Big Big BIG news

One year ago I discovered the Hero Arts Flickr group. It seemed to be a delightfully fun group of extremely talented women who wanted to share their work, ideas and love of the process with each other. I was thrilled to discover that my first impression was correct. A year later and it has practically tripled in size and yet still has the same goals and beliefs that were and are being practiced on a daily basis. I consider myself very lucky to be an active part of this group.

Several months ago the Hero Arts company saw the need for a hostess program to aid in the daily functions of their ever rapidly growing flickr group. They named several very deserving members to be their first group of Hero Hostess'. These members pioneered the program and helped set some of the guidelines and obligations for the current hostess'.

This week Hero Arts is announcing the names of their current Hostess and today it is my name on their blog. My name will be added to the list of 20 other crafters, all of which I admire greatly. I am touched deeply by this honor. Terribly proud to know my name will forever be part of that list.

We all know that soon I will be cracking jokes about this, because that is what I do. But for today, I am a teary eyed and a bit speechless.
Thank you to Hero Arts. I wear my apron proudly.
