it takes an artsyvillage

just-who-i-needed-blog

well, it's far past wednesday morning, but i'll slide in here before the day closes and hopefully that will do. if that wasn't some of the funniest and most supportive commentary ever! you came through huge, every one of you, to help get that feisty morning back on track. such restorative power there is in community! from now on, whenever i can't get my disheveled self together in the morning i'm coming back to this post for reinforcement.

so, without further fuss: the artsyville accountant, who i assure you is truly random, chose ecobatt, alex, cactus petunia, curls o fred, and lisa gallup. please send me your addresses at artsyville(at)gmail(dot)com and i'll send your bookmarks on their way. wish i had enough bookmarks for everyone.

and a big hug to renee's family and friends.

Hi Aimee - there's another blogging artist I think you might enjoy. I love the whimsical way you both seem to approach your art and your lives:

Jennifer said...

love your artwork! Yes it truly does take an 'artsyvillage'...I have those mornings frequently sometimes, and then if I'm not careful they turn into a entire day! Sharpen your pencils and turn the page, it always helps me!

jane said...

glad you are feeling better!... i´ve had those days when you finally look up and it´s only 9 in the morning! ... happy weekend!

Megan Walker said...

The title of your post alone made my day :) But your doodle extraordinaire is awesome! Most importantly, we came to help because *you* are awesome :)

Oh-and I missed the morning post too-mornings are a double edged sword I find-I like them for their newness and promise but I am so slow in the morning. God knows what I would do if I had kids! How you mothers do it I don't know! I always find coffee helps-oh-and not having to go to work!

How did you know the words that were in my soul? You were listening, weren't you. Thank you for indulging my despair and clucking with compassion and feeding me sunshine, dearest aimee.

Your little Nina is quite the budding philosopher! I'd love a Redo button. Do they sell them at Staples?
