I appreciate all of you who took the time to leave your thoughts and opinions about giveaways. You gave me much to think about. I have decided that I will continue to stay away from sponsored giveaways. I don't want my blog to be a business. I realize that may seem ironic given that there are ads over there on the right. The point of that is to sustain my crafting habit! What (little) money is made I am saving up for a big ticket item (except for this months check. it is going here). My goal? A new sewing machine! Plus it's kind of fun "earning" money again. It's been almost eight years since I had a paying job.
I started this blog a little over two years ago. I certainly never expected anyone to read it and I really think I would have gotten bored and given up blogging if it weren't for all of you. You guys make it fun! I love the awesome people I have met and developed friendships with. I love the inspiration I glean and hope that I am able to inspire you too.
Though I won't be doing sponsored giveaways I do want to do occasional giveaways of items I have made myself especially for you. You guys make blogging fun and I want to thank you for reading my blog. I don't know how often I'll do the giveaways, maybe twice a year, maybe once a quarter. It will be a surprise! Don't worry though they will be simple and painless; no liking, tweeting or any other shenanigans!
