Wow!! I retweeted this and popped on the link to read to the surprise of finding my name at the top of your list. I am humbled. I am also a little nervous, now I really have to give everyone something to watch. But I love what I am given the opportunity to do, creating art, building relationships,mentoring, and making a difference with my art so I will leap forward into 2013 with your blessing! Thank you Annie!!!
