Hello my dear crafty friends!
First I want to say thank you to my new followers.
Also, I want to say thank you to those of you who are always stopping by to leave comments on my blog posts. That means so very much to me and I enjoy reading every one of them. Please know, when I am able, I do enjoy visiting your blogs and commenting on your lovely creations. When I am not able to comment, due to my hands being so painful at times, please know that I do stop by and enjoy looking.
Now, I have been thinking on something for awhile, as I wasn't sure what to do. Nothing new for me, I don't do well with decisions lately, ask my hubby, lol. Also, I am still fairly new to blogging, so still learning this stuff.
Anyway, what I have been thinking on is, should I post photos, say thank you, etc on my blog, when I win blog candy or when someone sends me a package of crafty goodies? I feel like I would be saying, look what I got and you didn't, to the people who see my blog post, as more than likely they would know that person too...but then again I want the person to know how thankful I am to get the goodies. I just want to do the right thing and let them know I appreciate it but at the same time, I don't want to come off as bragging about it...hope that makes sense. I do give credit to the person who gave it to me when I use something from them. I also send an email/message on their blog/Facebook, anyway I can to let the person know how much it means to me.
...Here's what I thought I should do...
I want to say thank you to all of you who have been so very sweet and generous sending me crafty goodies. It means the world to me and I treasure every piece!
Here are a few people that I want to thank.
Though there are a few others from challenge wins and blog hops.
- My dearest friend Mary at Amera Crafts -
I have known her for several years online. First with pixels and now she has me hooked on making card, lol. I so wish I could see her in person. She has sent me packages just because she wants me to have beautiful crafty goodies to create with. I feel like a child waiting to open my present when a package arrives from her. :) Thank you my dearest friend...your friendship means the world to me!
- I won blog candy from Mary H at Carolina Cards -
Mary sent me a lot of crafty goodies, more than she had shown on her blog candy photo. I treasure each piece and so enjoy creating with them. Thank you so very much Mary!
- Package from Audrey at Hippie Aud's -
I entered a challenge and won a stamp set. Audrey was so sweet that she sent me a lot of crafty goodies, along with the stamp set. I can't wait to start using all the beautiful things. Thank you so very much Audrey!
- I want to mention Lilian -
I am sorry I can't remember her blog address but I will find it. She posted a photo of rubber stamps on her bog and whoever asked for them first got them. I am happy to say that was me. Thank you so very much Lilian!
- I won a challenge at DL. ART -
Diana not only sent me what I won but she added some extra beautiful crafty goodies in the package. I can't wait to use them. Thank you so very much Diana!
Just please know that I appreciate everything, even a hello...as that let's me know that you thought of me. Thank you all so much for making my blog a happy place.
If you have read this far, thank you. :)
Crafty Hugs! xx
