Heya Everyone, I mentioned last week that this week was my blog’s birthday… She was five years old this past Monday. I’ve been very busy trying to get Sue/Sam ready for release and really didn’t want to post until it was, but I’m realizing that I’m letting time slip by as I try to finish those patterns up. So I am writing today to offer a little free pattern I created for celebrating 5 years of being a blogger.
With another 5 years, I should be able to make it to 1000 posts…
We all look forward to our birthdays until we get a certain age, and then boom, we just wish it would not happen, or perhaps it’s that reminder that we are just getting b+older 🙂 …
My dad when he turned 40, started counting backwards at each of his birthdays.. He wasn’t what I’d call a vain man either, but for some reason if you asked him his age, he’d always tell you what his age was by subtracting his age from the number 40.. He didn’t make it to be 80 years old so that he could say he was 0, but it just reminds me how young we all really are and at 56 this year, I really don’t feel like I am 56.
Today, I’ll just reflect and remember that my life has been good, I’m lucky to be married to a wonderful man who has put up with me for 32 years now and that’s even longer than my own parents were married for. I have my family and Franks family, and I’ve made some amazing friends here just by blogging. What else could I ask for? Not much… but today I have a few things for you…
Last year at this time, I had a giveaway offered by DJ Inkers for ya’ll, they gave away an amazing cd of their artwork and this year they are doing it again with their Holidays Around The World CD.. It’s an oldie, but a goodie..
Days like today allow you to reflect and wonder, I’ve been thinking about this day for months. Even thinking what design look I’d change my blog to today. It’s my domain’s birthday, and I have no idea what to change my design to. The simple fact is, I think I like this one way to much, it’s me to a T.. I like the sunbonnet header/logo, I like the Crazy Patch background, and I like the design of the site. So for now, I’m not going to change a thing. Perhaps someday, but for now, nope.. It isn’t like I tried, I really looked, tried various displays, and I even made some backgrounds.. would you like to have them?
