IT'S MY BLOGAVERSARY



Hi people.  I can't believe it has been one year since I started blogging.  I was very resistant to start one as I did not feel I had anything important to say or share.  Thanks to a good friend who thought otherwise, I am now happy I have a place to share my passion.  I surely am not the best card maker or scrapper out there, but it is mine and I am proud of what I do.  Hey, I want to give a shout out to my friend and artist Robert Jackson http://www.fineartsbyrobertjackson.com/.  He created my personal image which I love.  Check him out if you would like one for yourself.  Now for the good part, in honor of my blogaversary I will be giving blogcandy to one lucky follower   You will receive a $10 gift certificate from Robert Jackson, perhaps you can use it to have your image drawn. In addition you will receive a $10 Michaels gift card.  All you have to do to be eligible is to first be a follower and second leave a comment wishing me a Happy Blogaversary and tell me why crafting brings you JOY.  Thank you all for following me this last year and I hope you continue to stop by.  I will run this contest for one week ending on 4/5.  Please leave a way for me to contact you if I don't know you well in case you are the winner.   Peace out.

  4. Happy Blogaversary! I love crafting because it provides me with a way to celebrate special people and special occasions in my life and the lives of my friends and family. It also helps me relax and enjoy the tranquility of being by myself. Crafting also is a means of fellowship when I join in with a others.

  10. As for me, I have always loved being creative--I just love the whole process, ending with something unique I can share with friends and family. However, I love it even more now because it reduces my stress levels, allow me to be around and get to know other creative people, and just make me cherish everyday more.

    Happy Blogoversary, MJ!! Its gone by so fast, yet it feels like you've been doing it longer because you're a natural at it! I wish you all the best as you move into your next year of blogging!

  11. Hi MJ, Happy Blogoversary...yahoo from Texas. I found crafting after being diagnosed with a lung disease that prevented me from doing those things I loved doing with my grand-daughters. This was a Godsend for me. Never viewed myself as being crafty but I found it and have not looked back. My girls loved it in the beginning but now they stay involved just to please their Mema. Its okay though, cardmaking allows me to find beauty in a world filled with pain and suffering. It allows me to remember the beauty of God's creation and not dwell on my sickness in pity. Another cool thing is my world has opened considerably and my friendship list is never-ending.

    Hugs
