Pay it Forward

For those of you who have a blog, you know the little community that exists between our computers. Far away friends who encourage you and act as a sounding board for ideas. The inspiration and creativity in 'the blog world' seems to be as deep as the ocean. Recently, I received an email from a fellow blogger. It included a heartfelt note about my blog. I was so touched. Sometimes I forget that people really read my words- this is not just my crafty diary.

The note also included a chance to share something personal facts about me, fun! Most importantly it included the opportunity to then 'pay it forward' and thank all those other bloggers who inspire me in my crafty journey.

So first of all, thank you to Sara over at Alderberry Hill- your email/award made my day!

Second, here are the requirements that come with the award :)
-Link back to the blogger who passed along the award.
-Share 7 things about yourself.
-Pass along the award to 15 other bloggers who inspire you.

So here are my random 'things'.

1. Pinterest always makes me hungry- all those yummy recipes. Maybe one day I'll actually cook one of them!

2. I think you can never have enough burlap. Seriously, is there anything that can't be done with it???

3. My favorite time of day is morning. There is so much potential at the start of a new day.

4. I love big chunky jewelry.

7. I love my kindle, but there is nothing like going to the bookstore and getting a new book. The pages smell so good!

The thing that I like most about blogs is that there is room for lots of everyone. It is not competitive, we help, encourage, and inspire each other. Each person brings something different to the table. So here are a few that have inspired me lately...
















Stop by and say hello, everyone loves a new 'follower'!


  1. You are so sweet! Thank you for the shout out. :) I just love your blog, and I think we have a lot in common. :)

  2. Thank you Samantha for including me! I love reading blogs and the inspiration that transpires!

  3. Those are some of my favorite blogs too...and I love yours as well. Happy Halloween!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I love to hear from you and will do my best to answer questions and comments by 'replying via email'.
:) Samantha
