One Year Already and Fabric Giveaway

Time definitely flies when you’re having fun!  It’s hard to believe that today is my 1-year blog-a-versary (is that a word?…..probably not).  1-year ago today I started this blog with much encouragement from my friends and here I am a year later having met so many wonderful and talented people and feeling like I am truly part of a community.

It’s amazing to me how this blog has evolved over the last year.  Click here to read my very first post EVER!

What have I learned from blogging over the last year?

  • Blogging is truly a community
  • There are so many wonderful and talented people in this world
  • Blogging is a lot of work
  • Blogging is totally rewarding
  • Blogging is addictive
  • It’s so important to blog about something you are passionate about
  • There are many different ways to create the same thing
  • Blog when you have something to say, not just because you feel like you should be blogging
  • Good pictures are key
  • It is so important to stay true to yourself, your design style, your passions, your interests, ect…..if people like it, they will stick around.
  • Never start a blog because you want to make money – blog because you love it.

I seriously cannot thank you all enough for joining me on this amazing journey.  I love reading your comments and I love getting to know all of you.  And because I love you guys……….I’m going to do another giveaway today from my personal fabric stash to one lucky “The Cottage Home” reader.

So here is what I am offering to you………..
8 Half Yards of Heather Bailey’s “Nicey Jane”
So I’m not necessarily going to tell you which prints I will be sending, but it will be a total of 4 yards (8 half yard cuts) of the prints shown above.  This is my very favorite fabric collection, so this means I really love you guys……like, really, really, really………
There are three ways to enter (leave one comment for each entry).

  293. Hi Lindsay,

    I love your cute hair clip post. I have brand new niece (Just a week old) and I was researching on sewing tutorials for clips , hair band and all fun stuff for a brand new baby girl. I was planning to buy some heather bailey fabric. Aren’t they lovely prints especially the pink ones. So opt for a cute baby girl.

    Wining this would be a pleasant surprise.Thanks for the giveaway.

  294. I love all of your blog posts! I became a reader when I was searching for a tutorial on how to make fabric jar lids. Never ended up doing the project I had in mind, but your Fabric Lid Mason Jar tutorial was just what I was looking for 🙂

  295. And I’m already a follower (you’re welcome) 🙂

  324. I receive your emails.

  325. I started reading your blog because I am a newbie, fledgling seamstress, with 3 girls, and would love to make heirloom quality, simple projects for gifts and relationship building time with my girls. Crafting is absolutely not my forte either, but I love to find crafts that actually do something and do not waste resources, but rather turn them into tools for life.The girls’ sense of accomplishment is a wonderful thing to see, and it is a blessing in my heart to know that their skills are far beyond my own at a very young age. We are to train our children so they will go higher than we did, right? Anyway, for these reasons I really love your tutorials. I am so new at reading your blog, I am not sure if you already do this or no, but I am looking forward to seeing ideas for establishing yearly traditions coming up for the holidays, like countdown calendars and etc. Thank you for all you do.

    have a nice day!
    [email protected]

  469. I discovered your blog only fairly recently, but it was love at first sight. The blog itself gives an immediate feel for what it holds: beautifully designed and everything comes together. There are no “false notes”, everything sings of a theme.

    I really enjoyed your posts about your craft room (so inspiring), about your youngest daughter’s birthday party (from her beautiful dress & bonnet up to the oh so yummy looking food and the inviting decorations), about your clever idea to serge the edges of newly-aquired fabric before putting it to the washing machine – to name but a few.

    And I am still baffled by your gift for picking out different fabrics and combining them in the most stunning ways.

    I’m glad to have you(r blog) “around”, congratulations on your first blogiversary and I hope that you will continue to find joy and inspiration in all that you create!
