Updates and some fun news!

Good morning. :) Just popping in to say "hi" before the day gets too busy.

How are you? How has your week been? If I'm being honest my week has been pretty difficult. I won't go into too much detail, but about two weeks ago I started experiencing an excruciating nerve pain on the left side of my face and jaw. I'm just now finding some relief due to some IV steroids I've been on the last few days. Hope I don't come out of this looking like a body builder! Ha, ha.

Anyways, just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all of you and how extremely honored I feel to be able to feature the work of so many gifted artists, photographers, and designers. I hope you're enjoying the new format of Simply Hue as much as I am. :) Thanks so much for you input for the artists and for being such a sweet and supportive group. xo

If you missed the post a couple of days ago about a few updates, the Flickr Group, Simply Hue Creative Challenge, is going strong! If you would like to join in for a weekly artistic challenge and have a place to post your work (doesn't have to be perfect and polished, by the way), please join in. :)

Have a great new day!

P.S. Just received some good news! My pink and white umbrella photo (above) was included for the Editors Picks page in Lonny Magazine. Since I have no idea how to download it for you to see, here's a link for you to follow (it's in the left lower corner). Lonny Magazine Editor Picks, page 21.

Update: A wonderful reader and amazing photographer, Silvana, from Leefee Studio sent me an email to let me know how to do a screen shot so you can see the magazine layout. Thanks so much, Silvana! :)

    Sorry to hear you are having health problems and I hope you get some answers/relief soon. And let me just tell you that this JJ song is one of my very, very favorites, love it! Makes me happy every time I visit your blog! :)

  3. Vicki, I wish you a full recovery. I'm so sorry you're going through this. Hope you feel much better soon. Congratulations on the Lonny feature! Yay! ***By the way, a great way to capture all or any part of a web page, PDF, or screenshot is to use a free app called Jing. :)
