5 Years, 3 Blogs and 600 posts...

Yes it's true, it's five years since my sisters inspired me to start blogging. I started
Somebody's Mum
which became
Quilting Mum

and along the way...
Mrs Incredible's Journey
which became
Learning to Live an Authentic Life

and then they both closed and now I have
600 Posts
Works in Progress

It's been a very interesting five years.
In those immortal words...

It was the best of times
It was the worst of times

But we've survived,
not only survived
but grown
and developed!

Later this week to celebrate this amazing journey
and all the incredible people I've met
I'm giving away a quilt.
Yes I am!
I just need to sew the binding on
and take some pics
and you'll all be able to put your name down
for a try at winning it!

How exciting is that?

do you like these sneaky peaks??


  1. wow 5years, congrats!...sneaky pics look good :)

  2. Congratulations, that's some commitment!

    I love reading your blog, it's quite original,
    and always inspiring me, especially with vintage sheets!

  4. 5 years! I always look forward to your posts because you're very real - and that's a good thing in blogland. I bet you look back at all those 600 posts and see how much you've achieved. I like that you've included how your blog has evolved through your name changes - the one I'm relating to most is Learning to Live an Authentic Life.
