What a year!

Hey everyone!
It's my blogging anniversary today.
I have never kept a journal for more than a month or so.
Keeping this blog is a big step for me.

I am commemorating the occasion with a give-away.
I have some stuff that I have made but can't get rid of any other way than to pass it along to y'all.

Here are three aprons that I made for a craft show last December, and they have been sitting in my closet longing for a home
Let's call them-


I also have a tea cozy that wasn't quite acceptable to the customer for whom it was made.

Please leave a comment indicating which one you would like and I will pick a winner at random.

So many things have happened in the last year.

My children have grown so much.

The Elder Hug-a-Bug started going to School, and the Younger Hug-a-Bug is newly toilet trained.

Goodbye diapers!!!

Coming here every few days has helped keep me on task with my knitting and sewing projects too.

I have a habit of starting too many things and then forgetting what it was that I was working on, but now I have pretty pictures to look at to remind me.

The best thing about being here in blogland is the lovely community of bloggers.

I have made new friends and found old ones.

Such a joy.

Thanks everyone for coming and sharing this space with me.

  1. How could that tea cozy have been unacceptable? It's adorable!
    I've loved watching your blog over the year! I've been enjoying the 5th lamp pictures and I love seeing your babies!

  2. Congratulations on a year! I love the tomato apron, although I'll warn you it'd be well used, and probably tomato-splattered in my kitchen.

  3. oh yeah! CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NO DIAPERS!!!! I'm jealous. :)

  4. Congratulations, Jess! You are quite an inspiration on all fronts, be it picture-taking, crafting or momming (plus, you're fun to work with!).

    YAY no diapers!!!

    If I were forced to choose, the lemon apron is very sweet.

  5. Congrats Jess! Your blog is one I check-in with regularly, and I'm glad you're out there! And I love the blossoms apron...:) Oh, and welcome to the land of no diapers!
