2nd Day Giveaway! Looking for Contributors.

Hi Everyone,

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:

This is the adorable bag with Vicky the love of my life (ROFL)
It is a sewing first aid kit, go here to see the other side which is even cuter. Mistress E. I am sorry for taking so long to get this picture up.

So what shall the prize be today?

A Stitch In Color Fat Eighth Bundle. It does not look like this anymore, though, because I let my quilt guild take the ribbon off and look through it :) It is all nice and clean and still nicely folded though :) They were very respectful of the fabric LOL Just leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway. Don't forget to enter on yesterdays giveaway if you haven't already

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!

  2. Wonderful bag, I really need to try some this year.
    This is the year that I want to try new things, finish old and create some new ones of my own. I also need to hone my tutorial skills, I am lazy with keeping track of what I do, since I just go for it and then try to remember what I did;)

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year and blessings in the coming year.

    Debbie

  24. I was squealing and shaking with excitement when I opened a package yesterday from the Phat Fiber group. I haven't managed to pick up a box yet but I did win one of their giveaways of 4 oz of Angora/Alpaca blend. I am so happy!

  58. My current favorite word is 'flabbergasted'. Not sure how you could fit that into a blog though lol. VermontPines@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the first aid bag and all of your posts! I think they are always fun and witty. thanks and happy new year!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I think your new word for the year should be Flamboyant. adjective 1. strikingly bold or brilliant; showy: flamboyant colors. 2. conspicuously dashing and colorful.
    Sounds like a great word for fabric!

  68. I can understand why you were so excited to see Elizabeth H.'s name on your package. Perhaps tell your husband it's similar to him being in a baseball memorabilia swap with Derek Jeter or Albert Pujols.

    Thanks for another enticing giveaway, and thank you for all the effort that goes into making your blog such a fun place to visit.

    ReplyDelete

    My word for last year was joy. I had so much fun with it, I may keep it again this year. I will have to think about it.

  181. I've been thinking about putting my name forward to contribute, but it sounds like you've had more interest than you could fit into a year! Definitely something to aspire to though :)

  182. That fabric is so pretty... and I think I need my own sewing first aid kit! That is so cute!

  183. My word for 2012 is No. I need to learn how to say No to so many things - new projects (until others that are begun are finished); people who take advantage of my time and my tendency to procrastinate. Thanks for the chance!
