We Can Do This Together
Join the movement with Where Women Create. TOGETHER, whether we create with our hands or offer a helping hand, each of us can make a difference for all of us . . . WHAT IS IMPORTANT is that we work together, to help each other, support each other, promote each other, reach out to each other . . . so that we can each/all be a true success story . . . however you define it.
Wear the button, carry the bag, display the icon, reach out every day to promote a friend . . . we can do this . . . together.
I have added three links (see below) from the latest issue of Where Women Create magazine - to share and inspire. The heartfelt quotes after each entry have been provided by the extraordinary artists themselves. My challenge to you, is to share three other talented friends' or colleagues' works of art with everyone that you know.
"I may not have gone where I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up where I intended to be."
