As I mentioned yesterday, I am celebrating one year of blogging about my cooking and sewing adventures. I am amazed that I have accomplished all that I have — I have baked fancy cakes, perfected roasted chicken, whipped up some tasty cocktails, made some cute tops, conquered a princess seam sloper, and sewed a boutique-worthy dress. I have also enjoyed “meeting” other bloggers, helping me broaden my sewing skills and exposing me to things I may not have otherwise come across.
In the coming weeks/months, I hope to share with you all the finished projects that have been hanging in my closet for a while now as well as the ones that are just getting finished up. My life is pretty hectic, so finding time to sew is hard enough, but finding time to get good photos and blog about them is even harder. I hope with longer days ahead, this will not be as much of an issue. Right now I have about 6 unblogged garments to show you. Perhaps I will aim to present 1 every two weeks?
In the kitchen, Mr. Homemaker and I have recently subscribed to an organic produce delivery service and receive a box every other week. So far we have been very pleased and find ourselves eating at home a lot more often. I will try to share more recipes with you that involve fresh produce from our box as well as go through some of my entertaining essentials.
Well, enough of that. Now for the giveaway I mentioned yesterday. I am giving away, compliments of me, a gift certificate for a free Craftsy class to one lucky reader. All you have to do is comment on this post and tell me which of my posts in the past year has been your favorite and what you would like to see me post in the upcoming year. This giveaway is open to readers anywhere in the world (the prize will be provided via e-mail). If you aren’t familiar with Craftsy, it is an online learning platform that provides video courses for many different crafts (baking, cake decorating, sewing, knitting, jewelry making, gardening, etc.). You can watch the classes at your convenience and on your own time and they never expire. Even if you don’t win, they offer several free mini classes, so it’s worth checking out.
Please note, this giveaway is not being sponsored by Craftsy. I am purchasing this prize myself to celebrate my one year Blogiversary. Yay!!!
The giveaway will close next Thursday, January 31, and I will announce the winner shortly thereafter. Good luck and thanks for reading!
