If there was ever a time when the world needs Baubles of Joy, it's now! So let's all rally and choose to keep having baubles of joy in our hearts and kindness in our actions and everything will be all right. Right?
I mean, right?!
Yes, I'm one of those perky obnoxious people. (Perky, not pesky, but I can see how you could misread that.) Until the world actually comes to an end, let's do the the thing that bring us joy.
Did you notice a little hitchhiker on my card above? Here is another view:
Soooo, have you been seeing a lot of purple and gold in Blogland this week? There has been a flurry of cards being made for the current Less Is More challenge as a tribute to LIM's fearless leader, Chrissie Stokes. Chrissie is taking a break from LIM due to all the fun she is having playing with her grandchildren and traveling with her husband.
I've mentioned before that Less Is More was one of the first challenges I entered when I first started my blog. I really had no idea what I was doing nor what all the crazy aaaackronyms meant and this hobby uses a TON (just meaning ton, the amount) of them. I was a bit lost to say the least.
I would enter LIM and then get very direct comments from Chrissie about my entries because I either wasn't playing by the LIM rules or I was unclear about what "CAS" and "white space" meant. I took the comments as the constructive criticism they were meant to be and I would email Chrissie with questions. She very kindly answered my many, many questions over several months and mentored me about the ways of Blogland, the ins and outs of challenges, and what all those aaaackronyms meant.
I am forever grateful for Chrissie's help and I have since tried to pay it forward by helping other new bloggers. Chrissie and I have become close friends, have visited each other's homes, and I have discovered how kind and fun and funny Chrissie is IRL. I will miss her at LIM, but I look forward to seeing her return there now and then and on her own excellent blog, Simply One of a Kind.
Thank you, Chrissie! I'm sure Sarah and the talented Design Team will keep everything running like clockwork while you enjoy your break!
I'll leave with a chuckle, possibly even a snort!
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by so I can be sure and return the flavor!
