A Million Thanks



You may have seen that I reached 4,000 followers on Instagram this week (there's a giveaway that ends tonight - make sure you check it out!).

Well, the celebration continues - also this week, MASKerade's views hit 1,000,000!

Wow! When I started bloggin way back in 2012, I watched the view numbers, and followers very closely. Some of my first followers are some of my best stamping friends all these years later, and that's what really counts!

To celebrate, I'm having another giveaway right here. (and keep watching, because I'm getting close to 1,000 followers on my YouTube channel - yet another reason to celebrate!)

Comment below and 5 of you (randomly-drawn) will receive 2 Catherine Pooler inks of your choice. I will announce the 5 winners on Monday, March 5.

Congratulations Ardyth, the card is gorgeous and the back panel is such an interesting touch. I Remember checking your initial posts when I started following you. When I saw you have been crafting for so long.. it gave me encouragement to keep going.. and motivation to become like you.. in few years too. You are a guru to me and your quick videos are the cherry on the cake, as people like me get to see how you make your masterpieces. Thank you for your constant encouragement and love, am glad to have found you!

Time flies when you are having fun! I'm not sure how long I have subscribed to MASKerade or your YouTube, but I know it was immediately after being introduced to your style, somewhere along the way. Instagram is next. You are an inspiration to all of those THOUSANDS of followers! Congratulations!

bev p said...

Way to go!! Congratulations on your numbers. I have enough trouble following people on one or two sites...there's no way I could leave the computer if I faithfully followed everyone I like everywhere they post! I couldn't keep up with Facebook when I only had 10 friends!!! I don't know how you all do all you do, but I am beyond grateful for what I have learned along the way. Crafty folks in general, and paper people in particular, are the most generoous and wonderful people out there! Thanks for being one of them.

Tracey Magner said...

Lindar C said...

Congratulations! I follow you on YouTube. I like that your videos are short and I can re-watch if needed. I also like that left handed craftiness :)
