It's my 1 year Blogaversary!

I can't believe it's actually been a year since I started this blog!  My first post was April 28, 2010, where I start by telling the "blog world" a bit about myself.  You can read that post HERE.  My first project I posted was when I used Tim Holtz Ornate Plates to make bookmarks--posted on May 6, 2010.  From there, I just blogged by trial & error--changing my layouts, adding/taking away designs, adding it back...and constantly trying to figure out "blog etiquette"...still.  I also found myself trying to figure out what others were writing when they used acronyms, so I  figured out how to makes other pages for my blog and added a page for "Blog Acronyms".  I figured if I was having trouble following blogs because I didn't know what they were saying, then maybe there were others that didn't know either.  I added other blog links (LoveLee Links) to another page so my Home page wasn't too busy, but there are so many blogs I like to visit now and I haven't had time to update my links like I'm wanting to--if you want to see who I like to "Follow" check out my Profile Page.  It's all still a work in progress, but the journey has been fun so far, and I'm making new friends all the time. 

In celebration of my first year of blogging, I decided to share some Blog Candy!  I'll show a single photo each day for a week (8 different candy offerings), ending on May 8, 2011.  On May 9th, I'll divide the candy offerings into two lots of four -- I'll be using a randomizer to pick TWO winners (since I'm going into my 2nd year).  These two winners will not only receive the four items in their candy lot, but I'll also have some surprises in there as well!  I love surprises--and I hope you will too.  The first winner will have their choice of the two candy lots.  The winners will have until midnight CST May 11, 2011 to contact me via email with their postal address.  If I haven't heard from the winners by then, I'll draw another winner. here's what you need to do to be entered into the drawing:  start by leaving me a comment on this blog post answering the question "What is your favorite flavor of tea (hot or cold)?"  (if you don't like tea, tell me your favorite hot drink).  You can add another "drawing entry" each day by posting a comment on the blog candy post for that day--make sure you answer the "comment" question for each blog post.  For my subscription blog readers, and for my blog readers in Creating the Hive, click HERE to enter your comment for your drawing entry.

BONUS ENTRY -- You do not have to be "Follower" of mine to win, BUT if you are already a follower (or become a follower), let me know in your comments.  Each day, through May 8th, that you leave me a comment (as a follower) you'll get an extra entry--that could be up to 16 drawing entries!

NOTE--you can post your comments on any of the blog candy posts on any day from May 1-8, 2011 for a chance to win.  This one will be posting late in the evening, so many won't see this post until May 2nd. 

Today's blog candy is The Ultimate, by Crafter's Pick!  Click the link to find out more about this glue.  I personally love it!  I've used it for all sorts of papercrafting projects including cardmaking, scrapbooking, book making, and much more. 

So let the fun begin!!
Best of luck to you all...Lisa

(I'm not reimbursed by any company for the products I'll be giving away, I just wanted to thank you--my blog readers--for celebrating with me this first year.)


  1. Well I am a follower and glad we found each other! Happy Blogaversary and many more. I would have to say black tea, because when I drink it, I like iced tea! Although, the sound of the orange ginger tea you had the other day (I think it was that flavor) sure sounded delightful! Have a great evening!

  2. Thank you for the chance to win your blog candy. I don't drink tea but i do like hot chocolate I also love warm milk with a little special coffee creamer in it to give it different flabor. Thanks for the chance to win.
