I never thought that I would get this far, that I would keep going, make so many friends - in person and online - have so much fun, improve my computer skills, and my photography skills, learn to crochet - I couldn't crochet a stitch when I started blogging - or do half of the things that I can now do and that I do now do!
Twitter and Facebook have made their presence felt in my life. Although Facebook and I are not getting on well, I am loving Twitter. Instagram hasn't yet, but I expect that it will if and when I get the right sort of phone - as I have often said! Pinterest, oh be still my beating heart! I love Pinterest and can
The last two years of blogging have been amazing. That is all thanks to YOU!!!!
THANK YOU BLOGGERS!!!
YOU ARE WONDERFUL!!!!!
Yes, all of YOU!!!!! Without ya'll it would not have been nearly as much fun. I would stopped a long time ago and learned a lot less and not made lots of new friends.
So to celebrate I have given my blog a bit of a birthday! You might have noticed the changes happening as I have gone on. A new colour scheme, bigger writing - our eyes are all getting older! - and some new things here and there.
Today was the day I planned as the final reveal. New header, which I have achieved - same words, different colour and it took minutes instead of days the first time I tried it some time ago! Buttons so you can click and link to see where else you can find me, somewhat achieved, they are the circles, top right of the sidebar. Click and you will go to all of my other places to follow me. To get my Ravelry account sorted and have a link to that. Didn't get that sorted. I have made some new pages, About Me, FAQ's and Sponsors - just in case anyone is interested! The Five On Friday page has been updated too. I have also yet to add pages for my Reading My Books challenge, Recipes, Patterns and a Tutorials page or update my sidebar with a few new projects for you to look at. Life has taken precedence so there is still some way to go. Perhaps I will be ready for my third blogaversary!!
I hope that you like the new look. In a lot of ways it is just a new colour scheme and some fiddling around, but I hope that it will make it easier for you to find things - and for me to find them too! It is all quite simple and plain, but I am not one for jazzy patterns or pictures and I don't have the budget to buy artwork or the ability - as yet! - to create it myself, perhaps one day.
So, to celebrate all of this wonderfulness and loveliness I thought that it was time for a giveaway. I regret to tell you that I have not had time to do anything for this, and as the (for me) lateness of the time of posting this post shows I haven't had time for blogging either.
I WILL get something together and WE WILL celebrate this together again hopefully in a month - or so!
Thank you all once again for being so utterly wonderful over the last two years. It has been amazing and I hope that we have many more years of bloggy happiness together!!!!
Here are some of my most favourite photos that I have shared with you in the last two years.
These are of course only a very few memories! Thank you for making them with me though.
