I am celebrating TEN YEARS of blogging!
Yep, go ahead and peek at my archives I dare you. I started blogging in March 2005! I thought it would be really fun to have a celebration and invite all of you!! I have a lot of fun surprises up my sleeve for this month and I hope you will hang out with me and celebrate!
My blog has definitely evolved over the years. I mainly started it because all the cool kids were doing it, and I love technology. It then evolved into a way for me to share upcoming classes I was teaching at the local store I managed or my travel schedule for classes. Since the store has closed I have used it as a way to continue to stay in touch and inspire those I was so used to seeing weekly in classes, events and while they shopped. I have since found that I have lots of new crafty friends from all over the world who enjoy reading my blog. I love this and hope I’m inspiring and teaching you as well!
Starting July 7th, each Tuesday this month I will share with you some special party guests. I have asked them to “CASE” a project from my blog. What does that mean? They get to copy or use some thing I have posted on here for inspiration. They each have browsed my archives and found a card or project on my blog that has inspired them to create and they will be sharing with you that creation! Fun, right?
I will also be finding some of MY favorite posts over the years and re-making the project with a bit of a makeover 😉
So plan to be here each and every Tuesday in July!

- Visit Week 1’s festivities and visit my party guests
