It's My Blog Anniversary on January 8th!

Tomorrow is my 4th Blog Anniversary!!!!

I started this blog because I was on a couple of internet sewing lists & boards and on both you had to be concise, to the point and on-topic...especially on-topic...no wandering off onto other things! *LOL*  And sometimes, I wanted to wander, be off topic and ramble on...so I followed my friend Liana (who I refer to as the "Godmother of my Blog") and started one!

When I dove in, I didn't have a digital camera (I was using those disposable ones), had just gotten cable internet and my dad's computer and didn't know if anyone would read my ramblings...but I went ahead, wrote that first post and the rest is history.

Fast forward four years and here we all are...I've documented the making of my daughter's prom dress, my experience in making two SWAPs...now working on my 3rd...I've ranted about politics...written tributes to some people who've meant so much to me...and worked my TNT patterns H-A-R-D!!! *LOL*  I've met some amazing fellow sewists and bloggers...and I've bought ALOT of fabric and patterns!!!

So please celebrate with me as I start my fifth year of blogging!  And to celebrate I'm giving some gifts from my infamous button & trim collection.  Now how can you win one of these lovely party gifts?  Simple...

1.  You must leave a comment on this post ONLY!  If you leave a comment on any other post, it won't be counted.  Comments must be left by Friday, January 15th and I won't be posting any reminders!

2.  You must be a follower by midnight of January 11, 2009, EST.  I'm giving some of you lurkers the chance to come out of the shadows! *smile*  And yes, I will ship internationally!

3.  The drawing will be held Saturday afternoon, January 16th by putting the numbers from the post into Random.org.

Wanna see the SWAG?

Four Riri Zippers:



A selection of Mother of Pearl Buttons in four sizes:



4 Yards of Trim
from a roll that I bought from Britex Fabrics in San Francisco:



and a copy of the January 2010 Burdastyle Magazine:



Okay, get to celebrating with me...leave a comment and may the luckiest four people win!  Do you see a theme here...4...4...4!!! *LOL*

On the serious side...thank you ALL for stopping by and reading my ramblings...ooohhhhing and aaahhhhing OR not over one of my creations...and for taking the journey with me...my very special thanks to those who've been with me from my first post!  You are ALL sooooo appreciated! 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

  1. OK, I have 'delurked' and am posting the first comment. Does that help my chances of winning?? I have followed your blog for quite awhile and am always excited to see a new post. Congratulations on the anniversary!

  2. Congrats on 4! I don't know if I have commented before, but I have been reading for quite a while now. You and many other sewist-bloggers have inspired me to start my own blog. Hopefully I will get it up and running soon.

    I would also like to thank you for your commitment to your blog, your consistency with posting and your interesting and inspirational posts. Your blog was one of the first sewing blogs I discovered and you helped me ressurect my sewing mojo.

  8. I also think I have posted before and I have been following your blog privately but have joined up as follower.

    I also thank you for your blogging which shares the ability to change your TNT dress to some outstanding garments. You are getting my thoughts working on what I might be able to achieve.

    Thank you.

  9. Congratulations of your 4th Anniversary!!!! I have only followed your blog for a little over a year - but I read every post you write - and have read many of the archived ones as well. You are one of only 3 I follow daily. Thank you soooo very much for your time and effort - and being real for us. Sure I would like to win something :) but I would have congratulated you any way.
    Blessings to you and your family,
    Patti

I really enjoy everything you share about sewing, your creative approach and use of tnt patterns. The idea of possibly owning something from your stash is over the top! Thanks for all of the wonderful things you share, so many have benefited from your blog.

  15. I don't need to be in the drawing; but all the same I wanted to say happy blog anniversary! Your blog is one of the most instructive and inspiring imo; especially since you strike such a good balance between sewing a working wardrobe, and yet very interesting details.

  51. Happy Blogging Anniversary! I'm so happy that you blog and I blog and that we became friends as a result.
    My 5 yr will be Aug 28 - remind me if I'm off forgetting, ok?
    Oh, and don't even think about putting me in the drawing ;)
    Someone who has less stuff already certainly deserves to win these lovely sewing items.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Happy Anniversary and thank you for sharing about what you know about sewing and life in general

    ReplyDelete
  53. Congratulations on your anniversary!

    As you know, you were the inspiration for me to start my own blog, too.


    Well...I follow you using Feedblitz not Blogger because Feedblitz allows me to get you via email which Blogger doesn't and I also have you in my Google Reader. So, there are a lot of us who follow you but may not be showing up on your radar (and aren't necessarily lurkers). Have you considered setting up Feedburner?

    Anyway, congrats, again and I'm so proud of what you've been able to do with your blog (and you don't need to include me in your drawing...I'm still working off of the goodies given to me during Sewing Circle Extravaganzas!)!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm a lurker from waaay back! Your sewing site is the first one a read every morning, & I've enjoyed it so very much. I've learned a lot about sewing & life in general.
    You should be very proud of all the work you've done in the past four years!

  77. Happy Blogiversary! I just (in December) had my second anniversary. I forgot to make a big deal about it. Dang! It would have been a chance for a "give-away". Yours was one of the first blogs I started to read and maybe the first(don't hold me to that)that I actually "followed". And still one of the first I jump to when I go blog reading.
    You don't need to put on the give-away list. I have access to good stuff (G Street) and a sub to BWOF, so save it for the folks who can't get to nice shopping places. I just wanted to wish you a happy anniversary.

    ReplyDelete

  82. Happy Blogiversary as well! I just wanted to say congrats, and I continue going to your blog as soon as I see a new post. Don't put me in the drawing either, I am drowning in stash and I agree the goodies should go to a better home. Good for you for spreading the cheer! K

    ReplyDelete
  83. Thank you for 4 years of inspiration. Because of your inspiration I have perfected my TNT sheath and am beginning to use it to create my own ideas. I've learned a lot from you and you have helped me feel that it's OK to want to sew ALL THE TIME.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Out of lurkdom to post...4 years! Holy smokes! I have read your blog since the old Sewing World days. I absolutely love your clothes and you have influenced many a pattern purchase. I had to laugh at myself the other day when you posted the Vogue coat pattern with the wide collar. I immediately went to the BMV sale to place my order and went to my room to get my wallet, glanced at myself in the mirror and thought what am I thinking! I have shoulders like a football player and that look just wouldn't work for me. BUT because it was on your list it was hard to resist. I just looked through the posts for this year and what a nice testament to your TNT dress pattern. That alone should be an encouragement for all of us to put in the effort to get our basic patterns to fit just right.

    Thanks for sharing your journeys and Happy blog-a-versary.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Wow, four years! I only 'discovered' you last year, but it's been really inspiring to wander back through older posts and to learn from your experiences and that of the people that comment. Here's to another four and many more years!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Congratulations on 4 years! I have enjoyed your posts and often find myself looking forward to seeing what is new with your sewing.

  89. Carolyn, I'd leave a comment even if you weren't offering a prize!

    I have so enjoyed reading your 'blog from the very first post. In fact, I remember commenting on it on Sewing World back in the day, saying that you should write for Threads, you do it so well. I still believe that to be true.

    Happy anniversary, my friend!

  136. Just wanted to say thanks for talking about TNT patterns. Your persistent use of these patterns in new and different ways has shown me their strength. And some days I just don't have the energy to fit a new pattern. So, now, thanks to you, I will go first to something I have made before and loved...and tweak it so it doesn't look the same 2nd time around.

  142. Happy Blogiversary, Carolyn! You've provided a lot of good inspiration to me over the years. Keep it coming! LOL

    And I wondered how I ended up with "Followers" on my blog. Didn't know there WAS such a feature. See what I mean about the inspiration. LOL
