Blog Buddy...How To Comment On A Post

Image
I haven't had a post in the Blog Buddy feature in a while. Blog Buddy is a feature that helps with different aspects of blogging. Just click on the button over on the right for more posts and helpful tips. Although I have other ideas for more Blog Buddy posts, I have recently had many emails asking how to post a comment...especially on my give away post

Posting a comment on any blog is easy. Different blogs might have their comment section in different places, but the process is still the same. Some blogs have the comment section in a Pop Up window when you click the Comment word, or some have it embedded below the actual post when you click the word Comment and some show up next to the post on the right side.

Either way it's set up, the steps to comment are relatively the same...

Below each post is the word "Comment". Sometimes people have a little phrase before the word Comment too. There is also a number, which represents the number of comments that are there already…

Sharing a Blog and A Give Away...

Good morning every one. Thought I would share a great blog called Sunshine Quilting (click the red link to bring you there). Martina is celebrating her One Year Anniversary for blogging and is having a wonderful give away to celebrate. I would love it if you could pop over for a visit and say hi. Her give away is so cute, but also look around her whole blog. Wonder quilt inspirations!!

Well, I'm off to work...have a great day,

Join Me For Zlaty's Baby Shower...

Image
Many of you who have read and enjoyed Zlaty's blogknow that she is expecting a baby girl this month. I've only known Zlaty through blogging, but I'm so excited for her. I did a post a few months ago to invite any one who would like to make or buy her a little baby gift.

As you can see by the PINK button below, she is having a baby girl. For some color hints , she loves the color green and she is using light purple in the baby's room. For more color help, pop over to her blog (click here)and you will see some beautiful baby blocks that a group of friends are making for a baby quilt for her.

The tradition in Zlaty's family is to have a baby shower after the baby is born. I was thinking, if any one would like to send her a little gift, which will probably be in February...let me know and I will arrange an address for you to send it to her.

Leave a comment on this post if you are interested and when I have arranged the address with Zlaty I will email it to you. That way y…

Tool Time Tuesday...Door Design Wall

Image
Happy Tuesday one and all. Whether you play with fabric when designing a quilt or sewing a craft project or your children/grandchildren play with shapes and letters...today's Tool Time will help with all your projects and it's hidden away behind your door! The door is the best place for this...it's out of sight when you aren't using it, great for a room that's short on wall space and really I think everyone has a door!

I think we all have wreath hangers around, especially right after Christmas. I bought these 2 in the clearance section for only 68 cents a piece.




They're adjustable too.



You don't need the adjustable kind...any 2 wreath hangers will do.



I wish these weren't clear for the photo...


but you can still see that I've placed one on each side over the top of the door.



Now you can place an old curtain rod, pvc pipe, yard stick etc through a hem of a piece of flannel from the fabric store, a flannel sheet or a flannel backed table cloth that you have…

2 Year Anniversary Give Away...

UPDATE...THIS GIVE AWAY IS CLOSED...THANK YOU!

Happy Blogiversary to me!! January 14th, 2009 was the first day I started blogging. Wow, seems so long ago. The best part of these past 2 years are the all the wonderful friends I have made along the way. Some I have met in person, but sadly the majority I have not. My hope is to meet more of you in the future, but for now, emailing and blogging is such a great way to stay in touch.

To celebrate all of you...and for all you've done for me, I'm having a little give away...a red give away! I love red, it will be Valentine's Day next month and I found this super cute cupcake stand on clearance (you know I love a good clearance).




Little red kitchen towel...




A reusable tote bag, but squeezed inside a little bag the shape of a strawberry...adorable!




A little jar of red buttons...


A box of Valentine's Day zip lock bags...



a fat quarter of heart fabric...



and the red cupcake stand! I love this and I'm going back to see if they have mo…
