I read A LOT of crafty blogs. I love them all but there is one thing I hate about a bunch of them...
Some of them are really successful, that's not what I hate, I admire that and I'm happy for them. Some of them are so successful that companies send them free products to test out.
Here's what I hate, when my favorite crafty blog gets a new tool that there's no way I can purchase. It means they'll start doing all these amazing projects that I can't re-create. There are two items specifically that I would love to own but never will, one being the Silhouette. It's a digital cutting tool, you can cut vinyl or make cute fabric transfers, the options are endless. Make It and Love It got one and keeps making the best looking projects. She also just got this cool device called an Accuquilt. I'm not a quilter but this little machine makes me want to become one. If you are a quilter you may not want to look at this project, the envy will set in. I can just imagine all the great things she'll do with this.
Lastly is all the blogs that get free canvas prints sent to them. I love the look of your photos turned into Canvas but it's just so darn pricey.
In general I don't enter giveaways. The chances of winning are super slim and it does nothing but get my hopes up, these awesome products are good enough that I go ahead and enter and then I'm sad when someone else wins. Maybe one day I'll be the lucky one.
