50,000 visits

WOW - I'm so amazed. In less than a year there have been close to 50,000 visits to my blog! I started this site primarily as a place to post my art and random thoughts, and I never expected it to receive such attention. I was so excited when my counter reached 100!

So, I think it's time for a little BLOG CANDY!!! Leave a comment on this post, and I'll draw a winner as soon as I see the counter roll over to 50k. The winner will receive a set of my digi created cards below - one of each card!

Don't delay - yesterday I got over 300 hits, so we should get to 50,000 sometime today! I'll be watching!

Thanks for reading everyone. I hope to continue to make this a place you want to come back to.

Sheila said...

Wowzer - that is an incredible number of visitors!! And, you have to realize that even more people are reading your posts and not actually visiting. For instance, I subscribe to your blog via RSS, so your posts are delivered to me via email and I seldom actually visit the blog itself.

lesliecrosby said...

I love your site Nona. Having met you and listened to you speak, you are as beutiful inside as you are out and I can't wait to see what you have in store for 2009. I have moved to Westport and am no longer close by so I visit a lot to keep in touch so to speak. Hope everything is going well on your adoption fund. Can't wait to meet the newest member of your family. Iona

Oh, it is at 49,990 Right now!

Nona, you are a true inspiration. a "celebrity" in the CTMH and scrabpooking/card/creating world. Your blog is "stalked" by many. Mostly, any reader can tell you are so sweet and genuine, and that comes across in your work. Here's to 100,000 visits!!!
