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! 🙂


Friday Favorites

This week’s Friday Favorites is dedicated to all of you!


Happy Valentine’s Day to the brightest, funniest, sweetest bunch of readers that any blogger could ask for!


In the few short months I’ve been doing this blog, you all have added so much! You’ve inspired me, made me laugh (even had me close to spitting tea on the monitor now and then!), but most of all you’ve touched my heart with your warm responses.

If I could make one of these little conversation hearts for ya, it would say – U R Gr8

Have a lovely day on Saturday. Do something nice for yourself, ok?

See you Monday for the new questions! 🙂
