Where has the year Gone


First, I want to say that one year ago today, I made my first post. On March 6 2008 I entered the blog world. I had no idea what I was getting myself into at the time. It was my niece Stacy who convinced me to take the plunge and start blogging. I had been reading blogs for well over a year and never thought of having my own until she insisted that we give it a try. There have been days when I think this will be my final post. I have nothing more to say or create. I will still continue to visit my favorite blogs but as for blogging myself, I am done. Then, before you know it, I am cutting and pasting and a project is finished and another post is published.

Today my project is simple. Yesterday, I bought a recipe box at Michael's for $1.00 with the idea that I would recover the bottom with the beautiful new paper I bought at Jo Ann's on Monday.

This box is really pretty as is, but it is just not me. I see another trip to Michael's in my future to buy a few more. Just what I need more things to cover!


Can you imagine being the person who creates all these papers? I would like that job! I always think that I have all the paper I need and then, there it is another book of pretty, pretty, pretty paper. I already saw another book at Michael's that is calling my name. I may have to change my name!
Thanks for visiting!

Well Happy Blog Anniversary! I so enjoy coming to visit you often. Glad to know that you didn't give up on posting. You're such an inspiration.

Have a great Sunday!

I so know what you mean about the paper love! I have drawers of scrapbook paper. I'm not as good at using it as you are. Besides that, I have a hard time cutting into my favorite pieces. Silly isn't it?

I'm like my daughter who wouldn't use her Linda Frank stickers. She really laughed at herself as she cleaned out her room before she got married. She found a box of unused stuff.

Happy Anniversary! I'm glad you've stuck with it. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever have anything else to say myself. I love seeing your creations. You aren't allowed to stop blogging!

Congratulations on a year of blogging! You have such a nice blog, interesting and crafty, I hope you don't run out of ideas. Sometimes I go through a dry spell and can't think of a single thing to post!

This box is lovely; you have the vision to take something and transform it into something that suits you far better than the original.
