Keep it up.



A personal note from Meg:

Those of you who are long-time Shabby Blogs fans know that I am a mom and wife first and a blogger and designer second.  I made the mistake of looking up Shabby Blogs on a search engine last night and I cried when I read some of the results.  People expect a lot from Shabby Blogs and I appreciate that.  My own high standards are what make SB what it is.  But the truth is, I can't answer every email.  I can't respond to every comment.  I can't be every single person in the whole wide world's personal tech support.  I can't give any more than I am giving and still be the kind of mom and wife and human being that I can live with.  And so, like everyone else, I do my best.

Thank you with all of my heart to those of you who are kind to me- and also to Keren whose contribution to Shabby Blogs I am infinitely grateful for.  Thank you for becoming sponsors of this blog and our website.  Thank you for visiting our sponsors.  Thank you for saying thank you.  Thank you for being patient.  Thank you for taking the time to leave sweet and supportive comments, not only here, but all over the internet. Thank you for understanding that behind this wonderful place is a person...with real feelings and real challenges and a real family and also a real desire to help you and offer you beautiful things that don't cost you a penny.  I am so truly grateful for those of you who show us these kindnesses because they are what inspire me to push myself further and give of myself more.  Please keep it up and I will too!

  2. Let me at 'em! HOW ON EARTH anyone can be unpleasantly disrespectful to someone that gives so beautifully and generously? You do what you've been doing. Us appreciative and adoring fans COMPLETELY outnumber those old, fuddy-duddy sticks-in-the-mud. HUGE HUGS!

  3. Awe! I am so sorry that you have had to deal with this. I recently started blogging and I have question how I will deal with such negativity. It's bound to happen and when it does, I can only hope I will handle it with as much grace as you have. Thank you for being such an inspiration.

  5. Je suis navrée qu'on ait pu vous blesser alors que vous êtes si généreuse en offrant votre travail. Ces personnes qui critiquent ne sont pas capables elles-mêmes d'en faire autant, et sont jalouses sans nul doute. Soyez assurée de mon amitié,

  8. Meg,

    I use your beautiful work on my blogs. I don't believe that I have ever said thank you. I apologize for that. THANK YOU! Thank you for doing the work that you do and for blessing so many.

    With abundant appreciation,
    Terry

  11. My first blog template, was your design, and always will be grateful... thank you, THANK YOU!
    Family has to be always first. If someone can't understand that, maybe because they have no family life and that's why they have no idea what thats means.
    Love you work!

  12. Please don't be hard on yourself, ignore those people who are critical; who only moan and are generally negative. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR BLOG AND ALL YOUR HARD WORK, :-) You are amazing, running a family, a home AND this wonderful blog. You will always have my appreciation and that of everyone else who loves and follows your blog, for the work that you do.
    Thank you with all my heart xxx

  13. I'm sorry you were hurt by unkind comments made about your blog. I often find myself thinking that the world has become a colder, harsher place, but the truth is that there have always been thoughtless, selfish people. The internet just makes it more obvious because we have contact with more of them. Do what you do best. Take care of your family. The rest of life will fall into place where it needs to be.

  14. The Internet is an amazing and wonderful tool. But unfortunately it has also become an implement of incredible ugly and obnoxious expression. As much as it is a gift, it is also used by unhappy people as a weapon. I see it in the comments left after articles in my local paper. I swear, it could be a report of a kitten being rescued from a tree and people would blame it on a liberal conspiracy spearheaded by the President. lol

    I agree with the other commenters. This is a lovely site and you have been incredibly generous with your time and talents. It is horrible and unfair to be the focus of such offensiveness. It is completely unwarranted. Although it is easier said than done, try not to let the negativity bring you down. Don't allow their misery to taint something that is positive and fun and gives so many people pleasure in so many ways.

    I am so sorry this has occurred, but I am confident you will be able to keep your focus where it is most important and you will stay positive. Thank you for all you have shared with your Internet family. :)

  15. I visit your site regularly and have never left a comment and it is definitely time for that to change, I want to say thank you. I love seeing the creative things you come up with but it sounds like your priorities are definitely in line 9as they should be)

    Thanks for the fun, creativity and joy you give to us visitors and for taking the time to share your talents!

  24. Meg, I almost never comment on blogs like this, but this time it is worth it. Keep up your good work. Shabby blogs was my first blog template, and hopefully I'll never need to go elsewhere for blog decor. You have been a tremendous blessing to countless people. Your generosity is rare and wonderful in this world. Thank you for being an inspiration and encouragement to others: wife/mother first and first-rate blogger second. I hope that never changes about Shabby Blogs.
