Just About Over....

On this, the last day of the year, I want to take the opportunity to say thank you to all who visit here....whether it's your first time or you're a regular, your visit is important to me. I try to be a gracious hostess and make you feel comfortable and I can only hope I succeed.

Many times through the year I got discouraged and down about my art but somehow you always boosted me back up again and sent me right back to the studio to try again. I know that without all your support and encouragement I would not be creating as much as I have.

Some days I had absolutely NOTHING to write about (I live a very exciting life!!) and I just sort of rambled on about something silly....but you still visited me and you left me comments and showed me that you're there with me. I can't begin to tell you how much that means to me!

I don't want to get all gushy and gooey here but I do want to let you all know that never, not for one second, have I ever taken any of you for granted. I'm always surprised at the number of comments I receive and very thankful for each one. It's very exciting to open my email and find comments to read. I know that there were many times when I didn't respond back to you....mostly during the hot, icky months of summer and then after my son arrived....but I'm getting better at it. I'm not a very good time manager!!

So when all is said and done, I consider myself pretty darned lucky to have all of you in my life. I look forward to another year of making new friends, learning more about my old friends, and just generally enjoying each other's company. I hope you all have a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Thank you for being part of my life....
