Six Years Blogging (& the Softie winner!)...

By PaisleyJade - Monday, April 28, 2014

Today marks 6 years since I began this journey called blogging. 

I still meet people who don't have a clue what blogging is, and I still feel slightly embarrassed when people tell me they read my blog.  Who knows why, but one thing I know for sure, it's been an amazing journey and I've met  of heaps of awesome people along the way.

When I started out in this space called PaisleyJade, my goal was to use it as a place to record family fun and try out various recipes and crafty endeavours - I've never really been that great with words and even now I occasionally get tongue-tied when talking to people and struggle to fully communicate my thoughts, yet somehow here my confidence started to grow, and through sharing my journey I've come to value this place so much.

From Mustache and Rainbow Cakes to Crochet, Grief and Faith, who knew that one little space could cover such a range of topics - and it's been good, really good.

So thanks to everyone who takes the time to visit this space!

  5. Well done Kristy on your blog's 6th birthday! I've been loving reading it since last May when yours was the first google result for a Coconut Haystacks recipe. I couldn't believe what a small world it is. We had just come back to the UK after month in NZ, mainly in Auckland where my son Stuart and his [now] wife Molly live. We hired a car in Whangerei and drove over to Baylys Beach for a few days for their wedding in Molly's home town, Dargaville.
    Molly's brother is due to become a Dad soon and I've been inspired by your blankets to crochet for the first time in maybe 20 years! Depending on where they settle the baby blanket will end up in Dargaville or Whangerei.
    [Can't promise I'll revive the blog I set up 3 years ago on blogspot though!]
