Feelin the love....

While this attempt and venture into the public realm of sewing for strangers and blogging has been quite the adventure and test of my anxiety about anonymity. I normally crave for anonymity, like the girl who sneaks into a party and just people-watch, that's me.

BUT.

We are feeling the love lately, and I can't help but blush.

Remember the "O'Tennessee" bag? that infamous bag that didn't realize that Tennessee and Kentucky are close to one another but are not the same? Yep, that bag. Onna, the sweetheart that she is, blogged and bragged about the bag and story.

I have always loved her blog and how she captures her daughter's daily activities and smiles, so being featured along side those smiles makes me blush.

Onna's other greatness besides Sydney? She totally rocks with designs and layouts!

My first blog award!

I never expected an award for my dribble here, I don't post nearly as often as I'd like to, and I can't enjoy it from work at all (darn photo filtering firewalls) so I was literally shocked to receive an award from Mom of All Trades (back in July)

I started this blog with one intent, to show and chat about my sewing adventures whether they be successful or complete embarassing failures, so to learn that people enjoy reading along makes me smile.

My blogging philosophy in five words?

There is Humor in Everything


I hope I don't fail with the rules of the award:
*Thank the blogger who awarded it to you. - CHECK :)
*Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using five (5) words. - CHECK
*Pass it on to 10 other blogs which you feel have real substance. - Eeek, 10?? I've drafted this post for over a month hoping to find time to ooh and aaah over other blogs, but just have lost time. How about my favorite four for now?

I'd like to forward this award to some other blogs I've found on my fieldtrips

Little Monkeys
WhimsiKel
Beat Until Fluffy

Austin + San Antonio + Tennessee = One busy girl!

I was off to such a great start with this blog thing, I was enthralled with it all. I became a slight addict, collecting more and more blogs to follow and keep up with. Then the inevitable happened....

I hope I'm not the first to admit defeat of the blog invasion?

July was a busy busy month, no actually June AND July were both busy. Busy at the real work that isn't quite as creative as the job I have with my White, but I was busy with White as well.

So busy that I forgot to take pictures of a couple items.

A safari green set of burpcloths and a changing pad for Austin, TX.
A boy fleece blanket of old vintage toys for San Antonio, TX.

And most recently I did a baby girl set Tennessee. But this time I remembered to take a picture to share :) I loved this set, I had to admit to the owner that its a new favorite and I ran out to buy the other versions of the print (a green and blue) because it worked out perfectly for the changing pad shape and size.



The upcoming week I have two more sets to get shipped out, so lets all hope that I remember to take pictures and share before the packaging is sealed!

I did a bad bad thing...

I took a mini-blog break. Not only did I not post any goodness that I worked on in the month of July but I also didn't blog about any other goodness I found.

I made the even worse faux pass of skipping out on your blogs out there in craftworld. I skipped out just long enough for my google reader to show in angry red "1000+" unread posts. eek. Yes reader got very upset with me, and now reader isnt talking to me because I broke its heart by simply pressing a button or two to say 'mark all as read.' (blush)

Fear not for I did remember to snap some pics yesterday of the latest package being shipped out today! Now if only the photos could magically appear and blog themselves.

PS...how do all the bloggers who work fulltime and have families manage to keep up in this crazyblog land??
