Haby birthday to me!

Where has the last 3 years gone!
I started this blog on the 1st September, 2008 with a post describing the women in my life who have influenced my creative passions. 
There have been a lot of posts since (542 in fact), some that are now a little cringe worthy but many that I'm really proud of.
It's been a roller coaster of some lows (a knitting workshop that was cancelled) and many highs including an overwhelming response to my online sewing school.
So if you see a 40ish woman, resembling the image above, running towards you on the street trying to give you a bear hug, please don't call the police it's just me.
I feel I've gotten to know many of you on such a personal level that if I met you on the street I would  probably smother you with a hug to say thank you for your support and being a friend.
I haven't finished yet, there's still a lot to come but I'm so glad you're all on this ride with me. 

I'll be celebrating all month and will end with my biggest giveaway yet.

No way.. is that you in the pic??? You're supposed to be brunette - that's how I pictured you cos your logo lass is brunette & you certainly do not look like you are in your 40's let alone your 30's!
Happy bloggy bday to you! ... You made me go back & look at how old my blog is... and my first post was on the 16th May 2009...wow.. I don't even remember writing that post! Whatever did we do before we had blogs!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done!!

Jodie it's so nice to put a face to your name...and I agree with Rie, you don't look a day over 30 :)

Happy bloggy Birthday...I may not always comment but I have read every post since finding you.

Have a great day.

Habby, bloggy birthday!

I'm in my 40s so everyone looks younger than me, including you!

May you have another year of happy blogging ahead of you.

I think I read that post, around that date or soon thereafter. Yours was one of the first blogs I started reading which inspired me to start my own not so long after!

And actually in that photo you look like Mariah Carey, in a good way, and no jokes either!:)

Jodie said...

Thank you for all your lovely comments xx

Rie & Bree, you girls have been with me from the very start - and before blogging Rie there was very bad Television.

I do want to make mention that there is a hell of a lot of layering of effects on that image to get the candles the way I wanted them - in the process, the layers very nicely filled in all my wrinkles and added a bit of a fuzzy lens LOL!

Happy Bloggiversary Jodie!
We probably met each other many moons ago at the Flemington Market in your Poss Bloss days.
You don't look a day over 30!

Congratulations Jodie. Well done on 3 years of great tutorials, hints and crafty business posts. Very impressive. I am in a little bit of a blogging lull right now so am amazed by your continuing blogging commitment and enthusiasm.
