December Daily Artjournal 2014: December 14th

Haven’t been drawing a Girl in quite a while, so it was about time again – so my December Daily Artjournal Page for December 14th turned out to be a little Winter Girl – love her with her cute Wool-Hat and her fluffy scarf … and lots of Glitter again – actually the first time […]

New Sketchbook I’m so in love with: Midori

If you’re taking my Sketch your Life Online Class, you know what my favourite Sketchbooks are … I just LOVE the Moleskine Sketchbooks & Watercolor Sketchbooks and the small Sketchbooks / Travel Sketchbooks by Hahnemühlen … but I just found a new Love … the Midori Travelers Notebook. Many people use it as a Planner […]

Bili's Welt - Looks great! I love leather Sketchbooks! They have such a special and vintage looking….love it ;)16. December 2014 – 05:57

Sabine Schneider - Oh, das ist ja toll. Kannst du mir verraten, wo du das tolle Sketchbook her hast. Das wäre supernett! Vielen Dank! Viele liebe Grüße, Sabine16. December 2014 – 07:20

Cre8tiveCre8tions - @Sabine – sehr gern – ich habe ihn hier bestellt: Ging super fix mit der Lieferung – war am nächsten Tag schon hier :)16. December 2014 – 15:02

Judi Pennington - I have one of these and love it! Which pen holder are you using on the cover? It doesn’t look like the metal midori pen holder that I saw on line. Yours appears to be leather. Thanks.16. December 2014 – 15:07

Dina Fettig - That’s a very nice sketchbook. I also love the Stillmann & Birn sketchbooks. Have you ever tried them? they are not as cool as this one but for example the Zeta is perfekt for watercolor. Its white and has a very smooth surface. I really like it and it is available in different formats (and I’m no retailer or something like that, just a fan :-)).17. December 2014 – 10:19

Judi Pennington - Okay thanks!17. December 2014 – 13:43

December Daily Artjournal 2014: December 11th

Is it just me or do the days even pass faster the closer we get to Christmas?!? Only 9 Days left and still so much to do, to organize, to buy, to wrap … but still – taking some time for “me” and my Art every Day helps me to stay relaxed and to keep […]

December Daily Artjournal 2014: December 8th

Today it’s all about yummy Christmas Cookies in my December Daily Artjournal. This year we’ve been trying out many different Christmas Cookie recipes already (have to make my new Kitchen Aid work for the Money I spend on it, right?!?) – so a Page about some Cookies was on top of my “want to do” […]

Cristỉña Gàbriella - Love it! Love it! YUM! I’m having a cup of coffee while watching this video! I would sure love to have some cookies along with the coffee, but I rather stay away of any processed sweeties like these goodies here! (glycemic level going up too fast!)9. December 2014 – 10:42

December Daily Artjournal 2014: December 2nd

In Germany it’s Tradition to put up the Christmas Tree pretty late in December (I remember from my Childhood putting them up on December 23rd and some Families even put it up on December 24th in the Morning …) – but over the past years we kind of broke with that Tradition because – let’s […]

Ruth Guthrie - Beautiful pages. I think most Americans put their trees up fairly early to enjoy them. (I think Halloween is TOO early though) When I lived in Germany as an exchange student my German parents put the tree up on Christmas Eve and lit candles on the tree. It was beautiful, but I’d rather enjoy it for several weeks.4. December 2014 – 00:41

Petra P - So beautiful! A white tree……..must be wonderful!4. December 2014 – 09:53

Cre8tiveCre8tions - Thanks so much @Felicity & @Jean4. December 2014 – 11:59

Rita - That was amazing. How long does it take you make a wonderful painting like that? You are such an inspiration to me. I am ill this year and so my Christmas will be very quiet and just watching your daily art makes me feel festive and happy. Thank you for so generously sharing your art with me (with us).6. December 2014 – 02:56

Cre8tiveCre8tions - @Rita – Thank you! Well – how long it takes me to finish a Page like that – it depends – this one maybe took 30 Minutes I think … usually my Paintings & Pages take between 30 Minutes and 3-4 hours (some with Girls on them) – depends on what Media I use and how detailed I work, how many Layers etc. – but usually not longer, since I’m quite an impatient person and I can’t work days on one Painting like some other Artists (which I admire – it’s just not my thing to create that long on one piece of art) :) Happy you enjoy my Pages and all the Best for you!!!7.

I might even incorporate my sketch your life class with my daily December art journal. 30. November 2014 – 11:18

Kristy Bazzanella - i am a therapist and am hoping to use the skills I am learning from you to help people heal. I loved last years December daily and bought bags yesterday so I can make one. I think I will bind it with rings so I can move the pages around.

Thank you so much for all that you do! It feeds my soul and refreshes my spirit .30. November 2014 – 16:52

Jade Scarlett - Ooooh! I’m so excited to follow your December journal. Thank you for sharing the process of making the cover, it’s super cute and you inspired me to get my sewing machine out and make a journal of my own. Awesome! Mega thanks :-) xo1. December 2014 – 01:03

The ART of saying THANK YOU 2.0

The ART of saying THANK YOU 2.0 or: when did saying Thank you get out of style?   To say it right in the beginning – this has turned into the longest Blogpost I’ve ever written – but I there are some things you just can’t express in only 3 sentences. Please take the time […]

»»» Read the whole Blogpost »»»

Bianca GD - Liebe Andrea

Schön hast du das geschrieben und ich glaube nicht, dass du deswegen Blogleser verlierst. Und falls doch…dann stellt sich ohnehin die Frage, ob ‘die’ es wert waren. Ich finde du hast vollkommen recht und auch solche Dinge sollen, müssen und dürfen gesagt sein.

Du machst so vieles für uns. Ich für mich kann sagen, dass du ein grosses Vorbild für mich bist. Ich liebe deine Werke, ich liebe deine Blogposts und ich freue mich wie ein kleines Kind, wenn ich etwas ‘for free’ von dir downloaden darf. Also an dieser Stelle nochmals ein GANZ HERZLICHES DANKESCHÖN für deine tolle Arbeit!!

Ich hoffe, dass das Verhalten einzelner (oder vieler??) nichts verändert und diejenigen, die alle deine Arbeiten und Mühen schätzen und lieben, deswegen nicht zurückstecken müssen….dass du auch weiterhin so tolle Sachen machst wie bis anhin. Lass dich nicht unterkriegen, du bist so eine tolle Person! Ich denke viele Leute meinen es auch gar nicht böse, sondern unterschätzen manchmal einfach den Aufwand, den du betreibst und auch den Wert eines ‘Thank you’. Ich für meinen Teil werde dir jedenfalls versprechen, dass ich künftig mehr daran danken werde ;)

Lass dich ganz doll drücken und es soll noch einmal gesagt sein….du bist eine super Person, ein grosses Vorbild und ich möchte dich und deine Werke in meinem Alltag nicht mehr missen!!
big hug!28. November 2014 – 14:58

Jade Scarlett Harlow - I don’t feel that you ruined it at all Andrea . I love that your blog is positive and uplifting and all around awesome and I look forward to reading it. It doesn’t change my opinion the fact that you took the time to share how you feel with us. I still see this wonderful place you created as somwhere I always want to be. Yes, I’m guilty of not commenting much, and “liking” majority of the time. So thank you for staring those feelings with us. Thank you for opening up and and showing us how hurtful it is to go unappreciated. Thank you for bringing this to our attention so that we may be more mindful in the future. Thank you for trusting that we would completely understand where you coming from. And most of all, thank you for all the amazing stuff you so generously share with us. And above all, thank you for being YOU !28. November 2014 – 15:43

Eva Glamaris Cruz Pena - Andrea Gomoll: Thanks so much for sharing your heart. I feel the world is moving so fast these days, the things that used to be common courtesies are being forgotten. The saddest thing is that our young ones are growing up without knowing courtesies exist :-( I appreciate you for bringing it up to our attention. And I am so grateful for you. I found you at time in my life where I needed to awaken my creativity and your personality and your art spoke to me. I don’t ever purchase things from overseas and your Facecinating Girls classes were the first purchase. My youngest daughter and I absolutely love the classes and the tutorials on youtube. We just watched the owl one last night and noticed there was a new song (we have our faves from the other tuts). We watch them just for fun. So, thank you, for your time and your effort and for kind heart! I know that when we say yes to something we are saying No to something or someone else. Thank you for saying yes to your readers. Know that you are loved in our family. I hope your heart is uplifted by those who love you and care deeply about you. Merry Christmas! God Bless You!28. November 2014 – 15:45

Sharon Staples - Andrea, thank you for your post-a great reminder! I am retired and just learning and enjoying mixed media art. I learn so much by following tons of wonderful art blogs. I use feedly to organize them in folders and that does not let me leave comments unless I go to the artist’s blog. I am so thankful though, for all your wonderful posts though!28. November 2014 – 15:51

Joy - You are so right. Sometimes I don’t say thank you like I should. I try to but somehow it doesn’t happen all the time. I’m so glad you were thoughtful enough to share your frustration with us. Some people don’t and they just keep getting frustrated and get burned out. That doesn’t give us a chance to correct the problem. And I for one want to know if there is a problem I can correct. See, it’s telling people that is the loving thing to do. It gives everyone a chance to make each other happy. So let me say now how thankful I am for the work you do. It inspires me, it amuses me, and it just makes me happy. Thank you for this post that lovingly reminds me what is important for me to do. Now I am inspired to say thank you from here on to all of those on line I love to see and hear. So that I may just a little return the joy that I receive. Andrea you are a wonderful person, please don’t ever let the bad manners of others take you away from the rest of us, who are blessed by you.28. November 2014 – 17:20

Chris - Andrea, please never take for granted that because I do not say thank you on a blog post or anywhere online that I am not grateful. I am so VERY grateful to you for the time, work and effort that give. You are such an inspiration and I have learned so much from your videos and paid classes. As a shall we say in the more mature age category and a very private person I do take care and precaution as to where I share myself online. Perhaps it would be wise to devise a personal plan to practice self care and take regular time out and balance your personal and private life with your business life. I would sincerely hope you do not get to a point where you become so disillusioned that you stop giving. I do know what that feels like.
Take care of your precious self and thank you, thank you, thank you.28. November 2014 – 23:23

Kay Zeeh - Andrea, you are right. I’m one of those people who downloaded the owl, and I planned to get back to you to thank you, but hadn’t done so yet. It is adorable. You give so much of yourself. I purchased the Facecinating Girls class but have also watched a lot of your other videos, learned so much and felt so inspired! You’re like a good friend I’ve never met. I agree with Chris’ comment above – make sure you spend time with your hubby and relaxing or you will get burned out, and none of us want that to happen. You are a treasure!29. November 2014 – 01:16

jean sandford - Thanks Andrea,for the reminder,i never comment on blogs,you have made me think perhappes I should ,the thing is I never know what to say,so thanks Andrea for spurring me on to try art journaling and sketching,i loved your wallpaper and have it sitting on my desktop,and will put it on my phone when I have the time,im also taking your sketching class which I really enjoy
Jean s29. November 2014 – 06:40

Emilia - Andrea, I read your blog post and I really agree with what you have shared. I admire you for sharing good quality posts, videos and great online classes. I have taken one of your classes and I have two more classes in my wishlist. Thanks for sharing great mixed media resources, your artwork is inspiring!29. November 2014 – 11:41

Ruth Guthrie - Andrea, you hit this spot on. I was thinking the EXCACT same thing. How I know that you spend hours on these beautiful lessons and freebies and give from your heart. I too was shocked to see three comments. So many have become insensitive to feelings because of computers etc
I’ve been cursed at and called names on Facebook because I asked a question on Food Network. Really? Complete strangers insult others with no thought for hurting others. Now I’m careful to keep my options to my own FB page where I can delete comments lol.
Don’t lose heart. You touch many people with your soul and kindness. You will be blessed regardless.29. November 2014 – 14:25

December Daily Artjournal 2014: The Journal » Creative Creations by Andrea Gomoll - […] I wanted to send a big THANK YOU to those of you who left so lovely Comments on my last Blogpost (here) and to all of you who send eMails or Messages … it really makes me happy to see that so many […]30.

Gabriele Burgess - Yes, we all needed this. A little extra awareness of the gifts we receive is a good thing. Thank you.30. November 2014 – 02:22

Debbie Smetherham - Thank you for being so honest and open about this issue – I too am guilty of rarely commenting on blogs and videos that I enjoy. I have been following your blog for a while and always enjoy your work. I follow blogs in Feedly so unless I click to visit the blog, I can’t comment. I just don’t bother most of the time, and your article made me realise that I should. If you lose any followers because of your honesty then good riddance! All the best to you and your family in the upcoming holiday season.
Love Debbie from Perth, Australia x30. November 2014 – 05:18

Nadine Todd Hovde - I know I don’t comment often and I know I should do it more often. I am sorry that I don’t but I do appreciate everything you do and I’m very grateful. You are one of the major reasons I got into mixed media art and I can’t thank you enough for inspiring me to get back into the art community that I have left so long ago in my younger days. So I will say this now thank you for your hard work and dedication, thank you for your honesty, thank you for the beauty that you show us each and everyday, thank you for the kindness and the kindness in your heart to share your wonderful world. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.30. November 2014 – 05:18

Jessica Kaschig - Liebe Andrea,

absolut richtig! Ich fühl mich wie eine Oma bei dem Gedanken, dass in Zeiten von Social und Mobile Web der gute Anstand und der gesunde Menschenverstand viel zu oft auf der Strecke bleiben … aber so ist es ja leider.

Aber leider ertappe ich mich selbst auch dabei, dass das schnelle “Vorbeihuschen” zwischendurch im Feedreader so herrlich einfach ist, aber das Kommentieren dabei auf der Strecke bleibt.

Wobei ich auch noch einen kleinen Unterschied sehe zw. dem einfachen Lesen eines Blog-Beitrags (der mich unterhält und/oder inspirirert) und dem wirklichen “Mitnehmen” von Content – wenn ich was downloade oder eine Anleitung/Rezept nutze. Dann ist ein “Danke” schlicht das einzig richtige! Alles andere ist schlechtes Benehmen.

Vielen Dank für deine ehrlichen Worte an dieseer Stelle und für all das, was du generell teilst!

LG, Jessica30. November 2014 – 09:16

Felicity - Andrea, I can’t say thank you enough for what you wrote. Amen. You are very courageous in sharing your heart with the world and I thank you so much. I read your blog all the time, taken quiet a few of your classes and loved it all. I keep coming back. I generally sit her in bed when kids have gone to bed or read/watch something in drips and draps while I prepare dinner. I am a ‘shy’ person on the Internet and in real life and never know what to say, but now I know. It’s a simply thank you just as I am teaching my young children.
Ps I was catching up on your blog,posts and saw this reference to this post in your daily December, now I will go back and finish catching up on your wonderful inspiring art and look at the wall paper posts!! 30. November 2014 – 11:15

Minerva - Andrea, I have to applaud you for writing this! I’ve felt exactly the same and i thought it was just me not being used to “online” etiquette .. i’ve discovered you recently and i love your videos and now, from this post i can confidently say i love who you are as a person too..! thank you for all that you …i cant wait to learn more from you on youtube & lifebook..! happy holidays..! :))1. December 2014 – 12:27

Julia Sears Osterc - Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I have never been to your blog before nor downloaded anything. Thankfully, someone shared this post on facebook and I followed it here. :) You expressed so well what so many of us online bloggers and artists probably feel, at least I know I do. I’m a beginner with very few followers and likes so I really tend to wonder sometimes if the time I invest is well spent. The few comments and bits of feedback I have gotten have made a HUGE difference to me and encourage and inspire me to continue. I make art for my soul, but the time it takes to scan and share and blog is way more than I initially realized. I enjoy it as well, but it is helpful to know if/when others actually see it. Thanks again for voicing this. :)1. December 2014 – 18:43

Lynn - I didn’t download your free wall paper, but I am a student in one of your classes and I an a recipient of you blog, which I enjoy reading. Thank you Andrea for writing this post. It has been thought provoking for me. I very rarely comment on any blog posts. Firstly my main reason is that I think I don’t have anything valuable to add or say. Secondly I feel am too busy. In actuality neither are true! Saying thank you is about honouring generosity and is a respectful thing to.

I am very much enjoying the class that I am enrolled in, it is very obvious to me that you have a passion for what you do, you share your knowledge in a generous, caring manner. Thank you!1. December 2014 – 19:08

Kat Rogers - I think I often don’t comment on things partly because:
1. A lot of times I’m so slow to find things, they were posts from three years ago, LOL
2. More seriously, subconsciously I may be thinking “why would this talented, successful artist care what I think, anyway? I’m, like, nobody…

But I now know that it does make a difference, and I intend to be more expressive in the future!

And I’ll just throw in a pet peeve on a similar subject: the correct response to ‘thank you” is not “no problem” as a default, it’s “you’re welcome”!2. December 2014 – 02:15

Welcome to my Studio: Video-Newsletter 1

I SUCK when it comes to writing & sending Newsletters … yes I do – I admit it … that’s why I came up with this fun idea – a Video Newsletter (sort of … or vlog or whatever you wanna call it). I think it’s so much more fun & way more personal and […]

Sandy - Andrea,
Thanks for the video newsletter. It was so nice to see you. I’m used it seeing your hands, but it’s nice to see your face too! By the way… Maybe burlap is the word you are looking for? :)24. November 2014 – 21:50

Julie Davies - HI Andrea – Loved the video its so nice so see who I send and receive such lovely penpal swaps and goodies from. Cant wait for your next videos xxx24. November 2014 – 22:53

Cre8tiveCre8tions - @Sandy – thanks – happy you enjoy the Video and seing my face and not only my hands all the time *lol* :) And yes – exactly – Burlap was the word I was looking for … argh *lol* … the word was just gone that minute … :)24. November 2014 – 23:30

Ruth Guthrie - Love this. I’m ordering the Baken Mit Love from Amazon soon!!25. November 2014 – 01:43

Steph - love this idea, thank you so much for all the work you put into this. looking forward to the next one.25. November 2014 – 13:17

Monica Blitger - Great idea with a video newsletter. Allthough I think a bit shorter would be preferable. Sorry.. It’s not because I did’nt enjoy your video. But it can be diffocult to sprnd almost one hour being on-line without doing other things…lol…… Multitasking…hm hm25. November 2014 – 16:41

Emilia Gennaio - I love video newsletter, I prefer them to the written ones. However, I think a 15 min video will be the perfect length.29. November 2014 – 10:46

December Daily Artjournal 2014: The Journal » Creative Creations by Andrea Gomoll - […] – I already mentioned that in my Video Newsletter – I will not (like last year) be able to share a Video of my Pages each & every Day […]30. November 2014 – 01:12

angiesuez - I really enjoyed this format. It was great to see what is inspiring you. I am glad I’m not the only one who buys things because they are cute! Updates on things you are working on and things that inspire you on a monthly basis would be great.30. November 2014 – 23:46

Kat Rogers - I listened/watched as I was working on my art…it made me feel cozy, like I was at a cafe with you or something….also, when I watch your art vids, I always think what lovely hands you have! Those manicures, the polish, the rings….now I know I can never be an art maven, my nails are terrible, ha ha!2. December 2014 – 02:23
