Blogaversary Celebration - Day One!

Oh, happy day!
It’s time for Cherish Each Precious Day’s Blogaversary celebration!
My beautiful blog badges are created from digitally modified Doodle Pantry files!
Be sure to check out their new release....this gorgeous pumpkin is in one of the new releases!

Here’s what’s being celebrated…

~I posted my first papercrafting item SIX years ago!
~It’s crazy to imagine, but the blog will also reach 1100 posts next week!
~It’s also been a great year –
~Our daughter and her husband blessed us with a first grandchild
~Our son married an amazing woman,
~I turned the big 6-0 in April, and everything still works!

I have met many wonderful people through this incredible love of all things paper. 
When we travel, I always try to meet one of my crafty long-distance friends. 
What fun it is to meet and create, or shop with someone that has previously been only an on-line face. It is incredible to me that each of you I come to know, are so genuine, generous, and full of love for fellow crafters.  I’ve seen card drives for illnesses or deaths, requests for prayers, financial requests, and I’ve been on the receiving end of many kindnesses, from prayers to birthday cards and RAK gifts coming in the mail.  And…I’m still in awe of the number of you that befriended our daughter during her husbands’ deployment. They still covet the many cards, gifts, and kindnesses that you showed, and I'll never forget you!

My friend Shirley is like a sister to me, and she's where 'it' all began for me!  Shirley was a demo for TAC, and had a local card class. I attended, and was hooked.  TAC closed its’ doors, but Shirley is now a demo for A Muse Studio, and the rest is history! 
Thank you Shirley, for all I learned from you, but most important, for your friendship.


Some of you have been here since the very beginning.  Others have only been here a day or two.  I’m so humbled and amazed that I am so lucky. You are all wonderful, so this celebration is for you!

There will be SIX days in October, where we will celebrate with a giveaway.

What fun!  I love giveaways, especially when I’m the giver!!!

Patti, a BIG Happy Blogaversary to you. This is such a momentous milestone. You do such amazing work, and I'm so happy I found your blog, and am getting to know who you 'are'. Bloggers & crafters are such generous & warm (not to mention talented) people. It reaffirms my belief that this world is a good place, despite all the tragedy we see in the news. Continue on for many more happy crafting years, and thanks for the opportunity to win some good 'schtuff'. Love your celebratory blog badge too! Hugs.

Congratulations Patti! The most amazing thing about our crafting addition :-) is the love that we give and receive. It really is one of those "A stranger is just a friend you don't yet know" things. So happy I came upon your blog a while back as I love the cards, the stories and the sharing. Cheers to at least another 6 years, Patti!
Oops, got so excited about your blogiversary, that I almost forgot to tell you that I love the haunted house and the haunted scene you created. Spook-tacular! :-)
