It is hard to believe that it has been one year since I started this site. I have to thank my friend, Yvette, for getting me hooked on Cricut. She pushed me to get my first Expression and now she probably thinks "Oh my!" Last summer, we sat and talked on the phone to figure out how to start our blogs, which backgrounds would look the best, who we should follow, and then we would call, e-mail or text each other the newest challenges we should enter.
Thank You Yvette!
Because of you I also have made many other crafty friends, hosted a few Blog Hops, applied for a couple Design Teams, and I have entered numerous challenges. I truly love the world of crafting and all it has to offer. I have learned so much and there are plenty more techniques and folds I still need to try. My list has grown and I am hoping to cross off a few this summer.
Since I want to share this special occasion with everyone...
I would like to offer some "Blogoversary Candy". Here is the first batch. It includes: stamps, ribbons, gems, rub-ons, gold letter stickers, and die-cuts.
When I reach 600 fellow crafters I plan to add another batch. I am currently only 11 away, so I am hoping I will be shopping some more tomorrow. If I reach 675 fellow crafters before the deadline I will add another batch (sounds like cookies, huh?). How exciting!

- If you have been following for some time, do you have a favorite posting, project, or hop that made an impression?
Bonus: If you post about my special occasion on your site, leave a comment that you did for another chance to win.

Thank you again for making this a memorable year. I hope there are many more to come!
