Happy Blogger-versary To Me!

I TOTALLY just realized that today marks the day I began blogging---2 years ago. So, YAY! I didn't even know what a blog was 2 years ago. I LOVE BLOGGING!!!! Oh, quick funny story: My 86 year old grandma was talking about my blog the other day. She wanted me to set up my blog on her computer so she could easily access it. But, instead of saying "blog", she called it a "blob". HAHAHAHAHA! That rocks.
I wanted to get all cheesy & sentimental here too. THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH to all my readers & followers & fans, for reading.....& following.....&....fanning. (?) I get seriously giddy every time I get comments. The comments are the heart of my blog---the heart of ANY blog, really. And I do get sad puppy dog face if things are quiet around WhiMSy love land. For reals. So, say stuff. It makes me HAPPY! And I'm so blown away at all the nice emails I get from my blog readers with such encouraging & lovely things to say. So, thank you, thank you, thank you.

And I half thought of this next idea & half copied from Pampering Beki's blog: What do you love about this ole blog of mine? What would you like to see more of? What do you want to know about ME? Ask me anything. What is it you want to know? Leave a comment & say whatever--as long as it's nice. This is your chance to let me know your opinions & thoughts. (All of a sudden I got really nervous...)

*I call the picture up top "Warhol meets WhiMSy". Find out how to create this, & other effects, HERE.

  1. Happy Bloggerversary!! Two years is a big accomplishment!

    I really enjoy reading your blog, it's always so upbeat and fresh! I'd say it's kinda Whimsy meets Funky Fresh! Haha!

    As for a question - What's your favorite thing to create and what's your most popular (among other people) thing you've created?

    That picture looks great with you in it! Love it!

    I don't know that I'd change anything about your blog. It's the perfect balance between whimsy and love! :)

  4. Thanks for your blog. I have your owlie at work, I loved it so much on our Xmas tree that I took it work to cheer me up. I would love to see more colors/holidays/seasons for your owlie. I am wondering what made you start your etsy business and your blog. Have you always been this creative/creative? What is your favorite thing you have created/crafted?

  7. woot woot! Congrats on your bloggerversary! :) I love your projects and your tutes- always so easy to do! I also appreciate all of the pictures of everyday stuff- very cool and it makes me want to do it myself more. Your blog is usually the first one I read in the morning while eating my Frosted Mini Wheats. :)

  9. i've been lurking for quite a while... congrats on 2 years! Love the blog & shop... i've always wondered how you find time in your day to do "it all", esp w/ the wee ones. i have always hoped you sometimes take photos, write your blog, etc days in advance & then just choose a time to upload them. this way i feel better at my inability to keep up with your pace. don't you ever just chill, feet up, trashy tv blaring, glass of wine AND do absolutely NOTHING for a few hours?
    just asking...
    shadow
    ps i'll try commenting (aka leavin' some luv) more in the future

  10. Way to go Nikki ~ a most happy blog-iversary to you crafty lady! I thoroughly enjoy reading DAILY, so one of my favorite parts is how frequently you update ~ people who don't make me cranky, it's not pretty really, I SO judge! I think my very favorite thing is your spunky 'tude though, it's inspiring and invigorating in the early morning!;)Encourages me to get going. Question: How do you always jump so high? Trampoline? Oh, and I can't forget the tunes ~ my son(7) always says, "ooh, that's my favorite song!", when the site opens! Thanks, keep it comin'!

  11. Happy 2 years! So glad I got to meet you through blog land (and in person of course). You have totally brought out my crafty side and I LOVE the energy in your blogs...it makes me want to try all of your new craftiness!

    soooo...question time??? I was wondering when you first discovered your crafty side...did you go to school for art?? or figure out your were a crafty genius after you had kiddos??

  14. I love your blog, I am so glad I found it and your etsy shop. I love reading it because it is always so cheerful. I tend to be a glass half empty type sometimes, and this blog always makes me feel better. I like that you blog pretty much every day now and I love seeing the pictures of the things you do. You have a great eye for photography. Keep up the good work!

  16. Nikki - *warning this may be long*
    I have never left a comment...why I dont know! Silly me. I pretty much look on every dayish. I started when Scott asked Keith something about your blog and traffic..and I saw it, and I thought it was so cute! I check it out for the tutes! Im a big fan of tutes :) Me and my 3 wee ones are bored quite often but I have had so many lovely ideas from here! For example...I made the mini pie bottle caps and made them into magnets because I had to cover up the jack daniels word on the other side. hehehe

    So keep up the blogging and keep the crafty ideas rollin'! And had u not moved so far away Im sure we would have been great crafting friends, and our little girls would have had sooo much fun together! Anywayz...happy anniversary to you!

  17. Happy Blogiversary!!

    First of all, know this- your blog is one of only four that I get sent to my email. Because it's BO -blogland Original (not to be confused with the GO -gangster Original popular with today's youth). Somehow just reading it makes me feel like I've done something crafty and fun. My girls and I have tried a recipe, done a craft, and joined a project seen on your blog. And we have a to-do list that stretches forever. ;) Keep up the good, happy Whimsy Love fun- here's to another two years... at LEAST!!

  18. I'm singing, can you hear me? "Happy blogiversary, happy blogiversary, happy blogiversary, happy blogiversary, happy, happy, happy, happy..." Ok, I'm stopping now. My singing is not that pretty, but it's heartfelt!

    I wish I could remember how I found you in wwwdom. But I do remember when I came across your blog I felt like I had found a friend. The freckles, the spunk, the crafty, MOPS. Then I found the AZ connection. And I said to myself, "Self, this chickie is a younger version of you, but sassier."

    I love your blog because
    it's fun
    it's real
    it's informative
    it's cute
    it's playful

    Keep up the good work!

  19. Happy Bloggerversary!

    I like your blog because it's creative, crafty, kooky and linkerific. That's just a few reasons.

    Plus, it's just nice to run into a blogger with a brain that seems to be a little like your own.

    Whimsy. Mimsy. ^_^
