Best news of the day!

 I am leaving on vacation this Friday and have a “To Do” list a mile long! Because of this I very hesitantly got up a whole hour early (which for a non-morning person like me is a nightmare!) just to try and accomplish some of the things on my list before the kiddos are awake and very alive. 
I was super shocked and totally honored to find an inbox full of messages telling me that my new best friend Kim was featuring me on her site! Stopped in my tracks, I went to her blog and read the nicest feature I think anyone has ever written about me!!! 
I had to take a second on here to let Kim know how grateful I am for that feature, it seriously has made my day! I also must say that the kids are now 13 minutes away from getting up and my extra hour of prep time has been pretty much wasted enjoying this spotlight! At least I will go about my crazy day with a smile on my face knowing that Kim from Today’s Creative Blog said I was “Simply Amazing.”

    I loved her feature! You are one of my favorite bloggers, so I wasn't surprised that others think you rock as well!

    Stephanie, are you serious? You were trash talked for your Home block? I thought it was hilarious, e-mailed it to two of my friends and we all vowed to make it at our next white elephant gift exchange….if that ever happens, lol. And I am a good Mormon Girl..I am :)

    I hate how women are so hard on one another. I think your blog is fantastic. I've loved it from day 1. It's a great mix of everything. Not too many link parties, not too many sponsors, not too many posts that make it so that I get tired of reading. It's perfect. Thank you for all of your resources and crafts.

    I just wanted to tell you because this is the second time that I have seen a post about someone being trash talked on blogging in the past week. Let's all support eachother!

    What??Someone trashed talked sweet you, you should of told us, we would have taken care of them for you HA HA! I personally think the block was way too funny! But we have a good sense of humor. I didn't even know bloggy msg boards existed, guess I'm living under a rock! You deserve this, you are amaazing!

    I thought the "home" block was so funny. I even showed it to hubby and he was dying with laughter and we're both good Mormons. I love your blog and that dinner sounds like it was too much fun.

    Hi Steph-

    I think you totally deserve to be featured. You are so organized and seem to have everything together. You are soon to have not one blog, but two, host link parties, are amazing with blog design. These are just a few things I know you can do from reading your blog. I am sure you do lots more as well, too. Congrats

    My best-

  12. Steph @ somewhatsimple says:

    Yep, I was trashed talked… BAD!!! On 2 posts, actually! And what was most upsetting was I recognized a couple of the commenters on the message boards as people who comment regularly on my blog as well as enter in my giveaways and the whole 9 yards! (You know who you are!)

    My first thought is always to respond and be mean, really, really mean. Then I want to get my blog posse and invade their threads with support of my projects. But once I settle down, I realize that those are the kind of people that would probably feed off my anger, so I leave it all alone and get over it- not worth my time!

    On a bright note, both times I was trashed drove so much traffic to somewhat simple! And I'd like to think that not all of the people from the message boards hated me- maybe some regular readers came out of all the trash talk! Plus I get all the positive support I need from other people that are nice on here- my readers are the best!… well, most of them anyway. (again, you know who you are!)

  13. Hi Stephanie! I was thrilled to see you featured on another favorite blog of mine today. You so deserve it. I've been a long time follower of yours ever since I saw the title of your blog. It sounded perfect for me as I am an "un-natural" crafter as opposed to those who are "naturally" crafty. I really have to work and work to get it right so I love the fact that you have such great ideas, but you also explain how to do your projects so easily that even I can do them….well, most of them. You know how they say some gardners have a green thumb? Well, in the world of crafting, I am ALL thumbs! =-) Also, don't worry about being criticized about your "home" project. All the greats in the Bible and in life have been criticized so I'd say you're in good company. Just don't stop blogging! I'd miss you too much! Blessings, Joy
