Today my little wee blog turns 1 - yep a whole year of blogging from MiraNarnie headquarters!!
I remember the night well - It was late - Australia Day Public Holiday nearly over and our movie for the night had finished. I was on the computer, searching a bit of Etsy, a bit of crafty stuff....and checking out some blogs that I knew about but had to memorise in order to go and visit....
"could I.....hmmm.....really? Surely I couldn't blog? erh...I'll give it a go.....
And so I did! It was really late - and I turned to my husband and said "I think I just started a blog!"
"No a blog..."
But to this day darling dearest still refers to this little creative outlet of mine as The Blob! I think it's cute...he often asks, "what's going on blob today?"
365 days later and I'm having a ball! It has opened my world to a lovely bloggy community, a place where crafty, vintage-y, fabric loving, young at heart, high spirited and all round fantastic people hang out! I do so often put an open palm up to my forehead and say "why oh why did I take so long"
But the main thing is I'm here now. Here are few snippets of what I got up to over the year. Some highlights for me; opening up a shop on Etsy and Made It; booking a stall at various markets; meeting some amazing bloggers both face to face and virtually; having some great giveaways; receiving some lovely handmade treasures; participating in swaps; being motivated to get out of the trackies and take pictures of myself, finding awesome recipes that make you stop whatever it was you were doing (which was finding the recipe!) to go and cook/bake said recipe; being inspired, sharing stories, but most of all...
just feeling part of a great community! Happy Bloggy Birthday Blob!
