It's Candy time...we have some treats for you!!

Well my friends it's time to celebrate and be thankful....and there are so many things we need to celebrate and give thanks for.

But today, we want to celebrate our First blogiversary!! Yay!! Woohoo!! OMG!! I can hardly believe it, about a year ago my dear friend Kathya introduced me to the world of card making and oh boy, I fell in love immediately.  Kathya taught me everything she knew, she talked about the papers, the embellishments, the stamps, the Copics, etc. etc. She also told me her idea of having our own blog to showcase our creations and I couldn't wait a minute. Being a technical person I started researching and learning everything about creating a blog. On October 2011, we started this journey, the journey of card making, crafting, learning new techniques, meeting new friends and we have had a blast!! The world as I knew it before, no longer exists, it is a smaller world, we have friends all over the world and they are just a blog away. 

So, it is time to celebrate and give thanks to all of you for being part of our world, for sharing your gorgeous creations, for your beautiful comments and your support.  Also, for all the happiness and excitement you have brought to our life.   Hugs, Ivonne

Kathya here:  Our First blogiversary! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since Ivonne called me to say: “Go ahead and check it out, we have a blog”. After the shock, I had to run and grab a pen and paper to sit down and write the instructions on how I was going to do my first post. I was so excited! But nothing prepared me for how my world was about to change. See, in the last couple of years my life has become more of a “home to work to home” kind with my son’s school activities thrown in the mix.

So Ivonne creating this blog has opened me up to a whole new experience in which I now get to share with people that I would’ve never (in a million years) thought of sharing. People from places that I’ve only seen on my TV shows or read in books. These people (you) have now become a part of my life. I read about your life, worry if you go MIA, look forward to send get well wishes your way or congratulate you on joyful occasions, while also commenting on your beautiful cards.
I don’t think this journey would’ve been possible or even as incredibly wonderful without my best friend. To my soul sister Ivonne: Thank you for your technical help and all you do for our blog. For being here when I can’t, for everything you do.
And thanks to all our followers for being with us this first year. Your comments are the motivation that keeps us going! Kathya
