Thanks Melissa, By the way I am also interested in guest posting if anyone would like to have me post. Also I am totally open to having people repost my posts. ANything to help me get the Word out...

Kent, I'm glad you said something.  I would love to have you guest post- my blog is primarily for women creatives but I think you would have some great things to say about personal development and the artist that would be great.

 I'm also going to put the feelers out for anyone else here: I'm actively looking to have guest posts by artists and creatives (in every season) on http://www.launchyourcreativelife.com  Please let me know if you are interested.

I am going to make a serious effort this Spring at guest posting on others' blogs. Are there any particular blogs or sites you enjoy that focus on art, creativity, music, worship, leadership, and topics related to those? I can't think of a more knowledge group than Artists Arise who could identify the leaders and influencers in art and creativity. :)

Or, if any of you here have blogs and are interested in guest posts, I would love to hear about it. I made a huge mistake last year by not guest posting very much and want to make a big effort to connect with others doing similar work. Being able to connect with other awesome people on 48 Days has been so helpful.

David, I like your post- thanks  for letting us know about it. 

Deby- the course looks amazing :)  I'm sharing it as well!  Do you have another Artist Arise event planned for this year?

Thank you for your kind words; hope your celebration in the Smokey mountains continues to be wonderful :)

By the way, does anyone sell on Society 6?  It looks like an upscale Zazzle- except with a focus on artists.  I've started to notice it more and wondered if anyone had an opinion :)

Over on the AMOKArts blog today I posted my thoughts on those much lamented limitations we all face, I was curious about your thoughts. http://amokarts.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/limitations/

This new course I'm offering came forth from the Artists Arise conference. Many of the attendees have been working with we for the past few months and I must say, they've made great strides! I was so encouraged by their progress that I decided to offer it again. Here's the link

Greetings from the Smokey mountains. It's getting up to 48 degrees here today! Loving it!

Thanks Kent! If you join my Kirk & Deby Dearman facebook page, you can share the post and the link. Much appreciated!

Melissa, Love your mixed media painting! Seems very marketable to me.

So proud of you talented peeps! Amazing art is coming forth from this group. I feel like a proud mama . . . . :-)

I'm following the board on Pinterest also. Although I confess I don't really understand Pinterest (my wife is addicted to it, though).

Deby, congrats on your course! I looked at the content outline and it looks amazing. How can we help promote your course on FB, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.? 

I just released a podcast episode you all might enjoy: 10 Ways to Unlock Your Creativity. Had a lot of fun doing this one.

Great idea Nathan!  It will be fun to see our group's art collectively posted. Thank you for taking the initiative.  I'm following the board as well.
