Celebrating 200!

*Happy Dance!*
It was so exciting to see that magic number, 200 followers!
I can’t begin to tell you what an encouragement and a blessing it is to me to reach this milestone.
I thought that I’d take this opportunity to share just a little about what this journey has meant to me so far and about myself, the mama behind the blog.
Why I started blogging:
- to share the ideas and projects we were doing so others could enjoy them too
- to have an outlet since I’m currently staying at home
- to get some sort of validation for what I do as a SAHM
Things I didn’t expect:
- to ‘meet’ so many amazing people
- to gain a significant following
- to start an Etsy shop
- to gain sooooo much inspiration; far more than I give!
- to learn basic HTML code
- to be up for a Parents magazine best blog award! {ps. have you voted? :) }
I am a(n):
- mama, wife, daughter, friend
- Jesus-follower
- ballroom dancer
- creative thinker
- artist
- kid at heart
- wannabe broadway star
- amateur graphic designer
- teacher
- child of God
- boogie wiper, chef, chauffer, personal assistant to Little Crafter
I love:
- my family
- dancing
- creating something beautiful for someone else
- Starbucks
- fall
- coconut mocha frappucinos
- the beach
- eating dinner at a nice restaurant
- seafood
-  roller coasters
- planting and caring for my garden
- photography, photo editing
- the holiday season
- giving gifts
- making and wearing jewelry
- shopping for clothes
- playing the piano and singing
- Lucky and Family Fun magazines
- Ravens football
I don’t love:
- snakes
- spiders and other insects, particularly in my house
- the fact that no matter how much laundry I do, I’m never caught up
- bathroom cleaning
- long car rides
- ignorance
- winter weather
- February
- changing diapers
- disappointing people
- flying
- lightning storms
- doctors’ offices and germs
How I’m going to celebrate 200 followers {and my upcoming 6 month blogaversary}:
- with a bit of a blog makeover!  Did you notice the new header and the little sidebar titles?  And I made me some social media buttons too!  I wanted something a little more streamlined and pulled together…do you like it?
- with a BIG FAT GIVEAWAY WEEKEND!
September 17-19, I’ll be featuring giveways from six spectacular lady bloggers plus a few things from this Artsy Mama:

Be sure to come back and enter them all!  And don’t forget the Fall Craft Challenge starts this Friday!  I can’t wait!  I’m so excited about all that the future holds for me and my little blog…and I want to sincerely
thank you
for being a part of this journey with me.
Hugs,

    You left ‘an incredibly kind fellow blogger’, out of that list! I am still over whelmed that you took the time to make me a beautiful button for my blog! Thank you so much for taking part in the blog link up! I hope you enjoyed looking at all the other blogs taking part.
