Chubby Baby Car Seat Cover GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!

If you know me at all, you know my youngest son rides in a pink carseat. As much as it used to make me wince and get him out quickly before anyone saw now I'm used to it. However, if I were to win one of these I would be very happy!

Blogsition time?

I have been thinking for quite some time about transitioning my blog to more of a hobby blog instead of a family album type thing. Here's the thing...

If I transition my blog in to a hobby blog, mainly sewing, then I feel as though there is more pressure to come up with fun and entertaining things to post. I would also love to host some giveaways and tutorials, but I hear there are new rules in the blog world about all that.

I know that currently I may only have a very limited number of readers. Mostly family and friends, so that means that a change would also mean a whole new readership that will come from ??? Well I don't know if they'll come at all. Which also means I'd have to put a lot more time in to the blog in order to make it something random people interested in sewing would want to take time to read.

I love blogs like Grosgrain where she has almost weekly giveaways and is super creative. She makes many of the things she gives away and occasionally has a tutorial.

Then there is ModKid blog of fabric and pattern designer, Patty Young. She of course is fabulously creative and her posts always entail her adventures as a designer. And who doesn't want to see what it takes to create your own line of fabric and patterns?

Gertie's Blog for Better Sewing is another one of my favorites. She is working through a book of vintage Vogue patterns and always has great tips. She is very witty and super gorgeous! It is so much fun to see her creations!

So if I were to aspire to have a sewing blog I would want it to be a combination of the three of these. I know these women put a lot of time and thought in to their posts. They have great pictures, and well thought out writings.

This is really me just thinking out loud here, but perhaps I will begin to transition. Maybe not....

Until then!
