phew...sorry it has taken me so long to get back to my blog. Cute boys in skirts is a hard act to follow! I think I had a record number of comments for that post LOL...I also had a record number of tags - 6 to be exact!

I need to accomplish quite a bit with this post so please excuse the length!

First...this post marks my 100th post so I would like to celebrate with a contest! I will choose a lucky winner from people who post a comment on this post- I will randomly select a name on Sunday night and post the winner here on Monday....what is up for grabs? A surprise from me! Don't hesitate to comment if you have no children - I make fun things for grown-ups too!! So..leave a comment by SUNDAY night and you'll have chance to win a little surprise!

Second - tag you're it x6! egads does that mean 42 things about me??? I fear you know too much already reading my blog LOL so I will stick to 7....

1. when I was born my middle name was Logan but at some point in the first few weeks/months of life my parents changed it ot Mary - they later gave Logan to my youngest brother.

2. I turn 40 this year! EEKKKK - run for the hills & hide!

3. I have craft ADD - who doesn't that reads my blog?!?!?

4. I would love to travel to Asia, especially Vietnam

5. we don't have cable TV or a microwave! It'sour version of living off the grid!

6. the hammock in our front yard is my little slice of heaven on earth - when the kids get off the bus we love to snuggle together and talk about their day.

7. I make a mean chocolate chip cookie and I love to bake for our school bus driver

*****I too am going to pass on tagging 7 new folks as I could never catch the other kids when we played tag on the playground! ***********

Third...I have a number of new listings on both ebay & etsy!

felted wool purse with detachable sash and felted CASHMERE flower pin!

new knit skirt on etsy

2 piece knit set for ODOD's playdate launch on ebay

sister sets on ebay for BDB Write Stuff Launch - the gorgeous models are Amanda & Whitney!!

so - thanks for reading all of this and don't forget to leave a comment!

I certainly hope your college sewing buddy wins. Remember me carrying my machine to your apartment in a laundry basket? Have a good day, Amy

i don't have cable tv either and being out here in the country, we lose email service several times/month but i find that these two obstacles keep me from sewing.....so who needs them anyway!! ;) love your frocks, keep on keepin' on!!

modmama said...

Happy 40th birthday! I love reading your blog. You have inspired me to start sewing for my 7 year old little girl. She actually asked to wear a skirt that I had made for her to school yesterday. I was so proud! I love your designs, you inspire me!

Kristen said...

janice- no TV - way to go! sometimes I feel like putting ours out at the curb!

asquad - whoo hoo No Cable!!

modmama - I am touched that I have inspired you to create for your own daughter - the fact that she wants to wear what you make should be taken as the highest compliment!! keep up the creativity!

monkeydoodle - glad you're popping in to say hi!

amy - I most certainly remember your treks across Linden Ave with your sewing machine in the laundry basket - we were happening college seniors making our own graduation dresses!!

Jennifer - it is so great to design for someone who appreciates it as much as you do!

thanks for commenting ladies!
