Blogging began for me in October 2008 - mostly as a way to promote stamping/papercraft classes I was teaching at a local store. Now, nearly 6 years later, I've amassed 1,000 posts!
Lots of things have changed since POMI's beginnings - the store has closed and I no longer teach but the biggest change has been the content of this blog.
Beginning in 2011 I discovered the wonders of mixed media! Artists like Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, Donna Downey and Alisa Burke were a huge influence on me deciding to try my hand at painting/drawing which has become one of my most favorite ways to enjoy myself and cope with stress.
If it weren't for the Internet and generous artists willing to share their art and techniques I'd have never reached beyond my comfort zone and tried new things. Do I have more to learn? Absolutely. Have I come a long way? Yup, but I've drawn things I'd have never imagined I'd be able to - love all the quirky girls I seem to be constantly drawing! I can't wait to see where the next 1,000 posts take me! Thanks for visiting my little corner of the blogosphere and sharing the ride with me.
