One thing I've enjoyed so much about being on-line and having the blog is that you get to meet so many nice, creative and talented people.
I made a focal bead for a pendant a while back, and being the slowest jewelry maker around Planet Earth it took me a while from the time I made the focal to the time I assembled the necklace.
Kim at artdogslife took it home with her, and I was so pleased. I really like when the jewelry goes home with folks that I know will appreciate it, it's like parting with a favorite treasured item sometimes. I sent it out, and she wrote a really nice post about it with that lovely photo. I love the way she arranged the picture, so feminine.
While doing research on trades and charms for Artfest, I ran across her blog, and realized she might be going, too. So we emailed about that, and I can't wait to meet her in person. I think we even have a class together!
So it's fun and creates connections, being on the blog and on Etsy, I've met so many nice people I wouldn't have met any other way.
