Blogoversary -BLOG CANDY!!!!!

Good Evening! Well I can hardly believe it but I will be celebrating my 1 year anniversary on my blog!! Yea me! Now technically I started a blog wayyyyyyyy before that, but I didn't really "Blog" KWIM.  I had a couple of sporadic post but thats about it. Anyways,  1 year and 200+ followers later here I am still steady blogging. I love it. My friend Lisette and I started about the same time. She was my inspiration to start and she has also been my enabler the entire way. Meaning, without her, I probably would have that new car I want/need and I probably could have squeezed a few extra vacations in this year!!! But I was blessed with daily emails to check this blog or that online store out to see all this crazy cute stuff that I just couldn't pass up. I have continued to blog because I need an excuse on why I bought over 100 magnolias in less than a year...and 250 see where this is going??? lol Thank you Lisette! LOL I love all my card making supplies!!!
I truly have enjoyed blogging and I love all the friends (close and faraway) that I have come across via blogland. That is why it has been so much fun!!  I also love and appreciate all the comments that come my way. Crafters are a great bunch of ladies and because of that I want to spread some love via BLOG CANDY!

Of course there has to be rules. ;-( 
        1. You must be a follower (remember - follower = friends and I'm sharing some love with my old/new   friends here!!) - you can become a follower if you are not already a follower.
        2. Please display this candy on your sidebar or into a blog post on you blog. :-)  You know - spread the love!
        3. Sign up with Mr. Linky below!!

And if you want....leave me a comment. Tell me why you like to blog or how you started?  (this part is not mandatory to win the candy)

Blog Candy Ends - APRIL 30th.   Good luck!!!



Congrats. on your Blogoversary Tracy - I have become a follower and will pop the details onto my side-bar ~ what amazing candy for one lucky person!
Blogging is a wonderful way to connect with like-minded craft-lovers, and discover inspiration, amazing talent, and friendship.

I love to blog when I can't sleep but now I got so much busy in my head, I don't know where to start or stop.

Happy blogaversary!
Thanks for a chance at your candy, I was already a follower and your candy is now linked in my sidebar.
The reason I started blogging my cards was to keep pictures of the cards I sent, for myself and my friends. Then I discovered challenges and the great blogging community and was hooked!

Unknown said...

So nice that you are celebrating you anniv. this way. Love those stamps using the "little girl". Thanks for allowing me to sign up and possibly win this candy and WOW, what candy.


tammejean said...

I started blogging on to help me get more ideas and all these cards are so beautiful. I have gotten more and more Maggies also. I fell in love with them the first time I saw them in my card magazine and couldn't wait to get some.

Sharon in Arizona said...

Congratulations Tracy!!!! Here's to another great year for you. This Crafting bug is something, isn't it? But we have soooo much fun and are never bored. I don't have a blog so I posted your candy on my facebook page. I have a lot of crafty friends who check there daily. And I am now a follower. Thanks for the opportunity at the yummy, yummy candy. You have a wonderful week!! Hugs, Sharon :o)

Ooooh Tracy, thank you for this sweet candy! I just celebrated my one year anniversay at the end of Feb. I never thought I would be a blogger. I first started because I wanted to win some TGF stamps (they were my first addiction). That led me to find Maggies and it's been a downward financial spiral ever since, LOL!

Trish and Treasure said...

Hi Tracy, The main reason I started on New Years day this year to blog was to become better at the fast racing world of technology and the obvious benefits of using it daily, it becomes second nature and with baby steps I've improved out of sight with help from my best friend, now I can teach her stuff. She sets me homework and now I've taken my love of stamping and card making and now even entered challenges & also I'm keen on your candy!

Snoopy said...

Wooohoo! Congrats Tracy! You know I adore you even though I am terrible at commenting frequently! I can't believe you are only one! AND that you bought over 100 maggie stamps and 250 copics in a year!! You know that's about $2500!! hehee I just had to do the sums. lol And that doesn't include all the papers, flowers, accessories and .... But the truth is - how many fabulous hours of enjoyment have you got out of crafting, all the incredible friends you have made - ahem, me - and the fabulous creations you can now give away to loved ones. :) Huge congrats and I'm sure there will be many more to come. Big Squeezes xxoo

Sassy Scrapper said...

Hi Tracy! A Big Huge Congratulations to you my dear! I remember when I hit my first year anniversary It's so very exciting and feels so rewarding. I know what you mean my becoming enabled due to blogging. My gosh I could open my own store. I've already outgrown my craft room. I feel extremely blessed because of my blog like you I've met so many friends who have become even closer than sisters to me. I was even fortunate to have met one in person. Too bad we all couldn't live closer to each other. Thank goodness for the internet! Well geez I've rambled on long enough and it looks as though you've got a lot of fans and I'm your newest one. Good luck in many more years of blogging it's the best therapy. Hugs Bonnie

Naomi said...

Hi Tracy,
Congrats on your first Blogoversary! I completely agree with you about scrapbooking vs. cardmaking...I have been scrapbooking for years..mostly to make my mom happy since she's really into it but, didn't really get into cardmaking until just after this past Christmas..I had made a few cards and taken a couple of cardmaking classes a few years ago and have always found it more fun than scrapbooking but, I am still only in my mid-twenties and I just never got hooked on it until recently. Since Christmas, I have accumulate SO MUCH stuff! It really has become an addiction...I needed so many other things that I refused to get into copics until now..I just got my first 66 markers (found them on sale @ for $3.90 each)..I have most of the major tools now and was feeling very limited by not being able to colour images. Now I just need to build on my copic collection, get some nesties, and one can never have too many stamps and embellishments! I have bought a lot of things through craigslist and a lady I bought an item off of in January asked me if I did challenges and to be honest, I didn't even know what they were! I had no idea that this cardmaking subculture even existed! After that, I started looking at other peoples blogs and challenge blogs and decided to start blogging so I could enter challenges. I found it hard at first to put myself, "out there", but, now I'm so glad I did! It's so nice to meet others with the same interests and to find inspiration and learn about new techniques and products through other peoples work! Btw, your cards are just TOO CUTE! I look forward to your future posts. Sorry for the LONG comment, lol.
