1 - 2 - 3....It's Party Time!!!!

It's party time! That's because today The Lavender Loft is three years old! I made it through the terrible twos and now it's on to whatever they call the threes!

I baked a cake just for you. And then I brought out the party hats....

Sorry about the quality of the photo!!

And now it's time for a toast to all my readers, new and old.

Some of you have been with me from the start and others have joined in along the way. I opened the door to Blogland, stepped inside, and discovered a whole new world. A world of encouragement, support, friendship, and so much more than I could ever have dreamed possible. There are times when I don't keep in contact like I should and emails go unanswered for awhile but that is never because I've lost interest in you. Life sometimes has a habit of getting in the way!

So to thank all of you for being with me through these past three years I'm going to do a little repeat of my last giveaway. If you leave a comment on this post anytime until Sunday night (Feb 22) at midnight you will be entered for a chance to win a one year digital subscription to either Cloth Paper Scissors or Quilting Arts.

I had such a huge response on the last one that I felt I wanted to do it again for my regular give all of you a better chance at winning.

I'm looking forward to many more years here in Blogland. Thank you all for making it a fantastic journey.

    Wishing you many more happy and creative years in the world of blog…


  23. Happy, Happy, Blogaversary!!!! I believe mine will be in May. I started just a few months after you did. I am so glad we met as I feel like I have known you forever. Still hoping you will move closer one day soon.

  24. COngratulations, Janet! Three years in blogland is like almost a lifetime, isn't it? I guess this happens for the intensity of ideas and emotion that we receive here.

    I hope from my heart that you keep with us for more than other three years! :o)
    And of course I'd love to join again this giveaway for a chance!

    Kisses from Nydia.

  25. Ooh, a yummy cake!
    Happy Blogoversary!

  26. Congratulations, Janet! And I know all too well what you mean when you say life gets in the way sometimes. With me, a hard winter, SAD and a bum knee have gotten in my blogging/commenting way. Here's to many more years!

  27. How exciting! Do we get to wear party hats, too! Congrats on 3 years! I love your blog and enjoy seeing your art! You are very talented!

  28. I'm late with my blog reading, but it's not late to congratulate you your blogoversary! It's been a joy and a treat to follow your through blogland the past three years and I'm looking forward to many more!
    BTW - I love the new look of the blog. It might be new only for me, because most of the time I'm following it through google reader (and it doesn't show the background, banner etc). It looks great! xo
