Oh my goodness, what a beautiful print! I would be in heaven to win it! I think the most inspiring moment for me in 2008, was becoming friends with Milliande and learning and growing from watching her.

The most inspiring moment(s) of 2008 was visiting with my aunt and my cousins, reconnecting with part of my family, which helped me to turn a corner with my grief and has freed me from the bondage of it so I can now create again.

The most inspiring moment for me in 2008 was renewing my friendship with my sister. She truly rocks my world! I love your art! You are very talented and have a creative imagination!

I remember this lovely painting :] I'm lucky enough to have a beautiful fridge magnet too! One of my most inspiring moments this year was helping a friend through some hard times. The positives I was relaying to him helped me too!

Love and Blessings,

What a beautiful print. Most inspiring for me was a trip to Italy with art students from a local college. I had never drawn before this trip. I started doodling and the art students helped me get started. I came back to Canada and found Suzi Blu. Can't believe my progress! Love the goddess's. They inspire me everyday.

wow, THE most inspiring? ... there's so many!

my children and grandchildren inspire me every single day ...

but i've also been inspired by the goddesses on suzi's site and on the 3 week challenge ... the generosity and support are what i feel are shining examples of truly being the best we can be ...

My most inspiring moment was finding Suzi Blu video's, which led me to her blog and Petite Dolls. I spend a lot of time alone and really enjoyed connecting with special people and enjoying their art and creativity. I truly appreciate every person in the workshop and their encouragement,friendship and love.

Getting closer to family. Letting things roll off my back easier, rather than getting overly emotional and upset. Realizing that I am a good person and what others think about me,doesn't really matter. Happy Holidays

THIS moment is the "most inspiring" of "2008" - it always was and will me THIS moment, no matter the definition of time.

What a cute painting!! My most inspiring moment of 2008 was rediscovering my desire to do art during the summer- I started with stamping and then art journaling. That is how I found Tam (http://www.willowing.org) She is fantastic!!! I'm very inspired by her work!

willowing said...

ooh, some of my most inspiring moments were discovering nvc (nonviolent communication), eckhart tolle and byron katie. deeply grounding stuff. love your little painting here m! x

Luna said...

Beautiful print! Beautiful YOU! I love your art!
It is hard to find any one moment that shines... I find so much inspiration in the sacred ordinary of every day life. There is so much magic and music and light and divinity in a billion small things. But perhaps the most recent shining moment that inspired me most was on the evening of December 20 when my son whispered to me and his dad the name of our grandchild whose arrival we are awaiting somewhere around April 5th. The look of love and awe he feels about this his first child, just shone on his face. It was a spiritual moment so profound, and was so beautiful it made me cry! I have not had a moment to create art but there will be time this coming weekend in which I will make some art to commemorate the moment. There is such power in a name!

I wish you a beauty filled 2009 blessed with all the richest blessings of love, health, prosperity and above all inspired creativity! xoxoxoxo

For me the most inspiring thing of 2008 has been joining the blogging community.
To see all this wonderful art for free and to have all this info and input at hand. The cyber world is our oyster

The most inspiring moment of 2008 was actually at the end of the year - December 28th to be exact. I was afraid to start an art journal because I was just a "writer"; my brother was the "artist". I always told myself that I couln't draw and that I should just stick to writing my thoughts, hopes, fears, etc. on paper. I found Suzi Blu and took a leap of faith. To make a longer story short, I drew my first "self-portrait" and inspired myself to keep going... I am an artist!!! P.S. Your art is soooo amazing!!! I want to take Petit Dolls so bad I can taste it, but my craving will have to wait until funds permit... ;)

The most inspiring moment of 2008 was actually December 28th. For the past couple of months, I have wanted to start an art journal, but because I was a "writer" and my brother was the "artist" I was afraid to try. Because I was afraid of what my drawings would look like, I just stuck to expressing my hopes, fears, dreams, etc. with colorful language using pen and paper. I found Suzi Blu and and took a leap of faith. To make a longer story short, I completed my first "self-portrait" and inspired myself to continue to do what my fears said I couldn't... P.S. Your art is phenomenal!!! I want to take the Petit Dolls workshop so bad I can taste it, but my craving will have to wait until funds allow... ;)

Christianne said...

Your artwork is amazing!!! I didn´t know that we are together in two ning´s world, Suzi Blu and Milliande. I wish I can win this wonderful piece of art! Well, my most inspiring moment was finding Suzi Blu, Milliande and Willowing video's, which led me to Suzi Blu´s Petites Dolls and Milliande Creative Club. I really enjoyed connecting with special people and enjoying art and creativity. Hugs from Brazil, Chris

Hi Mariette, I would love winning one of your prints. So I'm sharing the most inspiring moment for me...which was when I wanted to reply on Suzi's blog but I had to join.....Had no idea how to join or make a blog page (am still working on my own blog page) and realized that this would be a great way for me to start on my own art journey for the world seeing what I create....Was and am still inspired with everything in the art world on the internet...and am inspired everyday by all the wonderful artists sharing their creations, knowledge, friendships and encouragements. You have a wonderful New Year Mariette and thanks for adding me as one of your new friends on Suzi's ning site. Joyful Artist

The most inspiring moment for me was finding love and acceptance from my close friends after finally letting them know I was bi-polar. It has freed me in so many ways. One way has been to seek out my creative side, something I have always been afraid of.

This is sooooo beautiful. Nothing would make be happier than having this print. During the 2008 many wonderful things happened in my life. Many changes and many new things are going on. God has been so wonderful to me I simply can't regret any moment of this year. But there was a turning point, the moment when my daughter in law Jeannet (Art teacher) gave me a tutorial and introduced me to the wonderful world of painting. Since then, I got so interested in painting that I bought supplies and found out about Milliande, and here I am, thirsty to learn more and more!

Linda said...

First of all I want to say Thank you for doing this and a Happy New Year.
I love your prints and would be honored to have one.
My most inspiring moment this year had to be when I met Suzi blu through a video. I was in a slump and she just pulled me up. I am doing the goddess class and love it.

thank you
Linda

Thank you for offering to share your art with one of us. And thank you for making me think of things that have truly inspired me! I do agree with the other Goddesses that there are many things that inspire me, and "YES" we should be inspired by each momment in our life. But, focusing on one I would choose the momment I realized that "my calling" or "gift" for this lifetime is SIMPLE: to share and help others have more joy in their lives. Thanks Again! Many Blessings! Jackie
