A Mermaid's Crafts 5 Year Blogaversary!!


I can't believe it, but today is my 5 Year Blogaversary!! Wow!! My gosh, the years have flown by so quickly. I really don't know where they went. What a journey it's been!! I've been fortunate to design for some amazing companies and challenge blogs over the years, and guest design for several more. I've been blessed to meet some incredible people whom I'll be friends with for life. I've been inspired by all of you to try new styles and techniques to expand my crafty horizons. And I am so very thankful for each and every one of you :)

I don't have as much time for blogging as I used to, and my posts are fewer and far between. Lately, I've not had much time for Facebook either and I apologize. But I want to thank you all and show my appreciation for your encouragement, sweet comments, and continued support.

I've pulled together a few of my favorite things to share with one of you including items from my current design teams: gorgeous crinkle ribbon from DL.ART; a Spring has Sprung die from Die-Versions; and my favorite die, one I use on most every project...a Memory Box Chloe die from Scrapy Land. I'm sure I'll have more items to add as well :)

I'm not going to make you jump through a bunch of hoops to be eligible and I will ship anywhere in the world. All you have to do is:
  1. Be a follower of my blog
  2. Post the giveaway picture on your sidebar (if you have a blog). I'd appreciate it if you shared it on social media, but that's not a requirement.
  3. Enter your name in the linky below.
That's it!! The giveaway will run for a month and I'll use Random.org to choose a winner soon after.

Thank you for taking this journey with me and thanks again for your amazing support over the past five years!! Big hugs :)

Congrats on 5 yrs and I think I've had my blog since Jul 2011 so it is almost 5 yrs for me as well. You've inspired me in your creations. I still have the card you made on Cricut with the campfire scene & mailed it to me when I said I liked it. I think I'll do a giveaway in Jul when my 5 yr blog anniv comes up. I posted the giveaway image on my blog sidebar below my # followers & above my Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow photos. Have a BEE-utiful day!

Sara Barker said...

Wow, Lisa! I can't believe you have been blogging 5 years! I've known you for such a short time, but I can say you are one of the most talented and sweetest bloggers! I have a hard time believing you don't have much time for blogging, because I can't keep up with all your latest creations--must blame that on computer problems. I finally have a computer but the internet is slower than molasses on a cold winter day. Big congratulations, my friend! How generous you are to celebrate with this amazing gift! May you enjoy many more years of crafting and blogging. We are all blessed by yo!ur lovely work
