It's my Blogiversary!!

Is that a real word? I don't care!! It's been a whole year since I started my blog today - that's a whole year of designing and I feel like I have come soooo far! And there are many of you that have been there since the start! CaroleN was the VERY first person to comment on my blog and that comment meant the world to me! It meant that someone was reading my blog and was interested in what I was doing - it inspired me to keep designing. Thank you soooooo much Carole - you are one in a million! Other early commenters that I still notice that stop by are Susie2shoes, Tink, Terebene, Brooke in Oregon, nancypinct, HarleyGirl, Sharon aka Scrapcat, Maria, Melody, Sue and Karen. There are many others I'm sure, but I just picked out a few.

Then there are my wonderful scrappy friends that I consider true friends - my amazing CT - Mel, Stacey, Sara, Charlie, Vicki, Diana, Kim and Cheryl. Also, my collaboration partners, Linda and Dawn who are very special to me. I have another collab coming up, so a brand new friend that I have made - watch this space! Also, all the wonderful girls I've met through Scrap N' Art who have inspired me so very much and who I will meet next week in California. I am also hoping to meet with one of my blog readers, Sarah - how awesome is that? I am such a lucky girl to be able to meet with them and I know that there are many who wouldn't be able to make such a trip for whatever reason and so I remind myself everyday how lucky I am.

Well, as it's my blogiversary, I decided I would have a BIG 24 hour sale! ALL of my kits will be half price or less for 24 hours only and then they will all return to full price in preparation for my next kit which will be ready in a couple of weeks! So, go grab what you don't have and enjoy! To say thank you for all your wonderful support, I have also created a P365 freebie for you! It's a set of month date siders with various colourful markers. I do hope you like them - click the image to download. I'll be back tomorrow with the start of a new kit called "Bring on Spring"!! See you then!

Sarah just asked me if I was driving down to meet y'all? How SAD to have to say, NO! Sniff, sniff ... oh well, there is ALWAYS next year when you and Rob come to tour the states! I cannot wait for that GREAT adventure!!! Look out San Francisco!!! LOL!

LOVE the date sliders! I was just looking at some similar ones last night and had thought of making some up! I swear you are my twin sometimes!!! Although, you are the BETTER one!

ENJOY your day of CELEBRATION sweetheart and I shall come visit again later in the day when I've had my ZZZZZZZZ's!!!

WOO HOO, It's time to break out the GOOD wine...and Let's get this party STARTED! I wish I could post the tune here for you...(by Pinky). Along with a BIG banner, it would Say, "Happy 1 First Blogiversary, Ms Vicki". I so enjoy working with you and especial love your designs. They always make us coming back for more.

It must be so exciting to be able to meet the gals you are about to meet from scrapland. I am especial excited for you as I took a trip after the first year I had been at 3S to a retreat they hosted. WE had so much fun, and to be able to share with each other in person was a time I will cherish forever. TONS of photos as we shared them and made a DVD for each of us so that we could have the trip through each others eyes. And I hope that if you and Rob come anyhwere close to the southern east coast I would be honored to come meet with you. ENJOY yourself on this once in a life time adventure and always keep your camera in hand. I can't wait to see them.

Well, I want to say that I am very honored to have meet you and we need to chat together soon. I can't wait to get this schooling done, so that I have more time to just hangout in scrapland. Thank you for the date line...awesome idea and will surely use it in my project 365.

Congrads, and CHEERS (as our wine glasses clink).

Thank you much for this wonderful slider (made exactly the way I had been looking for too!) as well as all of the other great freebies you have given us throughout the year. I found you during Baby Boy and have checked in here pretty much every day since. I normally do all my commenting through 4shared, so you probably dont recognize me :)
Happy Blogiversary and thank so much for all of the goodies. I love seeing how you have grown as a designer.

Have a wonderful anniversary celebration and trip to meet a bunch of your new cyber friends. You are so very talented and generous with that talent, it is much appreciated. Have been following your blog for most of the year and love reading about the dogs and their schooling especially. Thanks for all you do.

A whole year! Well, congratulations to you Vicki on your Blogiversary...that's wonderful. You should know that lots of us don't only come to your blog for the marvelous gifts you so generously offer, but for the fun conversation - and as for me - I also appreciate the inspiration and great ideas I gather from the great layouts I see here.

Thank you so much for all that your blog offers everyday. And today, thank you for the darling date sliders. CONGRATS and may you enjoy many more years!

Happy Blogiversary! It's a word if you say it is! Thanks for everything, including these cool date strips. I love your work.

Congrats!! Thanks for sharing the cool freebie

Simply Sarah said...

Happy happy blogiversary to you! Wow, it has been a year... I have been following you since May or June I think and I still love your designs, your fun outlook on life, the GREAT petscapades. I dont know anyother blog where I can see cute doggies almost daily! You do a super job and will continue to move far thru the digiworld.

Thanks for everything you give us and for being you!

Tink said...

Oh thank you so much for the sliders. Seeing the picture of Lily and Pompey on "their" couch reminded me so much of my sister's babies Jeiger and Weebie (Weimeraniers (sp?)). I buy them doggie popsicles when I know we are going over there. LOL.

Rose said...

Happy Blogiversary! (I'm pretty sure this is a word but if not it will be soon! I found "blogosphere - Definition: a collective term for the world of weblogs, the community of all weblogs; also called blogsphere" lol. Another fantastic freebie, might there be a matching one with numbers 1-52 and the word week at the beginning?? lol And I can totally understand what you mean about your first comment, I only started my blog a couple months ago, and now I have 4 readers, which I think is fantastic as I didn't even think anyone would read what I had to say much less follow along!! Congrats again, and I look forward to the next year of your creativity!! :)

Love the sliders, thank for sharing! I found you from a ikeagoddess. I've been looking for something like this for my 365 book. How hard would it be to make sliders that would cover 7 of the dates? That way you could use it to show the entire week of pictures you are showing.
