One of the best thing about having the tierneycreates blog for the past 5 years is connecting with other crafters, makers, artists around the world.
One of those people is Pennsylvania based artist extraordinaire, Claudia McGill. She is one of those “Renaissance Women” whose dabbles successfully in many arts – writing, painting, drawing, illustrations, poetry, ceramics/pottery and collage.
She has two blogs (that I know of, maybe she has more, ha!) – one for her art and one for her poetry:
A couple days ago, I was surprised in the mail with a lovely holiday card and some some little pieces of her art!
I know there are new bloggers now following my blog that might be looking for other maker blogs to follow and blogging communities to connect with, so I plan in the future to share more about the blogs I follow to help connect anyone interested.
Over the years, I’ve met so many other bloggers through following and commenting on blogs that capture my interest.
I’ve always fantasized about writing poetry and had dabbled but never had the confidence to share any of my writings.
In addition to Claudia’s blogs, I also follow other “artist poets” such as South African based artist and poet, Mariss Stevens. She shares her beautiful art quilts with accompanying poems!
You can check out her amazing art quilts and poetry on her blog:
