Thank you! The Beginning!

I couldn't resist using one of my favorite wedding photos from this past year to begin February.
At the moment this was taken, the handsome groom was thanking his beautiful bride for being a part of his life.
Appropriate why? Because I am devoting this entire month of February to saying thank you to as many people as possible who reside in my corner of the blogiverse and who have enriched my life by being a part of it.
This is going to be a huge undertaking for me! Not only does it coincide with my annual Valentine Cookie project, but I will be posting every single day.
However, there is a big plus in posting every day - the posts will be short and sweet so I won't be sending you all screaming into the blogiverse at the sight of a ten mile long link post once a week! THIS is absolutely the longest post I will write all month.
A lot of thought and time has gone into this project - a lot of brain wracking or should I say brain wrecking! I definitely don't want to leave anyone out but I am worried I will. So many lovely people have been a part of these first two+ years I have been writing Gingerbread Snowflakes.
A couple things to note.
1. I have a Pinterest board just for this special group of people. So, there will be links in the post and links on Pinterest. New blogs will be added as the month progresses.
I hope you will visit and say hello, especially to those who are new to you.
2. When you see a little * next to a name you will know that this person has been leaving comments on my blog from the very beginning. I am especially grateful to have had their support and encouragement right from the start.

As I was researching and making preparations for the posts this month, I was overwhelmed by the amount of information and excellent content found in the crafty blogiverse that I have been privileged to enjoy.
And in some cases I realized I had never stopped to say thank you! ARGH! If it weren't for Denise at Mom in Madison, I would have never learned about Imbolc! And I love celebrating Imbolc! Thank you Denise.
Sasha, Mermaid and Margit all have become treasured friends and are collectively responsible for me learning about Valbourg and Midsummer celebrations. Only having learned of these celebrations last year, I will be incorporating them into my life and the blog this year!
Christmas in July! I love that so many of you are celebrating! I don't care so much that the stores in town have adopted it but I love that so many of you have! Without all of you that do celebrate by posting and sharing, I would not have known I was in such good company!
There are people who I don't even know like Lindsay at the Cottage Home who saved my bacon last fall while crafting with Antonio with a post for making adorable cloth pumpkins. And people I have met in real life like Lee who inspire me constantly with their crafty genius.
There are generous souls like Sandra of Three Pumpkins Little who sent me a bottle of padding compound when I left a comment asking what exactly is padding compound. And a lovely friend, Nancy, who doesn't have a blog who made me the most beautiful door chimes from hand made beads and bells just because she wanted me to know she appreciated my blog!
So much love, so much information, so much content flowing throughout the blogiverse. And this month I will devote every single day to saying Thank You.
