Champagne for celebration!

This is so funny! Somebody just emailed me asking if they could go the member galleries and look at the first uploads of some of the members, to determine the number of years they have been with us. :bigsmile: Why not! Yes, that's is a quick way and no I'm not going to reveal your name for trying. Dont' worry. :beer: :bigsmile:

Waw, I am so happy that I'll atleast get some few drops to taste from this lovely champagne bottle! ;) ( I do not think gallery will give accurate answer) But Lata, I feel so many senior members of ikolam will wake up now and become active again after this survey! Good work. All the best :bigsmile: By the way your twin chikku kolams are very cute. Admired the bottle colouring.

Thank you so much all of you, for your lovely comments! And thank you Lakshmi for selecting my kolam as rod. I was thrilled. :D As we can all see from the table above, we have been blessed to have members who have been active for so long, in sharing their works and thoughts in this site. The years have gone by so busily, and I feel bad for not celebrating so many anniversaries! Each day was a creative one and am glad nowadays some of our long-term members have started announcing their anniversaries in the site. :bigsmile: :beer:

Dear lata mam, Ikolam members have always been an inspiration for newcomers like me….they have always appreciated my little effort.And what a learning experience for me….Looking at their kolams has triggered my creativity….Earlier I did it randomly now I keep in mind the symmetry,finelines,color combinations…..So it has added moreto my growth & my passion…..each day u find new kolams ,new ideas so pleasing so beautiful ….i mean it’s a never ending collection……Celebrations and honoring their eff orts and their creativity is a wonderful deed…..Thank you all…….congratulations ,a salute & tons of Love & hugs…
