Happy Blog-aversary

Pin It!

Happy Blog-aversary to me!

This has been quite a year! I have learned sooo much and I hope that I have taught you all a thing or two. Starting a blog was kind of a challenge for myself and a type of diary of my creations. It has turned into such a rewarding experience where I have met some really great people and learned tons of things along the way. I have posted 294 blog posts, I can't tell you how many followers or subscribers I have because I have a variety of ways to subscribe, email, facebook, blogger, feedburner, etc. Also this year I learned how to work my video camera and created 50 YouTube videos and now have over 1000 YouTube subscribers. That just amazes me! Thank you everyone for all your support. I had wanted to do more but I have also had so much going on in my own life too that sometime time wasn't on my side. My youngest son, Nick, bought a home and my oldest stepson, Keith, became a father. What a wonderful year it has been!

Since all of you have shared this past year with me I thought I would share with you too. Every day this week I will be doing a give away. P.S. I have some goodies in store for you!!! All you have to do is leave a comment each day in the comment box for that days post. The comment button is at the TOP of the post. Please leave your email address or a way for me to contact you so I can send you your goodies if you are a winner!!! Good Luck! I thought I would start out with some of my (and yours) favorite posts from this year. If you are new to my blog some of these may be new to you. They are in no particular order...just click on the title or picture to be brought to the post. Then click back to view the next one. Enjoy!

I'd love to hear what your favorite post is. Todays prize is 3 items that comes from the Make your own glimmer mist video!!! I will be sending a happy winner A Complete Ranger Pastel Perfect Pearl Set, 3 Ranger Mini Misters and 1 Darice Metal Bead Scoop that I use in the video. Be sure to leave a comment to win this great prize. I will be choosing the winner tomarrow. And then there will be a new prize offered then. :)

Some of my favorite Posts from the Past Year!

First, congrats on your blog-aversary!!! Good job entertaining us... and hopefully you as well... LOL... I am so glad for your past posts you included that tin tile coffee table, because not only is it my absolute favorite art piece of yours, it is also the post that introduced me to you! Someone sent me the link because they thought the table was gorgeous!!! Of course, I have to agree... it is a one-of-a-kind work of art!!!

Do I have to choose just ONE of my favorites??? You continually inspire and amaze me with all that you do! Out of the posts listed here I'd say the one showing your craft room is one of my favs because it shows how great a room can look with a few cabinets, drawers, wall space, etc. It's what many of us dream about!

Jennifer May 2, 2011 at 9:08 AM  

Wow! I just found your blog and now have you bookmarked. I can spend hours looking at your posts...so glad I found you. I really loved seeing how to make the glimmer mists. I see a trip to Michael's in my very near future:)


Jnett's Place May 2, 2011 at 9:09 AM  

Oh my! I think I want to come and live at your house - no in your craft room. Wow, beautiful and your ribbon stash is great. Love your cabinets too. I'd love to win some free goodies. Thanks for the opportunity.

Congratulations on reaching your first anniversary....personally I hope there are many more to come as I love your blog....always full of great ideas that have certainly inspired me....just one of my favs that helped me greatly was your inventory book...so often I have purchased duplicates without realizing it as my scraproom is very disorganized....after watching your video I immediately set out to make my own book and although it was a great deal of work as it forced me to organize my craft room, I am happy to say it is complete...no more duplications or searching for where something is as I have also catalogued the location of the item....thanks again...super job.... jmbody@shaw.ca

Anita May 2, 2011 at 9:23 AM  

Congrats! I love using the pearls for making my own mist.

Cindy May 2, 2011 at 9:24 AM  

So many choices ~ I'd have to say Studio videos - love it and am so jealous. I shared with my sister, and she and her hubby borrowed some of your ideas. I'm way jealous - because now her room (which I've yet to see pics of because she's still "putting everything into place) is much bigger than my room. Congratulations you on your anniversary.

Anonymous May 2, 2011 at 9:24 AM  

Happy Blog-aversary! I follow your blog regularly and I am amazed at your organization and your energy! I would love to have your space and your craft room! While I do use every organizational tip your share, i have used several. The one that was the most helpful was to organize my embossing alphabetically. That was time consuming but ended up being very worthwhile. Because i do not have the space you have my organization has to be different but -- for the most part -- it works for me! Thanks for offering prizes this week -- very kind of you!

Hi Christie -

Congratulations on your blog-anniversary. I've been following you for about a year now and I love all your posts. I love when you show us such wonderful creations and explain how you did them. I enjoy your videos so much I have become a subscriber also. But I don't have a favorite post. I have a favorite category of posts. I love all your posts and videos that pertain to organization. It could be because I am still trying to organize my studio or it could be a case of studio envy - LOL! Whichever it is (I think its a bit of both), please keep the posts and the videos coming. Oh and one last thing, thank you so much for always posting the current craft coupons. Although I subscribe to a lot of them, I sometimes forget to print them. And I know I can always go to your blog and find the most current one.

I have to say, my very favorite post from today's offerings has to be your craft room tour - hands down. OMGeee! It is so amazing! Not only is it a beautiful room, beautifully decorated, but I love seeing all the various ways you store your supplies. Thank you for taking the time to share your love of all things 'crafty' with us! Looking forward to many more blog-iversaries with you! :o]

One of my favorite posts has been the organizing of you cuttlebug folders. I don't have a Cricut machine but I have a KNK Groove-E so I was able to use the same format. I laminated my sheets once I was done too. That helps a lot for wear and tear

Happy Happy Blog-aversary Christie! I loved all 10 of your fave posts, actually drooled on my keyboard when I saw your amazing craftroom . Coincidentally, I just watched your "make your own glimmer mists" video just last night and "found" your blog today. Nice to put a face with the voice. Made my first mist w/Black soot & pewter PP. Thank you for sharing your techniques with us. Dianne dkspinner@q.com

Very happy Blog-aversary to you Christie! Now, it may sound silly, but my favorite post was the one making a little book out of a single piece of 12x12 double sided paper. I sent your site out to 2 of my crafty type groups who loved it also.
Thank you for the many instructions you have done for us.

Happy Blog-aversary Christie! I first discovered your wonderful blog while searching for ideas for my own craft room. Yours is not only spectacular, but also so well set up it allows you to create such mega projects like the many high heel shoe party favors, or the touching cards you sent to our soldiers, or the lovely party gifts of personalized note books for your many shower guests! You have come up with so many wonderful ideas and helpful techniques and hints, like your creative use of fun foam as dimensional adhesive for your cricut embellishments. It always makes me smile when during your videos you get excited about your project and say "this is so frick'in cute". Thank you for the past year of creative inspiration, may you share many more with all your blogger friends.

Sue in CT May 3, 2011 at 1:12 AM  

Congrats. I guess it is sort of silly to tell you now but you know my favorite is the 12 days of Christmas.

Christie: Thanks so much for the family tree video. I have been wanting to do one for my family. I do have a question, I'm not sure you can answer me. How did you get the fold out branches with the little pictures of everyone. Is it a program? the actual page, how did you put that together to pull out? Again thanks for the videos you do so well. Anita jstfrmnita@yahoo.com

Anonymous May 3, 2011 at 9:37 AM

I have been following you on FB & enjoyed your videos. It was really interesting watching how you set up your family tree scrapbooks. Where did you find the fold out page protectors? I was thinking of using the 12 by 12 scrapbooks as I use the 3 ring ones. Did you have any thoughts on that idea? Thanks for the chance to win goodies. I really love the Scrap n Easel!

My favorites are already there in your favorites!! The make your own shimmer mist, organizing cuttlebug folders (although I am totally jealous of you having the tags bags boxes and more cartridge since it was discontinued before I got a cricut). I really love all your tutorial posts and your tips on organization and stuff like that!! Oh I really like how you store your stickles with the magnets (or was it Velcro??) upside down!! I don't remember if tgat was it's own post or in your tour of your scrap room. :)
