Imagine my surprise this morning when...




I poured myself a cup of coffee....


signed onto my computer....


and found 111 followers !

When I started this little blog back in March 2010, as a tribute to my mother, I had no idea anyone would even be interested. Today I hit 111 followers - or - new friends as I like to call them. Well, that's not exactly accurate...I guess I can't count my best bud Debbie, Mr. Fisherman or our daughter in the count of new friends. But, I can definitely count the other 108. You see - I am not one to beg for followers. We have all seen them. You follow me and I will follow you... or if you follow me you can win a really cool prize.
What's the point? Are they really interested in your posts?
 I have kept this little blog a secret from most of my family and friends.
Why?
 Because I make gifts for many of them and I don't want them peeking before it's time.
So now you see why I am so excited?
I have 108 new friends !
So, thank you my friends, for not only following me, but taking the time to read and comment on my posts - all the while, ignoring all my grammar and punctuation errors. My mother would be so proud; not of my grammar and punctuation errors, of course, but maybe...
just maybe...
 I too, have been able to inspire someone along the way.

Thanks again to all my wonderful new friends!
YOU are MY inspiration.

Hello, Lucy,
Congrats on all your followers.
I totally agree with you about the "you follow me and I'll follow you" thing. I hope people choose to follow me because they find something in my blog that makes them want to. I,too, am appreciative of all my followers.

Congrats!
I'm happy that you follow me, as I enjoy following you, even if I don't get to comment very often!
I know I started my blog as a whim, to keep my family up to date, and hopefully show off some changes in our next house. I email my family updates, I'm not even sure they realize what a 'follower' is! LOL

I remember being shocked my neighbor became a follower, and although I have only three (which is okay with me), I like all three of them! :)

Hi! I'm the 111th follower, as of yesterday afternoon. I saw a link to one of your tutorials and loved it! So of course I had to stay and poke around for a bit. I love all your fun ideas! Looking forward to reading in the future. :-)
