Where Women Create

Wow! I won a "Where Women Create" tote bag and designer pen from Sandra Evertson's giveaway. I'm excited!

Where Women Create began its life as a book, by Jo Packham, which then became a website and gave birth to a quarterly magazine of the same name. They also have a shop, a newsletter and a "Silver Suitcase Society." The site is still under construction and due to go live soon.

SANDRA EVERTSON

If you haven't visited her blog yet, you're missing a magical ride into her world where simple things take on extraordinary lives. She's a gifted storyteller who captures your attention from her first word, and slowly drops her magic bit by bit, drawing you into her world of possibilities, daring you to stretch your imagination until you become one of her characters, forgetting that you began your journey as an onlooker.

Sandra is a talented artist and writer, and has quite a following. She began blogging in 2007, has over 153,000 hits, and posts an average of four times a month. In addition to that, her average comments per post are over 300! How does she do that? What lures people to post comments? I don't have the answer, but she has the gift of the answer.

Feeling thankful.

I do know Sandra Evertson and she is fantastic! And after just learning about your blog and taking a quick tour, I'd say you're fantastic, too! I love the little pillow wreath and your "Ball of Confusion" piece.
