My One Year Blogiversay — a HUGE thanks! And lots of blabbering…

Well this is it!  January 7th I have been blogging for an entire year!  A few things:
  • I hope y’all are all enjoying the celebration!  I racked my brain for something to do to celebrate and this week came to be…y’all have fun! :)
  • This year has been great!  I have grown to almost 900 followers and 1300 or so via feedburner. (Amanda if you read this…feedburner count is always wrong so I am guessing here!) 
  • I started this adventure because I needed to spruce up my home.  This blog has given me the motivation and the accountability to stay on track.  As I look around my house today, I have come a long way baby!  But there is so much more to do!
  • I need to give each of you that read this (if you made it this far) a HUGE thanks!  Thanks for coming here everyday.  Thanks for reading this blabber.  Thanks for commenting.  Thanks for clicking.  Thanks for letting me link to your parties.  Thanks for just being there!  Y’all rock!
  • Also a huge thanks if you have ever purchased from or even been to my etsy shop!  I am almost at 100 sales and THRILLED with my results so far!
So with that…what can you expect in 2011?? 
1)  I am going to try to do an organizing post every week (here is where that accountability comes in!!)
2)  More crazy crafts cause I just can’t stop!
3)  Transformations — oh yeah!!
4)  A big boy room makeover is on my mind and will be on the blog before you know it!
5)  I will of course keep up the blabbering that y’all love so much!
6)  Tutorials, budget crafts, my attempts at home decor, and oh yeah…OH SO MUCH FUN!!
So y’all stick around!  Tell all your friends!  And remember that you rock! :)
