A new start..




Hi there lovelies.. Hope you are having a great week so far.. I caught a bug, but besides that I'm doing very well myself. I try not to think about it, so that I can keep up with all the things I have to do.
I started this blog back in February just to have a place to share my new hobby, making cards, with the lovely people who came from the different challenges I used to play in. At that time I had heard about the blogging world, but was very sceptical about it because I didn't know if it was a good idea to share my things with people I didn't know. But it didn't take very long for me to realize that those people I didn't know where the most lovely and sweetest persons I've ever met. The fact that someone you don't know hops over to your place ( blog ) and leaves the sweetest word about you or your project just leaves you with the most heartwarming feeling. The more people came to my blog, the better I felt about what I was doing and the more exciting it got to have a blog. To make this story short, last month I got the most visitors and my cards also started to get noticed more and more. I made top 5 at the Get sketchy Challenge, 2 sketches 4 you challenge and I also got featured on the Cards blog challenge. These may be not the biggest accomplishments for most of you who have more years making cards or blogging, but for me its HUGE..! Therefore I decided to have a more determined purpose for my blog and also to make it a more friendly place for me and for you. I'm moving the blog to Typepad, which I think makes it easier for me to express myself, interact with my readers, and they have an excellent support service to help you whenever you needed and they respond to you very fast to ;) I'm gonna try to finish my renewed blog for the beginnig of next week, but I will announced that here when it's all done.
This post is called a new start not only for the moving of this blog, but also because I'm doing some changes in my life to. The past Sunday I had the most wonderful encounter in which I got renewed by my Savior. God has always been the most important force in my life since I was a little girl, but due to growing up, moving to Holland and numerous other things in my life, I took our relationship for granted and lost a huge part of my faith in him. Till last Sunday, when he grabbed me in his arms again and told me that everything was going to be alright. Last Sunday was the first time in a long time that I could say the words '' live is wonderful '' again. I never want to let that feeling go away again, God is good, he is wonderful to me and to you. No matter your believe, no matter what you think gives you strenght, I just hope you always believe ;)

I have a very busy week this week but I hope I can make something to share with you on the way. 
Ooh and you know I'm not bragging but, I'm so happy my warmest wishes card made the top 5 at the 2 sketches 4 you challnege and also that my mini thanksgiving place cards were featured on the Card blog challenge. Super ha ?

Thank you so much for ( reading this long post if you did ) stopping by..
I'm leaving you with some happy images, hope you like them...

Hi Giselle. Congrats on your new start and best wishes for it to be a smooth transition. Sorry to hear you were under the weather and hope you are better now. Thank you for following my blog too. I love your cards. I too am kind of a newbie, newer than you to blogging (started in August). I look forward to visiting your new site.
