201

Since I forgot about my 200th post yesterday, we'll celebrate today.

When I posted my first tentative contribution I had no idea how many wonderful friends I would make over here in blogland. I love having people to share my creations with who actually understand and appreciate the love and care that goes into what we do. My family oohs and aahs, and I totally love them for it, but only those who actually craft really "get" it.

My life is fuller because of you, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this little blog and leaving lovely comments which inspire me to greater heights.

OK, enough soppy-ness already. To celebrate this occasion I will be doing a little giveaway (or two).

To the "crazy mom" who left the very first (and second and third) comment on my fledgling blog I will send a special something.

Two other blogfriends who leave comments on this post will receive either...
a little flower pincushion...

...or a very tiny strawberry...

Thank you again for being here.

Pin It!

Congrats on the 201nth post -I'm new to the blogging word (post 12 I think) so I can understand that you have quite the accomplishment under your belt. Oh - the strawberry reminds me of the first thing they had us make back in home etc in middle school - minus the fantstic beading.

Laura said...

Love, Love, Love the pin cushions!!! I was just thinking I need a new one since I just found my sewing stuff (I moved recently) and realized I only have the old "tomato pincushion" that everyone has!
