Today I am taking the First step in making my blog the InterActive blog of my (and hopefully yours, too!) dreams!
If you remember my promise last month, you have been expecting Something.. I didn't give many hints. ;)

This is the "Practice Run" and I will make changes and updates as necessary.

I think the first thing that has to happen, aside from the Idea (Light Bulb!), is to put it into motion and see how it goes!
Big Surprise, I like to jump in with both feet.. haha
I have been running over ideas in my head and it just seemed like I needed to get into it to really make any actual decisions.. It will also help me to see what is good/bad about the decisions that I have made already!

So...Here Goes Nothin'

InterActive ScrapChat is something that I came up with as a way for Quilters and Sewests to come together and have (possibly) a whole group conversation!

 A Fun community to share your projects and all that comes with them! Happy, excited, sad and frustrating! Stop in and chat with people that enjoy your love for sewing! Share pictures of your projects or that Awesome fabric you came across! Encourage others and be encouraged! What have YOU made lately!? Show us!! 


The idea that you can enter a discussion with others to get their help or ideas on a project that you are working on, or even just chit chat about nothing that matters at all, sounds like a really neat one to me!

You know what!?
I found the PERFECT platform for it on Disqus.com! 
The direct link is https://disqus.com/home/channel/interactivescrapchatwamyscrapspot/
If your not familiar with Disqus; it is a great website that allows you to "create a channel" and discuss what you want!
You can also find some really cool channels on there that discuss just about anything!

I can't believe it took me so long to realize that I was ALREADY a member of that awesome site and it allows me to do EXACTLY what I want! Duhh moment.. haha
I can post a topic, or YOU can, then everyone will see it and they can comment back or create a new topic, right there!
It allows even my readers to post pictures right into their comments.
It really is just what I was looking for!

I hope that you will come on over and give it a shot.
I'm really enjoying the conversations that I'm having there and it really is Super InterActive!!
Can't wait to see you!


I am literally dancing in my chair over this!! =D

  3. I'm Kristine in Pennsylvania close to Philly. I have 2 kids and one on the way and love crafting sewing and quilting when I get any free time! I teach piano lessons and love to hike and hope to launch my own blog someday when I figure out what I could contribute to the conversation. I have seen various chat boards and forums come and go so I'd be interested what you could do with the scrapchat that would keep it active and updated.

  9. Thank you all so much for posting your fun facts, it is so great to get to know everyone a bit better! I have had a thought on the whole InterActive ScrapChat idea and I'm going to create a post detailing it a bit better - but, I created a community on Disqus.com At - https://disqus.com/home/channel/interactivescrapchatwamyscrapspot/
    If you copy and paste that into your browser you can follow the discussion and I think it will be 100% better than comments here on the post! * You will probably have to create an account - I hope it isn't too big of a pain for anyone, but it will be a lot better! <3

  12. Hi, I like this ScrapChat. My name is Danette and I love quilting and sewing. Unfortunately, my sewing machine is out of commission for a couple weeks and I don't know what to do with myself. Although, I have been cutting, cutting, and cutting. I need to call and bug the place that has my sewing machine hostage.

I truely enjoy your comments and questions and I answer every single one! =D
Though, during giveaways it gets difficult and I try to keep it easy on myself. ;)
However, if you are a no-reply blogger I can't -but I still try. =(
If your not sure, ask me, I'll help you fix it!
