the first, from a friend who replied to my mass 'a new blog post is up!' email. her email made my heart smile, so i asked permission to share. Permission was granted as long as I fixed typos ;)
"I was never into blogs....I always thought they were diaries online. Then, I met you. I learned so much! I was totally wrong and now realize what a world of amazing ideas exist on blogs. not diaries but creativity online to inspire...share and create masterpieces. So I've decided I will quit my job (after we win the lotto!) and make all these amazing things I've been introduced to via your blog and links. The prudent site was adorable!! Congrats on your 'shout out' there too! In reality....I will be at work at 9 tomorrow ....however I am now DETERMINED to scrap AND make J's dress this weekend. :) Happy only 2 days til the weekend....I'm ready. The crafty side of me wants out!"
