moments during the year that would be enough, and if somewhere along the line it inspired someone - well, that would be a gift.
