Fabric Happiness and my 100th post!

Ohmigoodness, where have I been!??! I've been waiting and waiting for my camera cord to arrive all week and it was driving me nuts! My mom had told me that she sent it out on Tuesday and I bargained with John that if it wasn't here by today that we could buy a memory card reader (which perhaps may have been one of my reader's suggestions.) Anyway, it didn't come today, so while I was waiting for an hour to get our new phones, I found a reader on sale for $10. Sold! Ahh, it feels so good to be able to upload pictures again!

Anyway, I have lots of new things to show off. I certainly won't be lacking in things to post for the week. You may remember I was involved in the "my fingers hurt" swap. It was one of the best swaps ever. Wednesday I received a box with 9 different packages of 5" fabric squares. Oh, the joy. These girls outdid themselves with the fabric choices.

I've had so much fun playing with my new fabrics, and can't wait to show you what I've used some of them for. Our lovely organizer, Jen, sent along her fabrics with this cute little pin. I just adore it!





Oh, and perhaps I should just spread the love. This happens to be my 100th post! (And someone else's as well) I seriously thought it would take me forever to get here, but at some point, I started posted almost every week day. My first blog was in October of 2006. And there is a very cute picture of Isaiah. It's just making me laugh right now.

When I first heard of blogs, it really confused me. I didn't quite understand the point. Then I found some craft blogs, and I became addicted (to say the least). I think the first blogs I read were Posie Gets Cozy and Little Miss Meshell. I still read these blogs and love them! I love the connections I have made through blogging and certainly the input on my crafty endeavors. So to thank you all, let's have a little giveaway, shall we!?!?! Some might think this is a way for me to get rid of my fabric for the challenge (ahem, Karyn), but since I've been getting some fabric goodness, I thought that you should too. Anyway, rambling. Let's see. How about 2 winners. One will win something crafty made by me (a surprise) and one will win a stack of fabrics, maybe some trims, buttons, we'll see what else makes it into the box.

Ok, you know the drill. Leave a comment to enter. If you're a lurker, de-lurk and tell me about yourself. I'll do the drawing on Wednesday. And, thanks again to all my bloggy "friends."

I was beginning to wonder what happened to you.

A $10 card reader? Sounds like a bargain to me.

And, happy 100th post.

Felicia said...

Congrats on your hundredth post! I'm so glad you got that card reader. I use mine as a backup when I forget to put my cord in my bag. :) Blogs are groovy.

Karyn said...

Congratulations Katie!!!! Card reader, what a super idea, except now I can't giggle at the thought of you running around getting photos burned to CD's. :)

And, you're welcome for suggesting "the challenge" he he he

Congrats on your 100th post! I have really enjoyed reading your blog - keep up the good work!

LeeAnn said...

I was the same way when I would hear about people blogging. "What's the point?", I would ask myself. Then I found the little crafting ring and I am hooked!

Happy 100th!

LeeAnn said...

I had the same thinking when it came to blogs. But that was before I found this crafting world. Now I couldn't live without it!

Happy 100th!

Congrats, Katie on your 100th post!!! Whoooo hoooo!! It looks like you really did hit the jackpot with your swap. Dang--missed that one. Thanks for offering up a giveaway--count me in!

Strawberry Cat said...

Hello,
I've been out of town for the weekend (which possibly shows that I've been lurking around here for a while!), and wanted to say Congrats on the 100th post!

I'm very glad you got that card reader! I miss all your pictures!

As for me, I'm a stay at home with 2 jobs (that allow me to continue to stay home), and I've been using all my free time to get back into crafting. I used to be big into crafts when I was little, and I've only recently remembered how fun it was!

Congratulations again! I hope to see many more posts from you in the future!

Cici said...

confrats on your 100th post. card readers are wonderful - my camera cord was destroyed almost immediately by our (then) puppy.

Chara Michele said...

Congrats on reaching your 100th post!!

Glad that you are able to post pictures again! (So I guess it was a good suggestion to get the card reader, great job finding one at such a great price too.) Thanks for linking to my blog too:)
