A little present came in the mail for me recently..
It had the sweetest little handmade card as well,
Inside is this beautiful sun catcher, that I put in my studio.
Blogging opens up many windows into people’s lives. They may be small windows, even window shopping, like trolling DIY’ers and crafters. But sometimes the window’s are a little larger, and what you write actually touches someone.
A girl who grew up in the same neighborhood as I did, but whom I had not seen in probably 20 years (god I feel old, but whatevs), has been following my blog and this is what she what she wrote to me. I’ve asked Tina if it was ok to share this and she said it was.
Sometimes when I put what I make and do out there, it feels a bit like narcissism, coupled with the fear no one will like what I’ve made or have to say. Then I get a comment from a new or frequent reader, or I get something like this in the mail and I know someone was touched, and it makes the risk of putting myself out there totally worth it.
