When I saw Wendy's post last week I was totally shocked as I owe a huge debt to the Handmade Monday's community. My very first blog post was written in May 2013 (here if you want to see it) and it had 0 readers and 0 comments. In fact my first few posts were all the same. I was new, not really sure what I was doing and stumbling in the dark as I had no idea how to get people to read my blog. Then I stumbled upon Handmade Monday...
The first week I read through all the blogs but didn't join myself (too scared and unsure) but it seemed a very friendly place, so I took a deep breath and linked up this post on the 3rd June 2013 and I haven't looked back since.
Handmade Monday really is a caring and supportive community - as demonstrated by the widespread dismay at it ending and the encouragement to continue here.

I've created a new button for your sidebars or websites if you would like to use it. You can find it here and I must say a huge thanks to Emma of ItsEmmaMade for doing the clever coding thing. However if someone has a better idea for an image for the badge I'd love to see them (I've gone with my foolproof "if in doubt use my logo" solution) In fact, maybe we should have a fun mini-competition and choose a new badge together? Let me know what you think.
