200th post

I never really look at the information before I click on "create post" when blogging, but for some reason I did today and I'm amazed that this is post 200!
It's quite a milestone considering almost a year ago when I started this blog I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I had no idea if I would ever keep it up.

Well, I think 200 posts call for a give-away. This is totally unplanned and I have no idea what the give-away will be, but I'll come up with something. So, if you leave a comment on this post, later in the week I'll pull a name out of the hat and send that person a present.

I'm glad I noticed that this was post 200 because this was going to be a very boring post.

I've been in a slight rut the past few days not really feeling like doing much of anything. I did make a mushroom wristlet yesterday (it was a custom order for Etsy)



Yesterday I managed to make this in about 10 minutes. It's an earring holder inspired by this. I can only show the front of it because trust me, the back isn't nearly as pretty. I just hot glued a piece of batting to the cardboard part of the frame, covered it in fabric (hot glued to the back of the frame too) and then hot glued some ribbon to the back.



I know for sure this is a project that will get tons of use. I don't own many earrings, but the ones I do own are in little jars/bowls scattered all over the house. It will be nice to finally have them all in one place where I can see them.

I guess I should also post a reminder that The Challenge is winding up soon so don't forget to post your projects on Flickr!!! Sadly, the challenge for me will be continuing for a while longer.

Happy 200th post!
The ruts... I think they have to happen for our creative brains to recover from creating. I tried to force myself out of the rut and into the Big Quilt project and promptly cut ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE RULER! (Why, yes, I AM blond!)
*hits head against wall*
(I'm hoping I'll be able to use that smaller piece later on...)

Congrats on reaching 200! I am almost to my 200th post too. Which is actually a bit pathetic when you consider that you started blogging in July of 2006 and I started 6 months before that! Such a great idea for hanging up your earrings too.

Congrats! Those posts sure do add up quickly. Your not alone in the craftign rut. I'm blaming it on the summer heat. All I want to do is be lazy!

Valerie Leonard said...

Congratulations on your 200th post! I always enjoy reading about what you're up to! You're inspiring me to learn how to use the sewing machine that my mom bought me for Christmas three years ago and I still don't know how to use!

Congrats on 200! You got way more done than I do when I'm in a rut. My ruts usually end with the house a disaster and me on the couch with a Dr. Pepper and a snack bowl...

Felicia said...

Congrats on number 200!! I absolutely love your earring holder. Right now I'm using my memo board, but I like the frame idea better. I'll have to see if I have any laying around. Thanks for the idea.

I love your mushroom wristlet! Thank you for taking the time to post pictures of your projects. I'm not blogging yet, but I've been inspired by you and other crafty ladies on the internet to get back into sewing and quilting again. Thank you. :-)
