You Are Awesome - several opportunities for you!

Umm, happy halloween.  Sorry this post isn't spooky.  Or is it?!?!?!


So, you know you're awesome, right?!?!  I need some awesome up in here - yep, I need you :)  More on that on down....

But first, FYI, I have about 3 spots left in Sugar Bee Shops if you're interested....

Second, these people are super awesome, so check them out -- they like to comment, and I like to read comments, so it's a win-win:


Third, who wants a free ad spot on my sidebar for November? - - I'm giving one away this week - wahoo!  To enter, just visit any one of my sponsors, they're all awesome, then come back here and leave a comment saying who you checked out, what you loved, whatever.  One way to enter, winner drawn at the end of the week.

Fourth - where you come in - yep,  calling all guest posters! Several of you have inquired about guest posting, and I normally don't have guest posters, except for a couple of times a year.  And it's been awhile, so let's do it!
Info about guest posting:
--I want everyone to have the chance - - if you've never guest posted before, go for it!  I can walk you through it, so no excuses.  If you've guest posted before, you know how fun it is to pop on someone else's blog - and possibly get their readers to pop on over to your blog.
--I am awful about doing holiday-related posts, so that's what I'm looking for - either winter, fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc - I know you have great ideas!!
--It needs to be a tutorial - that means, showing how to make/do/sew/cook something.  The full tutorial will be posted here (not just part).  It'd be great if it's a new tutorial that you haven't posted yet.  But if you have something fabulous you've already posted and you'd like to share the whole tutorial, that would be alright.
--I would need your post by Nov 9th (or earlier).  The Guest Post Extravaganza will run Nov 10-Nov 19, excluding Tuesdays, Wednesday mornings, and the 17th.  If 100 people are interested (highly unlikely), then I'll just run 10 posts on the 10 days - that way everyone gets the opportunity (if only 10 people are interested, then it'll only be  post a day).  I will assign your date to you after I have everyone signed up.
--I will need you signed up to participate by this Thursday, Nov 3rd.  Just go to THIS DOCUMENT and leave me your name and email address so I know you're interested.
--I will send out more info on Nov 4th as to how I want the post formatted, etc.

I visited Poppy Seed Fabric, and I seriously can not pick just one fabric set. I REALLY need to grow my fabric stash, so I love all of it. lol

I would love to guest post....but I'm gonna need a day or two to figure out if I have something REALLY GOOD to share on your blog. I mean, it has to be PERFECT!

Oh, and I pinned the same "quote" at the top of this blog. HA!
