the big 300!

Well, I sat down to write you all a quick hello and share a couple pictures with you...when I realized this was my 300th post!!

yahoooooo
yahooooo!!!!
can it really be true!?

so, I peeked waaay back in time to revisit my very 1st post in August of 2007 and could not believe what I saw! The VERY SAME little collage family that I had taken a picture of tonight to show you!! Is that the craziest thing ever!? okay...let me explain. I had made some little shadow box collages back in 2007 and on my very 1st blog post I showed you all this one.

Last week when I was cleaning out my studio I found it and wanted to use the box for another project so I took my little family of 3 out of there and stuck them on my sewing machine. (They keep me company and I love them and I'm really itching to make some more collages...)

Isn't that the most fun coincidence!? My little blog must have been whispering to me when I took this picture tonight! These 3 are going to have quite the ego...they were in my 1st post AND 300th post!? But with a cone hat like that, don't they deserve it? :):):)

Have a bunch of things in the works and now I'll have to think up some fun way to celebrate this special occasion now as well! Stay tuned sweet friends. Thank you for sharing in my world these past 300 posts. It is such a joy to have you all in my corner!!!

xoxox...jenn

p.s. I'm so delighted to be featured on LuvHandmade.com !!
my little "shy heart" couple will be featured on their Discoveries page until 10:00 p.m. Friday night. Thank you LuvHandmade!!!

p.p.s. My super talented Aunt has opened an etsy shop! I'm so excited because she makes the most lovely jewelry and I know you will love it! Right now you'll find some of her beautiful polymer clay pendants and in the upcoming days/weeks you will DELIGHT in her beaded work...filled with sterling silver, beads, silk, swarovski and more! Go by and take a peek and save her as a favorite shop!! Thanks you guys! Feisty Broad Designs

Your shadow box collage still looks as good now as it did 300 posts ago. I'm just waiting for STJ's update and thought I'd have a look at what you are up to.
