a special toast?

Somehow five years have almost whizzed by since I started blogging.  This morning I happened to notice in passing, the number 499, being how many posts I'd clocked up.  So I felt it timely to make an announcement!

Tried to locate the very first post but only got back to 2009 and then too much wading to go back "older posts" page by page to find it, so I didn't.  It doesn't really matter, but I do know that my blog has changed a lot in the past two years.

Carole's Creative Corner was given that name originally because I was dabbling with various paper-crafts mainly, some stitching projects, graphics play, oh and lots of flowers from my garden; and sharing images through this blog.  At least that's how I remember it all started.  Then I was zentangling (see label) ........until I eventually found I really wanted to spend much more time with my camera.

Blog posts now are definately focussed on whatever it is that I can get to, with the view of taking snapshots to share, and in that pursuit I get a lot of enjoyment.   Thanks to friends too, who might happen to accompany me on occasion, and suddenly find I'm not walking with them anymore!  Where is she .. they look behind and I'm only just ten steps back perhaps; lining up another pic. 

Thanks to each of you who have become friends online, and continue to pop in with some sweet and enthusiastic comments;  I really appreciate your visits to my blog; here's to the next 500?

Good for you. I say that in the sense that earlier this year I came up on my 500th post and didn't know what to do about it so I just moved on. At least you knew. So now the race is on for our 1000th post and I have a head start. Try and catch me if you can. Ha!

Happy Blog-iversary~~ I like (as a fairly new reader) learning that you've changed your blog as your interests evolve.

Ida said...

Awesome Milestone! You have a wonderful way with photographs and I've so enjoyed popping in from time to time to see them. Here's to many more!

Julie said...

Indeed, the next 500 ... it is interesting to see how our interests change over time ... mine are becoming more geometric and more historical. Lucky there is only enough headspace for 2 historical posts per week.
