Karla ~ 5 Years - WoW!! I'm sure it seems like that time has flown by. I didn't know you and Beth started blogging at the same time. As I commented to her, you guys just have the most fun together. Let me know if I win, I'll send you my address. Better yet I'll just come pick it up.

Well, happy blogaversiary!!! What fun, creating valentines with Sugarwings and your friends!



Happy 5th Blog Birthday!!!
Looks like you and "sugarwings" had some great fun making Valentines. My Grand made a couple yesterday after school.
Thank you for having a giveaway and please drop my name into the hat! Thanks!


Oh, how fun. Thank you for the heart-shaped song! I'm so glad you all had a fun Valentine-making party. I am having so much fun with Valentine's Day that I don't want to stop. (Sort of like Christmas was this past year!)


How fun! Count me in. Congrats on your milestone.


Just read all the comments so far, no one has commented on the music and what tune it really is.
Hand-made Valentines are the BEST. No one is ever too young or too old to start the tradition. You're one creative gal.

Happy blogaversary and
fer sure
Happy Valentine's Day


Thanks for inspiring us, I can always count on your blog to do so. You rock Girl....

It's a very hard job to keep up a blog. I've abandoned mine right now. Life got too crazy to make time for it, so I'm super impressed that you've regularly posted for five years. That's quite an accomplishment.

Wendy McDonagh-Valentine

Your granddaughter is so very lucky to have you!! I have fond memories of spending time with my grandmother and even my great grandmother and those are something that I will always cherish. You are making a multitude of memories!! : )

I enjoy blogging too much to stop. I think that if I never had another reader, Id still write it for myself. Of course, I talk out loud and sing to myself too. Why not write to myself?
