yesterday i logged into blogger to find my reader count at 100.
now, as a self-confessed hopeless romantic and general emotional extremist, i could go on forever about how much this means to me, but i shall try and keep it brief.

basically, this blog has been a little haven during this year. i have already mentioned on twitter several times that i believe this to be the worst year of my life to date. however, the optimist in me can find a positive for every negative- and this blog is now one of those positives.
i love being able to write about all my diy's and hopes and general ramblings of my day, and i genuinely think that this blog has pushed me into keeping creative as much as possible. i've finally started the journey into my own shop, and as small as it is now, i plan to keep building on it all the time.
the fact the so many people now read and comment on here is just mind blowing- i've said it before, but being able to meet people through blogging is definitely the best part. i've started talking to so many amazing people and think that you're all awesome- so thank you.

i hope that wasn't too much for anyone! i'll be posting again very soon with a new diy- i've been making craft clay christmas ornaments and they're taking longer than anticipated to dry!


  1. Congratulations on reaching 100 followers, you deserve it :)
    I can read parts of this post and feel like I wrote them myself. This hasn't been the best year but one of the good things is definitely how proud I am of how my blog and shop are doing, and of course all the lovely people I've started talking to because of them!
    Can't wait to see the ornaments! x

  2. Yay! Congrats on reaching 100!
