crafted by ayelet
Last week I received the loveliest email from fellow crafty lady, Ayelet who lives far away in Israel. Like myself Ayelet is a graphic designer with dreams of becoming a craft artist. Above are some of Ayelet's wonderful animal creations. I especially like the little joey in the mama's pouch and the clever use of maps as backdrops.
Ayelet's email was also a timely reminder why I started blogging. The week before I lost a hand-full of followers in a matter of days. I was terribly worried that I had offended or even worse bored some readers to the point of no longer following me. Oh no!! While this troubled me for a day or so I reminded myself that follower numbers was not why I kept a blog. It didn't matter if I had 10 or 500 followers as long as I was enjoying the process and documenting the things that I make and find that inspire me. Plus people need to spring clean their blog lists from time to time. Don't they? It just so happens a bunch of you were doing this during the same week. Oh well.
So to hear from Ayelet who was feeling inspired by checking in to see what I was blogging about was exactly what it was all about for me. I was (and still am) inspired and motivated by SO many blogs, creative and otherwise and after years of lurking and getting inspired from others I felt like giving back, in some small way by starting my own. I wanted to join in and be part of the wonderful online community that I believe exists, especially in the world of crafty blogs! And I'm so glad that I did.
