I know that everyone is probably busy today and that everyone had this same idea for a post this time of year, but today I will give thanks.
I thank my husband for all of his support, help, and motivation to get me into the studio.
I thank my family for the help they’ve given me.

I thank all the inspiring artists out there who continue to make great work.
I thank all the bloggers who write the inspiring, funny, and informative blogs in my feedreader.
I thank the Creative House of Lancaster, Lancaster Designer Craftsmen, PA Society of Goldsmiths, Washington Guild of Goldsmiths, and SNAG for keeping me connected to my fellow artists and metalsmiths.
I thank all the galleries and jurors who juried me in to their exhibitions.

I thank all of my teachers who gave me direction and technical knowledge.
I thank all my suppliers for carrying what I need to make my art.
I am thankful that I can create and continue to have inspiration.
And most of all…. I am thankful for all of my regular, occasional, and new Hammermarks readers!
These thank yous are offered in no particular order and I am sure that this list hasn’t covered everybody that it should have. But I am thankful for all of the good things and good people that I have in this life and can only do my best to return the favor and offer what I can in the form of my artwork and words.
Once again, Thank You.
