Oh my goodness! You like me, you REALLY like me! As I sit here writing this, I'm still basking in the warm glow of all the kind words, encouragement, new friends, new "likes",support...so many exciting things came out of one message sent on Facebook today! I follow so many awesome blogs and always hope that someday I can achieve just a smidgen (word? yes? no? Oh, whatever! I'm gonna go with it 'cuz I'm a happy girl!) of what they've accomplished. It's so easy to get caught up in the negative thoughts..."I'm never going to accomplish that," "She's SO talented...I'll never be able to do that," that sometimes we get in our own way. I've been taking baby steps for a while now...well, actually I'll take a big step, then back way off. But today something hit me. For some unknown reason I felt an overwhelming need to let someone know what their daily posts on their Facebook site mean to me. Not only the pictures of the beautiful creations they make, but their beautiful words of encouragement, often, it appears, when they personally are feeling pretty low. Not only did I get a response, but what happened next was literally overwhelming! This beautiful person posted my Facebook page on her wall and opened the doors for me to the GREATEST people! And she gave me these words: (hopefully she won't mind if I post this!) "Go all in, treat this like your job and make a plan. We are the most fortunate of all people, knowing what we love and doing it with all we are..." Barbara, The Shabby Cowgirl...YOU have lifted MY heart today! Thank you sooo very much! And thank you Trash to Treasure, Just Two Olives, Whimsy and Wire Collection, Katies Rose Cottage and all of the individuals who found my page today. Your kind words have encouraged me to keep going! And Three Speckled Hens...you ROCK for telling me I should apply for a booth! I think I will! xoxo

My "pillow display chair" is looking a little bare...and this girl looks lonely...
SO full of love and gratitude tonight!
