I'm Just Having Fun!

 

 
One year ago today, I pressed the 'publish' button for the first time!
 
 
I didn't realise just how much fun I would have.....
 
 
Just how many interesting people I would 'meet'....
 
 
How many 'connections' I would make....
 
 
How inspired I would be....
 
 
I never realised how much this little blog would mean to me. How much I would enjoy our little chats, I never thought in a million years it would be such fun!
 
Thank you all for being there over the past year, thank you for your comments and your support.
 
Thank you for the inspiration, the advice and guidance, thank you for making me laugh, for making me think, and at times making me cry.
 
But most of all, thank you for helping make this little space, a happy, colourful and great place for me to hang out......and have fun!
 
 
And so I hope to continue for another year. Another year of creative fun, with people who understand just how giddy a girl can get, over vintage sheets, vintage wallpaper, tatty old suitcases......and now colourful crochet!
 
I was planning a little give away just to say thanks, but I've not had time today to take any photos of it, so that will have to wait until later in the week, but it will happen!
 
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
 
 
Ada :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
