I'm not sure whether to call today my blogversary or my birthblogday or my birthblogversaryday.
(Reality check Elizabeth . . . it doesn't really matter because you're the only one who is going to even be using those words in a sentence.)
Okay, so it doesn't matter what I call it, but I'm excited that a year ago today I wrote this and twelve crafts till Christmas began. That month I wrote 22 posts. I'm pretty sure that a friend of mine named Kristin was the only person who read my blog for that first month. (Thanks Kristin!) My parents didn't even read it. Thanks A LOT mom and dad! (Love you!) But then slowly a few of you came on board and your comments in those first few months REALLY kept me going. Then lots more of you started following along around June, and I honestly couldn't believe it when that little GFC number reached 120. Soooo exciting!
I'm not sure what 2011 is going to bring for twelve crafts, but I'm super thankful for what 2010 brought my way . . . so many of you . . . who are not just readers; you are friends!
Here's one of those readers and friends . . . Julie from Singing Three Little Birds and Belle Rose Designs. Julie is kind enough to kick off this giveaway week. For more of the sponsors for this giveaway week, check out this post or find them at the bottom of this post.
