This is my 100th post, posted at 10:11 on 10/11/10!  When I started this blog just nine months ago I had no idea how much I would grow to love this space, and all the people I have connected with through it.  Thank you for making it so special

  8. Woooohoooooo! Doing a very gleeful happy dance..not quite the German Knee slap...but that sounds like a whole lot of fun! :) Wow! I can't remember the last time I won anything! Yay!! Thankyoooooou!

  9. Hello! You've been a busy lady - (love that skirt! I'm now looking forward to seeing your Spring collection. In the shops).

    I'm checking in with a food for thought comment for you from a dinner I was at last night - this from an artist and patron of the arts: "Crafting has to have it's foundations in technique, whereas art can be born out of passion alone." Interesting?

    Meanwhile referring to your earlier post - the need for validation I think is proportionally related to the size of emotional investment that you have in a project, in other words just how much it means to you to succeed at it. But when people give you validation it also shows that they care, and that always feels good, especially when it comes from people who we look up to and whose opinions we respect. x

  10. WOW! So happy to celebrate with you your 100 post. That is a fantastic accomplishment! Hope that Elizabeth is me!

    I will be finishing the postcard tonight! So much fun. I love all these new connections!

  11. Congratulations to the winners on those receiving those lovely postcards =-)

    and congratulations to you Beth for your 100th post!! isn't blogging and the community created around it the BEST?!!?!

  12. Congratulations on 100! You have shared so much with this world already... I'm looking forward to seeing you continue to spread your wings as you blog towards the next 100. You are a rare and loving light across the pond.
    Much LOVE, Danielle xo

  13. Congrats to you Beth! I have enjoyed your posts so very much! I look forward to them. I am so glad I got to meet you. You are truly an inspiration. Keep it coming girly!!!! You give me joy!

  14. Ahhh thanks so much everyone, your words have totally made my day (and it's only 9am!)

    Kathy - food for thought indeed and a discussion that comes up frequently. I am going to think more about it and post again on art vs craft some time in the future. And I think you are so right about the need for validity being related to your emotional investment in something. I always said you were a wise wise womanXx

  15. Dearest sweet beth, congratz to the 100th post! Such a wonderful achivement and a lovely giveaway!! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

  16. Hi Beth
