Welcome to "Grow Your Blog 2015"!
Hi, Diane here with you today.
For the last 3 yeasr Vicki at "2 Bags Full" has sponsored and worked very hard at bringing
bloggers together from all kinds of talent for a "meet and greet".
I have joined since the first "Grow Your Blog" in 2013 and have "met" some
wonderful blog friends.
To those of you that are familiar with me already know that my passion is
"paper crafting" and "gardening" and "cooking" and "sewing".
I have been blogging since February 29th 2008
and have never looked back. Here is my very first post I did, I thought it would be fun (and funny...lol) to share it Nellies Nest!
I decided not to talk too much about me
(you can read my profile at the top tabs "About Me" at the top of my blog)
if you would like,
but to share with you some altered projects I did for Christmas presents .
My sister, Mom, daughter and niece and I do a countdown to Christmas
every year and we each buy each other 8 gifts,
they can be whatever we want, and I normally make at least one gift.
This year another friend "Judy" gifted a group of friends with the most adorable
little altered birdhouses, I just loved it, so thought I would make some for gifts.
The first one I did for my niece "Amy" as she is a fan of owls.
The second one was for my sister "Linda", I tried to make hers a bit more "shabby chic"
and she is a collector of "teapots" so I added a bit of those as well!
The third one I did for my daughter "Lori",
she is a photographer, so I had to put that little camera
on hers, as well as the squirrel, it was a joke between us, so perfect!
The last one was my Mom's...
her favorite color is yellow, so that kind of says it all I think.
I will leave you with a few of my garden photos,
yes, these are from my own gardens
and they make me happy just looking at them
knowing that in a few months time
I will be out there enjoying them once again...let the countdown begin!
I hope you have enjoyed your visit with me...and not required, but I WOULD LOVE
for you to become a follower, I really need to "Grow My Blog"!!
Mark Feb 29th on your calendars as I will be having "blog candy" celebrating my
SEVEN years of blogging!!
