blogging funk, blog updates & scraps for sale

Ever want to log off and stop blogging? Well that has been me ever since I switched over to Word Press. Really. I’m struggling through it though, because I know that I would regret it in the long run if I gave it up. But right now, blogging hasn’t been fun at all for me. Working on the logistics of a blog is what I dislike the most and when I switched over a lot of my links were lost. Sorry that a lot of you were having trouble finding some of my tutorials and that so many of my links were broken. I have gone through and fixed all of them, I hope. So please let me know if you have found any issues anywhere. Also I decided to switch all of my templates over from Scribd to box. I have had so many complaints about Scribd and apologize to those of you that had a hard time downloading any of the templates. Hopefully box will be more user friendly for all of you. I personally have downloaded from box before and have never had problems with it. Below are the links to the tutorials that I just updated.

The past few weeks I have spent most of my time organizing, painting, gardening and purging lots of stuff. One of the first places I decided to tackle was with this big ole pile of scraps. I ended up with 4 bags of scraps. So if any of you are interested in these bags just let me know and I will set up a custom listing in my etsy shop. Just send me an email telling me which bag you would like along with your zip code so I can calculate the cost for you. Like in the past I am just going to charge you for shipping and not the cost of the scraps. Just promise me you will give them a good home and make something pretty with them! And it will be first come first serve.Bag #1: large scraps. Some are a little smaller then a fat quarter and some are larger then a fat quarter. Bag weighs 2.8lbs. Bag #2: small scraps. Best to use for small crafting projects. Bag weighs 2lbs.Bag #3: small scraps. Best to use for small crafting projects. Bag weighs 1.7lbs. Bag #4: ruffle fabric scraps. Some pretty small to small sized pieces. Best for smaller craft and sewing projects. Bag weighs 1.5lbs.Bag #5: medium sized scraps. Good for small sewing and craft projects. Larger scraps then the previous two bags. Bag weighs 1.7lbs.

    I hear ya on the blogging funk. Only thing is, mine is due to lack of crafty time. :-( Yay for purging! I always enjoy doing that!

  2. Hi Christina,
    I would be really interested in the 1st scrap bundle, however I am in Canada so sometimes the shipping is rediculous. My postal code is L8S2C7 if you could give me a shipping price I will get back to you to let you know if I want it.

  3. I’d be interested in bag #5 (and maybe #2 or #3 also if no one else claims them, though I doubt that’ll happen!) :)

  4. If shipping will be too much for Melissa, I would like #1. If shipping is fine with her and she can get #1, than yay! So then I would like #5, if possible. Thanks!

    Zip code is 37167.

  5. Blogging funk – TOTALLY understand that one! Mine last weeks…. and then I blog daily for 1-2 weeks and then the funk again. :(

  6. I hope that your blogging troubles clear up soon. I very much enjoy getting your posts in my email. It has been inspiring and gotten me sewing again. I hadn’t in a long while. I would be happy to include your scraps in my work. All my projects are small… I have a short attention span. If the smaller scraps are long I would love to make fabric flowers with them. I also love making yoyos to put on my cards. Whatever doesn’t get snatched up I would be happy to make into something fun! Let me know – P.S. You’re awesome!

  12. Just read your blog for the first time after being directed here from a friends blog and I really enjoyed reading! I love to sew…. And since losing my job its been quite difficult to purchase supplies with a limited income.. Therefore if you have ANY material or scraps of any kind leftover I’d gladly give them a good home for they would be used in making things for Christmas gifts for the grandchildren! What a kindness this is in giving away like this… The world needs more kindnesses like you have displayed! Thank you so much and I anxiously await your reply as to whether there are any left. How will you reply to me, here or vodka email? God bless! Have. Wonderful night! Tammy Angel
