What?? No feature?!

Yes, that is entirely my fault lol. I keep forgetting what day it is. So therefore, I'm not giving my features enough time to fill out the questionnaire! And since I *just* realized it was Friday about 10 minutes ago, I really don't think I'll find someone to answer the questions fast enough!

So what shall I talk about today??




First off, I haven't had much time to do the "Wednesday How-to"'s but that's probably obvious! I'm working on another card "Deck the Halls", I had to do a magazine spread (Funnily enough it was a how-to) for a brand new magazine launching this December for young girls (when I have more info, I'll post you all links to their online site!) I had to do a short little photoshoot, AND I'm desperately trying to make christmas presents! Being as I'm so incredibly poor lol, I'm trying my darndest to make some really great gifts for the fam this year. I won't divulge any info because well, then they'll read about it and know!

Oh and here's something I completely forgot to mention! Oy. I was supposed to write another blog about these like, LAST WEEK! Oh wait, make that 2 weeks ago! What the crap is the date today? Anyways,  I was featured on 2 blogs!!! Firstly, my duster mitts were featured on TKDesigns4U Blog. I highly suggest checking out this blog, She's not only incredibly talented herself (check out her Etsy Shop!!), but she finds amazing products to feature on a regular basis, and she must have great taste, because I love all of it! (HA I bet you all were thinking I was gonna say "She has great taste, because she picked something of mine"!!)


Secondly, my Giveaway for 10 Christmas Cards was featured on the blog The Naughty Penguin. I am in love with this blog! I met Jennie on MyCraftCorner, and she had started the Creative Bloggers Group. She's also an amazing artisan who does a lot of graphic design - so anything you need for your twitter, blogs, etsy, head on over to Jennie's site and check it out. The Naughty Penguin has tons of info on just about everything. Jennie also just recently launched her "The Naughty Penguin" Facebook Fan page!




What else what else.. OH! Okay, so I've always stood by my view of Craftgawker being the snobs of the crafting world lol. Bitter much? Yes, 3 of my fave photos were not accepted, and I was feeling dejected. Plus, I never got that many views with the one that was accepted, so hey, I don't see them as that big a deal. There's been a lot of talk lately on some different views about Craftgawker, and I figured, what the hell, I'll give it another shot. So I submitted 2 photos and guess what? They were BOTH accepted! Whaaaa? I was shocked. I still haven't gotten any views from them, but hey. Atleast my work is out there. So I can't complain about that!

You can view my submissions that made it: Clematis, Daisy and Poppy.

In yet some more news (Y'know, maybe it would be a good idea to actually blog a little more often! Hmm... There's a thought!) One of my photos has been proudly displayed at a busy local restaurant along with my business cards! The owner absolutely LOVED it, woohoo! Here's to hoping for some local sales!



Okay, one more thing... I met Aik when she entered my last giveaway, and I love her blog - she always has something great going on, has fabulous book reviews and hosts tons of giveaways! I highly suggest you head on over and check out her blog Friends and Family. This morning I awoke to find a wonderful email from Aik, saying that I was chosen for an award!!! That's so sweet! So here's the award I got..





And now, I need to pass it on to 15 other Lovely Bloggers! Here are the rules if you are chosen :)

Rules:
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

And I would LOVE to pass this award on to:


Alright everyone, I think that's it for now! (well, there's a lot more topics I'd like to get to, but I have too many things to do lol) Hope everyone has a great day!!!
