All About....the Blog

Continuing with the All About.... series - - today, let's hear all about the blog!!

I started this blog when I kept posting projects on my family blog and thought it was getting overwhelming.  So they got their own spot over here.  My family blog is called All Buzz so at first this blog was "All The Buzz - Craft Edition".  When it grew I changed to "Sugar Bee - Craft Edition" because my url was still "craft edition".  Then I bought my own url, so I changed to Sugar Bee Crafts.  Oh how it evolves!

Sugar Bee Crafts: sewing, recipes, crafts, photo tips, and more!

I try to stick with a semi-schedule - - maybe you never noticed:

--if there's a giveaway, it's usually on Mondays
--Tuesday is always Take-A-Look Tuesday
--Wednesday is always What I Wore Wednesday and Show Offs from the link party.
--Saturdays I'm supposed to do a food post, but I've been slacking on that lately
--normally no posts run on Sundays

I have a new drop-down tool bar, so feel free to check that out. I'm working on updating the "tutorials" section, so bear with me!

I occasionally write posts that are sponsored because this blog is a lot of work and if it can bring in a little extra money, that's great.  But when I write those posts, just know that I won't replace regular posts (I'll still run a craft post that day) and I only pick things I love.  Like when I talked about Zenni optical - I really do love them, so it's a bonus that they'll pay me to write a post.

Mainly I write craft posts - I know that's what you're probably here for.  Tutorials are my favorite to read on other blogs, probably because I know how much work goes into them!  I try to focus on tutorials here as well - it's time consuming, but I just love helping everyone see a way on how to make things.

If you think this blog is awesome, feel free to become a follower.  I still look at that box every time I log on and get excited when even one person joins - so fun to have you all!!

I reply to all questions in the comments through email.  My comments are emailed to me so I just hit "reply" - unless of course, your email isn't linked up, then I can't find you... (so please please please, link up your email to your account)

haha - I started a crafty blog to because my crafts were 'cluttering up" the family blog

Actually, my favorite part of your blog is WIWW. And I appreciate it that you don't get offended when I give my crazy opinions. It's so FUN. I mean, who else ever ASKS for my opinion! ;-) I hope you have a great 2012 and I look forward to reading Sugar Bee Crafts all year.

So I know you have a "schedule" above...but you do SO MUCH more than that! Love your blog, and tutorials too. ;)

Thanks for the great tutorials! I've tried the lace skirt and a few others! Happy New Year!

I always love to see the evolution of blogs. Your blog & link-up are some of my faves! Thanks for all that you do :)
