I’m driving off to the desert this week on a little artist retreat to do the final round of edits on my book with the girls from Mix Tape and Yes, Please, then jetting off with my little girl to see JACINDA, CLARE, AND QUINN IN DALLAS WOO-HOO. No fear, Jacinda will still be here laying mad DIYs on y’all and I’ve lined up a few really fun guest posts for the week so stay tuned. AND, since I’ve been blessed with this vacation-y gift of friendship and time, I thought I’d share a little gift with you, a new giveaway!
We love this book from amazing blogger Amy Carol of Angry Chicken. Bend-the-Rules Sewing: The Essential Guide to a Whole New Way to Sew “brings stitchers everywhere a down-to-earth introduction to sewing, including thirty projects so adorable and cool theyll inspire anyone to pick up a needle and thread.” Amy has a great way of distilling every project to it’s simplest terms and helping you really learn how to sew: “Written with Amys characteristic warmth and flair, youll find information on basic equipment and supplies, advice on choosing and using fabrics, and a fantastic section on techniques. In addition, Amy walks readers through easy, inspiring patterns designed for the fashion-savvy crafter. Playful, modern projects, which include pillows, aprons, and purses, help novices master sewing skills while providing immediate sewing gratificationand confidence. Best of all, Amy explains whats easy, whats hard, and when not to sweat the small stuff.”
So for this giveaway we ask you to share a rule in your house that tends to get broken. For example, in my house I want my daughter to eat healthy meals and display an undying love for vegetables and international cuisine. In reality I allow the consumption of far too many marshmallows, cupcakes, and candied bacon. What can I say, it makes me happy when she gets excited about something I’ve made! Don’t judge me….
