Hello there! Hope you all had great Easter breaks. Mine was fabulous. The Son and I hit Margaret River hard, well sort of, if you call napping, eating, drinking, sightseeing, DVD watching, knitting baby garments for a friend’s impending birth, kangaroo and kookaburra spotting hitting it hard. Of course, lots of chocolate and hot cross buns.
Spud not very happy about goodbye cuddles.

The indoor/outdoor spa….heaven.
Spa treatments, can you tell who’s mother is the beautician??

A little something that’s been on my mind lately, manners in the blog world. Warning, slight soap box rant here, stop reading if this will offend! Too often I read in blogland others criticising or leaving passive aggressive comments, often anonymous. Especially the nasty comments. I’m not referring to my land here as things are pretty mild in the land of Craftapalooza. Why mention this now? Well there’s the recent Kathy Sierra nastiness which is terrifying, then I was reading Cara’s site and via her found this article about manners in the blog world. I’ll leave you with this, we all started our blogs with our own personal reasons and we all put out there what we feel comfortable sharing. Other’s opinions are just that, opinions. At the end of the day if I want to post about my rosy crafty life, that’s what I’ll do, I don’t feel the need to share a lot of the "real life" stuff, I come here to post mostly about the positive crafty stuff in my life and I think we all need to learn a little empathy, be less judgemental and more accepting about each other’s differences and also sameness. Aside from all that, you don’t like what you’re reading at someone’s blog, stop reading, step away from the keyboard and don’t write that petty negative comment, you’ll feel a whole lot better for it.
