No, wait - that's another story!
THREE YEARS ago, I began my blogging adventures. It started out with DS, DD, and BF Tami reading. For many entries, I got anywhere from 0-2 comments each day. I actually started this blog to let the kids and our friends know how our bathroom remodeling was going. My friend Tami, and DD, both said, "you should start putting your paper crafts on your blog".
Once I began posting cards, my very first 'real' reader was someone in the blogging world that is very 'famous' now - Theresa Momber, who designs for Gina K. Designs. Theresa is very busy these days, but I still feel that I can go to her anytime with questions, and she's always there. She encouraged me to enter my very first challenge, and I can still remember my hand shaking when I submitted to the first one! Feels rather silly now, but it was pretty frightening to jump in with both feet!
The rest is history....blogging is something that I do for fun. I have been blessed with so many on-line friends! It's crazy, the deep friendships that I have built with some of you! I feel like I could land almost anyplace and find someone to crash with for a night, or craft with for a day. Some of you I actually have met in real life, and it's been delightful!
Shirley, one of the best friends that I've ever known, and I, have so much fun at this little hobby of ours! She was devastated when TAC hung up their wings, and is now giving A-Muse a try, so I'm looking forward to some 'amusing' stamping adventures in the near future! (Beginning today, actually, as she is on her way over with some new stamps!)
Anyway, I guess I'm trying to just say thank you to all of you who have been such great readers and friends. I've enjoyed getting to know you, reading about your families, laughing with you, crying with you, and drooling over your beautiful creations!!!
Thanks for a great 3 years!
The winner of today's blog candy was chosen by "Random Wayne dot Org"! I'm home alone, so I called Shirley's DH and asked for one number between 1 and 41. His choice was 27. Comment #27 was left by Jerusha!
Congratulations Jerusha! Drop me an email, and let me know where you would like to spend $26 shopping on-line!
Hugs to all,
