FEELIN' THE LOVE

Boy, oh boy!!! I sure wasn't expecting an overwhelming 255 comments of support to my last post! I had no idea how much appreciation there is for my iPICKS efforts! Stampers are the nicest people! THANK YOU !!!!

Many of you apologized for not leaving comments before today. There is no need to apologize! I know better than anyone how time consuming it is to leave comments, and I am more guilty than anyone for not leaving them!

Another perk to all those sweet comments was that I found several new blogs to be inspired by! If you have a blog with mostly Stampin' Up! artwork you think I might not be aware of, feel free to bring it to my attention in a comment post, and I'll be sure to add it to my Google Reader.

One more thing .... several of you asked about how my daughter is doing since her accident last summer. She is completely recovered, and has been back at college since January. Thanks for asking, and thanks for all the prayers and support!

I'll be back with iPICKS 143 in a few hours!

You sure deserve all that support for sure! I am a "follower" and have been one who never commented, even though I should have. Thanks so much for pulling this together. I can only imagine the time it takes you!

Stephanie said...

Ho boy, great response by you and by all the faithful followers of your blog!

Nancy, I so appreciate your efforts to share others fabulous creations. I look at a lot of blogs during the week, but like you I work outside the home full time and it is my Sunday night treat to peruse your blog for the ones I wasn't able to catch up with during the week!!

So thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you share - cards, family, sad times and good time.

I look forward to your picks every Sunday. I am sure that I am not the only one.

Cindy said...

Your blog is such a great inspiration to me and I look forward to it every week. I feel that your sharing of other people's creations and listing their websites is so unself on your part. You are being kind to other demonstrators and a real team player. THANKS!!

Nancy - I love seeing your picks every week. I haven't been blog surfing lately, so was shocked to see the comment in your last post. I appreciate your IPICKS and thank you for posting them!

Can't wait for the new IPicks!!! I always look forward to them too!

Mary Hayes said...

Nancy ~ you're so sweet to post many I-picks with the person's name/link of where it came from, to inspire us.

I LOVE the I-picks ~ so many creative ideas in 1 place!! Your blog is one of my frequent bookmarked places that I can't live without.

Shame on anonomymous for posting such a rude, insulting comment & you answered with a good attitude.

You have many followers who love you & have watched you go thru so many things.

Hurry up with the next I-picks! can't wait!!!
Mary Hayes :)

Nancy,
I have always considered it a great honor to have you pick any of my projects for iPicks. It's like winning an award! I literally get excited every week to see who made the list. It is a win-win situation for everyone who gets featured. I always see a big increase in traffic to my site...not that it really matters. I blog because I am passionate about sharing what I love, not to get the numbers. You are such a sweetheart and I consider you such a good friend. You are always welcome to share my projects on your blog! Hugs!

Nancy, I am sorry I have not been in a few days, just so busy. I haven't told you how much I appreciate your iPicks. I come here and see so many wonderful cards. It is like going to convention and swapping. You highlight mine sometimes and I appreciate that as well. You bring others to my blog and you ask for nothing. I have had offers to send my projects for money and put someone elses name on my projects and post others in the groups on my blog, Now they want something. I am always honored when you post one of mine because I know that you think it is special. Keep up the good work, there is nothing I enjoy more than seeing other Stampin'Up! projects!

Sending you lots of love and hugs!

Mwah!

I love coming to your page! Thank you so very much for doing it! No one has the same style so its nice to see a variety of projects in one spot! and you do share info and give credit due to the artist! Some people can be rude and hide behind " anonymous" Being a bully and causing hurt to others. I support what your doing and happy to keep coming back! HUGS!

Terry Blais said...

I appreciate my card being selected on your iPICKS. I get many more "hits" on my blog too. I think it's great fun, whether I have a card featured or not! I love seeing the variety you offer in your selections.

Share what you love, and love what you share!

I am one of those people who didn't have time yesterday to post a comment. I was reading your post while eating breakfast before my son's 9th birthday party day...which was a VERY busy day...but fun! I was FLABBERGASTED!!! I couldn't believe someone could have been so cruel to you. I am SO sorry that person did that to you!! And just know, there are MANY more of us who LOVE to see your top picks of the week!! I agree with you....I love having all the best week's picks in one place. Plus, you show me new blogs I start following because I like their work. So....keep up the GREAT work!!!! I have a new blog and occasionally post cards on there (I promise to be better now that the kids are back in school)....if you ever want to check it out it's kimberlyskards.blogspot.com ....I'd love to have a few more followers....I barely have any. LOL....have a GREAT day!!!!

Nancy Berg said...

I am glad all your "friends" have stepped up to show support!! I LOVE checking out your blog each Monday to see who is being featured that week! Thank you so much for all your work in helping to make sure we never miss someone's beautiful creations!! :-) Thanks again, Nancy!!

Nancy, I don't comment very often but I can't go another day without telling you. . . That hateful remark made by anonymous hurt not only you, but all of us who love and follow you. It is through YOUR blog that I have been introduced to so many other stamper friends whose blogs I totally enjoy and visit every week. I appreciate the time you spend passing along your own ideas, as well as, giving credit to and encouraging other stampers. I sincerely hope you don't let this person's nasty remarks keep you from being the sweet, unselfish, person that you are. I love you and I am truly thankful for all you do.
Hugs and blessings,
Judy B.

Thank you for the time you put into this site. I have found several sites that I follow because of your post. Thank you! I truly enjoy your ipicks!! :)

I'm sorry some people cannot appreciate your efforts. I'm sure it is hard to see anything with their head in their buttocks.

Nancy,
It's obvious that "anonymous" has no clue of the nice thing you are doing for all of those cardmakers out there that you show us through your IPicks! What a kind service you are performing for THEM....and for US, your readers. I personally have loved your blog for a couple of years now and it is my number one "go to" blog. If I could read only one, it's yours. So, keep up your wonderful work and thank you so much from all of us SU card makers out there who need inspiration. WE all appreciate you and are not shy about telling you!
God Bless,
barb hendrickson

I also am one that rarely posts comments but I truly look forward every week to seeing what you have chosen for iPICKS. A lot of inspiration on your blog whether it be your creations or the creations of others.

Julie said...

Nancy you are wonderful. Don't let the turkeys get you down. I absolutely love your projects and your ipicks. I love all the other blogsites you list not only on your ipicks but on your permanent information. It is a great resource and I appreciate it and you very much. Thanks for all you do. I know it must take quite a bit of time. You are wonderful!

Melissa said...

I love your blog and check it weekly to see all of the wonderful artwork others do. You have nothing to worry about from that nasty comment. Obviously, someone is very disgruntled about something in his/her life and chose to target you which is very unfair. Keep it coming girl! I look forward to seeing your posts.

Dawn Easton said...

oh my freaking goodness Nancy! That was a ridiculous emails from them but your response totally rocked! I STALK your blog weekly for your post hehe! You KNOW that I adore you :) I miss chatting with you. Now that you and I have both gone back to work full time it isn't as easy. One of these days SOON I am going to make my way to see you! Big hugs my friend!

Stacey said...

Just adding my support. I look forward to the variety of blogs I get exposure to. With all the different styles out there, it can be hard to focus sometimes. Thanks for all you post!

Nendy said...

I also enjoy your posts. You like the same type of things I enjoy, so I am finding new places to look too. Thanks.
