Friends who have joined the Fellowship of the Flowers. It has been so much fun sharing this adventure with you so far. Teaching and sharing is my passion. I love to inspire people and encourage them to have fun and be creative.
I truly appreciate, love and want to give you a great big hug for joining the Fellowship. This is my full time job, not a hobby. This is how I earn a living. I work 12 - 14 hours a day seven days a week. I spent over 6 months designing, preparing and paying a graphic designer to put this Fellowship together. I spend many hours each week photographing, writing blog posts, and writing the project patterns to share with you. Not to mention designing new things and doing all the accounting, packaging, shipping and schlepping to the post office.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing that designers and artists deserve to be paid for bringing their visions and ideas to you. If it weren't for the people who come up with the ideas, you would have to do it yourself and you don't have time for that. hee,hee,hee. Plus, everyone would work all the time as there would be nothing fun to entertain you. ;)
Thank you for purchasing my patterns, my book and kits. You support a small business. You help me pay my light bill, buy food, pay for Hannah's medicine and also allow me to donate $25 a month to Great Lakes Rabbit Rescue. You help me give to others who just need a little bit of happy in a sad time.
You reap what you sow (sew). When you purchase your own patterns, your own books and your own memberships you bring joy to the artist or designer who worked very hard and had to pay others for their work in creating it.
You show respect, love and kindness, which is something we all want. You spread joy and goodness where too many people think it is ok to "shoplift" from the quilting world.
Thank you for bringing me joy and for making it possible for me to continue to create things that in return, bring you joy. After all, life is about sharing love and kindness with one another. What goes around comes around and that is the truth.
