I received a blog award yesterday which got me to thinking about this blogging life. Before I started a blog, I didn't even know what one was. I might have stumbled upon a few in my net surfing while researching different topics, but never thought much about how much a person's heart and soul is poured into it. Blogging is its own little world, a social network of people who link their lives through their daily writings that I had no idea existed. I think that's why we bloggers treasure your comments so much. We like to know that we are providing interesting, relevant content and most of all to be acknowledged that someone is actually reading it!

When I started selling my jewelry online, I kept hearing, "You need to start a blog to drive people to your shop and so they can get to know the artist behind the product". Well, since then I believe it has become more than that to me. I've met some wonderful people, some of them who faithfully read my blog and leave comments. I look forward to their posts and seeing what is going on in their lives. When I started, I vowed to never post pictures of my child, my husband or myself, and I haven't done much of it yet, but I may dare to venture into that territory just because all of the people I've met so far are so sincere.

Now, for the "Love ya "award. GinabeeCreations and Musings gave this to me saying that my blog is interesting to read, thanks Ginabee!

Now I'll pass it on to two fellow bloggers who have blogs that are a great read and always leave me with a smile on my face:
1. Sharla of Beaded Tail
2. Beki of Pampering Beki

One more thing...A Photo Meme:
A while back I was tagged with a photo meme by Beaded Tail and Sally's Cards. I was to go to the sixth picture folder and find the six picture. This is what I found and actually blogged about it before, but it's worth posting again. When I lived in Kansas City for a year and half, the weather really intrigued me and I frequently shot pictures of the sky. This was a day in June around 5 pm when all of a sudden a beautiful sunny day turned into a very nasty rain storm. You can read about it if you click here. This is one is a series of photos I took of the deteriorating weather.
Here's to happy blogging, whether you're a reader or a writer!


  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I like the picture you posted of the Kansas sky. Congratulations on your award! Take care...

  2. I feel the same way about blogs and am always amazed at the people I've "met" from all over the world! I have enjoyed following you during your move from Kansas back to Washington and learning about your jewelry and of course seeing what Ace is up to from time to time! Anyway, you certainly deserve that award and thank you so much for passing it to me! As for the photo, I knew instantly it was from Kansas since I saw those skies for 20 some years that I lived there! It is a great photo though!

  3. Thank you so much! :)

    I love that photo. Amazing.

  4. You have a way with words that's beautiful.
    I lived in Kansas, too, for a few years. I don't blame you for moving, I did. Hugs.


Thanks so much for taking the time to write your thoughts. I treasure each and every comment and look forward to reading what you have to say!
