Can you believe that my blog will soon be 8 years old?

On October 2nd, I will have been blogging for 8 years.

I will have posted at least 1,445 posts - yikes!

Some of you have been with me from the get-go, offering encouragement when needed, 
offering kind words about creations that were not deserving (hee hee),
but mostly, offering friendships.

I feel so blessed...

Paper Crafting and blogging have brought so many of you into my life that I'd never
have had a chance to know otherwise.

I have friends in nearly every country, and nearly every state in the US.

When we travel, my hubby tries very hard to be sure that I get to meet a fellow paper crafter.

My very dearest friend was my paper crafting teacher in the beginning.

I remember eight years ago, getting my very first blog follower, and it is so humbling
to know that there are so many of you that want to take time from your busy days
to drop by and see what I've been up to.

Thank you to each of you!

Be watching for a bit of Blog Candy on October 2nd!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.
