Year 1 Celebration

I'm going to be self-indulgent on May Day and talk about my sister, blogging and celebration. When my sister moved to San Diego, I made cards to keep in touch with her. Then I started blogging those cards for challenges. It's been fabulous making things and sharing them here this past year.

circa 1974

Here's we are all dolled up in party dresses made by our mom. Although my sis isn't interested in crafting, she understands my passion for it. And surprised me with this generous gift to enable that passion. I can't believe she remembered the blog is a year old.




So for the month of May, I'm celebrating with ten giveaway posts on the blog. To thank all of you who drop by and who say such kind things about what I make. (after all without visitors, this blog would just be a private diary) The first giveaway BCC #1 starts today.





I'm so happy to be celebrating Year One !!

Congrats on your 1 year blogaversary Sandy! Times goes by fast doesn't it? i love this picture of you and your sister. My sister and I are very close now that we are grown and I love spending time with her. We don't live too far away from each other but with work, kids, and life in general, I still don't see her much. She does not do anything crafty but her daughter often scrapbooks with me. i love to make cards for all the special events and my sister loves the handmade cards I make for her, as does everyone else. Thanks for sharing your sweet blog with us and for your generosity in celebrating your milestone :)
