My last thread was hijacked and sent to a page not found.

I have closed instead of fixing so that Support can see it and sort out the person doing the coding on the threads.

So, please add your good news here :))))

If you were the last on the other thread please repeat here :)

An image of this painting will soon be gracing the labels of specialist Italian bakery products in Sydney, Australia. Special thanks to FAA and Google's search engine! When the business owner searched "Ancient Mills", my painting came up on the first page and grabbed his attention.

Wow Therese how proud you must be. I remember the excitement I felt when The committee for Camp Creative (summer school for the arts in Bellingen NSW) asked if the could put my painting on the cover of their brochure which went Australia wide as well as their web page for 2010.

We have so much awesomeness going on... A couple weeks ago, we were awarded "Best in Show" at DigiTech 2012 in Tallahassee, FL. We've also been nominated as "Best Illustrator" of 2011 by the Steampunk Chronicle and we'll find out on Tuesday if we won!

(Our display at DigiTech 2012)

We've also just gotten confirmation about a few more shows accepting our work, bringing our show total over 30. ^_^

Plus the two parts of MANDEM (Moco & Maize) are celebrating our 15th anniversary on May 1st!

Congratulations everyone :)

Yesterday, I learned that I received a grant from the local arts council (Kamloops Arts Council). I am very excited as it will be used towards purchasing art supply kits for local children that are part of a charity that I am working with. We are planning to exhibit some of the pieces the children create with these kits in their own group show next year. Waiting to hear back from the two art supply companies I put donation requests into for this project as well; fingers crossed. This will be so much fun; can't wait to see what the kids come up with and to view their show :)

Edit: Here's a link about the show for those interested: BKR Made With Love Project

one of my paintings was in the group and he announced my name.
so that's not the good news..the good news is that my sweetheart munchkin announced that i was her gramma!

I'm quite excited (and happy!) because I sold my first canvas print here at FAA! Just when I was thinking that I need to spend more time uploading work here. So I feel very encouraged. And did I mention I'm happy?

On Thursday, I went to a national office supply chain to get a cd drive (my new HP Touchsmart doesn't have one) and a 32gb flash drive for transferring files. It wasn't until I came home and checked the receipt that I realized I got the flash drive for nothing. The cashier didn't ring it up.
Today (Friday) I went to the mall and parked near JC Penney's. On the way back out I thought "I should check to see if they have my purse here" because mine fell apart after only 6 months. I found it, went to the register and the $39 bag rang up at $9.99. I got a second one.

Might not be art related, but since I'm not selling much anyway, saving $82 in two days works for me!

I'm glad to hear of everyone's success! No matter how small it may seem, it is important to stay encouraged, I'll take small as well as large! I'm very encouraged, I just started Pinterest yesterday, it's been 24 hours and I have one follower. I have gotten several views in my FAA gallery on all of the prints I have pinned that are mixed on the boards with interior images.

I want to give visitors a view of what art looks like in interior spaces. My goal is to have good looking boards that are somewhat color coordinated, I've even deleted some of my own work if it didn't coordinate with nearby images to try and get people excited about art in their living spaces. Should anyone be interested here is my Pinterest location:

I don't know my web address there, my name is Suzanne Powers but I think there is another person by that name, so I'm not sure if you can choose.

One of my silly little paintings I made at a painting party (a monthly-ish get together I host) sold when I uploaded it to share on FB.
When I brought it in to work to give it to the buyer, the Designer of the show I work on saw it, loved it, and put it on set (as a child's painting - but whatever).
In July or August, millions of people are going to see my little painting! :D
