200 Blogs Old! and a CONTEST!

So here it is, my 200th post. That's a lot of mornings almost late to work! In trying to come up with a special post, I thought about reviews of some of my favorites, links to the tutorials, a special tutorial, and lots of other things. The fact is, the nature of blogging is like a diary--except for the first time in my life, I don't quit after 3 days because I hate reading my own voice. Since I'm writing to you, dear readers, I feel much better about baring my soul. It doesn't seem quite so sappy, although at times I can be overly dramatic (who, me? nah!)

This pic is from the Farmer's Market this weekend--I love all the antique ornaments!

So instead of looking back at at all my posts, I want to celebrate you guys because you have all been incredible--from your comments to bringing me gifts, even just hearing a perfect stranger say "I read your blog"--it's all been a huge thrill and it makes me excited to craft everyday just so I can show you and also to participate in this lovely world of craft blogs out in the world.

What does all that mean? It means I want to give you a gift! I'm going to take all the comments from this page, and draw 5 names to receive one of my new creations--a CUFFEE! (Coffee Cuff) or a Bookie--it will be your choice. And one special commenter will receive a Zipper Pouch. So just leave a quick comment--and everyone is eligible, even if we're related.

You have until Monday, December 3rd to comment, and if you come to see me in Chattanooga at the Farmer's Market this Sunday, I'll give you a Cuffee for free. Just tell me that you read this post.

Thanks to Freshie and my friend Wendy's mom for inspiring me about these Cuffees. Sharon gave me the idea, and then Freshie was actually carrying one with her--so surely people will use them, right? I mean, they'll just fit into the pocket of your purse. I've been using one for a couple of days now and it's so nice, even on my glasses. I just love the feel of the cotton fabric instead of the cold glass.

Here is a stack of them waiting to be stitched. They really appeal to my love of production.

I noticed your cuffee the other day on your desk but I didn't say anything about it. Very Cute! I bet those will be great in the summertime when your drink sweats.

holy crap! that's a lot of comments! you go, rock star!

I'm glad you made the coffee cuffs - I need a new one since I lost one of mine. Just a thought, though - men need these, too. How about one with, say, bicycles on it?
