A Comment on Comments

I'm not really sure how to put this but I have noticed that some lovely people send me an email when I comment on their blogs whereas I hardly ever do. The reason I don't is that I just don't have enough time, although it is obvious that others actually make the time and after all, we all only have 24 hours in a day! So for anyone that ever comments on my blog posts, please KNOW that you make my day big-time when you comment and that I love the connection you create even if I am not able to reply.

On the same general subject I have to admit that I was not even aware that there were any blog protocols (such as linking the blogs you love to your own) and I really hope that everyone I ever link to sees it as a compliment. I didn't realise for the first year of reading blogs that strangers actually commented on blogs they read. I thought everyone actually "knew" the person whose blog they commented on! I now of course know that I can comment and have made some wonderful connections as a result. I really hope I am not the only person out there who struggled to work it all out!!


Now to more creative stuff - I have (finally) finished my wall hanging for the Paint Metal Fabric Challenge for Fiona and was going to post a photo tonight but I have just decided to change the hanging part! I am determined to get it in the post on Monday so I will make the changes tomorrow and show you the final result.

The photos today are of some pages I have created in journal exchanges. Both of them reflect my love of patinas and metal products - the top one has fine copper mesh which has been scorched over a gas flame and cut and folded to make a frame and the second one has a faux verdigris patina (using those wonderful products by Langridge) and oxidized copper tape. Now I am off to hopefully resolve my dilemma with my Paint Metal Fabric hanging...

They look gorgeous, I like them very much! And Debbi, I struggle with you, I also have problems with this and also because I don't have the time. Couldn't anyone write a quick course for people like us?

Like you Debbi I have struggled and still do. I respond even though I haven't got time because some people are upset if you don't. There should be a button you can press which says 'No response necessary' Just like there should be a button which says 'Have looked at your blog today and still love everything you do', because I find it so hard sometimes to think of something different to say that I end up not saying anything as I worry the maker will think I don't mean it.
