1 Year Blogoversary and Some Candy!!!

Good morning! Today is my 1 year Blog Anniversary {aka Blogoversary!} and this marks my 328th post. It took me quite awhile to jump into the blogging world {mainly because I didn't think anyone would ever read my blog!}. Throughout the year I've had a lot of fun participating in challenges, sharing my creations and "meeting" fellow crafters in the cyber world.



In appreciation, I am offering a little blog candy, which includes:
along with the following items {donated by Stacy ~ thanks so much, my friend!!!}:
  • C.C. Designs Sugarplums ~ Mermaid Emma rubber stamp
  • Petaloo Jeweled Florettes ~ Fall
  • 2 yards of each of these ribbons: Hunter Green, Ocean, Sky Blue and Lavender Twill and Grape Jam and Key Lime Pie Grosgrain
If you'd like a chance to win, please submit a comment and let me know what your favorite fall tradition is. Ours used to be to head north to the Young's Farm Pumpkin Festival, but sadly they closed a few years ago.  You have until midnight PST on Thursday, 9/24, to enter. I will pick one random winner on Friday!

I hope you're enjoying your weekend! I'll be back on Monday... Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Happy Blogaversary! Our tradition is to ride over to the Blue Ridge Parkway and look at the leaves - they are so beautiful!

  2. I love your blog and your creations. Each Fall Break, we drive over to a nearby Wildlife Refuge. We drive through and look for buffalo, elk, and longhorns. the kids love to feed the prairie dogs. We also hike a trail that follows a river and drive to the top of Mt. Scott where we can see far and wide southwest Oklahoma. Then we drive to historic Mountain Park to eat supper and feed the fish in the creek below the restaraunt.

  3. Happy Blog Anniversary!!! It's been great following a very talented person. We just moved to Texas, but when we lived in Wisconsin we had a lot of traditions. How can you not love the fall air? We used to travel north to an Apple Orchard and pick up LOTS of apples, enjoy a carmel apple or maybe even fresh apple pie. We would go home and I would make my children's favorite Apple Crisp. Thanks for asking and thanks for sharing.

  4. Happy Blogaversary Stephanie!!! I love your work, it is AWESOME and so inspiring. Our favorite tradition is raking the leaves with the kids and watching the kids play in them when they were younger. They have now grown, but it is amazing that we still seem to do this same tradition in the fall. Playing in the leaves is not quite and active now that the kids are so much older, but they still love to do it!

  6. Happy Blogaversary. In the Fall I love to go to a nursery and buy some of the luscious, brightly-colored mums to set around the outside of our home.

  7. Happy Blogiversary!! (I am a bit of anomaly as I feel that it should be spelt with an i not an o!! But please ignore me!)

    In can case my favourite autumn tradition? Ummmm I don't think that I really have a tradition unless you count my birthday which comes in early November - which means that fireworks (for me anyway) are more firmly associated with my birthday rather than the 5the November tradition!!

  8. Happy Blogaversary Steph.

    We don't really have a tradition as such - but today we were walking around a local park picking up conkers. I can see this becoming the traditional thing to do in late September. My two little girls were having so much fun.

  12. Happy Blogaversary! In the fall I love to go for a walk and swish my feet through the fallen leaves, while feasting my eyes on the beautiful colors and smell the woodsmoke.

  14. Congratulations! My favorite fall memory is taking the kids to the pumpkin patch and then coming home and decorating the house with all the warm fall decor. The smells of pumpkin pie and apple crisp...YUM!!

  15. Happy blogaversery! We live in Michigan, so the colors are beautiful in the fall. Love to go for walks. In September, my mother and I have a trip to the Sewing Show in Novi each year.

  16. My fav fun fall thing is Halloween. I love seeing all the little kids get dressed up in silliness (we don't do scary) and pretend for one night to be something out of the books or dreams or movies. I sit on my front porch with my bucket of goodies with the dog and chat with all the little ones who stop by. Then I go inside and hibernate until June. I used to do comic books as giveaways but I may do playdough again this year. It's hard to judge how many visitors I will get. Some years maybe 30 other years 300. We are at the mercy of mother nature.

  18. Happy Blogiversary girl! How exciting for you! :D We don't really have a fall tradition but I am hoping to start one once we start a family! When I was little we would go to a pumpkin patch, pick out our own pumpkin, carve it, and then take pictures with it! It was always so fun!

  21. Happy Blogaversary...Our fall tradition is going as a family to pick out and cut pumpkins. Then of course, we always prep the seeds to snack on. We also love to drive through the country looking at the foliage and hiking.

  22. Happy Blogoversary to YOU! Wow your blog is awesome. This is some really sweeeeet celebration candy you are sharing in blogland. The Saturday before Halloween we do a Pumpkin Fest. We have a bonfire with family and friends and carve pumpkins, do a hayride, play games and of course cook hot dogs on the fire and have smores. Thanks so much for a chance.

  23. I know how you feel about thinking no one reads your blog, but it goes to show you that people do. My fave tradition for Fall is to decorate our house with scarecrows and cute Halloween decorations. Our neighborhood goes all out so I have joined in since moving here 3 years ago. Congrats on your blogoversary! Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy.

  25. Happy Blogoversary. I found your blog from "The Spotted Chick" blog. Love your creations We don't really have any fall traditions (living in Central Florida,there is not much change in the weather). We just spend time with family on the holidays.

  27. See I thought I did it wrong the first time. Let's see .... when I was a littel girl my family used to drive across Iowa, no matter how bad the snow storm, to visit both my parent's familys. We would have two celebrations for every holiday. I miss my family now as we are over 2,000 miles away ... and that's a little to far to drive.
