5 Years of Blogging


WOW, where has the time gone! It's been 5 years since I started this world of blogging! It's just amazing what I have learned from you, my blogging friends. I've been able to meet a few of you and hope to meet a few more!

I've learned many decorating ideas, paper crafting ideas, swapped many treasures, had a few giveaways and won a few "giveaways".

I've prayed for some of you. I've cried with some of you. You have prayed for me and you may have cried too! We have shared so many things, just like girlfriends do!

You have encouraged me and I hope that I have encouraged you.

I will be giving one of you the little gifts above to celebrate FIVE YEARS of blogging! Just leave a comment that you WANT it and your name will go into the "hat" and a name will be picked later this week!

THANK YOU! You have no idea how special YOU are!

Warmly,
deb

Ooooo - buttons! Count me in ;) I'm new to blogging myself. I've been shopping the thrift stores and garage sales for years but now I'm trying to organize myself to start reselling some of it.

Deb congratulations on 5 years of blogging. I am so glad you blog or I would never have 'met' you! Over the years I have felt a great friendship with you! I'm not putting my name in the draw since I've been so blessed by winning many sweet things from you already! Big Hugs to you.

ImagiMeri said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You are truly a delight and I'm so glad I've met you through blogging. I'm extremely jealous that Sandy is coming back to visit you and Tammy. Sadly my funds will now be taken up with buying for the November party, doctors and fixing things around the house. Which reminds me.....I haven't forgotten you and a check, I just don't have checks anymore, so I have to stop by the bank to pick one up and with the air out on my car, it's something I don't want to attempt......;o) I'll let you know when one is on the way. I really appreciate you doing this for me.

Hugs,
Meri
