A Call Out to My Blogging Friends

Sometimes I go wandering around in WordPress to see what’s new, blogs that I haven’t visited before, and to get inspired by other bloggers who do extraordinary things in their life, deeds that they do for others, or people who share their talents – whether it’s writing, photography, painting, music, crafting, fashion styling, or other business-type ventures.  It’s basically my entre to “your” world and I love every introduction.

I don’t usually do this, but I’d like to introduce you to two blogging friends that if you haven’t had an opportunity to visit their sites I think you’ll find extraordinary gems I found in our wordpress blogging world.

First up is, Eva Marks an established shoe designer and clothing fashion design illustrator whose style is distinctive, a flair of artistic creativity, and designs that bring an excitement the design world.  She has two blogs:  one for her fashion design illustrations (http://marksfashionbyevamarks.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/your-choice/) and the other for her shoe designs (http://marksshoesbyevamarks.wordpress.com/).  Eva’s artistic experience and intimate know-how have been incredibly helpful to me, I’ve benefitted tremendously from her thoughts and encouragement.

Eva currently has a participating challenge for blogging visitors, where some lucky visitors’ feedback will be used directly in a new fashion design she is creating.  A sort of “readers” design (your choices) and her fantastic artistic talent – a neat interactive creation.  She’s looking for input please checkout her blog post, “Your Choice” at http://marksfashionbyevamarks.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/your-choice/, but you better hurry because the clock is running out.

Second call-out is, Mamie from Artistic Imaginings who loves life – in fact she has a passion for it.  Mamie started her blog around the same time as I did and it’s always a treat when she posts – because it’s a true joy to see her creations.  She is a student whose life can be very demanding, but always find time to blog when she has a few minutes to breath!  One visit to her blog and you’ll  see someone who has an incredible passion and talent for creating extraordinary pieces of art, a great love of ballet and who brings her world to us through her engaging, but sensitive writing.

Mamie has a creative streak that I find very refreshing, I hope you take an opportunity to say hello to Mamie at http://artisticimaginings.wordpress.com/my-artwork/ – I’m very lucky to be able to call her a blogging friend.

    What a lovely way to share! I will have to check these out.

  5. Ah, thank you Mary for introducing these very talented people! Beautiful and kind gesture. Checking them out already! 🙂

    Thank you so much, Mary! You are always so thoughtful and generous, and it means so much. Everything you do gives me so much inspiration, and much of the time, your words are just what I need to give me a boost! You definitely made my day. 🙂

      Hi Mamie, thank you but you know I am a huge fan of your art and thought it would be neat to showcase your work for others to enjoy. It’s been a real treat to watch how your art has evolved these last couple of years, you have an amazing talent nothing seems to challenge you, rather you take your projects as an opportunity to grow. Love it – have a wonderful summer!

  7. What a wonderful gesture Mary! I’m flattered and very excited in the same time. You’re an exceptional human being who gives unconditionally and shares generously and today is just a day like that when you introduced a new concept.A sharing platform where we could meet and share, open up discussions and appreciate fellow bloggers and their work from a different perspective! A category named Sharing Platform. I call myself very lucky to have you as an extraordinary blogging friend with whom I can share my passions and love for art in any shape or form! Thank you Mary!

    • Mary says:

      Hi Eva, the pleasure is all mine – in a short time you have showered your generosity in advice and appreciation that has been invaluable to my fulfilling a desire to become a better artist. It takes a lot of time to comment so fully as you have, and that I can’t thank you enough. The least I can do is showcase your blog so others may enjoy the immense creativity in your designs – they show your experience as an artist who has control over her art, it’s awesome to see. We have a great community – a fantastic place to share, I’m glad you are part of it.

      • And I’m glad that you’re a part of it too! It has been ever since I know you a very enjoyable journey down the road of art and I’m for ever thankful also for your lovely comments and compliments regarding my work. WP is the best community to be a part of and the day I decided take part in it will always be my best decision I ever took! Have a great weekend Mary!

        • Mary says:

          Many people on WP hold the same sentiment about being part of this community – appreciate your thoughts! Have a wonderful Sunday – it’s raining here and we are thrilled to perhaps putting a bit water into the lakes and reservoirs to ease the drought ever so slightly.

  8. One of the reasons we start a blog is to share who we are. Then we meet other bloggers. Like you it took me a little bit of time to explore and found my bearings. Bloggers (at least the people I read) enjoy the connections that sometimes aren’t as meaningful in real life. I think that introducing others is a good way to show your appreciation for the work of others. In turn they will also showcase someone. In the end we end up learning a lot about others and the blogging that started as a personal activity becomes a dialogue platform.
    The shoe designs are very cool!

    • Mary says:

      Hi Evelyne, thank you – don’t you just love the shoe designs?! Being a blogger on WordPress has given me so much, from being introduced to some amazing creativity (whatever the form), to the awesome people behind these blogs. I love seeing others’ passions, it flames mine in return.
