improving on God given talent

I have some exciting news to share with you all today. First let me start by sharing some information that not many people know about. I love to draw in my 'spare' time (that is not very often, trust me). I have been drawing for about six, maybe seven years. I also love to write children's books and poems. I have not been published yet because I am very scared of rejection.
With all that being said, let me share my news. Yesterday, I received a call from a man about an art school. Normally, I would ignore this type of call, but I was out at the time and my husband, Daniel answered. The man asked Daniel if I liked to draw and of course he told him I did and then proceeded to tell the man how talented I am. (I do not think I am that good). Daniel told him what time I would be home and of course he called me back. I agreed to let him come here and talk with me and look at my work.
He came and must have really liked what he saw. He told me that I had a lot of artistic ability and that this course would improve on my talents that I naturally have. I enrolled in the class, which I will get 24 college credits for and hopefully find the confidence in myself that everyone else has in me.
My father in law has tried for many years to get me in this same course, so naturally he was tickled pink with the news. I am very thankful for the love and support I get from my family and friends.
I am so excited and so nervous at the same time. I hope everything goes well with this and I can become a very good artist. In time I want to illustrate and publish my very first children's book. We shall see, I suppose.

Hi Brandy, I'm here from your Aunt "Hopie's" blog. I started blogging the same way you did, by just hearing someone talk about it and then checking it out for myself.
I hope you enjoy it and your new art career.

Good Afternoon Brandy,
I am coming here by way of your "Aunt Hopie's" blog. I have only been blogging since October of last year. I have made alot of friends here in blogland. Your Aunt Hope and Miz Lib are my buddies. I try to get them both out of bed every morning to have coffee with me. No, they don't want to crawl out of that bed. LOL. So, I end up having coffee on my own. "CONGRATULATION'S" on the Award your received and also on the Art work you are doing. That is great news there. I will add you to my blogroll and will visit you everyday if that's okay. Take care my friend and have a great day. "WELCOME" to the wonderful world of blogging. I'm sure will you enjoy it. It will just take some time getting used to and learning all the things you can do with your blog. May God Bless You and Yours.
