Tuesday 9 March 2010

I just wanted to thank you for the encouragement during my job search, the compliments on my creations, the positive words after Brian's surgery and the congratulations concerning the magazine interview and all my little projects.

Blogging is a strange thing. Even after a few years, I still don't get it. I generally don't know your last name, your exact age, where you live and what your job is. We would be at the same bus stop and we might not even smile at each other because we don't really know what we look like. However, I feel comfortable telling you my fears and my insecurities.

When I'm without a job, I have a tendency to isolate myself from my "non-blog friends". I don't want them to see me like that...the I-still-didn't-get-hired-after-3-months but I get more active with my blog life: I write more posts, I read more blogs and I comment more.

I just wanted to let you know, dear readers, that even if I now have a job I will stick with you because you make my life richer, you make me smile, you make me believe in me like I never did before.

So thank you so much, you all rock!

This is such a sweet post! When I started my blog, I never though I'd find a community with such creative, sweet, and encouraging people! It's really wonderful how nice everyone is here! I'm glad that my comments could make you feel even a little better about things! :)

You're such a sweetheart Claudia.

I feel like you took the thoughts straight from my brain :)

Hi Claudia. I'm sorry to read about your poor puppy and hope he's on the mend. It's great that you do continue to blog (even if mainly when out of work!) as I think your craft is truly wonderful and I love your photos. Take care. Marina.

Wow this post pretty sums up me in a nut shell as well. Got laid off almost 3 months ago and now just work on creating clothing. Life is a crazy thing that takes us for a ride sometimes that we never thought we would be on.

I hope things in your life are going wonderful!
