What My Friends Are Blogging

You may have noticed that sidebar to the right with a list of other sites to visit when you get bored with my blog. I'd like to highlight two friends who've made the blogosphere plunge in the past year:

I've known Wendy Shang since we lived in neighboring dorm suites our first year of college. (I won't say how long ago ;o) Her first novel The Great Wall Of Lucy Wu is being published next year by Scholastic! She's blogging about the writing life at Skytale and is also a contributor to From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle-Grade Authors, a new blog that's starting off with a blast this month by giving away nine books!

I first met Mel Kolstad on-line through the old ATCards site (now ATCs For All), but I now count her as a "real life" friend :D since we also get to meet every month in person to trade ATCs with the Milwaukee Artist Trading Card group. Mel recently made the big plunge of becoming a full-time artist! Her first blog Much Ado About Stuff now has its own spin-off blog Ephemeraology focusing on her love of vintage stuff.

So go check 'em out!

Hey Carmi! Thanks for stopping by! Yup, Mel's taken the big leap! :D

Mel said...

Oh, what a nice plug! Thanks Carolyn (I have no idea how I missed this before the 5th of July?!?)!

And thanks to you, Carmi, for the well wishes! :D

Do you have any information about any art quilt or fabric painting classes in the Milw. area. I am interested in learning more but I am not finding any groups or individuals. Please let me know-sandraj1951@yahoo.com

I'll e-mail you, Sandra, but you might check with the folks at Bigsby's Sewing Center or Artist & Display.
