My Blog Turning 1

Special dedication
to all friends:
Turning 1
and embracing the future with thankfulness.

Today, mark my 1st anniversary in blogging.
I signed up and open for a blog in July 2008 and I only officially started blogging on 28th August 2008. that day. Since then, I never look back.
I really love blogging but somehow blogging takes up a lot of my personal quality time.
Thus, if you noticed, I have slowed done gradually. As for today, I cancelled my workshop to concentrate blogging and commenting.

I have learned and made a lot of friends through blogging. Without this platform, may be I am still in my old self. (I have the courage to create almost every times, every where and everyday!)
Thank you to all friends who continue dropping by and giving constructive encouragements to me.
It's so important for me and I have seen myself grown so much. Thank you.

Yes, thank you for those who are polite and coming back for support.
Those that follow do understand. I am marrying both the concept and various techniques together.
So come to the conclusion, I must stick to one or two styles that I am most comfortable with.

I have so many plans in mind, I have spoken to a few friends with the same souls. I am achieving my dream slowly. I am so happy. For this reason, I will spend more time working on my personal project.

Now is the time for thanks giving and special thanks to:
God, my heavenly father of omnipotent!
He has blessed the gift of creating to me.
I will continue to use this gift to glorify him:)

Kak Emila, my artist blogger friend, she is my inspiration to creating.
I have learned some illustration tips from her.

Ms Yong, an entrepreneur of baby retail business.
She shares with me her business strategies and I am looking forward to working with her.

Ms. Wong, my contractor friend, she is a very helpful person.
She advises me on the matter of budgeting and management.

Hui Ling, my friend and loyal customer.
She always gives me the best ideas to create.

Owl Eng, my talented artist friend.
She is very positive and always giving me thumb up positive comments.
Parisa Mahmoudi, my friendly artist friend from Iran.
She always gives me the support and cheers to be positive.

My Cactus Monday & Illustration Friday friends.
They always inspire me to do better and better, especially to those that have given me awards. ( I will post the outstanding awards soon)
BloggerUited's friends.
They are a group of young, dynamic, creative, funny and beautiful people that make my days extra happy. I love reading their entries.

My Entrecard's friends.
Their endless support to drop EC to my blog with great commitment.

Everyone that have dropped by.
I hope I don't miss anyone and I promise & pray that the content of my blog is pleasing to those that love art.
Thank you once again.
Yoon See

Don't forget to follow my favourite top ten posts that I will post up shortly.

Congratulations on turning 1, Yoon See! You are a generous soul...and I know you will go long and far creating your wonderful work for all of us. I agree that the blogging takes up personal time, and so it is a constant battle to balance posting time and creating time..I cheer you for staying focused on your goals and enjoying all of it along the way!

Hello Yoon See - a happy first anniversary! I really liked your illustration of "turning" one - very clever! Yes, isn't blogging fantastic - I am slowly moving from left brain (25 years in the IT industry) to right brain and learning to express myself through creating things - I am having so much fun in the process and feel like I am giving birth to "another me" - so I think I understand some of your feelings! I also loved your aroma posts below - perfume and lemon - some of my favourite smells.
