You guys are pretty stinkin' wonderful

I just wanted to take a minute and talk about how awesome you guys are. No, really!

I really started to get more into blogging this past February and man has it been an exciting journey. Some days, I'm tired or I question if people even want to read my ramblings at all, and then I get an awesome email in my inbox telling me that you were inspired by one of my projects or one of my goofy stories, and it encourages me to continue. While I've never met most of you in person (except of course my husband who started following my blog at the beginning because that's pretty much a requirement of being married to me I think), I've been amazed at how encouraging and uplifting the craft community is.

I don't have the best pictures or the best projects, I don't post every day, I'm terrible at staying up with all of the trends out there in blogland, I have an inbox full of 39 emails that I haven't responded to yet (yes, I counted, and I'm sorry if you're one of the 39!), and I have no sponsors offering awesome giveaways. Yet you guys still read my blog and send me sweet emails and comments.

So thank you for reading and supporting me, you guys rock! If I was a big, famous blogger, I would give you each a Silhouette or something equally as awesome. Unfortunately, all I can offer is a big ol' cyber hug. And for those of you who don't like to be touched, high five!

While I may never meet any of you in person, I really appreciate you. You make me want to continue blogging and sharing my life with you. Thanks for caring :)

And on a completely unrelated, somewhat random side note, I'm psyched to tell you that I'm going to be guest posting over at Tatertots and Jello tomorrow!! 

I keep pinching myself to see if I'm dreaming. Here's a little sneak peek at what I'm sharing:

Ooh, how very vague and unhelpful of me!

I got into the fall spirit with this project - fall is my favorite! (I channeled a little Elf there haha)

Anyway, I hope you'll come visit and check out my project and leave lots of sweet comments so I don't look like a complete loser or anything ;)


  1. Oh how sweet! I love a good virtual hug :)
    LOVE Elf!!!

  2. Jen I found your blog and I couldnt leave. You have inspired me and I very much enjoy reading your posts. Thanks for the hug and dont worry about posting all the time , its quality over quantity that counts. Have a lovely day, Sarah x

  3. I will take the virtual hug and return one right back to you! Keep up the great work. I love your ramblings :)

  4. Can't wait to see, love those colorful buttons!

  5. Hugs right back at ya! I love reading your stories and seeing your creative projects!

  6. If I don't follow I may have to start doing my own laundry again....that's not acceptable.

  7. thanks, feels good to be hugged! :-) don´t need more to stay and hang around here with you...

  8. Your new mystery project gives me the heebie jeebies

  9. @Shannon - knowing your hated of buttons this is your worst nightmare! Don't worry, I made you one to match Haley :)
