Thank you so much to all my Sewlebrity Crushes for sharing your amazing sewing skills this month! And thanks to all who stopped by this blog to check them out. It was such a fun series to follow, and I feel incredibly lucky to have had such lovely, creative bloggers be part of my series. I can’t thank you enough!

Our sponsor, The Fat Quarter Shop, is so awesome because… they are giving away a $100 Gift Card! Gotta LOVE that! First, here’s a recap of all the tutorials from Sewlebrity Crush, followed by the Giveaway, and then an exciting announcement of the next big thing on my blog (a really fun contest) coming up for August!

Sewlebrity Crush Recap:

I have a big fat huge crush on The Fat Quarter Shop! I love them because their behind-the-scenes staff are so fun and friendly, plus the fabric they carry a huge and amazing selection of fabric. There is nothing I don’t love about the Fat Quarter Shop! One LUCKY winner is going to love them too!

While my Sewlebrity Crushes took over my blog for the month… I’ve been working behind the scenes on my laundry, organizing my house, and setting up a new contest! Are you ready to hear about it?
—drumroll please—
It is called Cre8 + 2 = Me and You. I’m so excited about this! My mom helped me come up with the idea, and my husband came up with the name for it. Hopefully it will make sense to you after I explain… it is a contest designed to inspire you to spend time with a loved one this summer (most likely a child, but it can be anyone). The point is to inspire you to spend time creating something– anything– while creating memories. 
You are not going to believe the lineup of judges and prizes. All that, plus the guildelines, will be announced next Wednesday (August 8th). In the meantime, there are just a few precious weeks of summer left. If you haven’t already, go do something creative with your special person!
One last thing…. I am guest posting at The Ribbon Retreat today! I’m sharing a tutorial and giveaway for this Bow Holder! Click HERE to see it and enter to win! 🙂

Once upon a time…

I started a blog. This is a tale of my projects, goals, and dreams. Thank you for taking a moment to stop by. I hope you have a beautiful day.
