Blog Stats!

Some blog stats today that amaze me...

Number of posts: 743 

WOW! I never thought I had this much to show and tell. Ever! Or that I'd stick with it.

Over the last  (almost) three years, I have shared 150 pieces of art with you (!!), plus knitting, crocheting, sewing, cooking, baking, pics from around Savannah, our home, travel photos, family photos and simply my thoughts on many things. And you have come back again and again. Thank you!
Loyal Readers: 419

Ok, now I know not all of you read my blog every day and that some who signed up early on probably forgot that my blog even exists, but still. WOW! So grateful!!!
And here it comes. The number that had me do a double take and then stare at the computer with eyes wide in disbelief:

Published Comments: 12,695

I know I'm repeating myself, but WOW! Can this be true?!
A print in progress.
The background was created using an airbrush
with soap ground over a doily stencil.
And then etched, of course, and printed.
I just love the soft edge of the lace!!

To say I am humbled and grateful would be an understatement. How is this possible? That I still have more to say and show you? That you keep coming back to visit? From all over the world? That you keep commenting? That new readers find what I have to offer interesting and of value? That longtime readers haven't gotten tired of me yet? And that because of this blog, my creations have traveled the world...

I'm blown away! This most definitely calls for a giveaway in the very near future!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

You are THE BEST!!
