It's my anniversary (blogiversary?)

Yesterday was the one month anniversary of my blog. It's been unbelievably fun. I'm motivated to start (and finish) new craft projects so I can share them, and I love getting feedback. It's so much better than stuffing my projects away in a drawer, never to be seen again.

I've made some new friends and discovered so many fantastic blogs! I want to take a moment to share some of the wonderful people and places I've stumbled across here in blog-blog land.

I need to take a moment to apologize-- I read that the polite thing to do when you post a picture from someone else's website is to link the picture back to the page it came from. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do that. If anyone is bothered by this, drop me a note and I will remove your picture.

The first treasure I want to share is the irresistible Not-So-Plain Jane . Her humor and warmth shine through in her writing, and she has a special place in my heart because she was one of the first people who isn't related to me to comment on my blog! Be sure to check out the charming post, I name inanimate objects , and the gorgeous jewelry she bought on Etsy from Laura Lewis' shop .

The Purl Bee has the cutest projects. I LOVE this bunny .

And then there is Giuliana Lazzerini . I want to decorate all of my walls with her art. And she was kind enough to let me use the image of the golden bird on the swing from this lovely, lovely picture .

Have I mentioned I love it

Another treasure is Thimbleanna . Check out these adorable knitting journals on her blog.

Last but not least is the wise and wonderful Lesley Riley . She is an incredibly talented artist and writer .

There is much more I want to share, but it's getting late and the little black kitty is crying to go out. Thank you to all who take the time to share your thoughts and projects on your blogs-- you inspire me.

PS. I almost forgot-- be sure to check out the extraordinary
Attic24 .

Hello hello! I'm just sitting here smiling because you said such nice things about me and my blog! Thanks! Isn't this a fun place to be? Congratulations on your first month - I've only been here for two, so the excitement is still with me, too.
Oh, and I finished my scarf. It's washed and blocked and I'll post pictures soon and show you what I want to do to finish it.
Have a great day! ☺
