I have been participating in this awesome *New Quilters Blog Hop- 2017 Edition* to try and better my blog and check out how I "measure up"!
This year's activities are hosted by Yvonne of Quilting Jet Girl, Leanne of She Can Quilt, and Beth of Cooking Up Quilts. Thank you SO much ladies, for your time, effort and patience through this wonderful Hop that you have so generously began for our benefit!
If your checking me out for the first time, from the hop, Thank You so much, I hope you enjoy my post and decide to follow me!If you are a current follower of mine, keep reading to get a glimpse into how I got "here"!
Isn't our logo sweet?! We had some great choices to choose from and this cute little guy won. =)
Anyway, on to the dirt! ;)
Hi! My name is Amy- As I am sure you guessed ;) I live in Michigan with my husband and 2 boys and also a sweet bundle of joy, coming soon-ish..haha
My blog name was just something I thought up on the spur of the moment. I like interesting names and word play is just fun! It is very convenient that my scrappy name also works very well for quilting, I think! ;D
I began my blog in 2012. Wow.. Seems like forever ago, now. haha
I was a single mom of 2 boys (4 and 8 years old).
I got so bored at night, when the kids were in bed that I started scrap booking.
I quickly discovered blogging and decided to spice up my scrapping by sharing my creations! Here are a couple of my favorite things..
Everyone has such different styles and seeing them is really neat!
I created A channel at Disqus.com to connect on a completely different level! Stop by and leave a comment or project that you are working on, we would love to see it!
I will end this post with the best tip that I can think of...
Always check your measurements before you cut!
I have had to re cut countless things because I had the measurement wrong :(
Also, if you think something isn't quite right, give it a bit of thought on how it will affect the outcome of your project! Sometimes you will find that something being a little 'off' won't make a big difference, or you can make it up elsewhere ;)
I sincerely thank you for visiting my blog and encourage you to check ouSheCanQuiltt the other hop stops along the way!
