{creating community on this blog <3}

I always love when I find a reader or blogger online that I can really relate + connect with. {Hello! All of my Minnesota friends were found through this blog, which is so awesome.}

Yesterday I had coffee with a budding entrepreneur and as we talked I told her that I wouldn’t be sitting with her if it weren’t for community and the generosity of others. True story; read about that here.

Community is one of my favorite parts of my blog // this job. I’m making one of my goals for 2011 be to connect with more people daily and weekly.


Will you help me? >> If you have a minute, can you please answer these 4 questions about yourself? And if you remember, come back tomorrow and read through the comments left. Maybe you’ll find a reader that you’ll be able to connect with, too :]

Here are the questions:
1. what is your name and blog/shop URL?
2. what is your blog or shop about?
3. share something fun about yourself.
4. what is something that’s a “favorite”?

*

I’ll go first and answer them :]
1. Gussy — www.gussysews.com and www.shopgussy.com
2. sewing ruffles; blog/biz how-to posts; craft/handmade features & giveaways; our pup, Bauer
3. when zack was visiting {and getting ready to propose} he had to find new hiding places all evening for my ring because he knew i was snooping around, wishing&hoping for the proposal to come true ;]
4. i looooooove to sit outside with sunglasses on and just relax!

Lisa Leonard recently shared tips on creating/establishing community, as did Allora Handmade. Hope you read them! ;]

*


PS. LOOK at this — that’s sewing machine #2! Zack’s grandma gave me my first machine for Christmas two years ago and this time we were in Michigan I bought the above machine from her. I can’t wait to re-arrange my studio {on my list for today!} and get both machines set up. yeow :]

Pretty please with a ruffle on top, remember to answer the 4 questions

    3. something fun about myself is that i know my boyfriend is going to propose in the next couple of weeks – we are terrible about keeping secrets. plus he went on a major spending freeze the past few months to pay for the ring-so when we stopped going out on dates and he took the bus everywhere i knew something was up. i’m practicing patience and not snooping because i know the ring is in his closet of his {studio} apartment!

    ~Heather, here! http://www.ACupofTeaWithHeatherLee.blogspot.com
    ~My blog is somewhat of a diary I have kept since coming back home in 2008. It has kept a lot of my friends I have made around the world more connected with what’s going on in my life.
    ~I’m a newlywed (Last July!) and am loving every second of it! We’re still in college so neither of us have married friends yet…a lot of people think we’re crazy for getting married so young (22 and 23 isn’t THAT young, right?) but we don’t care. ;)
    ~Sipping a delicious cup of coffee in the morning is my favorite part of the day. If I miss this time in the AM I feel like my day started on the wrong foot!

    Hi, all! 1. Steph, and I have two blogs:
    http://howtohostess.wordpress.com/ and http://3pmu.wordpress.com/
    2. The How to Hostess is about…hostessing! I love parties and all
    the planning, cooking, and crafting that comes with them. 3PMU is
    short for 3 PM Pick Me Up, I post something fun at 3 PM every
    weekday to break up afternoon monotony. 3. Instead of New Year’s
    resolutions, I make a list of 12 things I have never done and then
    check one off every month. This past year included singing karaoke
    (very badly), baking a pie from scratch (tasty, but not pretty),
    and going to a country western bar (fun!). 4. Sunday mornings, our
    local rock station plays all 80′s rock songs. They call it
    Resurrection Sunday and I love it!

    I’m Kate, and I blog about food, recipes and cooking but with personal stories and memoirs slipped in. I’ll throw in a few pinches of family for flavor, add a dash of life to keep it interesting and occasionally an ingredient or two that surprises. I like to keep people entertained. And fed.

    Something fun about myself is that I’m ambidextrous for everything except writing. I’m working on that one though.

    Favorites? Telling a story and sharing a food memory that reaches right into a readers soul and touches them profoundly.

    My website is http://www.gathered-sown.com. My business is handcrafted bags & things. I love the creativity I’m able to express every day, while making money to help support my family. This is the first year where both of my daughters (babies as I see them!) are in school full time, so I’ve found that my business is following accordingly…I have more time to sew, I sell more stuff. Yay!

    Something fun? I am a really bad cook. I mean really bad. And I have kids, so I hate to admit most of their meals come from a can, frozen bag or, on a really bad day…a box! I love to freezer cook with friends, to steal ideas, and tips, so if anyone blogs about that…..:)

    What do I love? My girlfriends! The ladies God placed in my life as encouragement, support and accountablilty has been nothing short of amazing. I love my husband, but lets face it, he can never be my girlfriend ;)

Something fun…I’ve known my husband since I was 14, we dated off & on in high school, didn’t talk for 5 years, ran into each other and married 7 mths later :) I love creating things: sewing, knitting, trying to crochet, baking, etc.

    Jenilee – http://the-goodwinfamily.blogspot.com

    I blog about homeschooling, my girls, the fun and crazy events of our lives as a family and as pastors.

    Something fun? I can not sew at ALL and I do love seeing the things you create! Weird thing – my HUSBAND can sew and has a machine. But, he only bought it to sew some clothes for Rangers (like boy scouts) and then a puppet curtain for church (we are children’s pastors). He is amazing like that. All of them were perfect. His first time sewing. Amazing.

    I love reading, blogging, family and sitting with friends over coffee. So sad to have missed your panera get together! :(

    Hello!! My name is Emily Smolak
    My blog is Sassy Smolak http://www.sassysmolak.com
    It’s mainly about life, me, music, fun finds, and being crazy. That doesn’t really narrow it down does it. Well, let’s just say it is rad :).
    Something fun about me: Everything….no I am just kidding. Umm, I am a HUGE neat freak. I mean I face all the labels in the cabinets to the front and line up my towels I think it’s hilarious when I catch myself doing it. I think it might be a little OCD, but whatever at least my husband doesn’t mind.
    A favorite: Can a person be my favorite thing! My father. He is so near and dear to me!! I would say that and my liberty of london for Target mug. I was only able to find one and I use it every morning for my coffee. It is my favorite for sure!

    1. My name is Samantha and you can find me at my blog, Two Become One.
    2. I intended for my blog to be about my adventures as a newlywed, although most of my posts have to do with crafts and home remodeling and such. I really just blog about my daily adventures in life after college with my husband and two four-legged kiddos, Bronx and Torre.
    3. Something fun about me- Idunno. I’m one of those people has more interests than my life can handle, and although I’m good at a lot of things, I’m not really great at anything. My husband would say I have the biggest heart in the world because I cry for anyone that is sad. He thinks my mom and I should own stock in Kleenex. And we probably should.
    4. I have lots of favorites. I could name one in all sorts of categories, but I’ll keep it simple. I love to bake. I’m not much for cooking (raw meat makes me puke) but if it includes sugar and flour, I’m all over it. My favorite thing to bake is cupcakes. I also love photography and my new Silhouette!! Oh, and I would love to be a general contractor. I like manual labor, but unfortunately I work in marketing right now. *Sigh* Maybe one day….

    1. Howdy! I’m Draya Ann from http://www.sayanything2me.blogspot.com
    2. My blog is just a bit of a jumble of life and stuff I find that is pretty. Now added to the mix is being pregnant for the first time and all that fun stuff that comes with that.
    3. When my husband and I were at the hospital for an overnight visit to monitor my blood pressure we were looking at the nursery full of new babies and he must have gotten a bit excited with seeing them all cause he slammed his head into the nursery glass! He was just too excited for all the babies!
    4. A fav for me is riding in the car and singing along with whatever pops up on the iPod. I’m a horrible singer but my husband just cruises along like I’m singing right on key!

    My etsy shop!

    2) Since my passion is hospitality, homekeeping and all that goes with it that’s what my blog is about, and any funny snippets and thoughts about life in general thrown in the mix too. My shop is (or will be) mainly bags, tags, and girly stuff.

    3) I love children’s programs (confession: Mainly to see which child embarrasses their parents! LOL) I own so many quilts, my family could easily survive a nuclear winter…and I live in Florida!

    4) Favorite? Strawberries, quilts and hearts!

    3. I have to watch Everybody Loves Raymond almost everynight before bed. It’s like my comfort blankie.
    4. Spending an entire day sewing and getting so involved you forget to eat or use the restroom :/, but it feels so good and rewarding in the end, anyway.

    My name is Jeanette (www.sweetjeanette.com) and though my shop is new My etsy shop!
    I plan to “launch” it in March. There are things in the shop right now, but I’m working on making new things.

    My passion is being a homekeeper and helpmate to my husband. I think my blog reflects that. I love to show hospitality, an avid baker (my other blog is realwomeneat.com) and I like to throw in some funny snippets I find, as well as thoughts and ponderings in life. It’s my goal to make my blog an oasis, and a place we can have some great “girl time” together.

    I love going to children’s programs (more so to see which child is going to embarrass their parents! LOL)

    My faves…. oh that’s a loaded one… I have way too many, but at the tippy top of the list would have to be strawberries, hearts and quilts!

    Hi! :) My name is Shelbey. My blog is http://www.theblissfullyblessedwife.blogspot.com and my etsy shop is http://www.meandminnie.etsy.com
    My blog is about my new life as a wife and soon to be mother in May. Home decor, crafts, home improvement projects, coupons and sites to save on, life, recipes, my Christian faith, my family….and a bit of randomness thrown in.
    I am only 21…a young one, so they say. My husband is 9 years older than me and sometimes he thinks I am more mature than him, haha!
    My craft room. It’s finally all set up. I just received a sewing machine for my birthday in November and my husband bought me a Silhouette machine for my Christmas gift. I am very excited about learning how to use both of these machines and add to my crafting ability.

    2. My blog is about my life as a student affairs professional, newly wed, and living in Boston. I share recipes, things I make (crafts) and stories about our puppy, Milton (9 mos. old).
    3. I love Boston and finding out new historic facts about it, I always think I’m going to be better at trivia than I actually am. I follow major league sports out of habit and my husband rarely knows any type of score/sports stat.
    4. Lately, I enjoy a mug of hot cocoa with whipped cream (been drinking a lot over the holidays). I love food and trying new things and the fact that my husband cooks a lot of GOOD food is definitely a favorite!
