So. A few days ago I came across the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. What is this you might ask?
It is a combination of Giveaway Heaven and OH MY GOD SO MANY BLOGS!
You can find the giveaway over at Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!!! Go, hurry! Enter as many giveaways as you want to! PLEASE go and check it out if you're interested in entering some giveaways. And by 'Some' I mean there are hundreds to choose from. Folks from all over the world have pooled together to create this GINORMOUS giveaway event. Some of got sponsors who have given products to be given away, a lot have raided their own stashes for goodies to share!
Go and enter! Whilst you're there get yourself some new crafty blogs to follow!
I *may* have added somewhere in the region of 110 new blogs to my list of blogs to catch up on! So much experience! So many folks as new as I am! So many willing to share their tips, and tricks, and mishaps!
It's like I went along for years unable to find how to open the door to the crafty world. I sat on the outside of it for years. Wanting to get to the other side but I had no clue how to go about it! Then I met my Fiance Jacob. He and his mother just happened to run a Cross Stitching business .. boy did I get in THAT door quickly! It's like the door to that world just exploded! So many new things to see and do and people to talk to!
But .. I was still finding it hard to crack the doors to the other crafty realms. Then my good friend Anne found me a quilting class at a store that didn't tell me I wasn't good enough, or that I was too young for their group. And that door cracked open a little. This prompted me to scour the internet looking for blogs. Folks just like me to look to for inspiration, and guidance!
Then of course I decided to finally go ahead and try embroidery. Yet again, it was hard to crack that door but woah! And now Tatting! There has just been such an explosion of information and reference points and just everything!
Thank you Sew Mama Sew ! This Giveaway event is just spectacular!
