In my position, I'm blessed to be able to connect and get to know artists who I have so much in common with. Like so many other artists, I grew up feeling a bit different from my friends because my interests varied so much. Ever since beginning at Stampington, I feel like I'm connecting with "my kind of people." Everyone I've gotten to know is truly fascinating and each has a unique story of their own to tell.
One such artist who I've been able to get to know is Samantha Kira Harding, better known as Kira. When I was managing Art Journaling, I was blown away when her journals appeared on my desk. Her journaling is raw, heartfelt, and colorful. Through e-mail, I've gotten to know her, and she is just as wonderful as her journals. So imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox and saw a package from her. What was in it?
First, this fantastic custom card. Isn't it adorable? I LOVE silhouettes, so naturally I love this.
But the true treasure is this handmade journal. She couldn't have picked out a more perfect print for the cover if I had picked it out myself. And when I opened it, my heart was warmed by the message she shared.
Thank you Kira. Of course for the gift, but also for supporting me, and believing in me.
I urge you to go to her blog, where you can watch her outstanding videos and see her latest work.
