blogaversary celebration | big picture classes giveaway

My very first blog post was June 15, 2010. I still have the art project, it's still in the laundry room, but now I scrap in Zach's former bedroom. And now, 693 posts...1257 followers...6583 comments and over 825,000 page views later, I'm still having fun sharing my creative projects. Thanks for your visits, thanks for your comments and thank you very much for the friendships.


Perfect time for a little celebration, I think! All this week, there will be giveaways and surprises for you...well, Tuesday is a blog hop with The Twinery and My Little Shoebox so those goodies are awarded by TT and MLS and is open to everyone who comments for the hop according to the hop guidelines.

Today, I'm guest blogger at Big Picture Classes, which will be up later today, and I'm excited about the new class I'm enrolled in.

If you want to connect and learn in a creative environment online you've found the right place. The Big Picture Classes community of instructors and members mingle in custom classrooms uniquely designed to deliver expert guidance and engaging ideas so that you can more fully explore your creativity. 
At BPC, you'll find a myriad of super convenient self-paced classes as well as interactive multi-week workshops on topics ranging from scrapbooking to photography, journaling to personal well-being—but it is the light-hearted and liberating philosophy behind our education that sets us apart and enables you to find your muse, follow it and immerse yourself in personal expression.
You can even sign up for free classes.

  2. Kidding Around 3 most interests me. My eldest (almost 5) loves to craft and has really been showing an interest in scrapbooking, and I think it would be a fun way to get her involved.
