Belated Blog-versary & Candy!!

Happy 'versary to me, Happy 'versary to me, Happy 'veeeerrrssaaarrrreeeee to meeeeeee, Happy 'versary to me!!! Country Frog Creations is ONE YEAR OLD!! (as of September 4th that is)

Who woulda thunk that I'd still be here after a year...actually posting my life happenings and my creations. I have come a long way, I think. Style changes, blog changes, friend changes, and reading ever-so-many blogs (in other words stalking)! I've met so many new people, and I love all your work, and would never have thought I'd have friends that are clear across country.

Who woulda thunk that anyone (other than my close friends) would even read MY blog?? I figure that someone would stumble across it eventually, or blog hop like I do, but over 5,000 hits - I am speachless!

To show my appreciation, and being so thrilled you have stopped by at one point or another to read my life happenings, or to give me a kind complement on a project I had posted, or to lend a bit of life support, I'M GIVING AWAY CANDY!!! No, not the stuff you eat.....the good stuff......the craft stuff!!

This will be a cool collection mixed bag of sorts from vintage to what's "happenin' now". I will post a picture of the goodies as soon as I put it together...hopefully tomorrow after dinner. (no sports so I'll be at home - yah!)

What do you need to do to be the GRAND PRIZE WINNER?? Leave me a post, an HONEST post, of what you like, dislike, what you'd like to see different on my blog. Do I talk too much? Not show enough work? Not post enough? Just spit it out here - really! (don't forget to leave your email addy too)

I will pull a name out of my "hat" SUNDAY, SEPT 14th about 9 p.m. (It's DH's B-day so we'll be doin' something special and won't be home till late.)

I am always glad you visit.......until tomorrow friends!

(P.S. Don't forget to add me to your blog list too!)

Happy Anniversary Bev! I better check my date must be soon. Your blog has reinvented itself alot over the past year...I love when you post pics of vintage stuff you've found. You're probably posting fewer cards and projects and you do such good us more of those. I don't know how the daily bloggers do it. Sometimes once a week is a struggle for me. Anyway-keep bloggin and visiting the rest of us. You obviously have lots of "lurkers", too shy to say howdy. Cheers!

Happy Anniversary Country Frog! You've come a long way baby! I can remember when we first met at one of those Friday night crops. Your work has evolved so much since then. So proud of you! I love the vintage goodies you post and am envious of some of them - like that that bike too cool - an adult 3 wheeler, much safer! Post more creations! I know you must craft alot - lets see more of it.

Hi Bev! Thanks for leaaving me your favorite author. He is officially on my recommended list. The kids are only 4,3 and 1 so they won't know whats happening with the tv. i just don't want them to grow up not doing homework or going out to play b/c they are too usy on the comp or watching tv. Congratulations on your Blogiversary! Hmmm i think I would like to see more pictures! I love pictures. i don't think you write too much though. You write just enough.
I love your def. of candy. I could do without the sweet sugary type of candy if I got to buy the craft stuff instead :)

Hi Bev, Congratulations on your anniversary. I would like you to post more! Easy for me to say, huh? I enjoy your blog. Keep up the good work. I'll be watching the Steelers game also. My husband grew up in Jefferson Boro and even though we're in NH we are true Steeler fans. I lived in PA in 1995 and got to experience the Steeler football season first hand. That is when I became a fan. Unbelievable!! I grew up in CT, and didn't know that we had the New England Patriots!(back in the 70/80's) The Patriots have what I call fair weather fans, unlike the Red Sox who has fans through think and thin like the Steelers. Enjoy the game. GO STEELERS!! My e-mail is slp1999atverizondotnet

Happy Anniversary! I found you because I just started my own blog...and I started making button bracelets and one thing led to Button Floozies and here we are :) I hope I'm still going strong a year from now and that I can keep it up daily. Thank you for the ephemera,which is something else I love to look at and use,reminds me of the scrapbooks my grandmother used to make for us out of brown paper bags she sewed together :)

I always like to see more creations and maybe a little less personal stuff but your blog is fairly balanced compared to some. I'd love to win the candy and will definitely be checking in to see those future creations.

Well, happy blog-a-versary!
