I looked at my calendar the other day and realized it has been about a year since I first started blogging. I had a blog for awhile, but rarely posted, and was content to commment on others blogs. That was until I had a life-altering meeting of the mommy blogging minds. I wrote a lovely, flowery, deep profound post about it, but like the first 6 months or so of my blog, it was lost in a tragic blogger accident.

On that day, I met the ladies who were to become my blogging heroes. On that rainy California day (I remember THAT much of my post), I met BMC, GGC, and MIM (I think all my friends should have acronyms-Hi P, SG, MP, MoM, F!). Sassy, hip, and oh so lovely, these wonderful women inspired me to keep going with the blog, and despite being flaky, corny, goofy, dorky and oh-so-wanna-be Martha Stewart(ish), I have made some amazing friends, and have gained some incredible insight about myself, and my creativity. It IS my hope one day to show you tons of things I have made, and to sell them, give them away, and maybe inspire a timid, but eager crafty blogger the way I was by 3 spirited, inspiring mamas. Who blog. But are not mommy bloggers. I think.

In honor of my blogiversary, I will be doing a apron giveaway, but have to finish it! I will tell you it was inspired by Morgan’s Ruffled apron tutorial, so you have some idea of what it looks like! Anyone who leaves a comment this week will be eligible to win!! Thanks to everyone who has EVER commented on my little corner of the web here…you have kept me going when I wanted to throw in the towel….apron…with ruffles!

  5. Is it too late to enter?! That apron is so cute I would even consider learning how to cook just to be able to use it.

    Or maybe I could just wear it when I take the Papa Johns pizza out of the box.
