WHOA!!!!! Where did the time go???

I was scrolling down to the bottom of my blog yesterday and saw THIS:

 Ok, so big deal right???  I have had Blogoversary candy contests in the past, but get a few new followers just for the candy....but they never stick around!  It is sad, but it excites me to see the HUGE numbers of visitors for those few days! AND it excites me to give away some goodies!! I'm feeling generous again, so will think of a contest for you all!

 I thought about it for a second, and thought, "hmm, this must be year 3"......until I looked at my very first post.....2007!!!!!!!!! WHAT??????????????    FIVE YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Holy snappin'!!!! Honestly, where did the time go????? Five years I've been blogging?? That is CRAZY!!!!I'm still shaking my head!! WOW!

So, here's what I'm going to do:  IF you are a loyal follower of my blog already, leave your name in INLINKZ below.  If you are not a follower of my blog - please become a follower.


(here's a badge for your blog if you want it!! THANKS to NIKKI for making it for me - and my blog header!!! You're the BEST!!!!)

 I am going to be looking over the next 33 days to who comments the most.  I will then take the Top 10 commenters and put their names in a draw.  That person will get a GRAND PRIZE!!!!  THEN, I will take EVERYONE who put their name into Inlinkz and draw FIVE names to win more prizes!!!!!

So, I will be giving away SIX prizes - WOW!!!! Not sure the prizes yet but I guarantee they will be AWESOME!!!!!   IF I get a chance to collect goodies and take pics I will post them here!!!  This will be on top until the end of my Blogoversary so PLEASE scroll down to see my recent posts!!!  Thanks!

Hugs,
Chris

I don't comment often, so I won't win the biggie, but I do follow and stop by often!

Congrats on an amazing 5 years! Time always flies when we are having fun. I'm a daily stalker through Google Reader so I thought I should officially join your follower list. :o) I need to remember to comment more often. I know how much work goes into creating and it sure is nice to hear a kind word every now and then. :)

Hi Chris..yippeee 5 years!!! I started my blog 2008 so not far from you...it's awful when people follow for just the candy..I pop by to have a look at your brilliant creations but not always leaving you a comment. I love to see your creativity has excelled with beautiful projects, wishing you lots of blogging years ahead! Ruby x
