Just a moment ago I got an e-mail which completely made my week. In fact I am sitting here beaming as I write this!!! Sometimes, I wonder why I have a blog. Often the pressure of creativity really stresses me out trying to come up with new stuff to show you all the time. Hey.......I'm just being real here!! I rarely take a break and I rarely talk about others work (unless I get it for a swap.) E-gads, I sound really strange, huh? Like where in the heck is this going, Carol??? OK.......let me tell you what happened!
Tonight as I was cleaning out my spam e-mail folder, I came across an e-mail from a stranger. Now, with all the crazy virus' out there, I mostly don't even open stuff from people I don't know, but for some reason, I did and I'm soooo glad. The e-mail was from a gentleman named, Don Masse who is a teacher at Zamorano Fine Arts Academy in San Diego who used one of my quilts as inspiration for his students. You must read about it here. I am so honored!!! I never really tell many people, but in my younger years, I wanted more than anything to be an art teacher for middle school. I went to college for it, but never finished because my mother was a widow who needed my help financially. Instead, I got a job in an insurance company and climbed the ladder there. Needless to say, I never stopped loving art and crafts and anything creative! In many ways, I feel as though I have taught kids now. I am beaming!! Please read his blog! How completely cool!
