It's My Blog's Birthday!!!!

One year ago today I made a decision that changed my life! I began this blog. I had no idea what I was doing or why I was doing it but I wanted a blog. I had been reading blogs for several months and it just seemed like such a fun way to interact with people. Little did I know how many people I would meet, how many friends I would make, and how much fun I would have.

I hope there's enough cake for everyone....there's champagne over there on the table, and don't forget to grab a balloon.

I think this past year has been one of the best years of my life. And it's all because of YOU! I love everyone who comes here to visit and leave a comment, and I sincerely appreciate that you take the time to do so. I hope that the next year will be even better. I wish I had presents for each and every one of you....but you know I'm not that organized!

I will post some art and mail later today....after the party. Now I'm off to grab some champagne and to toast all my blogger friends.

And just so there is something fun to do here is a little color thingie.


You give your love and friendship unconditionally. You enjoy long, thoughtful conversations rich in philosophy and spirituality. You are very loyal and intuitive.

Find out your color at!

I guess blue is part of what makes purple!!


  1. HaPpY BlOg DaY! It is still chilly here!

  2. Happy Bloggy Birthday!! Very cool!! Having a blog has been a very good thing for me too! I've "met" lots of wonderful, creative people (like yourself!)

  3. Happy birthday (anniversary) dear blogging pal!

  4. Happy Blog Birthday, Janet! Loving this party! :) It won't be long 'til my first anniversary too (I must go check the date). More champagne?! Don't mind if I do! :)
    I'm very glad to have met you, Janet, and wish you many happy years of blogging!

    Cheers! :)

  5. Happy BLOG Birthday...isn't it fun to say "I'm a year old" ? instead of wellllll we won't go there!!!!
    LOL, More cake please.

  6. Happy blog day. I am so happy to have found you.

    Welcome to CIP too.

  7. Happy blog birthday Janet, it's a great party, how about opening another bottle of champagne. Lovely slurrrp!

  8. Happy Blog Birthday Janet!
    I have been reading and enjoying your blog for a few months now. When I first discovered blogs I thought they were for young people but have realised that age doesn't matter. Your preious post about becoming an artist at 63 really struck a chord with me. I too wanted to do art many years ago but was persuaded to go down the academic route instead - now at 54 I am beginning to find myself again. Being left suddenly by my husband of 25 years has also prompted a search for me - hopefully the journey will be a creative one with lots of wonderful inspirational people like you in it. Next stop - my own blog - maybe!

  9. Happy BDay to you!

    yep, blue is part of purple! Have a great day, Janet!

  10. Happy BlogBirth Day!
    It's always fun to stop by and see what you are up to. Thanks for the cake!

  11. Happy Blogday, Janet! Looks like there's a blue balloon left...they're my favorite. I'll sneak a slice of cake too. And what a clever cake it is...I'm grabbing chocolate, but I see someone else's has turned out to be raspberry cheesecake. Simply amazing!

  12. Happy Blogging birthday!!! I am so glad you decided to blog or I would have never met you either. And I cherish your friendship alot!!

  13. Happy Birthday Blog! Did you save me some champagne? Didja, huh??

  14. Happy Birthday, Janet's blog! (raising glass of champagne towards blog) - Here's a toast to you and Janet - may you blog happily together for many years to come!
    So glad you decided to start blogging, Janet!
    Mmm, this cake is delicious, thank you - and thanks for the balloon, too! (Tinker picks a purple balloon on the way out, despite having found out she's the color green in quiz :)
