One year old my blog is - Hooray !

Hello you lovely one! I'm very happy that you come here and read my blog. Today my blog is one year old Yay! and I want to thank You. 

Yes, writing this blog has been a joy and a pleasent learning journey. I've learned to know so many talented makers like Michele Michael from Elephant Ceramics, Frieda Mellema Lab 71, Dietlind Wolf, Dana Tanamachi, Diana Saldaña from Royal Caballito and so many more. Seen talented work. Got some really good advices from great people like Holly Becker from Decor8, Katrina from Puglypixel and many more. Enjoyed reading blogs like Jealous Curator, Hello Sandwich, Bloesem, Poppytalk and the list goes on. Felt really happy when I heard that Book By Its Cover blog by Julia Rothman will continue. There are so many nice blogs finefinebooks, Fine Little DayRaincoast Cottage I've read and so many more and I'm happy we are all here. I've pinned like a mad woman in Pinterest all the wonderful ideas and pics. There are many great things in the air. Maybe I have even learned to write better English. Hope so. 

I'm thrilled about new posts of new exciting things which are coming up. But before that I'm going to take a pause - a real pause - in using computer and being online. I will close my mac for whole February. It's deep winter here. Do I survive? I have to walk to library again to get some good books and read magazines. I can make new plans and my own things like painting, sewing, crafts, those lovely handmade things. Or just drink green tea and coffee of course and enjoy of doing nothing. Can't wait! 

So we will see next time in March with new things and ideas. Maybe even a new look here in Gretchen Gretchen. Till then with these encouraging words in snow:
