Blogging + Friendship


I think if one’s not used to being active online, the idea of meeting somebody met online can be weird. But if one keeps virtually bumping into each other, meeting up in person just seems like the natural thing to do.

After four plus years of online rendezvous, Ashley Newell and I finally met. It was short, but it was nice nonetheless. My only regret was not being able to show her and Mac around more! We did though hit a few spots and showed them a bit of the British country side.

I’d LOVE to meet more of my blogging friends, especially those who started blogging (or following each other) from the beginning. I’d hate to miss anybody by naming them but a few from back in the days are Amy Tsuruta, Sarah Martina Parker, Tina Fussel, and Angie Tieman. We were all always doing a Kristina Werner and 2Sketches4You challenges and whatever other fun paper crafting fun goodness that’s going on online. We were all new to blogging and challenges and were oh so eager ha ha ha… Ahhh… being a bit nostalgic {::SMILES}.

I didn’t think I’d make real friends out of this blog of mine but I did and even though most I’ve never met, it’s wonderful that we can communicate on a regular basis outside of our blogs. Oh, Clouds, if you’re reading this, you’re due for a visit {::WINK}!

Oh oh, I made a scrapbook page last night! So proud of myself!! I went to the base craft shop and since I haven’t shopped for new things in ages, what they carried (not much) were lovely and new to me. I do miss craft shopping in the US. Nothing here compares to some of my favorite independent and big (Archivers) scrapbook American shops. So this is my goal: Whenever we go back, the first thing I am going to hit is a scrapbook store, HA HA!!

Take care and until next time!
