This week I received word from an organization called Live Your Legend that my blog had won their 2016 blogging competition.
I was stunned, humbled, and so excited to win after spending so many months reading all the amazing participants’ work, and interacting with all the bloggers!
I started cartooning only three months ago and it’s been the most beautiful journey so far. I have found a way to express my deepest thoughts and small beautiful ideas in ways that I’ve never been able to with words.
I must extend a huge thanks to Live Your Legend CEO Chelsea Dinsmore and her team for this great opportunity, as well as co-winner Lindsay Stodden of Upside Down Sound. I will be heading to the World Domination Summit in Portland in August this year where there will be many more cartoons to come.
Thank you especially, to all my ‘readers’ (or viewers!), who have liked my work, supported my ideas, and been gracious enough to follow these early attempts to build The Happy Rat. It has been my dream for as long as I can remember to spend my days expressing my creative ideas, and now it’s becoming a reality with the help of so many kind people.
Wishing you all a wonderful week of happiness and exploration.
Sarah (aka The Happy Rat)
