Welcome to CraftyCat! In this post I'm taking part in the Grow Your Blog party organized by Vicki at 2 Bags Full. I started this blog several years ago to showcase my crafting endeavors, and I think I've accomplished that. If you look through past posts, you'll see that I've covered all sorts of craftiness -- jewelry making, sewing, crocheting, beading, scrapbooking, framing, holiday stuff and decorating. There are even some baked goods in there somewhere. And cats. Yes, I know that cats don't constitute a crafting adventure, but there they are anyway. I love all of this stuff, but my favorite hobby is cross stitch. Stitching supplies take up a lot of space in the craftroom, and I always have at least one (ahem, ok, more than one) project going.
Blogging has also allowed me to become a part of a community where I have learned new things, craft-oriented or not. Plus I have some wonderful followers who offer all kinds of encouraging comments. My hope is that my followers and all readers of my blog can learn something from me, and just have fun when visiting. I can be snarky and goofy, and I can also be sappy and sentimental. My aim is to make my sense of humor evident in my writing to keep things interesting. So even if someone isn't a crafter, they still might find something here that they'll enjoy.
In honor of the Grow Your Blog party, I've decided to have a little giveaway. I used my jewelry-making skills to create this beaded bracelet to be given away in a drawing.
If you want to enter the drawing for this bracelet, just leave a comment on this post. That's it. Oh, and you'll probably want to give me an e-mail address so that I can contact you if you win. You don't have to be a follower to enter. The drawing will take place on February 1, 2013. Good luck!
Thanks for stopping by! Become a follower of CraftyCat, or just check in once in a while. Either way, I hope you'll find this a fun place to visit.
