Happy Blogiversary to All Things Paper!

I can hardly believe it, but it's time to wish a big happy birthday to this blog... All Things Paper is five years old today!

Quilled double hearts necklace
Fortunately there's never a shortage of incredibly talented paper artists and crafters to feature and I still get just as much of a thrill when it's time to hit the Publish button as I did in 2009.

I truly <3 each and every one of you paper aficionados for your creativity and visits, and as a way of expressing my thanks, was inspired to design this Two Hearts as One necklace.

So let's celebrate! I'm dreaming of a huge, real-life party where we can gather to share our enthusiasm for paper... can you imagine the decorations we would make? Reality check - it's a virtual party, but I do have something very real to offer. Because birthdays and presents go hand in hand, I'll be wrapping up everything you see in these photos to send to one of you.

Blogiversary giveaway gifts

There are five gifts - one for each year of blogging - including an autographed copy of Creative Paper Quilling and the Spring 2014 issue of CardMaker Magazine that features a section on quilling. The other three are things I personally made... an Asian-inspired floral card from Creative Paper Quilling, a fringed flower card as seen in CardMaker, and the quilled paper heart necklace on an 18 inch silver chain, packaged in a special box.
