2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for the sage atelier blog.

A screen capture from over a year ago, we’ve come a long way baby…

We noted that the data was slightly off, our most popular day was on December 26th with 1,286 hits for that day alone, thanks to Desire to Inspire’s Reading Guide 2011.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

a portrait of my sister

I was at the Colorado Spring’s Fine Art Center last night for a special event when I came upon a most fabulous portrait of a woman sitting. I thought, “how awesome would it be to have a portrait painted of oneself to be passed on?”

As a birthday gift this year I sent my sister this portrait of her. This 19 x 19 inch papier collé hangs in her living room. A fond memory.

If you were to have your portrait created: what artist would you choose, what style, medium, size, and so on ?
