Hi there. It’s me again. You know the chick that’s really slack when it comes to blogging. Did you miss me? What, you didn’t even notice I was gone!! Oh yeah that’s right because I hardly ever blog anyway hehehe.
So it’s been a big couple of weeks in cyberland for Run Away Violet. Let me elaborate.
First of all the lovely Kristine over at Living in The Moment wrote a lovely blog post about my ‘Fairy Lovesong’ painting as part of her Whimsical Wednesdays. How cool is that? I think that’s the first time anyone has ever blogged about me. I was so completely thrilled and honoured to be featured on Kristine’s gorgeous blog. I can’t even describe how awesome that made me feel. Thank you Kristine. You rock!!
Next I was looking at my Etsy shop stats and noticed lots of traffic coming from Tumblr. I have to admit I’ve never really been on Tumblr before. Maybe once or twice looking at WTF is Matt Bellamy Wearing (this site is hilarious, if you don’t know already Matt is the lead singer of Muse and he is somewhat challenged in the style department). Anyway I clicked on over to check out the page that was sending me traffic All Things Alice In Wonderland only to find my “Tea With Alice” had been on their awesome page and was being passed around Tumblr and reblogged quite a bit. I have to say I was pretty floored by it all. It’s kinda weird and kinda amazing to think that something I drew on a bit of paper from nothing and then painted could have ended up where it did. It blows my mind.
But wait there’s more. My gorgeous first ever Etsy customer put a lovely blog post up about a little print I recently sent her. I honestly cried when I read it. Thank you sweet Debi. :)
And finally my little mail art girl ‘Danita’ appeared on the Tim’s Sally blog which belongs to the fabulous Mindy Lacefield. It really made my day to see that she had arrived and that Mindy liked her. I can’t wait to open my letterbox to find what little treasure she has sent me in return. I totally loved doing the mail art thing. So cool. I’ll show you what Mindy sends me when it arrives. So excited…..
Anyway that’s all from me for now. Expect another exciting and insightful blog post from me sometime before Christmas :)
