Cloud Drifting

Today is the site’s 3rd year anniversary!

I cannot help but be excited with of all the new changes being added. You have all been with me every step of the way and I appreciate that, wholeheartedly. ♥️

The new home in the clouds was a partial gift from someone close, who knows how much this means to me. & I love them for that.
I am thrilled to celebrate this milestone with old friends and new faces, fresh eyes, and talented meetings.

You have helped make this place a significant location for Art Culture on the internet and I love you for that. Yes, you, my reading friend, my art lover, old or new.

Special Thanks:

Thank you to anyone that liked or commented on some of the music-related posts I’ve done in the past few years here on CardCastles. Music will continue to play a large role in some of my postings here. I may also be posting some recordings of my own in the near future.
Thank you to everyone that follows the site’s feed on Twitter. You’ve helped CardCastles get noticed by actors, musicians, comedians, artists, and writers everywhere. That was my dream, but certainly not my intention. You’ve thrust this place into the limelight of The Arts community, and I’m largely thankful to all of you for that.

*Cheers to many more years!*

Year End Art Gallery 2013

2013 is drawing to a close. There’s no better way to send it off than with a bang. This is a compilation slideshow of all of the top picks from my gallery over at Twenty20.com. These are also a combination of the top viewed/favorites featured here on CardCastlesInTheSky. So, sit back and enjoy the show!

Some of this art was specifically designed for articles here. A handful were inspired by family, friends, and even you!

What has been your favorite addition to CardCastlesInTheSky? What would you like to see more of next year?

100th Post Party

balloons & confettiWelcome to my 100th post party! Today is my 100th article published here on WordPress. I’d like to dedicate this milestone to you, the readers. Without you, I wouldn’t have a reason to share my thoughts, writing, and art with the world. You make this possible every day. With each link you click, with each post you “Like” or comment on, you make me smile. So pull up a chair, sit back, and enjoy the virtual party.

Special Thanks

Thank You greeting
I’d like to thank PeaceGarret for choosing my children’s story, Little Blue Feather as a winner for the Bloggers for Peace Monthly Peace Challenge: Giveaway as a winner. His words of kindness and thoughtful gesture, along with a shiny copy of his lovely book, A Map and a Mule have touched and inspired me. It’s writers like him that remind me why I love writing in the first place. You can all expect a warm review of the above mentioned book in my next post.

Some other lovely people worth mentioning are: Sofia Siberia, Maddie Cochere, Kozo, Dianne Gray, Anka, and Rohan over at Rohan 7things. You have all become friends of mine and I appreciate your active participation in many of my discussions. All of you are avid readers and I treasure your visits here.

Last, but most certainly not least, I’d like the thank everyone else. The silent readers, the visitors outside of the WordPress community, the e-mail followers, people that find me because of a random search and decide to stay anyway, you all mean just as much to me. Your suggestions via e-mail, your purchases of my artwork, all of this keeps me going. These actions speak louder than words at times. It all makes me strive to do more. You make me strive for absolute greatness, and I’ll gladly take you along for the ride.
