From the bottom of my heart Thank you

Two years ago when we came to Kamloops for my husbands job, I knew no one. My blog, my followers and my fellow bloggers became my connection to the world. When I was lonely and I wanted to talk, I could blog. It helped me to not feel so isolated.

To all of my followers, whether you joined my blog or just read it from time to time.I want to say thank you for being here with me. In these two years my blog has grown, I have 30 followers, and I am so flattered that all of you took the time to join my blog and too follow me. I never would have dreamed that anyone would want to hear what I had to say. I want all of you to know how much you mean to me. You have helped me to believe in myself and to try new things. I truly love what I do and I am glad you have stayed along for the ride.
I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the new year. I love hearing from you and would love to know more about all of you. Please stay safe and healthy, and I hope your holidays are filled with family and friends and good times and thank you again for being here with me.

Thank you

To my fellow bloggers, your blogs have inspired me and have given me the drive and the tools to try new things. I love that I have all of that knowledge and talent right at the end of my finger tips. All of you have become my online friends who I can turn too for ideas and help if needed. I love escaping into your blogs and seeing all of the incredible talent and creations that all of you have made. Your blogs have made me laugh and made me cry but mostly they have given me strength. I have grown so much in these last two years and I want to say thank you. For showing me new products, new ideas, and for helping me to expand my knowledge and critique my talents.

And to all of the people that have helped me to sell my products and to those of you who were gracious enough to buy my upcycled treasures.
Thank you for support and encouragement

    1. Thank you so much Jada and Wynona, it is not easy leaving Kamloops and the amazing people that I have met here.
