Time to Party!


Will you help me blow out the candles?

It’s my blogiversary!!!


One year – I can’t believe it! I wish I could reach right out there into cyberspace and give each one of you a piece of cake!

(Well, first I wish I had a cake! lol )

Seriously though, one year ago today I never dreamed that this blog would unfold the way it has. I started it as a way to spread the word about my bead shop. Initially, I thought I’d concentrate on writing posts about making jewelry.


I quickly discovered that many of my readers were interested in a wide range of topics and so I’ve tried to cover a variety of subjects. Sometimes I worry that I’m not pleasing everyone, but I’m trying my best!

One thing I never expected is that I would meet so many wonderful people, who would generously offer such incredible support, warm friendship, and delightfully sweet and entertaining feedback! Thank you all so much!!!


If you are a “regular” commenter here, you can be sure that I recognize your name and that I remember all the comments you leave, and I even feel as if I know you a little! If you are new to this blog, please visit often – I’ll recognize you soon! 🙂


So Happy Blogiversary to me and my heartfelt thanks to you!!!!

I could never have done it without you! 🙂

  2. Happy one year!! Lots of bloggers post when its a blogiversary, but I never looked back at mine to see when I started until you posted yours. Well, I missed mine. It was 4/27. Thats OK, I miss birthdays too. Congrats on your milestone. BTW, did I say I’m glad I met you. Later I’ll go back and see when I first posted to yours. That will be our blabiversary!

  4. Congrats, Crystal, on your blog’s first year. Don’t worry too much about trying to please “everyone”. Just continue writing with your humorous flair. You have a good mix of topics. Like that spaghetti sauce commercial… It’s all in there!! And who doesn’t like to look at beautiful beads!!
