I loved all the rush and hustle and all the pinkness of it, but honest to goodness, I'm glad we are over the tea binge of 2010. I have been to visit about 1/3 of the entrants in the tea party blogs listed on Vanessa's blog, A Fanciful Twist.
Out of the first 20 I visited, 12 hadn't done anything, 5 just referred back to the original invitation and so 3 participated. That was just a sampling but sheez. I guess once again, I am old school. If ya say your gonna do something then damn it, do it. Don't volunteer to celebrate a funky fun day if you're gonna make excuses as to how life got away from you, or you had so many commissions due, to get finished that you didn't get around to it or this is my favorite, I'm going to have to postpone my entry until next month.....huh? I don't feel bad for any who were no shows, although I am sure that some had life changes etc and my sympathies are with them. I just think folks are rude, self absorbed and forgetful. Not that I have an opinion.
I mean we didn't get graded on this, it won't be on our permanent record and our insurance won't go up because we got too many "non participating" citations, but let me just say.....good uggly moogly, mean what you say and when you give your word, try to come close to living up to it.
And to the fabulous doers and finishers....hot diggity dog, each and every one of your tea parties was so cute, fun, clever, colorful, wonderful, interesting, eye catching and just plain adorable. I still have at least 100+ parties to go to but for now....not so much.
As Big G would say, peace out ya'll.
