First Blog Anniversary

January 31st, 2009 · 29 Comments

I almost missed my one year blog anniversary! I started this blog very quietly on January 31, 2008, and I am very happy I took the plunge back then. I’d like to thank you all for visiting me this past year by offering some blog candy: the Serene Spring hostess set from the Fall-Winter 2008 catalog, various 6″ x 6″ sheets of (retired) Designer Series Paper and a few of my handmade cards.

Interested? Then leave a comment for me right here. Since I started my blog by posting what my favorite color is, why don’t you tell me your favorite color combination. I will draw a name at random on Friday, February 6 to determine the winner of the blog candy and make a card with the winner’s favorite colors.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks for sharing your creations. I love checking out your blog. It’s hard to say what my favourite colour combination is – but I’m still in love with Chocolate chip with either a pink or a light blue. Congratulations on your anniversary.

    Congratulations on your anniversary. it doesn’t seem like it has been a year. There are so many great color combinations it is hard to choose. I guess I would have to say Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Very Vanilla. Brown seems to be the new black right now.

    Happy one year! I am totally addicted to pink and brown. I even dress myself and my daughter in them as ofter as possible!

    Congratulations on your “anniversary”, Vera! I sure am glad I found you . . . you have opened up a whole new “world” for me this past year. I’m not certain I have a favorite color combo, but I do like:
    Always Artichoke/Cranberry Crisp/So Saffron
    Basic Gray/Rose Red/Sahara Sand

    Congratulations on a wonderful year of blogging! I don’t have a particularly favorite color combo, but I tend to lean towards the rich regals. I love not quite navy with kraft, elegant eggplant with always artichoke, and chocolate chip with just about anything!

  • 24 jmniffer // Feb 3, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    Congrats on the one year blogging anniversary. My color favorites change with the seasons. Right now I’m liking bashful blue with certainly celery. Thanks for the chance to win. jmniffer
