Some decisions are really tough ones.......


Good afternoon all you crafty Peeps, as the title of this posts suggests I have had to come to a really tough decision, I've been mulling it all over for a week or two and in the end bounced all the options off hubby, my number one craft critic and sounding block. 

As lots of you know I have been struggling with my fingers and hands for a few weeks now and typing has become an increasing nightmare, not only in the pain it inflicts but coupled with my lack of dexterity means I spend as much time making corrections as I do the initial typing and still I miss some and I know one or two have raised smiles here and there...................the very worse must have been the mistyped mention of the Big Sh(o)t!! And although I have a voice recognition programme, that has a mind of it's own as my speech can be iffy some days so again I need to do lots of correcting.

Some of you know I did try copy and paste commenting a couple of weeks ago but feel so guilty doing that when I am not able to return comments as I would wish so my next thought was to switch off the comment options totally on my blog, but this seems drastic when I know people often like to ask me questions.  

So for the time being I will try the compromise position using a copy/pasty solution to leave comments ......................but I hope this will at least let you know I do remain genuinely interested in what you are up to and that I have popped in. And I will leave the comments switched on for those of you who would still like to visit...............but as always whilst your generous and warm comments are always much appreciated I do not expect you to do so. 

At the end of the day we all draw inspiration from one another, those of us who say otherwise need a reality check................ and I make no secret that I do so enjoy visiting peoples blogs, seeing all your different creations and reading what you are all up to. Likewise the purpose of my blog remains as it did on day one, a place for me to share my ideas and projects along with the wonderful products I am often privileged to work with and hopefully offer some inspiration along the way.

Sorry to ramble on but it's been worrying me and needed saying and hope you understand it's a bit of a needs must scenario at the moment. I shall be doing regular posts with what I am able to create.......it's slow going and one project can take me a day..........often accompanied by a few linguistic expletives along the way, but I shall still be about one way or another.

  1. Oh Brenda please never think that I comment here just to expect a comment back...that is not the reason I leave comments anywhere in blog land! I do try to get around to commenting, I am not often successful but I always read the blogs I follow. I just don't have enough hours in the day to do everything. I love seeing what you are creating. The most important person to think about is you...you are quite correct to leave your commenting as you need your hands to continue to create. Please take care...when I first saw this title I thought you were giving up crafting and thought ...Noooo... so I am delighted to find this is not so. Hugs. Jane xx

  2. Hallo Brenda, I know you are struggling for some time now, so I don't mind that you stop reacting on my blog or even copy and paste if you like that. You must do what you want to do, just for yourself and thinking about getting better. I hope you don't shut down the reactions on your own blog as I always enjoy coming here and looking at your beautiful creations. (and get inspired :-)) Hope that you can still enjoy making your cards and blogging and that you will be feeling better soon.
    Take care!
    Love,
    Marianne

  3. Dear Brenda, please don't remove a comment box! mostly people are happy to say few kind and honest words to you
    with love from Russia!

  4. Hi Brenda, I think most of your loyal followers know enough about your physical condition to fully understand that leaving comments may be hard for you and is in no way a sign of disinterest. I'm happy to hear that you decided to allow us to leave comments on your blog, and I do hope that you will at least be able to keep on creating, since it is obviously something you love doing. And we all love to see what you create! So please don't worry about us, just concentrate on the things you can do!

  5. Brenda, do not worry about it, I totally understand and I,m sure everyone else does too. I have trouble too with my thumbs and I sometimes copy and paste.
    Take care and huggles from me. xxxx

  6. Don't even think of this as a problem B, if you have passed a blog and left a pasted comment the most important knowledge for the blog owner is that you passed the blog and made an impression, not that it was a unique one. I'm quite convinced that every one that knows you will be really happy about a "came by to see your creation/love B" kinda comment. I know it's enough for me!

  7. Dearest Brenda, please know that I love visiting your blog for your beautiful works and inspiration. I am really delighted when you visit my blog but I would be very upset if I thought that your making a comment causes you such pain, upset and significant time. Please pop by my blog only when you can but from this point on, please do not post any comment when you visit - that is an order! I know all too well the impact of illness and I genuinely would be cross with you to undertake commenting when that makes you worse. Concentrate just on maximising your own quality of health so that you can bring us all more lovely artwork. Love and very best wishes, Nicola x

  8. Aww Brenda, you really shouldn't worry, you are not the only one who copies and pastes because of dexterity problems. There are also some who do it who have no health issues. The important thing is to look after yourself. I love visiting and commenting and if you can't comment back that's fine with me. I too love getting inspiration and love your Nicecrane work. What a lovely man after I left a comment her he visited me and then I commented on his blog and he sent me some freebies, so unexpected. Shame he can't sell to the UK, if I understand him correctly. Love and hugs xx

  9.

  10. Hi Brenda, do not worry. I pass by your blog and love seeing your inspirational projects. That will not stop. I do not mind you leaving me a copy and paste comment or even not commenting at all. The most important thing is to look after yourself.

  11. Ditto to what the others have said. We all struggle to comment from time to time for varied reasons, and whilst I appreciate comments, I never expect to receive them. Please don't beat yourself up about it - life is for enjoying. Maddy x

  12. Hi Brenda, please don't worry about commenting as all your loyal followers do understand. I'm sure everyone who visits your blog is coming here to see your gorgeous creations, not for the 'return' comment. Just take care of yourself so that you are able to craft, and inspire us with your continued creativity.

  16. Brenda I love to visit your blog and see your wonderful creations and leaving you comments on how beautiful I think they are, you certainly are an inspiration to me and many others. Please don't feel the need to be leaving me comments I would just like to think you had had a look around and enjoyed your visit. Do spend your time creating more beautiful projects for me to look at. I do hope though that things improve for you in the near future.

    Love & hugs Pat xx

  17. Dear Brenda, I visit your blog and others often but most of the time I don't leave a comment because if I did every time I would hardly get any time to post anything on my own blog :) I don't expect you to leave a comment each time you visit me either, Im just glad that people have come to visit and like what I do. Please don't worry about it at all :)

  18. Don't ever feel like you have to visit me back Brenda. I love coming over to see what you've made. You and your creations inspire me - to never let my back take over completey and even though the fingers ache at times it keeps them mobile. Concentrate on enjoying your creations and don't worry about us - take care of you and yourself first huni and hopefully things will improve with time and stop stressing about us lot lol! Hugs x

  19. Saw the title of your blog post and panicked that you were giving up crafting! I am very relieved to see that isn't the case. Just wanted to echo what others have said that people will understand and that people will not expect comments back. Save your energy for crafting!

  20. Brenda, I don't think you need any more reassurance :D .....so many people to comment and to say you are loved !! Take care and Hugs ..........

  25. Hi. Please don't worry about commenting back. We love to visit your blog and I have learnt a lot from your tutorials . Hope you feel better soon :))

    ReplyDelete
  26. Poor Brenda! Your regular loyal followers know about your health issues - we come here to see your fantastic cards and to leave love for you and them - anyone who comments just to get a comment back has the wrong end of the blogging stick I think :/ Your cards are an inspiration to me, and I love seeing them, I leave comments to tell you that - and if you choose to leave me a comment back then great - but if not, it's no biggie :)

    Hope you feel better soon

    Big hugs from Tags xx

  27. Brenda, like others have said, I visit here because I enjoy your beautiful work! No one should feel they have to pay return visits and leave comments, least of all if it causes so much hardship... You should use the energy and time you have to create is what I think. Having said that, I hope and pray that there will be times where you have relief of your health problems, I can't imagine how awful it must be to struggle like that.

    ReplyDelete
  28. No problem Brenda. I love visiting and don't expect you return as you have so many loyal visitors it would take you an age to visit us all.
    All the best Ali x

  29. Really sorry to hear how you're struggling Brenda and please don't worry about the lack of comments as I'm sure it must be difficult with your mobility problems.
    I too am struggling through lack of time so apologies from me if I don't come and visit as often too.
    You take care of yourself.

  31. Please do not feel you have to visit me back...I know your health problems and totally understand.
    I can not think of anyone who would not mind a copy and paste comment though.

    I have arthriitis (Dish and OA) and my neck and spine are the worst. There are days I can not sit to type and so I drop off the face of the earth and feel guilty too. But I have enough good days that I eventually catch up a bit! You do nott always have that luxury and so need to do whatever it takes to allow you to craft in your own fashion.

    Do not worry about me girl, I will be there, looking at your gorgeous cards and taking inspiration from the fact that you made them even though you were struggling with pain. Your work inspires many people Brenda...that is your gift!!!

  32. Brenda you are an inspiration and it is always a pleasure to see what you have created.
    Please don't ever feel you have to comment.

  34. I think I'm exactly the same as everyone else who has left you comments here today. I visit your blog because I want to see and read about what you've been up to not because I want you to visit me back!! - although you are always welcome!
    I hope things improve for you soon, you must do what is best for your health, and not worry about it!

  36. OMG don't you dare feel guilty about doing comment and paste, i come by, as i'm just in awe of what you create and so wished i lived nearer you, so i could come round and learn from the 'Master', Luv Sam x

  37. Hi Brenda, just for a minute there I thought you were going to stop blogging altogether and that would be too awful. I quite understand your dilemma and, because of my sister's experiences, am fully aware of how the fingers sometimes refuse to do the walking and the tongue refuses to do the talking. Like Viv above, I don't expect you to return any visit I make to you, or leave a comment either ... heavens, I'm not always well enough to do that either but, as you so rightly say, we draw inspiration from each other and that is good enough for me. I would miss the pleasure I get from not seeing your wonderful creations so, please, feel no guilt from not commenting. Take care and I hope your symptoms improve soon. Elizabeth xx PS: some good news from my sister who has just been all the way down to Sheffield to see a specialist because of the neuralgia she has been experiencing in her face for years - she has had several operations to try to ease the pain ... this surgeon has prescribed some new treatment which seems to be helping her deal with what was excruciating pain and so, for now anyway, there's no need for more surgery :)

  38. Hi Brenda you are one lovely lady and do not need to make excuses to anyone here in blogland - you put in so much hard work and support in all you do. I know you visit many blogs every day including mine please do not comment on mine, l hope others feel the same as l do too and wish you pain free and happy days, take care x Susan x

  39. Hi Brenda, you do not have to worry about leaving comments, none of us mind if you dont or if you copy and paste, we all love visiting your blog and seeing what you have been up to, you are a great inspiration to me and I know to many others too, and we love you!!

  40. I am so sorry that you are suffering so much that you have had to make this decision,
    I don't comment on people's blog because I want a comment back, I comment because I like the work that goes into the card(not always the image lol, we all have our own tastes, good job)

    I am certain that you will still have lots of people commenting and I for one will not expect a comment back, a very big thank you for all the comments that you have left me in the past.
    It would be dreadful not to see your creations and you are an inspiration to many.
    Hope things improve.

  41. Brenda I totally understand as I had to make a similar decision not long ago. I too feel guilty sometimes but commenting some of the time is better than not at all and I am sure everyone understands. It would be a very sad day if we lost you in blog land Brenda.

  42. Thanks for that B although I can only reiterate what the other lovely peeps have said.

Take care and see you soon xx

Oh Brenda - you are such a lovely lady - and you have such issues to deal with - please don't feel you need to comment on my work - I totally understand but I also hope that you will be happy for me to remain commmenting on yours - we do all draw inspiration from one another - thats one of the best things for me about blogging.... please do take care and keep well!

  44. Brenda, please don't think that we will take offence - I for one don't mind if you can't leave a comment at all. I was fearing that you were going to say you were having to stop blogging completely, so to see that you are continuing is a great pleasure. I hope you get some respite from the pain again soon. Sending much love, Helen. xx

  45. Hi Brenda. like Elizabeth above ,for one horrid moment I thought you were going to stop blogging and that would be a disaster !
    I ,for one, don't comment to get comments back but because I genuinely love what I see and want to express my appreciation and I will continue doing that as usual. While I always love getting comments on my blog it's not the reason I have it. I do hope you start to feel better soon.

  46. Oh Brenda, please don't feel that you have to even leave comments, it is such a pleasure to visit you and see your wonderful creations.

  47. hi brenda, like all the commenters before me, i completely understand. you need to take care of yourself and create when you can and only comment if you can - people understand, especially because you're so open about your disability. i've had to cut back on commenting too, but your blog is in my reader and whenever i see one of your cards, i oooh and aahhh; i just don't always come here to mention that.

  49. I've been off the grid for a while and haven't blogged or visited anyone else's blog since July. I am sorry to read that you are having health issues and pray for the best for you. I too am glad that you are still creating and blogging as I really enjoy seeing your creations. I don't care if you visit me back or comment to me, I just enjoy your stuff. I hope things get better for you. Pain is no fun!:(

  50. Hi Brenda, I am so sorry sweetie that you are in so much pain! I must say that hearing this I am amazed at all the yumminess you still manage to make! I now realize how big an effort that must be for you as well. I am glad you can at least still do your crafting. Never mind about the commenting, I would not want you to suffer on my account. And reading all the comments that preceded mine, I think you will not be lacking any visits from us all, don't you worry about that. I hope that there will be some medicin for you that will help you ease the pains. Big hug from the Netherlands, XXXXXXXX Frea

  51. Not to worry, post when you can and comment on your good days . We all craft because we love it and do get inspired by each other. I give you credit for all you do but the one thing you should never forget is you are #1 and your health comes first. As far as spelling or grammar, heck I have people who leave nasty comments about my grammar every once in a while and I know it might hurt, but if they don't like my mistakes they do not have to read them. Brenda please take care of your self and never worry about the small things!

  53. Brenda, I wish I could copy and paste your post to my blog's side column. This year has brought one relapse after another, and my fingers are soooo not cooperating and fumble fingers have become exceedingly sore fingers that feel like they are broken and full of lightning surging thru them. Please never feel you must leave a comment on my blog -- or -- just sign it with your sweet little "Bx" I'll know who it is and what you mean. love,

  57. Hi Brenda, yes I was half expecting this Im so sorry for you love, but having a daughter with the same problem I understand, she had me altering a skirt for her this year which is very unusual for her as shes very particular about her clothes so I supposed I should be honoured she felt I was up to it, and thank goodness it turned out well.

  58. Brenda there is no need to worry at all. I'm sure everyone understands. I love popping by your blog and seeing the amazing creations you make. Sometimes I don't always leave comments on people's work, just for the lack of time with the boys etc, but doesn't mean we don't care. Don't you worry over commenting I'm sure people much prefer for you to put your health first... And any time you may have into your love of crafting not commenting lol. Take care.. Bug hugs Kelly

  60. Phew! Panic over. I read the post title and thought perhaps you were going to be unable to craft and post your creations on here.

As long as you can keep crafting and sharing with us I am sure that will keep us all more than happy.

  68. Totally understandable ♥ I too struggle with health issues, aches and pains, and that's one of the reasons why I've been away for a year, and just recently returned to blogland. I more than often skip writing long comments unless it's something I really want to say - and think that to copy/paste commenting is totally ok to show that one popped by! Also creating cards and transfer them into our blogs is timeconsuming enough I think. Making blogentries both for your own sake, as well as everyone elses viewing pleasure is good enough - long descriptions and shortstories to go with the creations is not always neccessary, and everyone understands that I'm sure ♥ Keep the creativity flowing!

  72. My son has a speech recognition programme and it does take alot of practicing before it gets to the point where it can work properly regardless of voice fluctuations. He use to have an old version as he was growing up and had trouble when his voice changed as he went through puberty but the newer version even works for him when he has cold and a sore throat. Either way I'm sure all your friends in blogland will understand.

  73. Regarding lack of blog comments, the last thing you need do is apologise, Brenda.
    We all know you are experiencing difficulties so don't burn yourself out trying to be a good blogger.
    I ( for one) would rather that youl be able to carry on and show us your new creations when you can manage a little post even a very brief one. It does take time to do a blog post so I hope you only do so only when you feel fit enough.
    I'm always very happy to know that you have stopped by my blog but I'd rather know that you are taking care of yourself.

    With love

  76. Hi Brenda, we were having Internet troubles when I tried to leave a comment regarding this post and my first comment froze. I meant to get back sooner. Please do not worry about leaving comments at my blog or if you leave a cut/paste that is perfectly fine, whatever is good for you. I've been honored that you come to visit with having so many followers and your health issues. From the number of comments at this post, I'm sure everyone understands and we certainly don't want you to turn off the comment capability. Please take good care of yourself and I hope you can continue to do what you love as your designs are so beautiful. I'm sure they bring you joy along with your MANY followers.

  78. Please don't even consider turning off your comments. When people leave me comments they are sunshine, every one is precious, but I don't believe that we have to give to receive or expect to receive when we give. I comment when I am inspired, impressed or just for the joy of sharing some good will. I know more people visit than comment and that's OK. There are many reason why people don't comment and I respect that but don't deny them the opportunity to share their appreciation of your craft. Your projects are lovely. Do what you can, when you can and let us leave a little sunshine in return.

  79. You have no need to apologise Brenda. You obviously have to cope with so much and you are such an inspiration on how you keep going and do your best to keep sharing your ideas and inspiration with everyone.

    Take care of yourself. (((hugs))) X X

  80. Brenda, please do not worry at all about the comment, and please DO leave the comment box on. I never expect you to leave me a comment because I do, and then I know that when I don't, I know you understand that it's because I'm a tad busy. I come here for the inspiration, I loove your cards and the passion you put into them , you are so creative and I really really hope you will be well soon again xxx Take care of yourself xxx

  82. I´m also very slow. And a project takes me a day to do or sometimes more...
    SO I fully understand and want you to know that you absolutely don´t have to
    feel stressed to comment back on me when I leave a comment on your blog.

    I do it because I want to.
    Because I love you work and your generous personality.
    NOT because I expect you must comment back on my blog .
    Of course I appreciate when you do it though ;)

    You have so many followers so it would be a full time job to visit them all the time.
    Puh!

    I wish you a wonderful, peaceful weekend!

    Hugs
    Susan

    PS. I hope my english was ok...

  83. Hey there Brenda, I love visiting your blog and just like to leave a comment as I think your work is beautiful. I also enjoy hearing about the weather over your way, the dogs and your family. There is no way I expect you to leave a comment over my way especially as I know that typing is difficult for you. I would rather see your cards than comments. :-) Keep well.
