Blogging Friends: Spotlight on Rebekka Read

Hello! I am going to be devoting more posts recognizing YOU my devoted readers! It takes a lot of time to read blogs and even more time to leave comments and I so appreciate all of you who do that, whether it's every day or only when you do find that time!

Thank you Rebekka for being such a faithful reader and commenter! The encouragement you leave keeps me wanting to make each post better than the the next! Look for a handmade thank you from me in the mail soon! :)

This is the first of many Reader Spotlights! Again, all your encouraging comments mean so much to me!
Do you know that a LOT of you though don't have any way for me to respond? Even if you don't have a blog, you can set up an email address in your Blogger profile, and I would love if you did! I feel just terribly when someone leaves such a long nice message or has a question and I try to click through and can't find an address to get in touch! Now I know many of you leave the comment just to leave it out of the kindness of your heart and don't expect a reply (one of my top commenters (or a little group of anyway!!) is "Anonymous"! ) but just want to make sure you know there is that option, if I am able, I do try to write back! :)
