And So It Continues....

If you would have ever asked me if I was going to start a blog, my answer would have been that I was planning on it ... Well, I planned on it for YEARS.. I looked through blog magazines, craft magazines, online, and from links on Facebook. The impetus for me actually starting one finally was the opportunity to try out for the Mountain Plains Crafters Design Team. Started by 3 women -- Pam, Terri & Sheryl -- it was going to be a place to share ideas, be creative, try new products and have fun... My blog grew from there-- a place for me to show my projects, try new techniques and make many new friends..

It has been exactly 1 year since my first post, aptly titled "And So It Begins"... I want to celebrate my first year by giving away some of my favorite products,. Unity Stamp Company, We R memory keepers & anything Tim Holtz are just a few of my GO-TO companies for supplies.. Adornit has given me hours of fun with their  Art Play Paintables by Lindsay Ostrom. You can see from my blog posts how many amazing sponsors I have been privileged to work with.To win, all you have to do is comment on this blog post.. I will randomly choose 3 winners.

My friends from Mountain Plains Crafters will be helping me celebrate, several by posting something here.. They are all amazing... They have gotten me out of my comfort zone, made me a better person and challenged me.. I am blessed to be in such fantastic company...

I've also invited some friends that I have met along the way to post on my Facebook timeline for my blogoversary. Not everyone has a blog, BUT I have met some terrific crafters on Facebook and wanted to give them the opportunity to show their creations... I will share any blog links that I get from friend's posts..

My card celebrates my 1st year of blogging... The sentiments are from Unity Stamp Company and were perfect. I was INSPIRED by so many people and their wonderful creativity, IMAGINED that one day I would have a blog with which to share my own creativity and CREATED Meticulosity which has led me on an amazing journey. I want to keep building on those 3 words during my second year ( and weren't those cute buildings just what I needed to express that !! ).. During my second year, I want to use more mixed-media techniques, try out a new look for my blog background, work on my journal and STAY out of my comfort zone.  I hope you will continue on this journey with me..  I couldn't have made it through this first year without all of your support..



Supplies: Unity Stamp sentimentsTim Holtz On the Edge border die & Journaling ticket, We R memory keepers wood stickers, Michaels Recollections paper, Hampton Art  #1 stamp

  8. Happy anniversary. Congratulations on one year down and many more to go.
    Like you I've thought of starting a blog but I have so much fun visiting other people's blogs that I don't think I'd have the time. I already spend too much time on the computer. Glad that you took the plunge and have brought us so many great projects. Thanks.
