Sewing...

so i got sewing lessons for my birthday and haven't been able to take the lessons yet because of my treatments and school and life and kids and well ya know. so i was on the same street as the shop where i am supposed to take my sewing lessons and figure i would stop in and see what day and time would work best for teacher. as i am walking in the door i see a sign that says CLOSING just like that in all capitol letters and my heart drops into my stomach as i try and imagine taking lessons from a women who's shop is closing. i go inside and the lady that is in there is busy so i just started looking around and notice there are signs all over that say everything in the store is 50% off so i start grabbing fabrics, notions, trims, zippers, interfacing basically anything i could get my hands on. i got in line and when it was my turn i asked the lady about the sewing lessons that are paid and if i could still get them. she tells me that she probably won't be doing anything of the sort until the end of February or beginning of march. i am a little sad to hear this as i am ready to get busy. yet i understand that she can't keep a store open just because i have sewing lessons. so i gathered a few yards of fabric-nothing special all of the good stuff was picked over but i figure i am a beginner and don't want to ruin the 'good' fabric on a  messed up project!

i was surfing the net and found an amazing giveaway at lila tueller that i just have to enter because i have been teaching myself to sew via the internet and youtube videos and need some of the fabulous fabric for a project that i am going to be doing really soon.....a baby quilt for a special baby!!!

The Fab Five...




Thanks to Trop 50 for sponsoring my writing about fabulous bloggers. This year Trop50 is granting 50 fabulous wishes. Click here to enter for a chance to win $1,000 to help grant a friend's wish!

I haven't even hit the tip of the iceberg on all of the Fab blogs out there; I have met some awesome ladies & men while blogging. Whether I read their blogs daily, enter their giveaway's, chat with them about television shows on Twitter, am simply amazed by their abilities or they have helped me out with bloody HTML codes.

How do I define Fab? I think that a Fab blog/blogger is one who is giving of their time, and life but also has the spirit to help you grow with your blog. I feel like I am eclectic with my blogging and look for the same things in a blog. Spontaneous, fun, personal, exciting, surprising and oh yeah Fab!

Who are 'The Fab Five?'

Girl Gone Mom Heather is a married mother of 1. She is so fun and blogs about not only awesome reviews and giveaway's but her life-the struggles and joys of being a mom. She enjoys watching reality t.v and then tweeting about it(with yours truly) she has done some amazing things like*said in a whisper* been on the Martha Stewart Show!!!


Shrimp Salad Circus. Lindsay is a self called 'cat lady' with  2 cats Rosco & Mish. Lindsay is not only asweet heart she is also very talented. She will show you the most amazing tutorial then turn around and show you the most amazing vintage dress, coat, handbag or pair of shoes. She is a world traveler and compulsive nicknamer. It almost feels like she is related to me somehow?


Miss Mustard Seed An outstanding blog full of beautiful inspiration and design. It actually makes me a little bitter or jealous(okay both) that my house doesn't look like hers! She offers great inspiration and tutorials on how to make your home, projects or found pieces ah-ma-zing and she makes it look so easy!?


Dadventurous Troy is a dad hence the 'dad' in venturous. He is married to Jyl from Mom It Forward and has an amazingly funny, fun and informational blog. On his blog you will find some amazing reviews as well as giveaways but the stories are something that will make you feel as though your sitting around a camp fire or kitchen table and have known him for years!

Tatortots and Jello Jen is absolutely Fab! She is not only talented in the craft department but she also has an eye for other crafty people! She is very generous in sharing her tips, tricks and projects along with great tutorials that make you feel as though you can do it. She also hosts some fun fab giveaways that are unique, fun and outstanding.

If you follow them then you know how Fab they are and if you don't your missing out on some Fab people behind some of the most Fab blogs!

Don't forget to enter the 50 Fabulous Wishes contest for a chance to win $1,000 to support a friend's wish. I was selected for this Tropicana Trop50 sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do. I received compensation to use and facilitate my post.
