Take Note


Last month I was selected as one of Google's Blogs of Note. Not only did I not know what this meant at the time, but I also was oblivious to the stir it would cause! I've since connected with so many great people and have been introduced to several new blogs that provided delightful, not to mention needed, reprieve as I was swimming in boxes and charged with the exhausting task of unpacking. 

When fellow Blog of Note-er Natalie Walton asked to profile me for her fabulous blog, Daily Imprint, I jumped at the opportunity. By day she's a deputy editor at Australia's Real Living magazine and by night, blogger extraordinaire. Head over to learn a thing or two about me, but more importantly to fall in love with her scores of page, err, screen-turning interviews with artists, designers, photographers and all-around creatives!

That's exactly how I found your blog! Congratulations!

Delighted to read the part about MY mom and her influence on you. She was a great, modest woman, with much to offer her family! She was a true homemaker, but also a world traveler, making her quite the unique person -- far more interesting than she would have imagined herself, for sure! She was way ahead of her time in so many ways, but always thought of herself as just an ordinary person. She couldn't have been more wrong about anything in her life. Miss her terribly. Wish she were here now, as I am sure she would have been your very 1st visitor in Malaysia and been so proud of all YOU have done.
