I am so happy, that's such a good feeling at the start of 2010 ;-)) The reasons are these;
First of all there is the fact that Roberta is nr 100 to follow this blog. Welcome Roberta! Go and look for the cats that pop-up here and there on her blog ;-)
I must apologise for not welcoming all previous followers, so WELCOME to everybody who comes to visit here!!! But it feels a bit ambivilant to celebrate this number. On one hand; this blog is not about numbers, I am not out here to get as much followers as possible. At some communities (Hyves, facebook etc.) it seems to be all about the number of friends you have; the more the better and I hate that, I realy do! On the other hand it is nice to notice that you folks out there find my blog nice enough to follow. It feels like some sort of confirmation that the things I make have some quality and are worth to look at. It boosts my confidence and makes me want to continue on this path of quality rather than quantity, so thank you all.
The second reason to do a dance and shout Hurray! is Madelva. The editor of Miniaturas asked me late 2009 if they could do some articles about my miniatures. And yesterday I got the first issue's in wich they were posted!!! It showed again what a loss it is that this magazine is hard to get by in the Netherlands. Great pictures and I feel proud to be seen next to some awsome artists that are featured.
They did one about the kitchen of Nolda's house. I made drawings of the cabinets and explained how it was build up. The article looks great! I hope it will inspire.
The second one they did was about the interiour of the house itself. Lots and lots of pics, spread out over several pages. It is so weird to see your own work like this but it makes me so proud as well!!! Is there any better way to start 2010!?
