{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
