Gratitude

Well, it was a very special Valentine's Day season for Julie Ann Art. I am so thankful and honestly, just amazed. I knew this Valentine's Day was going to be bigger than past ones, but I had no idea just how busy it would be. A lot of that is because of this blog, and therefore you, so thank you!

I've expressed before how this blog has affected my life. The greatest benefit is that it has given me the ability to interact and connect with others. I've been able to build relationships with customers, fellow bloggers, and Etsy sellers.

With that said, I want to mention a few bloggers that really helped me out over the past month. They all stepped up to support a friend and that is something that's so great about the blogging community.  It's very special to me to have a group of girls who not only inspire me, but are there to help me out when I need it. I reached out to each of these girls because I respect them, their blog content, and their friendly etiquette. Definitely stop by their blogs and say hello, if you have not already, as they are all my daily "go-to" blogs! This is the least I can do to show my gratitude for their inspiration and support. I'm thankful to have their friendship.


Now, there's some one else I need to thank. (I'm going to warn you, this may get a little cheesy.) The number one contributing factor to me keeping my sanity (for the most part) over the last month, was Jordan. Without his constant support and help, I would most likely have turned into a crying ball of stress on the living room floor a couple of times.

It's a new thing for me to be in a relationship with some one who is so involved in my creative projects. Jordan honestly doesn't get enough credit for all the things he helps me with. So frequently these days I'm talking about ideas or brainstorming the next step, and he's always there to lend an ear and offer advice. It's really special for me to have some one like him. Thanks Bub! :]

  9. Congrats on your successful Valentine's season! I've read a few of these blogs, probably because I've seen them on yours, and they've become part of my regular blog readings. I will have to check out the rest. Your blog became one of my favorites in a span of a few days, I always enjoy your posts! And it was nice to read your thank you at the end. It's such a special thing to have that person who will help and encourage you.

  11. My boyfriend adored the card I gave him from your shop. He asked me how many other boyfriends I really had. I told him that was for me to know and him to find out.
