Bloggy Birthday! (Kind Of...)

Wow- a year of blogging came and went so fast!  My first post was actually right before Thanksgiving of 2008 and with the Holidays I totally forgot to post when the 1 year anniversary was here in November!  So, we'll just pretend the anniversary is today, k?!  That way I can host a giveaway too ;)

I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this whole blog thing but I've really enjoyed it.  It's fun to have a little place to post pictures and thoughts about what's going on around here and get to communicate with all of you out in blog land too.  Thank you to all of my readers and for all of your nice comments along the way!

So, now for the giveaway...  I'm going to put together a little "surprise" grab bag full of goodies- some fabric, jewelry, etc.  All you have to do to enter to win is submit a comment by Monday, Jan. 11th at 8pm EST telling me what you would like to see more of on this blog so I can make it even better for 2010!  Do you want to see more behind the scenes? More "Get Your Craft On" tutorials? A "Frequently Asked Questions" Post?  Features on other artists?  Should I bring back the Etsy Mood Boards?  More Buster (ha!)?  Anything other suggestions?  Thanks so much and good luck!  A winner will be announced Tuesday, Jan. 12th. (and please make sure if your comment doesn't link to your profile I have an email addy to contact you if you win!)

Congratulations on your 'anniversary'. Here's to many more! I'd love to know how you got into textile design and maybe advise for others who want to follow the same path? Best wishes for 2010.

Happy (a little late) one year blogiversary! I think I'd like to see some more 'behind the scenes' stuff - I really enjoy it! I'd also like to hear more about how your fabric lines (designing, etc) are coming along.

We all love to get our craft on around here, so bring on the tutorials. But I really love fabric and would love to know more about the creative process of seeing your designs be transformed into beautiful fabrics.

I'd love to see more "Behind the Scenes" and learn more about how things are happening for you in your neck of the design woods!
