I just got home from the hospital (yes... AGAIN!) and looked at our beloved Boston "Buddies" community to find out how the calendar project is coming along. I've read most of the comments and I must say that I'm a little disappointed. I love this community and I'm VERY proud of the way we are so close. I really want to keep it that way. Please don't get me wrong, I love all the calendar posts and all the sweet comments people are making about our babies... I'm just sad that things had to take a bit of a nasty turn.
I'm so proud of cajunsunshyne for coming up with the idea to make our calendars. She really has put a lot of time into this community. You guys don't realize it, but she's the lady behind the scenes! She does all the real work in the community. These days I pretty much sit back and watch the community grow. Occasionally I need to peek my head in and remind someone to resize their photos or use the LJ cut... But that's really the easy part. Dawn does all the brainy hard work. She is part of this community because she loves Boston's just the way we do. Dawn is so sweet to do all the work on the calendars for free. She only does it because Boston's and this community are both close to her heart. She loves to see people light up when they see work that she has done special for them. She doesn't do it to make money. She does it for fun and she likes to make her friends happy.
I know some of you were trying to figure out a way to make things cost less... but for what we are doing this year, and the amount of time and money we have to spend (very little time and no money)... this is the way that we want to do the calendar. I don't' mean to sound snotty but if you don't like the way things are being handled please don't participate in the calendar. Maybe NEXT year, you can do one of your own... but for this year... this is the way it's gonna be.
I know this might sound like a silly thing to ask, but I would love it if we could all kiss and make up. I really don't want to have to ban anyone from the community. If I did that, then I would have to figure out how to first... and that would take more time away from my already busy and very stressful life.
I don't want to hear anymore complaining about the calendar. If I do I will delete your posts or comments.
The "MOD" has spoken!
Now KISS damnit!
I luv you all...
