Looking Back and Grow Your Blog Party


Hello All!
Not long ago I was taking a nostalgic look back at my first days blogging.
I had been inspired by all your amazing blogs and decided to give it a go.
All I  knew in the beginning was that I wanted to be more creative,
and I wanted to create art that felt good, and affirmed my life...
and so I named my blog Artful Affirmations.

It seemed like a big step to take almost 4 years ago,
I had no idea what a "blogger" was, or how to create a template, or add a gadget!
I am no expert now, but boy have I learned a lot!
Thank you dear hubby, daughter and son who helped me out,
they really have made it easier for me to learn.


My Blessings of Blogging...

#1 ...Friends!
Yes, real ones, even though most I have not met in person.
This is really the best part of blogging for me.
What a great way to meet new people of like mind!

April 14th 2009 was my very first blog post...
which means I am coming up to my 4th anniversary! Wow!
I can't believe it has been that long.

Karen from Missy K and Melanie from Artful Interludes were my very first visitors!
Two people I still know today!
In fact Karen just won a prize in my December Giveaway.
I also enjoyed quite a length of time swapping with Melanie over at
Marie Antoinette Mail Art group. 
Thank you two for commenting!
You may not know how much hope you gave me that  some one was listening! 

Since my blog has a wide focus of interest, I have met those who love mixed media art, who love jewelry making, who love to knit and crochet, or to journal, and many who love tea cups!


I have enjoyed meeting each and every one of you!
You have all taught me so much in many different ways.
Just reading your comments and e-mails warms my heart!


2... Blogging has helped me get to know myself better,
Posting and sharing has helped me grow in confidence.
I really didn't know how important creating was to me until I began to blog.
Watching others creatively express themselves
gave me courage to try many new things.
Supportive blog friend's kind words
have given me hope and courage to grow as an artist.
I still love to try new things...and I call myself "Jack of all trades and Mater of fun!"
and my motto is
"If your having fun your doing it right!"


 I love paint, pencils, paper, fabric, glue, vintage beads and paper.....so much!!!

3... Hosting Tea Cup Tuesday made me to learn new things about the computer and tea cups! Lol!!! 
Now I do know how to "add a gadget" or "link up" a blog hop!
I have had to learn many things to keep it going.
Martha of Martha's Favorites and I thought how much we would love
to share our tea cups
with each other...and Tea Cup Tuesday was born!
We have known each other online for 3 years at least,
and we just spoke on the telephone
for the first time....this week! That was amazing!
Martha is a gem!
I have many other fellow tea cup enthusiasts who
have taught me a lot about china as well.
You are all fabulous!!! Thank you!


Today I am enjoying blogging more than ever!
I have enjoyed many swaps and hops.
 I began creating video tutorials a couple years ago and now have 8 videos
and a Fairy School tutorial series. All Free! I found out I love sharing this way. 
I don't think I would have found this out if I had not blogged : )



I want to thank Vicki at Two Bags Full for inspiring me to take a look back at my blogging experience and for giving us a chance to meet even more creative bloggers!


which is being sponsored by Vicki at
Yay!
Thank you Vicki!

To whoever invented blogging...
I raise my glass to you!
Thank you!
From my Heart!

And to say "thank you" to all I am offering another giveaway...

Just leave a comment and a way to reach you.

Hugs,
Terri

BECKY said...

Hi Terri! I don't remember how we met, do you? It was probably one of those "accidents" when one of us blog hopped from one to another, etc. I sure loved being involved in Tea Cup Tuesdays...and I really plan to get back to that soon. Your blog really is lovely and you're so talented. And oh my goodness....That book you're giving away has my name on it!! Blogging for Bliss!? That's me! :)

Great post and fun look back! Have fun blog hopping.
Hugs and love sweetie, Marilou xoxo

Melanie said...

I feel exactly the same way. Blogging has also brought lots of new friends into my life. Somehow it doesn't really matter that we may ever meet. It's kind of like having pen pals only much much better. I would love the chance to win this giveaway as I need as much help as I can get because I still have so much more to learn about blogging.
Blessings to you
Melanie @ French Blue and Peachy Pink Blogspot

Thank you for all you do!

Oh my goodness, Terri. Did I ever enjoy every word of this post. It was from your heart...and I feel the same way. I first started out in blog land in January of 2010...and you are one of the first bunch of blogging ladies I met. "with me from the start"....

Blogging really does teach us so much about ourselves...I wouldn't trade that experience for anything.

Your blog is always a fun place to visit...with my cup of tea (or coffee) in hand. I love watching your schoolhouse tutorials with my daughter....I feel like I know you!!!

Thanks for sharing...

Warm hugs dear blogging friend,

Holly said...

Hello Terri!
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your kind comment!
Indeed, I do love the works of E. Gaskell! I have read all of her more popular books many times and am working on the less popular ones. The Cranfor and Return to Cranford mini series by BBC are Excellent. I enjoy all of the BBC adaptations of her works though. Each time I watch one I decided "this is my favorite!" until I watch the next one, then I have a new favorite. So I have concluded that they are all my favorite, each in their own way and for their own reasons.

Sorry to ramble, and thank you again for stopping by!

heck, if I had half a brain, I'd close w/out sending my comment.
all righty then.....send...!

Marrianna said...

Oh, goodie, I found some other bloggers who like teacups. I've got a great collection hidden in an old library card catalog. I'll have to get them out and take great photos of them. Anyway, I found you via Vicki's Grow Your blog Party. I hope you will also visit my blog and see what I'm up to.
