My heartfelt THANKS

I owe one giant, humongous, sincere, heartfelt THANK YOU to all of my readers, and especially to my cheerleaders, for believing in me from the very beginning, and encouraging me every step of the way.


THANK. YOU.


This weekend, I finished packaging an actual product line of my own creations. Some time soon in the next week, I will have a *big announcement* (eeee) which I have high hopes for. Neither of these giant steps would have happened for me, if it weren't for you.


Even for the small things, for the everyday support, for encouraging me to start crafting in the first place and putting my creations out there in the world. For kicking me in the jannypanties when I let my fear hold me back. For sending me ideas and things you think I'd like. For letting me borrow your craft tools!! For giving me honest feedback, even if you don't like something, because it helps me be better in the end. For buying my crafts on etsy!! For commissioning me to make you things! For helping me make things when I had too much to do. For teaching me. For spreading my name and my blog and etsy store out there among the web and among your family and friends. For putting up with my endless "What about this?" questions and revision after revision of things. For your compliments, which mean more to me than you can know.

All of these things you have done for me, and not one time has it gone unnoticed or unappreciated. The name of this blog might be jannypie.com, but the spirit of it is from each of you.

To every person who has encouraged me, supported me, given me feedback, bought something, read my blog, left a comment, listened to me talk, this is my thanks to you.



And to my especial cheerleaders- my husband Ryan; my mother-in-law Dawn; Andrea; Erin J; Steph W; Steph M; Pakito; Sandra; Natalie R; Kristin; Jody; Stacy of Kids~Stuff~World; Sarah; to all of the Nesties on the local Columbus board, including Danica, Allison, Amber, Beth Y, Liz M, Jill C, and Emily K; to all of the Nesties on the Decorating & Renovating board, especially sugardumpling, Katie of goodthingscatered, eating-butter, and whatwedding; and to Allison M; Merrygirl; Mandybeth; Natalie Y; Dusty; Emily R; Beth B; Lisa; Katie C; Carri; Kent; Jenna; Kelly; Dawn; Diana, Angela and Aly. These people have been there from the beginning, and it is from our roots that we gain our greatest strength. Thank you with all of my heart.
(Sorry if I forgot anyone's name, please don't be offended, its a long list of people, and I appreciate EVERYONE).
