Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

It's my blogaversary - it's my blogaversary - it's my blogaversary; am I haaaappy?!!!  YESSIREEE!!!!

I'm back and thank you all for being so patient and waiting!!!  And, so as not to forget, thank you all for visiting me earlier here or at Sheila's for my DT project.  I appreciated all the comments and, as always, your support!!!

Wow, it's been quite a year, and so much thanks goes to all of you for being here for me.  In honor of my first year as a blogger and to celebrate, I have something I'd like to giveaway -- a little bit of this and a little bit of that!!!

It has been such a pleasure making such wonderful new friends, and I so look forward to another year of making more new friends, crafting, being inspired and all the wonderful things that we bloggers share with each other.  It's so amazing the bond we all share and are committed to!  Mere words cannot do justice!

Because Cute and Some made it from day one to today has been because of all of you -- followers and visitors alike.  Without all of you collectively, I probably wouldn't still be here with my hopes and wishes to continue.  Honestly, I never expected to have more than 45,000 visits/hits  in one year when I began this blog!!!  Therefore, this giveaway is open to everyone!  No restrictions!!!

Like I said, the candy being offered for giveaway is a hodge-podge of  craft items -- not much,  but a little something to let you know I appreciate you and thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart for being the beautiful collection of people that you are. Over the year, you have entertained me, comforted me, lifted me, inspired me, and on an occassion or so even scolded me.  I couldn't have asked for better blog friends than what you've all become to me.  I wish I could do so much more but here's the candy I have to offer:

To win, please 1eave me a comment on this or any post AND include the phrase "a little bit of this, a little bit of that" (THIS IS A MUST).  I will compile a list of everyone who comments to me using this phrase and assign a number to each participate.  Once the list is compiled I'll post the participants and their numbers, and post the date I will use Random Generator to select the winner.  All comments must be in by 5 p.m. on this Sunday, January 9;  at that time, no more participants will be accepted/eligible as I will begin the list to have ready to post on Monday, January  10.

To all my visiting friends, I'd love to meet you all too!!!  I love company -- and I don't bite!!!  LOL!

Good luck to everyone!!!  Now get those comments coming!!!

I'll be back, so...  I'll be seeing you!

OOOH, am I really the first to wish you a Happy Anniversary?!? HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!! Wow over 45,000 hits. That is fantastic. Your candy looks really yummy; not just 'a little bit of this, a little bit of that.'

Audrey! Happy Blogaversary! I love your little saying "a little bit of this, a little bit of that"!

I just noticed that your dogs name is Buster and he looks like a shitzu. My husband and I had a Shitzu named Buster! He lived for almost 17 years and he was a sweetheart! He was brown and white and we miss him very much! Give your little buster a hug from me.
