This was my first attempt at a blog hop....what fun! and so glad my first was celebrating Michele's 5th anniversary of the Quilting Gallery Blog.
I am so happy that a few hoppers like my blog enough to hop on board and follow along with me. It gives me a warm fuzzy. I feel validated.. and that's why we do this, right?? I hoped when I started, that I would touch a nerve with my experiences and observations. I hoped that maybe I might even make a difference in someone's life. You just never know where your lifeline will come from. For me, the wonderful comments left for me have meant so much. They have given me the strength and encouragement to keep peeling back the layers and let you see who I am and what I do.
So thank you Michele for the opportunity to celebrate with you, grow as a blogger, a quilter, a mixed media artist, and a person. . . . and to meet some really wonderful people that I am sure I will get to know better. With this experience, I have found blogs of interest that I never would have found any other way, met people I never would have, been shown kindness and appreciation from people I never thought I'd meet.. I am honored that you all want to be part of my crazy life...
