as 2009 slipped quietly away a few nights ago and we LOUDLY welcomed 2010..(lots of slightly illegal fireworks accompany many gardner family celebrations)...i was so content. excited even. i don't think i've ever looked forward to a new year so much as i am this one.
i believe that 2010 is going to bring so many wonderful opportunities, great growth, unselfish sharing, collaboration, growing new friendships and treasuring the old.
i have new friends and one INVALUABLE OLD FRIEND in my life, amazingly talented friends, who have big dreams for 2010 and i can't wait to watch each of them, each of you, as you realize those goals and achieve your "mondo beyondo" dreams!
lots of etsy stores opening up, several magazine write-ups, poetry published, photographs bought, framed and hung, gallery showings, art shows, classes taught and taken, shirts, journals, stationary and jewelry being made with YOUR art work and worn across the country....and on and on and on.
i've got chills just writing the words!
it's like starting the best book in the world and wanting to skip to the last chapter to see how it all ends!
you go girls!
2010 here we come!
