Last night, when I got home from work, I went to check out my blog. I've been teaching training sessions at work all week and haven't had a lot of time to craft. But, I like to read the comments that are left on my projects. I love to check out to see if the author has a blog of their own or who they follow. I think it's a great way to get new inspiration.
Now, I realize that I was really tired last night, and I get overly emotional when I am tired. I am firm believer in the right to free speech that is outlined in the First Amendment. So, while I was reading comments, I found that someone wrote a comment that one of my projects appeared "tacky" as it had a grammatical error. The particular project was a gift for a teacher. For those of you that don't know, my sister (who is my very best friend in the whole world) is a teacher. I wasn't fortunate to have children, so every one of my teacher gifts are for her, her friends, and the young teacher that she is mentoring this year. This comment really hurt my feelings, I put my whole heart and soul into every project I make. Everything I make, I give to the person who provided the inspiration. I'm very fortunate to have such a wonderful family and friends who have helped me through difficult times and I get so much joy at watching them receive their gift.
When I got up this morning, I was still upset about it. I texted Laura and told her what happened. This is what she replied....
"We loved those...kids think it's funny...my tag is on my desk."
Laura always makes me feel better. No one would ask for a better big sister than her! No matter how old we get, she still protects me!
My Grandma Maggie always said, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." So, the moral of this story is, if you don't like something, please keep it to yourself. Stuff like that really hurts my feelings.
To all of the wonderful people who leave me comments, thank you so much. I can't describe how good it makes me feel to read them. It is such an honor to have so many followers, faithful commenters and have such talented crafters involved in my little corner of the blog world. Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by,
