I almost can't believe my humble little blog is a year old.  The time has flown by . . . really. Most amazing to me is there's actually people out there interested in what I have to say or share.  With soooo much great stuff out there in blogland, sometimes I wonder how little ole me captures anyone's attention.  

I thank you, all of you.  Those of who drop by regularly, or who stop by occasionally.  I so appreciate those of you who comment frequently, or just now and again.  And those of you who don't comment, I appreciate your visits as well.  I know you're out there . . . the regular readers who don't comment! ;o)  hehe  And that's quite fine as well.  I "lurk" around many blogs myself.

So, as I mentioned in my last post, in standard blogger celebration style, I'm going to share my one-year milestone with all of you by giving away some of my creations.  I so love to create anything with paper (scrapbooker at heart, but loves to dabbling in the "other arts" too ~ sounds like witchcraft!), and Halloween being one of my most fun and favorite times of the year ~ second to Christmas ~ I'm giving away some

All Hallow's Eve 

inspired pieces that I've created.

All you need do is to leave a comment on this post.  If you'd like another chance at winning, simply put a blurb anywhere on your blog about my celebration giveaway, and come back here to comment that you've done so.

I really do wish I could give you all a little "party favor" to celebrate.  Who knows, maybe if I don't get too many comments, I just may!  

Before I share the spooktacular goodies I'm planning to giveaway up close and in detail, you'll have to bear with me while I share my most favorite pics from the last year.  At the end of the One-Year Photo Montage, you'll find detailed pictures of the giveaway.

Hope you enjoy this little peak through my last year of blogging.

Thanks for indulging me while I went through just a few of my favorite pics from the past year.  If you think you can stand viewing just a few more pics, I'll share some up-close, detailed pics of the pieces in the giveaway.

I will draw the winning name for my One-Year Blogiversary giveaway Saturday morning.
I've decided to extend the giveaway {since it's shaping up to be a busy weekend!}, and I'll draw the winning name Monday morning.  

Thanks for visiting! 
 Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

Good morning Carla!
Just want to congratulate you once more on your blogging anniversary. I LOVE the pictures that you have shared with us. My most favorite (although it's so hard to chose) is the wheelbarrow with the watering can in it, all decorated for Christmas and winter. Love that you kept the 'garden' in winter :)
Have a great weekend !!

I know I'm too late for the giveaway BUT I did want to say Happy Blogiversary to you!! What a fun idea to share your favorite pics from the past year. I enjoyed seeing them again.
Three of my favorites are your son in the snow, the cardinal in the snow, and your front proch in the snow. I do like snow!!

Congrats again...I'm looking forward to another year of visiting your blog!

Patina Marie said...

What a great post! Loved the photo re-cap (although) new to me! Lots of great shots, but I liked the Winter porch shots - pre and post snowfall...

Really fun Halloween swags. Cricut?

Congrats on year ONE.
