It's My Blogiversary!

[If you are looking for my SOS post, please scroll down, or click here.]

I think a lot of my original bloggy pals started their blogs around the same time I did. There certainly have been a lot of blogiversaries happening in my Feedly feed the past week or so. One of my pals, Libby, celebrated SEVEN YEARS of blogging on the 18th, and I realized she was just five days before me. Can you believe I've been blathering for SEVEN YEARS?!

So I plan to copy Libby and re-post my first card. It's actually from my second post, since my first post was "um ... hello? ... tap tap ... this thing on?"

There were two cards in my post. Here's the first one:

(I was clueless in the beginning about sizing photos, so I can't really embiggen it for you and still have it in focus and viewable. But if YOU click on it, you can actually see it.)  I was already a bit twisted back then, as I used punch-outs from the SU Spiral punch (I think that's the name) for the frog's dumb-bells.

Then I went off on a tangent - a sign of things to come - and posted this one:

It's the rubber molecule (roughly) made out of the rest of the punch-outs. I can no longer find the page, but the background of the card was a copy of a school's Web site about rubber and it contained the diagram I tried to mimic. And mine is crooked. You'll notice the chemical thingies don't line up with the straight printed text. Le sigh.

Coincidentally, Libby has a chemistry background, so this is kindof perfect. :)

Many thanks for sticking with me all these years!  I'll be back soon with something NEW!

Thanks for stopping by!
