Memories




Take a walk down memory lane with me, please!




I can hardly believe that I'm about to celebrate my 5th blogiversary - five years - wowzer!!!! It all started in June 2006 and here we are five years later - it's been a wild ride. LOL

I've been thinking about a fun way to celebrate this milestone - five years is BIG! :-) So, while I've been plotting and thinking I thought about the ways I've celebrated in the past.



2007 - 1st Blogiversary





I had you guess how many quilts were in my red quilt cabinet.





2008 - 2nd Blogiversary





I had you guess how many yo-yos were in the jar. The large wabbit is Joy and Thimbles is in the jar with the yo-yos. LOL






2009 - 3rd Blogiversary






I had you guess the contents of this "Lunchbox Sewing Kit".







2010 - 4th Blogiversary





We celebrated for four days with lots of mayhem, madness & foolishness. LOL
Way too many things to mention. :-)







Stay tuned because in a day or two I'll be throwing a party to celebrate FIVE






BIG YEARS of blogging. I hope you'll come back to party with me.





In Friendship
