Howdy, Kim! Congrats on the 200 (I'm on of them)!

I am eternally grateful for having the time and resources to pursue miniaturing. Crafting has been such a blessing to my life and a creative distraction from a health problem. I'm aware not everyone is fortunate enough to have either the leisure or resources to do minis or another form of craft while wishing that they could. My heart goes out to them.

HeatherWamble said...

Hi Kim! My name is Heather, and I'm more than excited to leave you a comment! =)

I'm thankful for so much- God, family, friends, health. And while those things are MOST important, I wanted to share with you two things that are passionately important to me other than the "most important" things.

First, I'm so thankful to be able to earn a living by my craft. Photography is my voice, my outlet, and my living!

Secondly, I'm so thankful that after YEARS of loving miniatures, I stumbled upon your webshots gallery, and learned that I'm not the only adult woman with a dollhouse and a crazy love for small things. That opened up a whole world of inspiration for me, letting me see that there are TONS of folks out there blogging about how they, too, LOVE minis! And, you've been so sweet to help me come in contact with others.

While I'm still working on my mini blog, here's the address for my photography blog:

Thanks, Kim, for being such a sweetie!
