GOODBYE AND THANK-YOU

We know this will make a lot of you sad but, after a year, Linda and I have decided not to continue with the Awfully Big Art Adventure. A lot has changed for each of us in that time, and these days we are both teaching craft classes and generally stretching our wings in new directions. The truth is that ABAA is no longer something which is a joy to do, but has become something we feel we ought to do in order not to let people down. It all takes up a surprising amount of time and we both feel that we need a break from it. We'll be leaving the blog up as inspiration, at least for the time being, and if anyone feels they could take over and run with it then please do get in touch.

So a huge thank you to all of you who've taken part in our challenges, and generally loved, encouraged, supported (and challenged) us! It's been an amazing journey and we've loved seeing what you do and learning just how much talent there is out there in blogland.

Our very best wishes to you all, and keep right on altering ....

I recently found you and can see the love and time you put into every blog entry. Your challenges are so creative and inspiring!

I was hosting monthly ATC swaps at my fiber arts store (now closed) but the ATC artists wanted to continue the swaps. I am hosting them through my blog, FiberAnticsbyVeronica.com if anyone would like to participate. We are a small group and would welcome any new traders.

Good luck with your new endeavors! Keep creating...

Veronica
