Hello? It’s me.

If you’re a blogger and you don’t post anything for a while, it becomes really intimidating to start up again. Especially if you quickly calculate that it has been nearly seven months since your last post. Self-Doubt creeps in–along with its BFF, Fear,–making your palms sweat and your stomach ache until you’re deemed inadequate.

What will people think? Will they even remember me? Do they really even care?

That’s how it goes, for me anyway.

Then comes the moment I realize people are way too distracted with their own lives to even be aware of or care about my lack of posting.

I get over myself, suck it up, and rejoin the blogosphere with one, quick motion. Just like ripping off a Band-Aid.

I make no excuse for my neglect, but I do apologize and hope you’ll forgive me. And if you don’t, I’m hoping you can be bribed with the chance to win an $80 PayPal cash card.

I’ve joined some other really talented bloggers to offer this fun giveaway, so if you’re looking for a new recipe or need a tutorial on the latest trendy craft, hit up their blogs directly, or check out their regular posts on My Cooking Spot and My Crafty Spot. Scroll down to find the Rafflecopter link to enter the drawing.

And I promise I’ll post again soon. We’re headed out for our first family camping trip tomorrow (and my first ever), which should provide some good writing material at my expense.

Silhouette Portrait giveaway: Nov. 5-Nov. 26

Since the stress-ridden holidays are creeping up on the horizon, how about treating yourself to a little something first? And, by the way, this amazing little treat is absolutely free so there will be zero chance of any buyer’s remorse.

No guilt. No excuses. Nothing to justify. Nothing to lose. So read on, my friends.

Hardcore crafters may already be familiar with the Silhouette brand and their line of hard-working electronic die-cutting machines. For those who are less familiar, let me give you a quick overview.

These little die-cutters make everyday craft projects a breeze. From custom invitations, school projects, stencils and stamps, to making vinyl decals and even cutting fabric, the Silhouette is a DIYer’s dream machine.

So when the crafty contributors at My Crafty Spot suggested hosting a giveaway for a Silhouette Portrait Cutter machine, I jumped at the chance to be involved.

Oh, what you can make with this machine! I’m not being dramatic when I say it will totally change the way you DIY and craft.



This amazing giveaway is brought to you by the fabulous contributors of My Crafty Spot and Silhouette! Feel free to check out any of these fabulous bloggers and their amazing blogs!
