I have been keeping this blog since the 12th of April 2010, a little over 3 months now, and I must tell you that I am enjoying every moment of it. It is truly an honour to be sharing this creative side of myself with you. I hope to keep doing this for a long while still!

During these past few months, many people have come for a short visit. Some have left a kind comment. Some have decided to make a commitment and return on a regular basis. As you know, these people are the "Michele Made Me followers".

Catherine, from The Sewing Attic, is a follower of my little sister's blog, Ariane's Crafts. So when my sister (so very kindly) advertised the first days of Michele Made Me on her blog, Catherine made the leap to my new little baby blog totally blind. She didn't know me! Not from Adam. Not from a hole in the ground. As far as she was concerned, I could be making crap over here. Or macaroni crafts (which I may yet do, be forewarned)! Nevertheless, she became a follower then and there, no questions asked. Since that time she has been amazingly sweet and consistent! She stops by very regularly and leaves a quip, a few words of encouragement, and more often than not, high praise! She is a very kind person and I thank her for that.

With that in mind, I felt I needed to show my gratitude in some way. So I made her this gift.

Thank you Catherine. You are a lovely follower and friend. I hope you enjoy your new crochet hook holder. Happy hooking! :)

A word to all Michele Made Me followers. You are so kind and generous. I am grateful to you all for making this bloggy adventure so special to me. Thank you for coming and I hope to "see" you again very soon!

Have a wonderful day!

  2. Michele-I'm so glad to see that your Followers list has gotten so big since I first came here! (It didn't take long!) Your blog is wonderful, pretty to look at, and truly inspiring!

Looking forward to seeing more of your creative endeavours but not sure of the macaroni! :)
