Yesterday i discovered that one of my favorite site's has decided to stop.
A digital challenge blog with a small but lovely group of crafters and hosted by Vron.
I'm so sorry to see it close because Artarzzi had a special place in my heart.
It was the FIRST blog i ever participated and as some of you know, i only take part on three.
When i came ; by a friendly Dutch blogger Sija, in contact with Artarazzi, i knew not yet well what to do. I saw so many brilliant entries there...was i "good" enough to take part ? And my English language...phew I was so in doubt (my nature)!!
Hesitated i placed my FIRST photoshop work and linked to my freubel site...not knowing what the impact would be !
Within no time i got so many hearty reactions and i didn't know what happened .
It was so heart-warming and so i became a 'member' of my first challenge blog.

And now...Artarazzi is closed.
Ofcourse i respect Vron's decision ! I can't imagine how much work it is to host a challenge blog ! The only thing that we crafters have to do is to link our art.
What happens "behind the screen" all that managing and visits to your partcipators !
I would realy had not the time for all those things.

And therfore...Vron, I hope you will read this...
Thank you so much for running Artarazzi and that it was YOU , who took me (without knowing) into this wonderful blogworld. For that I will always be grateful !!

AWWWW Rian you have made me cry - thank you so much for your lovely words. I was very sad to close Artarazzi, but I had no choice. I will miss my loyal friends like you, but we can meet and chat on some of the other digi sites.

Take Care

Ohhhh , Rian! I'm soooo sorry that one of your favorite challenge blogs has decided to close. Although it won't be quite the same, I know that your awesome work will find its way into another venue. Hugs, Terri
