i just want to take a moment here and thank martin and the craftisian family of woodworkers, and leather,metal and needlepoint that have welcomed me and the lj's people that have come here looking for something more than,"yall need to take a breath" !!!!! for myself im here because well, i was banned for speaking out that, im not takin what their given. apparently thats an inappropriate comment !!!! but let me say im totally impressed and am lovin every minute ive spent here getting to know this beautiful forum. msdebbiep has been so welcoming,i love you already girl. and martin thank you for being so helpful and welcoming. but im concerned that maybe the regulars are feeling overwhelmed by the lj's invasion ? i hope not,and i hope you guys and gals come out and join us.seems like you all have gone into hiding ? were not here to take over, were here to join with you guys to make craftisian bigger and better than lj's ever was !!!!!! peace.

It is good to see you  and all the other new LJ escapees but there are some of us who have been here right from the start. 
I’ve been on both sites for years but with the changes, LJ’s just didn’t have the right feel anymore so from now on I’m back to being a one forum wonder.

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

SW i hear ya and ive seen a bunch that have been here for many years.i just wish i would have discovered this place years ago. well i gotta say one thing,thank you cricket for pushing me to find it. lmao !!!!!
Nicely said Pottz. I'm still working my way through the site here.

Still viewing LJ for now, but I started the next swap so it looks like I will be sticking around for a while over there. 

Main Street to the Mountains

eric ill be back because ive just got so many great friends there that i love talking with.so we just gotta work hard and get em all here-lol.
Yeah, what Pottz said. Some of us folks from LJs might be an acquired taste. We’ll try to be on ‘better’ behavior until you get used to us at lest!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

ok what he said but not the "acquired" taste. everyone loves the pottz.......welll most anyway-lol.
Starting to have the same feel like it used to be on LJs  
Yeah, but it’s not LJs. Let’s let this be Craftisian and let it be better than things were before. LJs was great, but this can/should/will be better if we bring great content, education and fun. All the ingredients are here, now it’s up to the community.

You could always shut it down before it starts, Eric.
It's not the name of the site that makes the site what it is. It's the members that are on it.

I won't be going back.  
Too much Noise.  
I'm not going to jump through hoops just to make it to my liking.

Give it more time here,  Martin is making changes that will only make it better.

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Glad you are liking it here. 

Isn’t it wonderful to have the man behind the scenes (Martin) also front and centre, working at providing the tools to build community!

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
