Reaching Out to Grow



Hello friends! August is finally here, and I know it promises a lot of wonderful things for us! You're probably wondering why I sound so excited? Well, because I am! This month will mark a whole new chapter for my beloved blog, as I'm reaching further out and letting my branches grow...Yes, because as of today Pencils and Fireflies will officially be hosting its sponsor friends for the first time! If you take a look on the right sidebar, you'll see a line of my fabulous friends who are now sponsoring the blog. Here they are in closer looks...please click on each one to be transported to their link!


As some of you probably already know, art has saved me. It pulled me out from one of the darkest periods of my life and put me back on track. So I'm now dedicating this blog to art, as a special place to share art in all forms, from all across the world and throughout history. To show how much it has influenced our lives in so many ways. By reaching out and making room for sponspors, I hope we could fly and embark on a new adventure together! :)

I will be featuring all sponsors here throughout August, so please come back to find out more about each one. If you're interested to join our circle and would like to become a sponsor too, just send me a line and we'll work something out.

I hope you find plenty of creativity and artistic encounters today...here's to art and all the goodness it's brought to the world!

With love,
PS: I will be having a giveaway in a couple of days...be sure to come back and join in the fun! oxox

  13. You are full of surprises, Amalia! And in everything you do, one can feel your specific style - of writing, drawing and living! I'll come here in August with much curiosity, for I'm eager to get closer to the world of these wonderful artists - "old" and "new" (to me)!
    I've missed the special post in June(I had returned from my trip just then). I understand every word you've written. How nice that you have overcome that "dark" period in your life!
    You are blessed with your talent and art will be always your harbour... And friend... Hugs!!xox
