kleenex moment !!!!

I was going to save this post for my up and coming 200 th post
but i will probably forget what i want to say so here goes ...

When i started this blog ( nearly a year ago ... another thing to celebrate )
i was so in awe of a lot of the other blogs and so many of the crafty people .
I was suffering terribly with self doubt and very nearly gave up crafting altogether .

I had been left to believe my work was of inferior quality
by somebody i then thought of as a friend !!
I was made to feel un welcome and that my own ideas were non existent !!

Then while flipping through a magazine i spotted Crafters companion !!
I then discovered a whole other world of friendly people with a love of crafting .
My first steps in to blogging were not very successful and i nearly gave up !!
I am so glad i had another go
that i became brave enough to leave a comment on someones blog ,
the feeling of being part of something when someone left me my first comment !!
Since then i have meet some lovely people
and i feel my crafting has grown
I am now confident in what i produce ... even my bunting ;0)
I know i have someone to turn to if i need a little reassurance
But mostly its just nice to be part of something !!

So heres a huge big thank you to all of you

I am so glad you made it happen, keep at it and know you are as good as everyone else. I hope I am still blogging after a year, well done.

A definite Kleenex moment!

I often think that just because one person doesn't like something, it doesn't mean someone else won't love it. I think patience and perseverance is key in anything we crafters do, and at nearly 200 posts - well there's your patience and perseverance for a start, not to mention your lovely bags and brooches :o)

Having confidence in what you make doesn't come naturally to many of us - blogging is a great way of getting new inspiration and an infinite supply of support!
