May 1, 2006 was my very first blog post. And here I am 10 years and 1024 posts later! I can hardly believe it. It’s time to celebrate, don’t you think?

For the month of May I’m hosting a Cupcake Party here on the blog, since it was that renowned felted wool cupcake pincushion that really “started it all” for me. All month we’ll be celebrating with special guest posts, projects, recipes and give-aways. Yay!

Let’s start by taking a trip down memory lane!

This was what my website homepage looked like when my blog began. Sweet and simple! Oh 2006, you were so young and naive. And so was I, haha.

Here we are in late 2007 after my book, Warm Fuzzies came out. I had been on the Martha Stewart show earlier that year. (You can still watch the video of my segment here!) What a wild, amazing time! And it all began with these crazy cupcakes. Who knew? I sure didn’t.

Here we are in 2009 when I designed and self-produced my first fabric collection and my second book, Sewing Green was published.

Over the years there’s been several re-designs of my site, logo, tagline, colors and blog as my business started, grew, and evolved. And I’m sure there will be nothing but more change in the future! (Special thanks to my husband taking on the website design portion of my business…and so much more!)

Thanks for being part of my journey. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating this month with the Cupcake Party! Stay tuned for more this week!
