1, 2, 3, FOUR!

It passed me by.
And I've been a bit too caught up with other things to make any formal mention of it.
Until now...
 February 25th marked year 4 of this blog.

I feel so proud of this little blog. Time to brag now. (Hey, I never get to! I'm allowed, just this once....)
I've had over 1/2 million hits. I have thousands of visits each month. I have hundreds of fans. (Though most of you keep really quiet, I still love you.)

Thanks to all my readers. You make this girl feel important. And thanks to those who have written me lovely, encouraging emails & messages. You make this girl feel extra special with sprinkles on top. And thanks to those who comment. You make this girl feel like doing cartwheels.

My first blog post (found HERE) was fun to look back on. I dreamed of a space to call my own. "Someday..." I had said. Well, this year, I have my own space. It's mine! Mine! Mine! I don't have to share one square inch! No office-slash-art studio-slash-library-slash-etc. No slashes anymore!! It's simply my creative space. And I love it! So, yeah, I did celebrate with a bit of sparkling cider & Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. It was the appropriate thing to do.

And on top of ALL that....exactly 4 years ago (from today) I opened up my Etsy shop, WhiMSy love.
To celebrate, I'm having a sale! Through Saturday March 19th, everything in the shop is 40% off!
When chekcing out, just mention the coupon code 4FUNYEARS to receive the discount!
Look for new Spring Vintage Button Rings to arrive during the sale too!!


  1. Congrats on 4 fabulous and informative years! Yes, I'm one of the quiet readers, but I love keeping up with you through your delightful posts.
    If you EVER decide to allow ads on your blog---please, please, please, consider me!

    Here's to 40 more years of brilliant blogging by Nikki!

  2. Happy Anniversary.

  3. Congratulations.....four years of blogging is a real achievement. Good luck with your new store too. :-)

  4. Wow, 4 years! The blog and the etsy shop. I didn't even know about etsy 4 years ago... Have you done a blog entry *every day* since the beginning? I don't know how you do it... taking pictures, doing the blog everyday, with the kids and the hubby and all the rest you do. I think you're Super Woman in disguise. :)

  5. HAPPY BDAY!!!!! Always fun to come back!


  6. Happy Bloggiversary!!

    And.... 4 years of blog awesomeness IS something worth bragging about!! : )
