This has been a very good week. Why, you ask? This week three rock star lady bloggers featured my work on their blogs. Seriously. I know. I was as shocked as you are. You could have knocked me over with a proverbial feather.

First Rosie, from Fabric Shopper Online, highlighted the pillows I made last week. I remember when Rosie first commented on my blog about a year and a half ago. I was so honored that someone of Rosie's "blogger status" would leave a comment on one of my posts. I even called my daughter to tell her about it! Rosie really is an amazing lady and loves fabric almost as much as I do. Go check out her blog, Fabric Shopper Online, to learn more about new fabric collections, where to buy them, and fun sewing projects!

Then on Tuesday, to my surprise, my pillows were featured as a "Frugalicious Friday Feature" on Finding Fabulous! I'm sure most of you read this blog on a daily basis. It's one of my favorites. I especially love the Frugalicious Friday Posts, however, each one of Jane's DIY and craft posts are worth serious contemplation. I'm learning a lot. For example, here's a post from this week that I loved. Makes me want to hit all the Goodwill stores in the area and stock up on chairs!

Finally, today I received a text message from my daughter-in-law. It said, "Did you see that "Be Different Act Normal" highlighted your cupcake totes?" My jaw dropped. To the floor. Then I squealed. Loudly. I love this blog. Check out this pinata that is featured today. It's gorgeous. It was inspired by a camellia. (The "creative pinata wagon" obviously passed me by because the pinatas I've made over the years have been inspired by pigs, Santa, and mice.) I bookmarked this post because I want to create a pillow with this flowery feel. This blog is pure inspiration. Love it!

Anyway, I'm very appreciative of these kind ladies that featured my work this week. Not only is it wonderful to know that your projects are appreciated in some way, but these features translate to tangible sales in my Etsy shop. Ergo -- I owe you, ladies. Thank you so much!
