Just taking a moment to share with you guys - I have reached 500 followers! The big FIVE - OH - OH (anyone know what SNL skit I am sort of referencing?)

It is just so awesome and I am so excited! I actually kind of can't believe it. It is so fulfilling to have a dream, set goals, work hard, and see things happen. I have talked about a blog for years, and I actually did it - I am doing it. It's a good thing.

No big giveaway - no party. (I already have a giveaway going on here - open until tomorrow). 

Mostly, I just want to thank all of my followers and readers and visitors. You make this fun. Your comments encourage me and make me laugh, and I just love the little community that is going on here. 

I still don't know what my major goals are for this blog - monetizing? nope. etsy? hopefully. designing patterns? that would be fun. For now, I will just let it be. It's my blog, my little corner, something I dreamed of and I am doing. 

And just to break up the mushy - I may have bought this to celebrate: 

I have had the money saved for monthsbut I made a little challenge for myself that I would not buy that baby until I met my first big huge milestone blog goal - 500 followers. Next milestone? 10 million. So, there is much work to be done.

 Yay! Thanks again for being a part of this. I know there are SO many blogs out there to choose from, and I am glad you are taking the time to read what I have to say :)



  1. Wow! Congrats! I have a long way to go, but I'm working on it, and I get so excited for every single one of them! I love your blog and think you do a wonderful job!

  2. I just recently discovered your blog and I love it! Congrats on your first milestone and enjoy the new mixer!

  3. Congrats! I just hit the big 5-0-0 as well...I remember the early days when I strong-armed my friends to read my blog...lol...

    Love that color mixer...

  4. Congrats on 500. I wish I were only that lucky. Love the mixer. I have a white one and wish I it were a different color. So what is your next goal? Please share!


  5. Jess - I guess my next BIG goal will be 1,000 and to finally open an etsy shop. I think everyone has their own perception of what "big" is, and to me 1,000 is like a celeb - haha:)


I appreciate each and every lovely comment you leave!
