Craftsy Blogger Awards


Craftsy just announced their first ever Blogger Awards to “celebrate creative bloggers who have truly inspired us through their original content, vivid imagery and exceptional online personas”.

Recently I told a friend that you won’t get 100% of the things you don’t ask for. So I’m taking my own advice and asking you to please nominate me for the sewing category, with the best photography specialty. It would mean the world to me, and also to William, for us to be recognized for all the heart and soul we put into Lucky Lucille!


Click here to nominate me!

You can nominate as many bloggers as you’d like, including the amazing instructors on Craftsy. Every time you nominate a blogger, you get entered in a drawing to win a free class!

The nominations start now and end on October 14th. The nominees for each category will be announced on October 15th and then the real voting will begin!

You must be logged in to Craftsy to cast your nomination but it’s free to sign up.


Thank you for reading and supporting my little part of the sewing community.

    Done! You totally deserve it–your photography (and mad sewing skills) continue to inspire me!

    Oh, and I just bought a skirt off The Paraders that looks the yellow one in your photo, because I’m a silly copy-cat and want your outfit. :)
