Thank You So Much

This is one of those posts that you start, erase, start again, erase,....it never feels like you've nailed the message. 

When I first started this blog, I thought it would be fun to share some projects and ideas with others who are interested in the same thing.  I even had a little daydream about being an inspiration to others.

Turns out that after 18 months of hanging out here with you, the opposite is true.  The very best part of blogging (and you all know this) is the community.  It's banding together with like-minded gals (and Mike, lol) to share, to spark, to support.

I want to thank you all so much for reading, stalking, commenting and contributing to this blog.  It has been surprisingly meaningful and life-changing, and that would not have been the case without you.  That said, it makes you wonder why anyone would choose to give it up, but that's what I'm doing.

I am closing up shop here at These Peas.  I will of course still be stalking all my favourite blogs and pestering everyone on Facebook.  I will also be keeping up the creativity blog Write.Create.Connect. so feel free to pop over there to say hi.

Kadie is going to be managing the entire Link It Up Thursday party herself.  So if you want to link up this week (and you do), you can head over to Seven Alive to do that.

How about a few little quotes for the road?  :)

See you over at Write Create Connect, Terry...

Mary Sullivan Frasier said...

Hi, Terry...
I haven't really "known" you very long and my own blogging/reading has been a bit sporadic this summer due to, well... let's just say insanity and leave it at that, but I'm glad to have met you through the party, shared a few links and enjoyed some of your tips and recipes. (loved the naan pizzas from a couple of weeks ago, btw) Looking forward to checking out your other blog and hopefully getting to know you a little better. See you around the interwebs! ~Mary

Tina Bradley said...

You know you'll be seeing me at Write. Create. Connect.! Hugs, T.

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

The Blog world is sadder today. You have certainly inspired me and I will miss your blog here, but of course, you can't get rid of me that easy!! See you WriteCreateConnect!

Carol-Anne (Use the Good Dishes!) said...

Can't say I'm surprised. Sad, for sure.

I've been struggling about whether or not to make my 'summer decision' a more permanent one as well, so I totally understand.

Please stay in touch and let me know when you're in TO. I'd love to get together.

Adrianne at Happy Hour Projects said...

Terry, you have to do what's right for you, of course! We will all miss the Peas but I am glad you are pursuing what you want to do!!

This just leaves more time for noveling, right? ;)

Ellen said...

Awww, sorry to see you go...you know how much I love peas! I certainly understand that you need to do what is right for you!

Stephanie D said...

Sorry to see you go fellow Canadian. We will miss your posting. Keep Calm and Crochet/Knit On.

Hanni said...

I am so sorry that you close Peas, but I understand your decision. I will miss your blog and weekly linky party.
Hugs,
Hanni

Terri @ A Creative Princess said...

Oh Terry, I know you have your other blog and of course I will be stalking you over there, but this still makes me sad. I totally understand your decision, though. Hugs to you, my friend.

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

I remember the title of your blog catching my attention, the first time I visited you. I just knew someone creative and witty would be the author, and I was right. You've been on my mind lately, and maybe this is why. You have to follow your heart, and I hope your new direction brings you much happiness. See you around blogland, my friend. Best wishes.

Kadie said...

You know how much I will miss These Peas. However I understand and want you to be the happiest you can be!! You better keep in touch or else....,

Mindy said...

Nooooo, don't gooooooo!!!!!
Okay, I'm kidding. Kind of.
I'm gonna miss those little pea people for sure. But I shall continue to stalk your house, er, I mean your other blog. And your email. And wherever else you happen to be hiding.
Enjoy the freedom!

It's All Connected said...

I'm so sorry you are shutting this baby down! Isn't it funny that I know you better from reading These Peas than I ever did when you lived two doors away? Good luck with your writing! ~ Maureen

Amy said...

So sorry to see the Peas go, but you know you can't get rid of me that easily! ;)

Kei said...

Aww, I'll miss your posts here! But of course will still see your awesomeness at Write.Create.Connect.!

Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes said...

So sorry to hear you're leaving :( I feel like I was just getting to know you! I wish you all the best, Terry!

Donna Wilkes said...

Terry, I just found you through your showcase with Danni Baird. I will miss the peas and you, but I will check out your other blog. Good luck and bless you for the time you spent hosting here!

Evelyn Osborn said...

I will miss These Peas Taste Funny, I always laugh when I see it:) Good luck to you and you are obviously following your heart and that just can't be wrong. Good Luck and just know I will miss you.

Etcetorize said...

Well, I was all set to write you a little comment on how I understand hitting the wall and trying to push through and all that, but I just checked out your new blog and see that you've already been super busy! I guess I'll just have to stalk you over there now :) I hope Write.Create.Connect becomes everything you want it to be for you~

Melanie @ bear rabbit bear said...

Very sad!! Will miss your blog, but I plan on checking the other one out!!

MiMi said...

Sad. :(

T!na said...

OK...I am a day late ;0)
Now I would start pouting and yelling NO, but since I can visit you over at Write. Create. Connect. I won't do any of that!
So I will just say........See ya on the flipside, HA! corny I know.

Have a wonderful weekend.


I will be heading over to Kadie's sight to still link up.

Kimberly @ The Brown Eyes Have It said...

I wish you all the best. I totally understand the need to prioritize and pick the "best" thing for you over the "good" things. I'm struggling with the same decision to end my blog, too.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Oh my gosh. I am going to miss you so much. I have been doing such a crappy job of keeping up with comments and visiting blogs. I'm not sure what made me click over here but I'm so glad I did. I'm adding your other blog to my blog roll so I can still hear your voice. I can't imagine keeping up with 2 blogs so I totally understand your decision. Thanks for always making me smile. See you around friend...

Lyuba @ Will Cook For Smiles said...

I'm sorry you feel that you have to say goodbye! I will miss you too but not too much, since I will see you at Write.Create. Connect :)

Kimberly Sminkey said...

awwww, you will be missed here! Completely understood though, as I've thought of doing the same for a while!
Kim

Annie said...

I have been on blog break, and got this sad news when I got back :( I will really miss These Peas... but I will see you at your other blog!

Anita Stafford said...

Terry, I wish you the best with the new blog! You should devote your time to what you enjoy the most. I will drop in on your new place, I would not like to lose touch, I love your sense of humor!

Boocoos said...

I'm sad to see you go, but I do understand. Kadie is the best choice you could have made. She's just so kind and helpful. I hope you'll put my blog on your list of places to visit in your "retirement" (like that's even possible with kids). Lol. Anyway I'm at http://boocoos.blogspot.com and I have a post coming up that's really an ORIGINAL stitch-not pattern,but stitch. Also look at Perplexing Net post for something unusual. I'm going to miss you. Do hang out when you can and remember to crochet every day.
Boo

Donata @ DK's Craft Cafe said...

Good luck, Terry! See you over at WCC!

Crafting Rebellion said...

Sorry to hear your are closing up. I liked your sense of humor :) I can appreciate though as I often think of closing my blog too. I took the summer off which was good to do. I wish you best!

Carmella said...

How in the world did I miss this?! The good thing is, I know where to find you...hehehe! So happy we got to meet in this big ol' crazy blogging world!

Lesley at Fabulously Flawed said...

I've been skimming through some of your old posts today and missing you. I made your home made pizzas with grilled veggies a few days ago. So, y'know, even though you aren't here any more I can still stalk your old posts!

Stephanie said...

ohh Terry!! My very first blog friend!! Although I've been nonexistent the past couple (ok several!!) months, I will miss you!! Thanks so all of your encouragement and laughs!!!

Karen Mary Butterfly said...
