It is My Blogiversary!

Wow it has been a year already! I started this blog and really didn't know what I was going to do with it.  I just started writing and doing crafts. I figured if I just wrote about something maybe just maybe someone would be interested. My first post with lousy pictures!

The day I got a follower, I remember getting so excited. Then I started getting comments! Those are the best! My post of a painted hutch that I thought about getting rid of was the first big furniture project. Also this became my first post to receive so many comments. From then on my blog transformed into what I love to do.

If you read My Year In Review you got to see the many opportunities, projects and friendships that came along with this. I truly am thrilled every time I hear from one of you. I have virtual friends on the blog and some I even talk to on the phone! I'll never forget the first time I talked to Lesley from The Homeless Finch on the phone. It was so weird to hear her voice after emailing her for so long. She was just as I imagined! I cherish each and everyone of you!

My Etsy shop was an idea from a fellow blogger Dawn from The Feathered Nest inspired me and helped me along. I will never forget her precious words of encouragement. And Debbie from DebbieDoos who hosted a newbie party and told me to turn off my word verification and make sure I wasn't a no-reply blogger!

All these people were so helpful to me and I will pass that along to YOU!

I will announce a giveaway on Monday to celebrate ONE year!

Thank you for all you do for me by listening reading comment and just being a friend! I hope you are glad you are here with me! Let me know if there is something different you would like to see this year!

I am always open to suggestions.
Blessings!
