Community… Crafting… Family
You guys. My heart is so unbelievably happy right now and so so full.
To say it’s been an easy couple of weeks, would be a lie. I am sure a lot of you have seen it on other pages as well as mine. There are so many unkind and hurtful people blowing up our pages. Throwing negative comments out there, as if there is not a real person behind that camera. Saying hurtful things to us, our families, and our crafting family.
These comments as much as we try to ignore them do sting. Sure most of the time we just vent to our husbands, closest friends or our journals…but sometimes, especially lately we have ALL had to address such things on our pages. Reminding people they are choosing to watch our videos…no one is making them. I would never want someone that is that unhappy with my page to stay. Life is too short. Simply click unfollow and I hope along the way you find a better fit for you. I say this with so much care. I do. I want everyone to truly be happy.
I am a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a teacher, a friend, a crafter, a giver and so much more. I am a real person just like you. I try so hard to show that daily on my page and lives. Most of you see that. Most of you chat along telling me about your family, telling me what you’re working or and sharing with me your life. We are creating a community together. A community that I am forever grateful for your kindness. A family!
Tonight I had to stop at my studio and I had a package in the mail. A little piece of happy mail from a follower!! I opened it right up and got to read one of the most thoughtful letters I have ever received. A reminder on why us crafters put our lives out there for you all to see. Why we laugh, cry and pray with all of you. Yes this is my business but being able to craft with you guys doesn’t make it feel like a job. I am one lucky girl!
Debbie K. you made my night. A lot of you know I started this business with my mom, who passed away from breast cancer always front and center. She is my why. I have gotten to connect with a lot of you over this very topic. Check out what Debbie sent me. I have to admit. The ugly cry came out. This is so so special.
I will forever be thankful for this community. I know we are all going through one heck of a time right now with this COVID mess but we all will get through this together. Send someone a note, pay for the coffee in line behind you, drop off a little doorstep craft. Make someone smile. A smile is way more contagious than COVID. XOXO
