Let's Celebrate, Shall We?

Who knew that having a blog would be so HARD!  So many talented gals out there make it look so easy, and so I thought, sure, I can do that too!  Wow, the learning curve is steep to say the least. 

I knew for me a blog would be about crafting, and making things that bring joy to me and those around me.  I love to make things for people, I can customize it for them, and they know it comes from my heart.  I still have A LOT to learn about blogging, and crafting but today we CELEBRATE!

Today, we celebrate that the blog grows a little each and every single day!  It brings me such JOY every day to see a new GFC follower or a new Facebook fan!  Every one of your sweet comments brings me joy, I love connecting.  I love to know I am not talking to myself! I love checking out your blogs too.  I know many of you are also bloggers, and when I get quiet moments, I love to go see what you're doing and what's important to you.  Because I know important comments are to me, I am learning to be better about not just lurking and giving you all comment love too! 

I have so many big plans for this little blog.  I can't wait to share everything with you.  Of course it will all be in due time.  Finding a good work-life-blog balance has been one of the hardest parts.  I suspect it will remain to be.

Mostly, thank you!  Thank you for joining me.  Thank you for bringing some Joy in my life in a way I never expected. 

Today's project is from SVGCuts Happy Birthday to You kit.  I used a retired Close to my Heart paper pack "Lucy".  The cupcake cut is just such and adorable and fun kit!  I love that it can hold a fun treat and will be around long after the celebration is over!  That means you can eat your cake and keep one too! How great is that???
