My virtual friends on Charters Creations, are in the main, like-minded friends and have their own blogs which share their creative side. I consider myself quite fortunate and enjoy linking in with you all.
Do you link as a 'reciprocal gesture - I hope not, I certainly don't and only follow those who I 'want' to. Some of the reasons why I do, are because:
- I am inspired
- Intrigued, perhaps you have an 'unusual' style to your blog
- It may be the beginning of Your Journey - and this in itself I find interesting, which way will your path take you
- I see similarities in my own 'learning curve'
- Share views
Unfortunately that's not always the case ... some its just blatant advertising and spam tweets. Anyone who follows me, I try to find out a little more about them; if they have the above criteria I may return the 'follow' - but never automatically.
Just a thought ... now I'd like to give a big welcome to:
Gemma of Damselfly Gemma is interested in all types of jewellery and makes beautiful resin jewellery, beaded hair clips, button jewellery and has an online Folksy shop where you too can see her work.
Dee - unknown to me but I'm sure somebody who likes Handmade crafts as she follows a few blogs that I do.
Norma Jean Dell of NJ Designs is a Beadweaver who designs beautiful, in fact my next post will feature a pair of earrings that is one of her designs. Thank you for inspiring me!
Sarah of April is Forever creates handmade beaded jewellery on Etsy and sells tutorials and even has free tutorials whilst also contributing to Tackle That Bead Stash.
Alana Haukka is a Beadweaver, wireworker and polymer clay artist and poet who like so many of us is inspired by all types of creativity.
So, I think you will agree with my opening statement, so many of my virtual friends are fellow artists.
Thank you all once again, its a great start to 2012. I will be posting again tomorrow to show you the earrings I made for the Beadalong ....
Until then, 'Keep Watching and I'll Keep Blogging'
