Anniversary and Follower Feature

     
Next week will mark the two year anniversary of Red Door Home!

I wanted to thank each and every one of you for joining me on this incredible journey. Your kind words of encouragement and thoughtful comments mean so much. From the very first day, I have been amazed at the generous spirit of the blogging community. I have learned so much but more importantly have made so many wonderful and supportive friends along the way. Thank you all!


In addition to the friendships I have made, another rewarding part of blogging for me has been the emails I have received. You have sent me decorating questions, letters of encouragement, and pictures of projects completed based on RDH tutorials. I have to admit, it is thrilling to know you are actually inspired by the projects I have completed as well as the tutorials I have written.

Here is a recent email from a follower I wanted to share. Paula from Sweet Pea used my Spring Basket Tutorial to make a center piece for her mom’s birthday dinner. From the pictures below you can see Paula’s finished basket turned out a bit different than mine. To me this is what crafting is all about – seeing something which someone else made and then using your imagination to make it your own.

So again – thank you from the bottom of my heart for the past two years! Please keep those emails, comments and suggestions coming. I hope to continue to create, design and inspire for many years to come.
