I noticed the other day that this would be my 50th post and these flowers are to share with you to say "thank you". I was very hesitant about starting this blog back in March, lacking in confidence in lots of ways and I remember literally shaking when I wrote my first post. But this has been so much fun! I had no idea what I was letting myself in for - you ladies are lovely, kind, supportive, generous and inspiring - so again "Thank you".
It's quite something to check your emails and find messages from all over the world. Reading everyone's blogs has been so interesting, finding out snippets of each other's lives has been fascinating - we're not that different are we, no matter where we happen to be sitting on this globe?
I've written before about how writing this blog has made me see things differently, to appreciate everything around me and as a result I am a generally happier person too. I have found a renewed confidence in my crafting and that's all down to your support and encouragement. I am still amazed that these posts are being read and at your lovely comments. I love the way we all pick up on different things on each others posts to comment on and the way I try and build little pictures of you all in my mind based on what's been written.
As a thank you I would like to offer one of you some goodies - so there'll be a giveway (yippee I've always wanted to host a giveaway). Just leave a comment this week and all your names will be put into a hat next Monday. I will say now that I have no idea what I'm giving away (if the summer holidays go really badly it may be a daughter) all I can say is I will try my best to send the goodies off before the end of the summer holidays. So there you go, leave a comment - you never know what you might end up with!
Thanks again x
