Well, it's been one year since I started Emerging Em!
I can't believe it's been that long. My main inspiration for blogging came from my dear friend Mandy of Mandipidy fame, who was my first follower. Her blog, then called Mandy's Yellow Corner, was so cute that I wanted to create my own blog for sharing the things I love to make. She helped me through the (somewhat overwhelming) beginning stages of creating a blog, and I am forever thankful for that.
Here's my first post about my first forays into blogging and my first project.
About a week later, I opened my Etsy shop, and my rosette hairpins have become my most popular item!
I am so thankful for the sweet blog friends that I have made over this past year. You all have been so supportive and encouraging! My little blog has grown from one follower to over 80 followers, and I hope it continues to grow. My blog has now become a place to share not only my crafts but my adventures in life as well!
Thanks for reading along as I found my incredible boyfriend (or rather he found me)...
... and ran a half marathon...
...and graduated with my Master of Music degree.
