Blog Celebration & Tips

Imagine my excitement to check the blog this morning and see that My Sister's Cottage now has 100 Followers...I feel as if I have 100 new "girlfriends"!  Thanks to each and every one of you for taking a little time each day to share my world and for inviting me, through your  amazing blogs, to share yours. You are all so talented, creative and supportive. The challenge of getting through these past past few months without my best friend, my sister Nancy, has been eased a bit by knowing that others care and that there are still things in life to look forward to. Nancy would have loved all of you guys!

I just found a nifty site that you might like to try. It's at You simply download the program, upload your favorite photos, and click a shape or instantly creates a shape collage like the one I used above. You can use as few or as many photos as you like and then save the finished collage to add to your blog or print for crafts. In the "100" collage above, I used photos from my blog; in the "heart" shape below, I used photos of some of Nancy's collections. This could be a lot of fun!
My last post was about Sue's new blog and I already have another new blog to tell you about...and this one is just plain CUTE! My two little grandsons, Taka and Toshi, with a little help from their Dad, decided to start their own blog. Taka is 7 and Toshi is almost 4 so they may be the youngest bloggers yet. Their first entry is called "What We Do' and you can find it here. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't soon have 100 Followers too...they're pretty creative!

Happy Blogging everybody!
