Art, Friendships, Blogging....These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things

Marti GaraughtyIt has taken me two years to give my friend a gift, but finally Tatiana has joined Active Rain. And now our community has gained another talented artist. When you look at her work along with mARTi's, you'll see why I saw a connection between them and wanted this very talented and accomplished marketer to join.

Tatiana home with potteryA couple a years ago, I was drawn to mARTi's work, especially his violin. Besides being a talented ceramic artist, Tatiana is also a musician. She played the cello for many years and held chamber music concerts in her historic church/gallery/studio in Maryland. When she moved to New Mexico, she re-established her studio and has built her business with high-profile clients like Gump's. Isn't this one sexy website?

Book CoverWhat I love best about this is the connections. They grow like a tapestry, weaving lines between people who might otherwise never have met. I found Marti Garaughty because he was on Active Rain, and immediately liked his work. A couple of years later when I was ready for a book cover, I knew he was the one to create an extraordinary image. Marti worked with me and my publisher, Peg Silloway, to make the book everything I wanted.

Eloise GiftI met Tatiana through a friend in Baltimore who thought we would work well together, and thus began first a business relationship and then a personal friendship. We sold her church at auction but we've stayed close after her move to New Mexico. And then Eloise Gift's thread became part of our tapestry when she went into Tatiana's gallery and found a connection through Active Rain back to Baltimore. 

Look at all this wonderful talent coming together in one virtual place. Connections like these are why being part of Active Rain is one of my favorite things!

Marti is a great guy Margaret. He is always willing to help. He made a very nice looking blog header for my outside blog that looks fantastic. Sounds like Tatiana has some good talent as well.

Hi Margaret...Nice Tribute to your friends, that's what life is really all about, the people we touch on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, and the love and joy great relationships bring.

Cheers, I am almost finished reading your Book, maybe tonight. I've been cherishing it by limiting my reading to one chapter at a time...thanks for writing your story and sharing your Love of Real Estate and the people you help along the way :O)
