  1. *HAS A SPECIAL 10-10-10 BLOG POST
  6. *HAS A SPECIAL 10-10-10 BLOG POST
  8. *HAS A SPECIAL 10-10-10 BLOG POST
  10. - ok, Let me explain why I put mine on here.  Mine is here, not because of how awsome I am (ok, and please don't think I'm serious when I put that!!!! I'm definitely kidding!),  but because I'm so happy with how my blog has grown over the past 18 months.  I was so insecure about my projects, and have been such a private person that I NEVER showed my projects to anybody.  I took an online scrapbook class where we had to post our pictures in a gallery.  That was hard to do, but I got such good feedback that it gave me the courage to start a blog.  And I owe a lot to Sarah My Pink Cricut, because she asked me to be in my first blog hop, and that's when my blog really got going.  Plus she has become a good friend to me, and showed me how kind people can be.  She has a good heart, and really believes in the crafting community.  I've met so many great people on here! And I can't even say how great Facebook has been for me too. That has exposed me to so many people, and so many people to me.  

Ok, and I think our hop hostess deserves her own spot. She absolutely amazed me with a video she made about herself a couple of months ago.  I thought that video was crazy brave!  And she is another person who really believes in people.  You can tell this about her by checking out her other blog which she also put on the hop trail.  Ok, thanks for sticking with me to the end of this LONG post.  I hope you have fun on this hop, and on to the next stop with PaperCrafts by Candace!
