Thank You!

OK, hold on.

Nope, that's not it. Let me get this thing in focus.

Oh crap. Where's my head?

Alright, well, you get the idea.

Seriously, thank you so much for your comments regarding my last post. It was so helpful to hear where you all are coming from. If any of you have ever wrestled with some of these blogging issues (and from your comments, I know you do!), I highly recommend reading everyone's responses to me! So gracious, so kind, and so honest. Just what I needed!

So here's my takeaway from all this: I am still going to blog about my home and decorating and crafting, with a splash of my "real" life thrown in there so you know I have dirty dishes on the counter, most likely just pushed out of the way for a photo of something I've spray painted. I am going to let myself off the hook for feeling like I have to respond to every comment and generally be "super-blogger." I am going to be happy that I get to share my ideas with you all, and that you enjoy coming here and tweaking my ideas to fit your own home.

And most of all I am going to communicate how much I appreciate that you do come here, and that you share your day with me. As I read your comments all weekend, I felt a growing sense of freedom and excitement in sharing more of my projects with you, so watch out! It's amazing what a little grace can do, huh? Good life lesson for me, too, actually...

So thank you, thank you, thank you...from the bottom of my crafty little heart.

I just found you a month or two ago through Nester (I think)- and have really enjoyed going back and reading your posts! I think its awesome that you care about your readers so much, and that you've been able to keep up so much communication- The thought alone wears me out!

I say: craft away, girl! I'll be reading for sure! :)

Carrie, I absolutely ♥love♥ reading your posts! Love them!

How I wish I could write and blog like you do! I also wish I had a following like you do! Ha! I'm lucky if I get one single comment on a post! ;o) Yes, I'm serious!

Keep on posting, we'll be reading!

I tried twice to comment on the last post, but my internet kept on dieing on me!

I love all that you do. And if I had a gazillion followers, I don't think it would ever occur to me to try to personally reply to each comment!

Just keep doing your thing - I love it!

Hi Carrie :)

Remember me? LOL Maybe not! I read your last post... trust me when I say that I understand. I wrote a post about this very thing not too long ago and that's one of the reasons I hadn't been by. I have WAY too much stuff going on and barely have time to post much less get back to everyone. Anyway, it's good to visit you again and see what's been going on in your life :)

Hi Carrie,

I read your post below and that's the same question I ask myself all the time. Sometimes I take a week off and post from my archives just so that I have time to get to people at least once. I feel bad that there are people that always comment and I just don't have the time to do so. I can either do stuff or comment, not both usually. So that's how I deal with it.

You are too cute Carrie! (and I love that you can write "crap" on your blog! Ha!) No super blogging necessary - just keep on doing what you're doing - it's great!
