Whew, what a week! Work has been a whirlwind of big clents and lot’s of meetings and I’ve been a super busy blogger too! I’ve enjoyed guest posting on Black Eiffel as well and in case you missed any of the posts you can check them out here: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

I’ve also been trying to recruit more friends and family to help vote for my Better Homes & Garden’s mask in hopes that I could pull out of last place but to no avail. There’s still plenty of time so I’m not giving up hope just yet! Get your votes in here and vote daily if you remember – many thanks!

Yesterday’s giveaway announcement was a huge success, shutting the site down momentarily with such a high volume of traffic. Always a good problem to have but apologies if you weren’t able to get through. And in more exciting news, I forgot to mention that from now until September 30th, Twig & Thistle readers receive a discount when purchasing a Silhouette Craft Cutter. Use the promo code: TWIG at checkout.

Buy a machine and receive the following:

Some Exciting News!

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Happy Monday to you all! I have two really exciting things to share today so I’ll get right to it. The first announcement has been so hard to keep quiet but I am so thrilled to announce that yours truly will be part of a Halloween/Fall feature in Better Homes & Gardens! Three other bloggers and myself were asked to contribute and take part in an online contest where we’ll each create four designs based around a specific concept. Our first project (sneak peek above) is scheduled to appear in the October issue due on newsstands September 5! Each project will be voted on by online readers and the Better Homes & Garden’s Staff to select an ultimate winner. The blogger that wins the entire contest will then be featured in next years issue along with another Fall themed project.

I have some seriously talented competition and am beyond humbled to be part of this exciting event. I never, in a million years, thought I’d be featured in such an iconic magazine nor be competing with several of my favorite bloggers! The other three are: Nicole Balch of Making It Lovely, Elizabeth Owen of Mabel’s House, and Suzonne Stirling of Urban comfort. I’ve already seen of what they’ve been up to and I can honestly say that the butterflies are starting to flutter. These ladies have got some skillz so it will be a challenge for sure! I’ll be sharing more about each of the projects as I go and shamelessly asking for votes as well. I hope I can live up to the task and maybe win one or two rounds. Keep your fingers crossed for me and stay tuned!


The next bit of news is about the posts for this week. I will be taking some much needed vacation and have asked my good friend Tara Lee to hold down the fort while I’m away. You probably all remember her ADORABLE circus themed letterpressed baby shower invites from awahile back. Well, she’ll be here starting tomorrow, sharing more of her creative projects and design inspiration for the rest of the week!

Tara is such an inspiration to me creatively and she really is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known. You’ll be in great hands so please join me in welcoming her to Twig & Thistle! Check back tomorrow for Tara’s first post.
