Happy Blogaversary to me!!!


Can you believe that my blog is 8 years old today?

This post is #1,445 - 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, Shirley, was my first paper crafting teacher.

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

* * * * *

To say thank you, I'm going to be giving away some 'Itty Bitty' blog candy.

All you need to do, is leave me a comment (please include your email so I can find you)
on this blog post.  

You do NOT have to be a follower of my blog to win.

If you ARE a follower, be sure to leave a second comment, telling me you're a follower.
You will have two chances to win!

When commenting with your email, type it in this fashion: mamagilliam at gmail dot com
This will help with spamming!

I'll keep this open all week, and will announce winner(s) next Monday!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.
