One of the wonderful surprises I’ve experienced with blogging is the chance for new friendships.
No, online friendships are not the same as face-to-face friendships. But connections are made even when we don’t meet each other face-to-face.
With readers of this blog and writers of other blogs, I’ve shared life experiences. I’ve received moral support, inspiration and encouragement. And I’ve had plain fun conversations with people I would never have met if not for the Internet.
One of those blogging friends is Patty of Patty’s Pretty Things.
The word “pretty” goes perfectly with Patty. She’s a pretty lady with a pretty personality who makes creative and—you guessed it—pretty things.
I love reading her blog and seeing pictures of the art she makes. She takes vintage items and creates new pieces that are not only beautiful to look at, but honor the people who used those items first.
Her family and her home are very important to Patty, and she celebrates them with her art.
Patty recently sent me a Christmas package. When I opened the package, I was so excited to find this:
This lovely Christmas card is an example of the paper art Patty makes.
These cardinal tags came complete with ribbon to use to attach them to packages I give out this year.
The kitty faces on these cards are so sweet. How did Patty know I like cats? (smile)
I can’t wait to send out these butterfly cards.
Patty made my day with this fun and pretty package. She’s so sweet. I hope you will check out her blog and see many more pretty things she’s made.
Thank you, Patty! And thank you to all my blogging friends who make my life richer from just knowing you.
What do you like best about your blogging friendships?
