Thank you! A smooch for everyone!

Never in my wildest dreams did I think Today's Creative Blog would be what it is. TCB was just something I started on a whim.........I loved searching for other blogs that shared my obsessions for decorating, crafting and creating. I thought how wonderful it would be if someone had a blog that did the foot work for you.....a hub of craftiness. In that small time frame of 5 minutes, I started Today's Creative Blog. You know how I just jump in before testing the waters? Thank God this water has been lovely. My first post was my dear online friend Nancy Jones and I've never looked back. Of course in the beginning I thought I could do a feature daily, but feeding my family, teaching classes......the life that I lead got in the way at times. Darn it!

I have met so many wonderful online friends. The warm nature of people who visit my blog keeps me going. I love keeping people and myself inspired with the talent of others. I love helping people realize they ARE inspiring to others. And selfishly, I keep myself inspired by everyone's talent.

With the growth of TCB, I have been fortunate to have people who think it's worth it that I sit here and plunk out a feature every couple days. It sure makes it easier to justify the time I spend on the computer and avoid my home list of to do's.
Thank you to all my advertisers. Thank you to all my readers. I feel very fortunate that I can make a little bit of a living doing what I absolutely enjoy. And at the same time it allows me to promote the creativity in others.
I can guarantee that all my sponsors are creative in please pay them a visit. Several have great ideas for Christmas gifts too.

Created By Mom
Motherhood is truly divine, but it can be difficult to remember that while covered in spit up, drowning in dirty dishes & stressing over making ends meet. Often moms start their own businesses as a way to have more time at home with their families. The chic boutique is a classy place for moms to sell the products they have created, while also enjoying the famous Mom-Vendor Discount (20% off any other item in the boutique!).

What you do is so helpful. I don't have the time to pour through all of them so your site is perfect. It introduces me to things I may have missed. I do, however, feel totally uncrafty after each post though LOL I didn't realize how many crafty people are bloggers!! I just blog...but I am inspired to try and join to craft team!!!!
thanks for the motivation and to one day get on your TCB!!!! I have high goals for '09
