On Encouragement . . . and an Epic Giveaway

I’ve been doing a little scheming over the past few weeks, and I’m
excited to share with you the epic giveaway I’ve put together with
Rachael at imagine gnats and Mary at Craft Buds! We started with a simple idea, and by contacting just one or two sponsors. Before we knew it, this giveaway had a life of its own!

One of the fantastic parts of being a creative blogger is the encouragement and support of all of my readers. I was incredibly blessed this week to sell a quilt after I posted a photo to Flickr. It’s the very first quilt I’ve sold, and it was on a total whim that I listed it! This was beyond encouraging, especially after vending at a craft fair this weekend, and barely breaking even on the cost of my table. I’m sure I’m not alone in this, and that many of you have been there, too.

Thank you for the comments. Thank you for the likes. You keep me going and creating, and I cannot think of a better way to say thanks than to put together a huge giveaway in hopes that one of my readers would get to stuff their stocking with something to keep you creating and sewing well into the new year!

I’ve teamed up with some fantastic bloggers and companies to help you have the craftiest Christmas ever! Enter the Stuff Your Crafty Stocking Giveaway for your chance to win one of five HUGE stocking stuffers. The total of all prizes is valued at more than $2,000!
