Counting Down....Two

This has been an amazing ride, and I'm counting down, not because I'm excited for the end, but because it has been such a big event that is nearly over. (Kind of like the letters W X Y and Z are going to be in April!)

The activity on and about Celery Tree has been super helpful in getting the bugs out, and I appreciate everyone's patience. There were some issues with registration vs. joining, with ebook purchases, with automatic emails. Our team has been hard at work behind the scenes getting it all sorted, and things are now running smoothly and coming together in a fabulous way.

We might just be ready to take on the world. *grins*  But how pleasant to first introduce to my friends. Much less scary to get an email from a friend saying, "Hey, what about this?" So thank you for coming to my party!

Today Nicki Elson, the fabulous 80's girl, posts about Celery Tree. She has posted on the Forum and would love to get some discussion going there, so please stop by Nicki's blog, and then pop over to the Celery Tree Forum!

And gazillions of thanks and creamy cupcakes to all of you who have participated in any way in helping to make the Celery Tree big blog tour a success!!


  1. Hey all! Nicki's post isn't up yet but will be soon.

  2. Woohoo! It's so exciting to see this going so well. =D

  3. Glad your project is going so well! I don't know much about it, so I'm off to research :)

  4. Yay! Onwards and so upwards!! Take care

  5. Glad it's been a success! Yeah, I tried to register when it opened but it only gave an option for membership. I'll go back and try again.

  6. I dream of the day my book will be sold in your online store. :-)

  7. Tracy Jo, Best comment of the day! It's going up on our Facebook page.

    Alex, Let me know if you have any problems registering. I believe all those issues have since been fixed.

  8. I haven't been online much in the past 6 months (except, of course, for the occasional quick pop-in on The Twitter), so I have no idea what the celery tree is, but i like the name and picture. :) I promise to check it out soon.

    Have a lovely weekend,

  9. yep, it's best to get the kinks out among friends. Great to hear the tour has been a success.

  10. Great blog! Love the cupcakes--and the journey.

  11. Hi Karen .. Celery tree - the strong root of growth .. it's a great idea .. cheers Hilary

  12. Glad you're experiencing so much success! I just found you here. Thanks for the cupcakes and I read on your sidebar that you made cookies too, so I'll be sticking around! I'm really looking forward to doing A-Z again this year. Can't wait! :)
