The Party is Three Hundred Strong!


This morning I awoke to 3oo people officially following this blog! Amazing!

When I started this blog almost two years ago, I never dreamed that anybody would read it, let alone follow it. I didn't even know what followers were until I was stumbling around on dashboard one day and discovered that I had some. I had to stumble around some more to see what that meant.

I am now the proud host of a wild party that just keeps going. I have a few new people to greet before we get on to other things.

I am always forgetting that blogger hides people without photos at the end of the list. If I have missed welcoming anyone, please forgive me.

From that part of the list, I found Aino of Tiitelintaatelin tuuteli http://tiiteli.blogspot.com/ She has minis and other crafts featured on her blog.

Also from that part of the list are some other mysterious people in the shadows......Snowberry,Merchu,Olivia.K.Alexander,Marika,Whittedraak,Irene, and Melabelo
Some people from the front of the list are Cheryl, Troy Bettridge,Pepi_mali, Evelyne M, Black Box and Miniannalee. They have the photos, but no info that I could find.

Next there is Lotte of Loten Nukkekotipaivakirja http://lottasatomaa.wordpress.com/ Her shoes are out of this world.

Then there is Claudia of Mockingbird Hill Cottage http://mockingbirdhillcottage.blogspot.com/ Her blog is mostly about living in a wonderful vintage cottage. Really neat.

Now about that three hundred......We need to really party. There will be a surprise in the mail to one of my followers. If you are a follower and want to get in on it, please send a comment to this entry. Followers may be old or new. In other words, you can sign up as a follower and make a comment, but you must be on the followers list. One comment per person please. I will give you until midnight of my birthday to comment. That is Saturday, January 30. On Sunday January 31, I will draw a name out of the hat and that person will, upon sending me their snail mail address, receive a surprise gift. I am celebrating 300 followers and my birthday all in one. Now LET'S PARTY!!!!!!!!!
P.S. I decided to make this my entry for today. I'll be back with the beaded bottles tomorrow.
See you then!

First Happy Birthday, I know it's a bit early ...
I am not surprised that you have so many followers, your blog shows beautiful things, it's full of humour with Tessie, it's simply great. It also shows that when you do things with your heart you are rewarded.

Thanks for the welcome. I guess I should add a profile picture at some point, and stop being so mysterious. :)

Congratulations on your first of many milestones. I found you surfing and was intrigued by the story. Then I had to start reading from the beginning back in 2008.

Thank you so much for the stories and tutorials. I'm thinking about picking minis up again if my eyesight can handle it.

Pat said...

I'll find you yet... can I win now?

Pat said...

Hey Casey... trying again. It's Pat.

Evelyne Martin said...

er... long overdue, but today I found this welcome post. I... think... "Evelyne M" is me!... :) I first started following your blog using another profile, then I changed it and now I use this one. I had to click on "follow" again. I've been an actual follower for a long time, though. :)
And I'm not ashamed to admit that I've learned A LOT from your posts all this time. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
