2013 has been a very important year in my life. I had so many plans for this year with my work, so many dreams to fulfill. My first goal was to go to BMAC in Philadelphia to see it first hand because I wanted to see if I will do this show in 2014. My plans to show my work in bigger shows were very important but everything changed in April 5, 2013. I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and all my plans had to wait because I needed to take care of my health first.
Even though it was a scary journey, I have learned so much from it and it has given me so much in a positive way. I am blessed to have been able to go through it with the love and support of my family and friends, life has a wonderful way of letting you know that there are more important things in your life than you think.
This year also was full of beautiful surprises, I was able to see Bob Ebendorf again before my surgery and to spend some time with wonderful people was the best buster I could have. My book was finally announced and it will be published in February of 2014, I can not wait to have it in my hands!!!
My father in law came to visit us from Argentina and was here during my surgery and recovery. We enjoyed having him with us a lot. I also received the visit from my parents, I was so happy to see them.
All the love and support from family and friends from far away has been overwhelming, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
Yes, I will not be able to do the big shows in 2014 but I will have more time to be ready for them. I am happy to finally been able to do Fiesta Arts Fair here in my town in April, getting ready for this show will keep me busy.
I am blessed and thankful for everything that happen to me during this incredible year!! I am ready for 2014!
