My 5th blogiversary!

May 17, 2010 marks my 5 years of blogging... I can't believe its been that long!
So much has happened all around, but as you can see my blog looks pretty much the same... I guess I myself haven't changed much, except grew older like everyone else :p
Anyways, if you're still here, thanks so much! 
I have a good number of visitors everyday, though I only know a few special people who read my blog.
I've met some of you online ever since I was new on the internet ;)

I'll take this opportunity to acknowledge the following people who motivated and inspired me to keep this blog and my crochet happenings alive for the past five years:

Crochet Pattern Central - owned by Rachel Geller, a directory for free crochet patterns found on the web
Crochetville - a neat crochet forum (no glaring ads back then) where I first discovered a crochet community on the internet ;)
Coats Manila Bay, Inc. - esp. to Yumi Aromin and Jackie Reyes, for providing materials and resources and for publishing my designs
Ravelry - the best website ever! crochet/knitting fantasy place.
Etsy - best online shop for handmade creations straight from the artists.

To my youngest sister (who's taller and mightier than me), for inspiring me and for modeling some of my creations (and for actually wearing them)!

To my crochet buddies abroad whom I've had the good fortune to know and interact with despite the distance. I have been the recipient of their warm wishes, support and even crafty gifts and special yarns :)


Pearlin J - Knottyville

                                                       To my local crocheting buddies for patiently working on my designs 
                                                                             Bheng - All Stitch Bright and Beautiful  

                                                                                              Claire - The Artful Hooker  

                                                                                             Tin - Stannum Reloaded  


To Fatima Lasay (korakora), for sharing crochet ideas, techniques and inspiration.

To the members of Crochet in the Philippines on Ravelry, thanks all for joining the group!

To many more friends I met online...those whose blogs I follow, those who sent me gifts, those whom I swapped crochet items and yarns;

To all my blog followers, readers and visitors, especially those who take the time to leave comments;

To all those who tested my patterns and given me added inspiration and ideas;

To all those who bought my patterns, used my designs, sent me feedback;

Thank you all!!!
