simple but true

I made this artwork on the computer yesterday to tuck inside my new frame. It's sits perfectly on my beside table as a sweet reminder. I often try to remind myself that no matter how insignificant I might feel, to remember that I am somebody's favorite. I am sure a lot of you fellow bloggers can relate and know how tough the virtual world can be. You wonder if people like you & what projects you are doing, as well as trying to stay true to who you are. You compare your blog to others and pay way too much attention to positive and negative feedback when people critique the ins and outs of your life and your design choices. All of this while hoping that the ride doesn't end. Let's face it, I love you peeps...down right crushin' and I just don't want to create disappointing posts.
This blog has taken me on an amazing journey and given me many opportunities, so I always secretly fear it going away while wondering if I I have what it takes to make it grow. I try to not think about others reading what I am writing too much (or I would freeze and never have anything to post) or let it dictate the projects I do because what fun would that be?! I just try and be me and do what I do and hope that everyone enjoys it. So when I am feeling a little vulnerable like this, I just tell myself I am somebody's favorite...even if it is just these two handsome fellas...
that is good enough for this gals heart. So when your day is tough at work or at home just remember you too are someone's favorite. Your place in the world is significant and if people comment or don't on a post....like your latest DIY or not, you are still ahhhmazing! Keep being you and your beauty will shine through. So write it in lipstick across your mirror or on a note for your kids school lunch or jot it down on the family chalkboard and remember...

  6. No need to be vulnerable,my friend. Sometimes people don't post because they are lazy or just aren't in the mood. They could have had a bad day & find it relaxing & enjoyable, but just don't have the energy to respond. It's nothing personal.Keep doing what you're doing & keep inspiring. It will pay off. BTW, I checked out your pages in the "House of Fifty." Awesome to be recognized.God bless, Sherri

  7. I've been visiting your blog regularly since your Baltimore house was featured on Young House Love. I haven't commented before this because I always feel weird and I apologize for that! I am going to comment more because you deserve it :) You are wildly talented and creative. The amount of detail and polish you (and the Hubs) put into your projects is amazing and inspiring. I love your quirky style and your sweet genuine personality. You have a loyal reader and a friend in me!
