Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I live in rural Oregon with my husband and little dog. I craft, sew, and cook. I also do some freelance writing.
How did you get started blogging?
I started looking around at other blogs and thought, "Hey! That's something I want to do." I was looking for a way to share my new sewing projects with people, and blogging was the perfect way to do that.
What do you love most about blogging?
I look forward to creating new connections with other bloggers.
You also do giveaways on your blog, how did you get started doing giveaways?
My first giveaway was when I reached 50 followers on my blog. I decided to celebrate (since I figured I'd never reach such a number) and offered a set of cards that I had crafted myself. Since then my blog has grown, and I've hosted more of my own giveaways as well as giveaways sponsored by others. I've been able to find people through Bloggerdise, and others have simply contacted me.
Do you have any favorite blog posts that you would like to share?
One of my favorite posts has been for some Worm Cupcakes that I created.
Tell us about your weekly link up!
My weekly link up is called "I Made It! Monday"! I love looking through projects, crafts, and recipes that people have created. It's such a fun way to get inspiration and see what others have been up to in their own lives. It's also a great way to discover new blogs with fantastic crafts.
