Wowzers…it’s been eons since I last posted a reader spotlight. I will say, though, that the blog I have to share today was certainly worth waiting for.
Until I decided to earnestly take the leap and make a go of Positively Splendid, I had no idea how many delightful, lovely people I would meet through the blogging community. I find it so encouraging that in a cut-throat world, there are still generous souls out there making a successful go of it. I count myself immensely blessed to be in the company of all of you! What a fun ride this is!
Last week, I posted about a tool I’ve found that lets you use your regular sewing machine to create a faux rolled hem. (If you haven’t already seen the post, head here to take a look.) In my post, I mentioned one of my favorite pattern companies, Izzy & Ivy, as being one of those that utilizes a lot of rolled hems in their garments.
Fast forward to a couple of days later when I received a comment from a reader on that particular post. Shasta from Izzy & Ivy stopped by to let me know they had shared my tip with her readers on her blog, and she asked if I would send her my address so she could send me a little something to thank me for mentioning them. How kind is that?
I hope you don’t think that I’m trying to imply by any means that the reason to show appreciation for fellow bloggers is so you can get something in return. What I have hoped to convey is how immensely blessed we should count ourselves to be a part of such a beautiful community of creative individuals, and how, as stewards of the talents we’ve been given, we can use our gifts to brighten someone’s day.
Happy weekend, friends!
