It’s been 7 years since we put the first card in the sky.
So much has changed.
We almost had to close between this year and last. Somehow, running on miracles, we were able to save this place. &While things are still somewhat uncertain, I am grateful for this opportunity to continue what we are trying to build on.
It has been six whole years today since CardCastles first opened its virtual doors.
We started off from humble beginnings. This place has come a very long way after completing an equally extensive journey. We have shared so many memories with you as a family through my artwork and journals, and that spawned off into even more beautiful things. We have enjoyed this trek amongst the stars in the sky with you, so much so it gave birth to new worlds and a parent company. Snapping Turtle was born out of love. New ventures it seeks as it now takes over the clouds and we transition through the full merge.
So much more planned for the rest of this year. & For however long we keep this going.
Over the weekend, our little family took a trip to see some more family for my birthday. On the way there, we finally got to see autumn show off all of its beautiful colors. These are just some snaps from the trip.
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.
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.
Today CardCastlesInTheSky is celebrating its two year anniversary.
I would’ve loved to throw a huge virtual birthday celebration for it but, the truth is – it caught me a bit off guard this year. There’s been a lot going on in my personal life lately. I promise things will start to get back to normal here by the fall season.
For now I’d just like to thank all of you for being a fantastic group of readers. I appreciate your love and support every day. This place has done some great things for others. After two years, it’s now beginning to help me too. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for that.
I hope to see you again for year three! (I’m promise there will be art & a bigger party next time.)
