As you can see from the title, this is a very special blog hop to which we're welcoming you. It's our 3rd Anniversary. As blog hops go, that's quite a milestone because many don't last as long. Not only has ours lasted these three years, but it has thrived. New people have joined in along the way and we've also attracted a nice, large group of followers. Life is good!
For this special blog hop, we were lucky enough to have the original group from our first post on July 25th, 2013. You can see the original hop if you click HERE. Jean Fitch founded the blog hop but was unable to continue after the first one and so I took over. Luckily Jean comes back frequently to hop with us and is also taking part in this celebration.
Some of the names may have changed. You can see from the first hop, that our banner has changed. But at the heart of it, the blog hop has continued to be the same, showing off our love of crafting and all things Stampin' Up!
As always, our Blog Hop runs in a circular fashion. No matter where in the list of participants you begin, inevitably you'll wind up in the exact same place again if you keep going to the "next" blog. It works the same way whether you conform to the usual forward movement through the blog posts or if you're a rebel and work your way through in reverse order.
For this hop we have twelve awesome participants beginning with the original "pioneers" in the order in which they appeared for the first blog hop. Following them are a few of the people we've added over the years. Expect to be dazzled!
And now, without further ado, here is our list of participants and their order of appearance. Just click on the name and you'll arrive at their blog post within seconds.
We hope you enjoy checking out everyone's post and we'd love for you to leave a comment. Comments are the icing on the cake for those of us sharing our posts.
