Appreciation

The internet is a strange and wonderful thing.  It brings people together who might not have otherwise met, creating friendships.  It provides a seemingly boundless font of information.  However, it has also eroded many of the social niceties.  Consumers will air their customer service issues on public forums, and posting "flaming" threads that have no purpose other than to upset others.

To the lovely ladies at PTI, Jane, Julie, and Nichole:  I was lured to PTI by Debbie Olson's blog, and the beautiful cards she makes.  I purchased a few things, and lurked on the forums to get a feel for what PTI was about.  I was impressed by the courtesy of the community members, and more so by the quality and customer service of the company.  Thanks for all you do - beyond creating your wonderful products - to make the community a good place to hang with friends.   And don't let the turkeys get you down.

  11. How sweet that bicycle is! And I almost talked about that as well, the anonymity of the internet and impersonal nature of not facing someone in reality causes social conventions and manners to break down, such a shame! BUt it can bring out good things in people too, like this hop. Love that semi circle of flowers around the center image!
