More sewn goodies …oh and a contest!

I wrote a post last night about our house. It is long. I’ll post it soon, but I have to find a few pictures to break up the boringness. So I wanted to write something for today. This one will have pretty pictures! I LOVE seeing everything that you have made!

Adorable outfits for Tammy’s girls.

Fun beach bag by Abbadabbabags. It is lined with Laminated Cotton! Such a cool idea. 🙂

Guess what! Quiltville was featured on Sandi Henderson’s blog today! SO COOL!!!!! I am so happy for her! You should go check it out when you get a chance 🙂

Have you noticed a few changes on my blog recently? I hired my friend, Cat, to make a new banner for me and the little side buttons. They are great, don’t you think? I’m trying to decide if I want to pay to have the CSS customized for a prettier background. What do you think? And I’m adding a section in my sidebar that will link to my customer’s handmade sites. I already have a few shops listed and I’m working on more! If you want to be added – send me your info!

YEAH! Here is the contest! I have the section on my blog called Customer’s Shops. B-O-R-I-N-G – I need something clever and fun to call that section. So submit your idea and I’ll enter you into a contest. Or submit a comment at least -even if you can’t come up with a name. 🙂 I’ll leave it open for a few days – maybe until the weekend…or if you know me, it’ll likely be longer than that!

I always have a hard time deciding what you should win…so I’ll give away a few prizes. The winning entry plus I’ll randomly pick 2 other comments!

Winning entry – $15 Gift Certificate to my website

Random drawings – fat quarter surprises

What fun, don’t you think?!?!?! Be sure to leave me a way I can contact you. Thanks!

    Oh my- I’m the first to comment-I guess I better post a good suggestion, since the random number generators seldomly pick 1.

    Maybe you could call it “Creative Customers”… that still lets you know that the links are connected to people who buy from you 🙂

    I think you could call it “Creative Customers” or “Fabulous Fabric Creations”

  3. 3 Melanie August 7, 2008 at 12:42 pm

    That is a fantastic idea!!!! Thanks for posting!

    Oh, I’m so not good at naming stuff. I really like “creative customers”, though.
    Maybe… “From the imaginations of my clients”

    Here is all I can come up with, although I wouldn’t even vote for mine… I like Creative Customers best…

    Fabulous Fabric Formations (like FFF fabric family fun)
    Client Creations
    Productive Patrons
    Buyer Boutiques

    I am embarrassed for even posting these.

    Don’t be embarrassed! I’ve had a couple emails with ideas too. Maybe I should post them here for all to see?!?!?!?

    Shop Hop?
    Shopper-Keepers? (they’re like shoppers AND shopkeepers)
    Productive Purchasers?
    Readymaids? ( guess that would only work if all the shops are owned by ladies)

    Shopper keepers – school is on my brain – does that remind you of trapper keepers?!?!? I really like school and office supplies. 🙂

    Clearly I can’t win this but I LOVE ‘Creative Customers’. It’s cute but still very clear what it’s all about. It has my vote!
