dreams and a give-away


i am over the moon to be able to share this news with you. i want to scream it from the rooftops - I AM PUBLISHED! beginning february 1st, you can find linwood avenue within the covers of the 3rd volume of apron•ology produced by the lovely people at stampington. a big thank you to beth livesay, apron•ology's editor, for pulling together a beautiful collaboration. i read this mag cover to cover the moment it arrived - it is filled with so many beautiful pieces, you won't be disappointed. one of my favorites is the farmhouse apron from sweet magnolias farm. check them out here. i also adore the apron merit badges on page 40, such a great idea!


to celebrate this little accomplishment of mine, i am running a giveaway - the winner will receive an apron of their choice from my shop. i will contact the winner and at that time, they can let me know which apron they choose. the contest will run for a week and close midnight EST february 7th. how do you enter? it's 2 simple steps...

2. leave me a comment letting me know what you would use your apron for. ie: crafting, gardening, teaching, you name it, i want to know!
