10 Year Happy Quilting Blogiversary Celebration!!!!!

Today is the big day!!!  We have been having Throwback Thursday's for a year leading up to this Thursday ;)  And I am just so excited!!!!   Today is my 10 Year Blogiversary!!!!    Can you believe it, I have been writting Happy Quilting for 10 YEARS, that is an entire decade of blogging!!!!



I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am for Happy Quilting!!!!  I never would have dreamed when I started this little quilting blog that it would open so many doors to so many opportunities and most importantly, so many friends!!!!    I can not believe how Happy Quilting has grown over the 10 years and how I have grown along with it.   I could go on and on about how much I have been able to accomplish from simply starting a blog . . . but today I just really want to thank each of you!!!!

Happy Quilting would not be the space it is without each of you!!!  I thank you for your comments, your emails, your pictures, your encouragement, and your friendship :)   I love that this blog has allowed me to meet so many amazing friends that share my passion for quilting!!!   And I just want to say Thank you again and again and again ;)

And so let's do that with a Giveaway Celebration!!!  I have so many friends joining in with me today to celebrate 10 Years of Happy Quilting and I am so grateful to them for sponsoring prizes for this occasion!!!!   We are going to do this in the same style as Terrific Tuesday Giveaway Day ;)    You can scroll through all the giveaways and then the instructions to enter the giveaways are at the end!!!
