We’re a little late in announcing this, but this month we’re celebrating 13 years of my barking about our love of crafts and handmade cards.

Yep. We like to mark it on my favorite huMAN’s birthday, but I’m sure it was a few days before that.

I haven’t been able to dig up that first year, but I thought you’d get a kick out of how the site looked at different stages – especially because we’re about to update it again.

Here’s a picture from March 2007. Now, you can’t see all the pictures, but you get the gist of it. I do know this was the first header for my blog. Ann did almost all of my pictures. I feel safer when she’s holding the camera.

March 2006 was a big year for us. Ann and my favorite huMAN went on there first Stampin’ Up! cruise to the Mexican Riviera. And the next year was to the Panama Canal.

The funny thing was that this was officially a website made to LOOK like a blog!

Then we’ll move onto her first official blog on Typepad. Did you know that Ann does most of the graphics like this header. We both love the picture on the right. We call that our wedding picture. I was such a “Dapper Dan back then.

We’re thinking that about 2013 or 2014, we moved to where we are now. And we want to stay here. Ann’s done most of the graphics so far, but we’re calling in the professionals this time!

I personally love this photo that was taken back in the day. But Ann’s fairly fond of this one.

I know we have one of me operating a typewriter somewhere. But this zip line in Haiti with Stampin’ Up! was just one of the many incentive trips I helped her work for. (It’s the longest one that goes over water.)
