Meeting People You Already "Met"

You know blogging begins with a sharing of self and somewhere along the way, it becomes sharing with others who then become friends. A comment turns into a conversation. A conversation becomes a FaceTime chat. Each connection grows with more than talk about card stock or color. You begin to talk about personal challenges and kids and so forth. And then, if you are lucky you get to meet these folks that become part of your world.

Recently I spent time in Virginia visiting my dear friends JJ Bolton, Tessa Wise, Miriam Prantner, and Jocelyn Olson. What were they like? Exactly as they were in those many conversations. It was easy, comfortable and like I was visiting my dear friends on an ordinary day. We knew common folks (all you bloggers out there) and chatted about our families. I had a great time eating and laughing and making cards! We stayed at JJ's house (a wonderful host)! I had such fun, I forgot to take photos! Here is the single blurry shot of the mantle with some our cards of the time together.

  3. Oh, I am SO jealous Wida! How wonderful to get the chance to spend time together!

  4. So fun! Anytime y'all wanna come to Hawaii I'd be more than happy to host!!

  5. I think we were having too much fun and we forgot all about our phones and pictures:)

    I'm SO glad that we finally got a chance to get together IRL. I feel exactly the same as you and I can't wait to do it again! Love ya!

  6. Wida, it is so FABULOUS when you get to meet & craft with your on-line buddies for real!!! :) :) :)
