Happy 3rd Bloggiversary!

Happy Bloggiversary!

Wow, I've had this blog for three years now. Posting was a bit dodgy at the beginning but once I hit my stride, I just haven't been able to shut up.

Out of curiosity I went back to see what my first blog post was about. I was drinking some water and when I realized what it was, I spent the next ten minutes cleaning the spit off my laptop. (Drinking and spontaneous laughter don't go well together.) Apparently some things never change.

I've been a bad blog mom in the sense that this is the first anniversary I've acknowledged. So to show my appreciation to all of you who have stuck through my ramblings and babblings over the past three years, I'm doing a giveaway.

Up for grabs is the premiere issue of the special publication from Stampington called Somerset Workshop.

Follow the link to read about all the good stuff inside there.

All you gotta do is leave a comment on this post (no anonymous comments, I need to be able to find you) and you're in the running. A winner will be picked at random and announced next wednesday so you have a week to get in on it.

I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for checking in here and joining me. I've met many new people because of this blog and my life would be poorer without it. Its been fun and I look forward to many more years of it.

THANKS!!!

Happy Blogversary from someone who just began a blog..or two. ;)

I was interested to see the Stampington publication you put up as the premiere issue...I was sort of dumbfounded and now have to go back and take another look at it.

As you're aware, we've been talking about the "new Stampington publication" on quiltarts, but this isn't the magazine I was looking at or talking about. I have the premiere edition of "Art Quilting Studio" so now I have to take a look at yours!

Thanks.

Happy anniversary. I enjoyed reading your section on cutting up pieces that don't work. That does take courage and I applaud you for it.

Hi Lynn,

Happy Bloggiversary. You've managed to keep your blog interesting for 3 years. I've just started one and hope in 3 years I can say that at least I've stuck with it. See you at Fabrications!

What a fun idea Lynn, it never occurred to me to have a blog anniversary... maybe I see one coming.

TJM wanna be quilt artist said...

I thank you!!! through you I've found the MI group.then found other charming blogs to follow...... I'm looking forward to when I can become a full time member of the scissors group ;-)

Michele Lasker said...

I love your photograhic essay "Where I Stand." You know I have stood on The Great Wall, The Acropolis, The Eiffel Tower, London Bridge, in line for Ho Chi Minh's Tomb, in line for Mao's Tomb, and now with my husband helping his face a terminal illness. Your photographic essay tells a story, but only part of the story; it is the unknown part that can only place us in certain times and places. Thanks for sharing your inspiration. Michele Lasker

I've been following your blog for a long time and enjoy it tremendously!! Now that I am in Florida, it's nice to hear what is going on. And I love all your photos of your dog as I have met him and he is adorable! Keep up the great blog as there are so many of us that are with you!

Tawney said...

So glad to have taken the time to come see your blog (have very slow dial-up - happily your blog loads all the pictures!) - it's bookmarked!

The Somerset book looks great and I'd love to win it, but your blog is the real treasure - as someone once said, "I'll be bahck!"

Kim Hambric said...

Congratulations on your anniversary. Im sure to be the lucky winner. Ha Ha Ha. I did win a plastic kazoo in a bingo game when I was 15. Other than that, I'm pretty much a loser.

Cathy W said...

Happy 3rd year of blogging!
I know I've enjoyed your photos, comments on life & much more. Now I must go check out your shopping link (yes, I qualify as boring, too)
