I really couldn't wait until the end of the month and my regular Month in Numbers post to share a few special numbers with you. So here goes ...
I'm 2 today!
Well, actually my blog is. I began writing these here notes on paper on the 8th of November 2008.
Somehow though, it feels like longer, in a good way ...
Since I began blogging, my creative career has moved on so far. What with regularly freelancing for crafting magazines; opening an etsy shop and delivering my own online classes ... I'm actually doing what I've dreamed of [throw in a book deal and I'm done!].
And I have the dark circles under my eyes and the smile on my face to prove it.
In an oddly appropriate coincidence, the exact day of my 2nd blog anniversary just happens to be the 1st time I've featured in a newspaper!
Before you ask, yes, that is me looking through a coathanger and holding out my pom-poms for all to see ... but apart from the awkwardness of seeing myself in print the feature, about the Copy + Paste 12 Days workshops, is more than I ever could have hoped for.
Especially when it all came about as an optimistic tweet to the paper's Family Life editor!
I still believe that that's true.
Thanks for keeping me company over these last two years.
