A 1st Blog-a-versary thought or two ...

I read Jules blog for her anniversary and decided I wanted to take it a little further ... I hope ya'll will indulge me here. Think of this as my Blog Thanksgiving.

So it's my Blog's 1st Anniversary and I have some thoughts for you ladies, and since I'm not much in the way of showing my appreciation I hope you will all understand me saying this now. (and hopefully it won't be another year before I say it again :o)

I love all your blogs and looking at the beautiful stuff that you make and often invent. I don't often comment, but I always visit. I get inspired, frustrated and amazed all at the same time. But all in a good way. I hope to someday be half as good as many of you ladies as time goes on.

I've made some great friends through this blog, and hope to make many more as the years go by. *cough*Jules*cough*

A standout that I have to mention is the one that got me hooked again: Melissa at Doodlehead. I just happened to run across her blog one day on the 'net and saw one of her beautiful stitches and was obsessed, I sat and read every single one of her posts, pored over every picture of her xs, crochet and quilting (not in a stalker sorta way either MEG :o). You make some of the most incredible stitches, and you make it seem as easy as breathing. (I realize now that you are just THAT good. :o) I hadn't xstitched in many years so I didn't realize how much the patterns have changed, what is possible now. Thank you Melissa for inspiring me, and I'm sure, many others.

And thank you ladies for continuing to come back and advising, helping, challenging and enabling me to greater crafting heights. I've never known anyone crafty in my life, I was always the odd one out. This blog, and you ladies are an outlet that I never knew I needed. I wish to continue learning and making friends this next year. And hopefully, just maybe, I can finish one of these damned Mira's. heh

Thank you ladies!!

Very well said and thank you. I appreciate the fact that you HAVE taken the time to comment on my blog, and you answered one of my questions when I posted to your cab blog. You also inspire me and make me laugh sometimes. (I say amen to the Melissa comments, she was the first xstitch blog I read as well) So happy blog-aversary to you. Here's to many more blogs and fun times

Happy Anniversary. You've said everything that I felt when I posted about mine but you've said it so much better. Long may it continue. Take care. x

Happy blogiversary! It is so fabulous that we can all inspire each other. I don't have anuy crafty friends near me either, so it helps to have online crafter's to look to for advice and inspiration. Thanks for that!
