At the risk of sounding maudlin here (don't you just love that word?!)... I need to say something about blogging and how very blessed I feel to have this blogging community. There are a handful of you out there, and you know who you are, who have just made this the loveliest year for me. I love visiting your sites, seeing what you've made and what you have to say, and I'm constantly delighted and humbled by the beautiful comments you leave here.
I keep hearing from people how narcissistic blogging is... but I don't see it. I see kindness and generosity, enquiry and thoughtfulness, endeavour and achievement. So, what I'd like to say is... thank you :)
I received the loveliest gift today in the mail. Gina from Clutterpunk sent me a hand-stamped and sewn notebook, a gorgeous thrifted brooch and a handmade felted brooch. Aren't they amazing? I love them all, but that felted brooch is just divine. Isn't she a good egg? Thank you Gina!
