Do you guys ever think to yourself a whole wonderful blog post with lots of witty lines and things, and then forget half of it when you sit down to write? I did that yesterday. Oh well :) I am gonna sew today... this makes me giddy with excitement!
I wanted to show you my Secret Santa gift from the Twitter #SSSwap... umm can I just say when I got the box and saw the return address I squeeeeed :) Literally! My husband thought I hurt myself. :) I was jumping around going "Elizabeth Hartman is my Secret Santa" Totally lost on him of course... So you may have seen this on her blog her pictures are way better than mine:

So what shall the prize be today?
Now I have a request... Those of you that receive my newsletter know that it is all about fun and giving back to you, not a huge sales pitch or anything. I have a great group of ladies that contribute every month, but they are working their fingers to the bone (without a complaint I might add). I thought it would be nice to add a few new people. I would love to have one new "Guest" each month contribute to the offerings. If you don't know about the newsletter, we write 2 or more tutorials for you each month just for fun and inspiration.
I am looking for people that want to write a tutorial and provide it to the readers of the newsletter. What do you get in return? I will send the guest contributor a free pack of fabric the month of their guest post to make their tutorial with (I usually let you pick your own fabrics unless I have too many from one collection).
So if you want to give it a shot email me at intrepidthread at g mail dot com with "contribute" in the subject line of the message. Tell me what you like to make, what kind of crafts you do, what month or holiday you have an idea for, and anything you think is relevent and I will pick the first few months guests. Please don't get your feelings hurt if I don't pick you for the first few months ... there are a lot of months to come. I love you all and don't want to hurt anyone's feelings :) PS. All skill levels are welcome :)
WORD FOR THE YEAR:
Last year a bunch of bloggers were picking a theme word for their New Year hoping to live up to it. I saw fearless and decided I wanted that one too. I changed mine to Intrepid though didn't want to be a copy cat LOL So now is the time to reflect... did I live up to Intrepid ... I am proud to say I did! Woot... so now to pick a new word... I will let you know what it is tomorrow.
Hugs! Be safe and have fun this New Year's Eve! Tomorrow we start a brave new year!
