Happy Blogoversary to Me and Some Blog Candy for You!

Well, everyone, it's hard to believe that I've been doing this for 2 years now, but there you go! I can't say I blog everyday and there have been some dry patches, but I love being able to use this as a way to keep in touch with people and to share my scrapping stuff!

So to thank all of you that pop in here from time to time and have recently pushed my counter over 10,ooo, I have some blog candy for you! I don't have time to post a picture right now because I need to get ready for work, but I'll tell you that there's a fun Making Memories tool in there!

All you need to do to get your name in for the prize is post a comment and tell me something you like or would like to see more or less of on my blog or a comment about the good/bad of blogging in general. You have a week to do this and I'll choose a winner next Sunday, February 17th!

Cheers,
Colleen

Happy Blog Anniversary! I can spend hours (and I do) looking at altered items and different card creations. can't get enough of them!

Jan Scholl said...

how about a travelogue of where you live, work and play? I think everyone loves to see local surroundings sometimes.

Nick said...

I'm working on my first lunchpail at the moment

Congratulations for your 2 year blogging! I like your creations, both cards and scrapbooking, so I would like to see more of that in the future!

I like being able to keep up with you via your blog, since I never see you in person any more! I'm sure we'll catch up again soon.

Sarah C. said...

Happy blogoversary, Colleen! I enjoy reading your blog & checking out your layouts. Definitely keep sharing those layouts and cards. Such wonderful designs. And inspiring. :)

Ana said...

WOW Congratulations! I just started my own blog in January and I love how I can get in touch with so many different people from around the world. I love to get inspiration and ideas from what everyone else is doing!!

Something I really enjoy is how you can link people to different blogs from your own, and spread the love in that way!

Keep posting layouts and projects, since they are always a great inspiration!!

Hi Colleen!

Congratulations on the 2nd anniversary of "Random Pondering"s!!!

I love the stories about the boys (especially the transcripts of your conversations with Kyle!) and I would say, in opposition to the one comment earlier, that I would hate to see you go away from that personal "chit chat". I think it is an important part in understanding from where stems your inspiration and creativity.

I love keeping up with your life from far away. I also love seeing all the ways in which you express your creativity. I am filing so much of that away for when I can finally get seriously back into scrapbooking again!!!!

Take care!

Darlene said...

I pop in about once a week to see what you have been up too. One of my favs of your post was the album cover you designed. I loved the idea and the imagination to create it. As a mother of a want to be rock star--it gave me lots of ideas. darlene

NicoleL said...

I just enjoy getting to know a bit more about what you're like. I also get inspiration from your layouts, though I scrap mostly 8.5 x 11 size. And I love goodies!!

Patty W said...

2yrs..that is a long time! Congrats!

I like seeing how to do cards from start to finish..techniques, tips.. etc...

Wishing you continued success

traci said...

Happy Blogoversary to you!! I definetely love to read your blog when I can...and also add to my own. However, it is hard to remember to do in the hectic life we have. I just like to read up on other people to feel connected to everyone around the world, and to realize that a lot of people are just like me or are waay different and I have a lot to be thankful for. It's given me a new perspcetive...cheers!

Nathalie said...

Congrats on your 2 year anniversary! That is quite an accomplishment! I like the way you blog showing us your creations and linking us to what you have used and where you got your inspiration... That is what I look for the most in blogs... so keep up the good work!

Khei de Dios said...

I'd love more pages, cards or altered from you. You are an inspiration. I'd link you up so my e-group could see and be inspired by your works.

kerry said...

Hi! I like looking at your scrapbooking pages, but I REALLY like it when you post cards. Probably because I am primarily a card maker and often need inspiration.

I am a first time visitor and I loved reading your blog..... WOW! 2 years blogging, now that's really impressive... I am having an absolute horrible time becoming motivated to update my blog... I don't create much nor do I go anyway to have something fun to talk about. In fact, the sad truth is that My life is SO boring! Anyways, I do love reading about everyone else's life and what an awesome giveaway!

Anita said...

Congratulations on your blogaversary! I love reading your blog to find out what's going on in your life if/when I don't get to talk to you. I love looking at your scrapbooking for inspiration and I also like the family pictures that you put in your blog.

nettystamps said...

I love scrapbooking blogs...I use them for inspiration when I hit a bump in the road of creativity! So I can't say that there is anything I would want to see less of...and if you would just keep doing what you are doing there really isn't need for more! I love what bloggers do and appreciate their time and effort. Kudos to you! :)
Thanks for the chance!
