Hello all my crafty friends! Today kicks off a huge BLOGAVERSARY event here on my blog--March 26th is my official one year!!
Wow--what a year can bring! When I started this blog I really did not have any expectations other than to share some of my creations with whoever I was lucky enough to have stop by. I figured if I got 5,000 blog hits in a year that that would be wonderful & here I am getting ready to hit 137,000 blog hits--whoaaaa nellie, lol! I never, never thought I'd meet so many kind, supportive and wonderful friends from around this world who all take a moment most days to stop by my blog to see what I've done :o)
Nor did I think I'd take my crafting to the next level by getting published, working on DT's and teaching! Being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years I had kinda let my crafty side and art dreams go by the wayside, never really pursuing anything that I really wanted to do. But isn't that the case for most of us moms? Taking care of kids, hubby's, homes & animals--but not taking care of ourselves. So starting my blog last March was unknown territory for me for sure, but I'm so, so happy that I did it! I have finally taken on my own dreams and found that you can really have it all :o)
I love and appreciate each and everyone of you--I call you all my friends & my biggest supporters! So I thank you for being a friend to me!!
Today is BLOG CANDY #1, Friday will be #2 and Sunday will be #3---you will not want to miss any of them cuz' they each have lots (LOTS) of my favorite things in them including stamps, embellies, dp, markers & other goodies!!
