Yee, ditty, haw, my friends.....we did it!!! It seems like it was a long time in coming, but good things are worth waiting for. A heart felt thanks to all members for taking the plunge and pushing that scary thing called the "join junkers like you" tab. I am both honored and delighted to be part of such a talented online community. I have had the pleasure of meeting some of you in person and look forward to meeting many more of you in the years to come.

A great big thank you also goes out to the fabulously creative JMS contributors, both past and present. I could not have achieved this goal without you. You're time, support, and talent are so greatly appreciated. Lani Banani and Jimbo...what can I say? You both have supplied the support, encouragement, and strength for me to carry on through good and bad times....and you didn't  provide the support for your own personal happily did it for the good of the greater junking cause.

With all of that said, I'm going to ask for your help. Running a major website is not free. Just like printed magazines we have people producing stories, editing, creating graphic design, monitoring, administering... etc. In order for the website to grow and improve it needs water and sunlight. There are many ways of reaching the improvement and growth goal. First and foremost we need to increase membership. 10,000 might seem like a big number, but in reality it's quite small. We have millions of visitors on an annual basis. If you are a visitor and enjoy the the join button. It's painless...I promise! :) If you are a member I encourage you to share the site with your friends and have them join our junking family.

Thanks again to all! Here's to a great junking season. The snow is starting to melt. Yeah!!!

Your encouraging words, along with your incredible talent and style, have made this site apealing to everyone. We all have become a family. Thank you for that!

And thank you from me to the rest of the contributors and members. You continue to inspire and welcome other members with open arms. You have all made this site what it is. I am one who is looking forward to many more years at JMS. Here's to the next 10,000 and beyond!

JunkSituation writes: Congrats Sue! I just told about 25 women TODAY about your site, AND I even had your book with me for show 'n' tell! I gave a program today to a group of sorority women...wanting to know "what I do"!!! I explained I'm a junk artist inspired by my friends at Junk Market Style. You should have seen the pens and paper come out to write that name down !!
Best wishes for a GREAT year!

JunkArchitect writes: Well congratulations Suzy-Q! How fast time goes by. I joined in 2008 and from day one it's been the BEST junkin' time I've ever had. The most rewarding aspect of JMS is connecting with the other members and sharing ideas, techniques and the love of finding the next BIG junk pile. And thanks Sue for creating a place where things that are old, rusted, chipped, dented and scratched can be reimagined and shared.

Thank you to all the contributors and members who inspire me every day with your creativity, support and friendship...y'all are extra nice to me.
