Over 800 Posts

Well I cannot believe that I have over 800 posts but I do !

Way back in January of 2007 I started this blog. It has been so fun and I have met so many wonderful people and expanded my horizons and talent as a collage artist since then.

I want to thank all of my followers for watching my blog. I love all of you even though I don't get over to visit you everyday. You are all so talented and many have inspired me .

I am leaning now towards 1000 posts so I will wait until that number to have a celebration. I will have to think of something really special on that day.
Here is the very first collage I created way back then. I sent it to Vickie at Whispers of Inspiration. She was a BIG inspiration to me and cheered me on the whole way I was learning all about blogging and creating collages. My daughter in law Mica with Garboodles got me started in creating collage and in blogging. It has been a blessing since my retirement. It fills my days with creativity as well as making friends . I love you all.
This was my second attempt at creating collage. I still have this little guy.

How long ago did you make your first collage and how long has it been since you started blogging?

Wow..4 years of blogging. I'm moving up to my second year soon. Amazing to me the way my life has changed through blogging. I never thought I'd enjoy it and I certainly never expected to "want" to share all that I do...Love your work.

Hi Patti *hugs*
That is a lot of posts! I know what you mean about all the great people out here and the inspirations from our blogging friends. I have blogged at blogspot since Feb. 2009 and before that I was at Wordpress since May 2007. It seems I can't remember a time from blogging...*s*..

Your collages are always lovely. How special that you have taken pics of them all too. Good thing for digitals...that sure makes blogging more fun.

I haven't actually done collages...yet.
have a wonderful rest of the weekend.
