One Year of Blogging

wordpressGuess what?!

Today is the one year anniversary of the day I started Make Something Mondays! YAY!  Thank you, to my followers, for making my first year of blogging a great one!

What I’ve learned:

  • I am more crafty than I was a year ago– Seriously, I was WAAAAAAY more artsy than crafty. Now I can add another skill to my list.
  • You truly have to love what you choose to blog about– I could talk about art for hours, maybe even days, without running out of steam. People become interested in what you are talking about if you are passionate.
  • You are who you hang with– For those of you who blog, you know that you need to attract the right people and those people can really teach you something.
  • “Patience is a virtue”– My parents told me this my whole life, literally. They probably told me this before I could even talk. Success doesn’t happen over night and sometimes it is good that it takes a while. If you were that good then, you would have nothing to work toward.
  • It is a give and take relationship– If you give them something good then they give you a response.
  • Take an interest in your followers– I’m serious! There are a ton of interesting people out there and I’ve found many of them through blogging. I’ve formed some great relationships with my followers. You are all wonderful!

    • As a clarification…the glasses were my favorite to look at when they were done but the hula hoop was my favorite to watch you make : ) I miss sleeping over on Saturdays and watching you make things on Sundays after brunch at ENP. Reminiscing. It’s your fault…you opened the flood gates. Growing up = TRAP!

  1. Congratulations!
    I can’t believe it’s been only a year. I had so much pleasure from your blog and you introduced us to so many wonderful and unique artists out there. I loved the guy who made old books into new creations of art by carefully “dissecting” the pages – can’t remember his name now. An the artist who does this wonderful Photoshop, ironing his own trousers while his feet are dangling from the ironing-board!
    You have been a real blessing to me! Thank you.
    Herman.

    • Thank you! I am glad you enjoy my bIog! I appreciate your comments and I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to read my blog.

      The book surgeon’s name is Brian Dettmer and the photoshop guy’s name is Erik Johansson.

    • Aww, Thank you so much! I appreciate that a lot! Sometimes it is hard to make the Mondays happen but I always do my best. I know people look forward to it and no matter how busy I am I know it will relieve some stress.
      If you get back into crafting I would love to see it! I’m sure it is great!

      Thanks again!
