some of you have known me for years and others for a short time,
i believe you choose to visit me,
to read my ramblings,
to find some amusement in my words,
to share my crafting inspirations,
to glimpse 'snippets of my life'.
and so when i was invited by the lovely editor of Artful Blogging to ramble upon their pages this winter, i was rather 'moved' to say the least.
and when i found the 'said article' within my mailbox a few days back i was 'moved' once again.
to see with my own eyes, myself 'in print'
me and dottie angel 'living out loud' together,
making this 'blogging journey' i have taken seem so very real
to be recognized as having an artful blog is something that truly makes me 'gleeful'
(note, how i am getting my new word of the moment in, where ever possible)
but i didn't ask you here today for a cup of tea and a chat, so you can watch me pat myself on the back and look 'gleeful'...
no dearest readers i've asked you to stop by so i may thank you most kindly,
for coming to read my ramblings,
for supporting my crafting epiphanies
so very kindly making me feel i have something worthwhile to 'show and tell'.
in short, for making my blog what is it,
for without you,
i do not believe i would be the blogger i am...
i am thinking perhaps some of you may not get a chance to peruse a copy of Artful Blogging, and so below you will find an excerpt from the article i wrote, thus allowing you to see just how much you all mean to me
in the meantime i will continue to ‘ramble’ upon my blog, the place that makes me feel okay to be me. this truly is down to the readership i have, for they are ‘readers of the utmost kind’, who positively encourage me and my alter ego to go about our daily business, dressed in a customized vintage slip, looking peachy in a summer apron wrap and more often than not standing on a stool living ‘the good life’ wherever and whenever possible… and for that, i must thank them kindly.
(artful blogging volume 3/issue 4)
and it's true, you are my 'dearest readers of the utmost kind' and i count myself most fortunate to have you by my side in this journey i am taking...
she is wishing you a weekend of 'gleeful' moments and many more of them to come ~ Tif
footynote: i will have a copy of Artful Blogging up for 'grabs' on monday 23rd nov along with other goodies, just as my way of saying 'thank you' out loud :)
