After the giveaways are all over (I might cram them together a bit more so it doesn’t drag on quite so long…we’ll see. If you think that’s a good idea, let me know.) I have some great sewing and other craft tutorials planned. Here are some of the projects I’ve been working on:

  • Fleece Blanket Binding
  • Handmade Crib Sheets (Flat and Fitted)
  • Jewelry Organizer (pictured)
  • Skeleton Key Wall Decor (pictured)

I’ll also be putting together some videos on basic sewing techniques and skills like sewing a mitered corner, making and using bias tape, sewing a button, and more, so STICK AROUND! I’m going to be very mad at you all if everybody just stops visiting after the giveaways are over. I have other good stuff on this blog besides giveaways!

One thing I’ve been working on for a while now is putting together a price list for household items of various brands so I can more easily comparison shop. I’ll be sharing my list of prices with you so you can know when a sale is really a sale. I think that will be very useful for everyone!

And I’ve tried some fabulous recipes that I’ll be sharing. Basically, April is going to be a great month for crafty tutorials and other great tips and tricks. And I’m working on my next giveaway already, a huge giveaway with a toy/kid/baby theme. So exciting!

I actually prefer it when the giveaways are all spread out. Believe it or not, I like reading *all* your posts, not just the ones where you’re giving away fabulous things for free. :0) When you spread the contests out, it seems more fair. Just think of it as a party that lasts a long time!

I would love the comparison shopping price list. I also love recipes. I made your double chocolate pie the other day—super good! I also love the way you said to make pie crusts–with rolling them out in a ziplock. That is super easy! I love it! Thanks!

I would LOVE some sewing tips, looking forward to it. I haven’t had my machine out in years and haven’t done much more than make pillows with it. I want to sew so badly, but get so frustrated with the machine. LOL

Wow–you have a lot of great ideas coming up. I like craft tutorials especially if it it something new to me. Videos are great since sometimes seeing it done clears up any confusion with written directions. The comparison shopping list is a wonderful idea too. I always look forward to your blog posts whether a giveaway is part of it or not.

Very cool! I can’t wait for this! I love reading tutorials and learning new craft ideas and techniques!

I can’t wait for the sewing tutorials either. I have a sewing machine, but really don’t use it very much. Believe it or not, my husband can sew much better than me, cross stitching is my forte.

I love the crafts you have been doing and can’t wait to see how to do the jewelry organizer! Thanks for sharing your scrapbooking with us!

I’m looking forward to your fleece blanket binding tutorial as well as the jewelry organizer tutorial. Anything that can keep my jewelry organized and out in sight in a pretty way will be awesome so I can’t wait!

Oh my word, I NEED that jewelry organizer!!! You should see how I’m currently storing all of it….or maybe you shouldn’t….it’s a MESS!! I’ll really be looking forward to seeing your tutorial on it.

PS – I like the give-aways spread out too. :D

I love how clean it looks, even with your earrings on it!! Your very talented!!

I am loving that jewelry organizer. Can’t wait to learn how to make it. My teenage daughter is a big jewelry fan and I have tried lots of ways to keep it all
straight. Right now we are using a wooden rack made for thread. Working pretty well, but not as pretty as this one you have made.

Thanks for all you do to enlighten and teach us crafters.
