Hello my friends. Well, what can we say… Firstly, an enormous thank you to our Julia for having the bright idea of photographing our workspaces all those years ago. Who would have thought, that, 10 years later, it would still be so incredibly popular; that so many of us would gather each week to gaze at one another’s messy or tidy spaces.
I haven’t been in the group since its inception, but have been around for nearly 8 of the 10, beginning with just peeping, then being brave enough to make a few comments, then to actually have a site myself where I, too, could photograph what I was up to and receive comments. During those almost 8 years I thank you for your friendship and support. You are a great bunch, being there for folks when they are struggling, and there to rejoice with people. You send cards, gifts, ATCs; you encourage, laugh and cry together. The picture above shows just a few of the ATCs and gifts I have received over the years. Thank you.
The very first blog I ever commented on was Patsy’s in the Philippines. Remember her? She used to have a giveaway of one of her paintings to one of the folks who commented. I couldn’t believe it when, that first week, I won! What a treat.
Over the years I have had the privilege and delight of meeting many of you – in your work spaces, in cafes, in garden centres, even, Shaz in Oz, in an airport, at a railway station, and at crops.
Thanks, Julia, for bringing us all together. Have a great day with all your zooming on Saturday!! Thanks everyone for your friendship.
Take care. God bless you mightily!
