Well, my little blog is a year old this week.
It is has been a fun year of learning and growing and much more. I went into this blindly not knowing much about blogging at all. I didn’t even subscribe to blogs before I started mine! I am so grateful for all of you who humor me by reading my blog and leaving such wonderfully sweet comments. It is fun to have some fuel to drive my passion and to share my creations with people who can appreciate a good bargain and a great transformation! It is a great creative outlet for me, which helps keep me sane. (I use the term sane very loosely) If I can inspire a few of you along the way to create a warm and inviting home for you and your family…even better!! That is the goal. :)
I have also learned so much from other blogs. There is so much great inspiration and encouragement out there and I am grateful for the blog friends I have encountered along the way.
One thing I have learned is to stay true to myself. It is hard to not compare ourselves to others. One of my favorite quotes is by Judy Garland… "Always be a first rate version of yourself, instead of a second rate version of someone else.” Love this. It’s so true. If I am not my authentic self then no one else ever will be…only one of me will ever exist.
Thanks for hanging out with me a bit during this little journey.
So if you keep reading my rambling posts, and probably confusing tips and tutorials… I will keep writing them! ~I may even keep writing them even if you don’t read them. I will just pretend you all tried to comment but there was some sort of Blogger error that didn’t allow you too. ;)~
I didn’t quite accomplish all I wanted in this first year, but that is OK. I have some new ideas for my blog and things I would like to do in the future.
I would love to know what *y’all would be interested in seeing…
What kind of posts of mine do you like best?
More personal stuff?
I would love to hear your feedback!! Again, if you don’t give me any feedback, I will just pretend you tried to and couldn’t for some technical reason like an overload of too many comments. ;)
Also…What do you think of the new look?! I. LOVE. IT. It feels so fresh and open and just lovely. By the way, The Blog Fairy is awesome to work with and as you can see, very talented :)
P.S. To show my love and appreciation for my wonderful readers I may be having my very first giveaway! Ahhh! What do ya think?
*I lived in Texas for two years so I can say y’all. ;)
