December 19, 2014 Weekend LinksHonest Talk Pin Share Tweet Reddit Stumble Happy Friday you guys! I’m pretty happy to say that I’ve wrapped up quite a few loose ends this week with work and other obligations and I’m feeling ready for the holidays. Today’s ‘Honest Talk’ is really about saying thank you to you. I’ve had a blog for years, but really haven’t felt like I’d found my groove up until this year. There’s been lots of trial and error and so much learning along the way. A few things I figured out this year: how to work my camera in the manual settings, more about designing and coding so that I could provide you with a user-friendly site and lastly I found a good balance between working and blogging. I’ve met countless talented and inspiring women through blogging and I’m thankful to call several of them close friends. And most of all, I’m forever grateful for all of you who stop by, read posts, leave comments, follow me on Instagram and Pinterest and continue to keep me motivated to keep doing something that I love. With that said, I’m already thinking about my goals for 2015. They’re still a work in progress, but I want to hear from you guys! What do you like? What do you hate? Anything you want to see more (or less) of?! Etc, etc, etc. So I’ve set up a very quick reader survey and would be thrilled if you’d take 5 minutes out of your day (actually, it probably doesn’t even take that long) and answer a few easy questions. At the end of it, I’ll be randomly selecting 3 email addresses to receive a FREE art shop print — your choice*! So again, thank you for all for your kind words over the years and your continued support — it means the world and keeps me moving! The survey link is below and is much appreciated! READER SURVEY * Your choice of print from what’s in stock at that time. Survey will close on December 27th and winners will be selected and contacted by December 29th.
