Happy happy Blogiversary GIVE AWAY!

WOW!
Happy Blogiversary to me! Today's Creative Blog!
Give away details below.





Last year on April 9th, I was sitting at my computer catching up with all my favorite blogs, soaking up all the inspiration. Being the American that I am, naturally I wanted MORE! I wanted more ideas, more cool blogs to look at, to read, to connect with. Being the spontaneous person that I am........within that 5 min of trying to search for MORE..........I thought "hey! I'm going to start a blog and feature a different creative blog EVERYDAY!" So I did.........TBC was born starting with a good online friend of mine Nancy Jones..........but as you may have noticed, I couldn't keep up with the daily posting. I thought I could if I just posted the blog, not adding anything else. But I liked adding my own 2 cents.......knowing a bit about it, researched it, tried to get to know who each blogger was........and let me tell you......that takes time. And time is not on my side most days. Being a fitness professional ......(who needs to lose 40lbs)who leaves the house everyday at 6:15am, a mom of a busy 3rd grader, a PTA board member who does the newsletter every 2 week, a school volunteer, a bargain shopper, a wife....... Some days, I just don't have the time. At first I felt guilty, but quickly gave that up.


The goal of this blog is to inspire. To make you think outside the box, whether it's being creative, or helping you believe that you can try something new.


I have LOVED the community we have created. I could not have done any of this without YOU! I have met so many like minded women. We are all creative in our own way, it comes in so many different forms. I am continually blown away with the talent that's out there.


Thank you!

As a Thank you, I am giving away one of Amanda's books. Just leave a comment telling me what your favorite creative talent is and I'll pick one tomorrow (April 10th) at 8pm pacific time, using the random number generator. I would choose one earlier, but I have to work the snack shack at the ball field. :)

Carrie Sue said...

I doubt the random number generator would pick number 1... but it is worth a go. My favorite creative talent is digital scrapbooking... I love it!

Vanessa said...

Looks like a fun book! My favorite creative talent? Hmmmm...currently I love to make cards for the people I love. I also use my creativity in my little antique booth.

Denise... said...

Definitely cards...as a favorite, though there are other things that come in close. Seems like I go through phases. And rest assured that your blog does inspire!

Jenny K said...

My favorite creative talent -- scrapbooking followed by creating a new dinner out of leftovers. jkolsubs(at)gmail(dot)com

Barb said...

I think my favorite creative talent is the willingness to try new things. I love to craft and have some things that I'm better at than others, but I think my strength is appreciating something new and being open to new things.

Jan Scholl said...

I have always been creative-even making barbie clothes out of paper when I was young. the most useless things I can find another way to use them instead of tossing them. I am the recycle queen.

woo said...

congrats on a year! I LOVE your blog, I think it's great. My favorite thing is to make collages. Although, I don't get the time to do it as much.

Tori said...

congrats on your anniversary, you're blog is amazing!! It all in itself inspires me to be creative...my favorite creative talent being sewing...congrats again!

ihchicky said...

My favorite creative talent definitely would have to be scrapbooking. After that I would probably have to say crafting out of everything things you have lying around at home. Thank you for this great giveaway. The book looks fantastic.

Megan said...

What a cool book! Thanks for sharing. My favorite creative talent is event planning.

Kimber-Leigh said...

i am so glad that you were so inspired a year ago to do this! i just adore your site!

oh, i'd love a copy of the book! i was just on my way to order it (i looked at the blog earlier) through your site and noticed your new post! i guess i'll wait until tomorrow to order!

have a great day!

Kimber-Leigh said...

oops! i forgot my creative talent in my last post...hmmm...scrapbooking or knitting...or writing! i can't choose!

Jenny said...

My new fave creative talent is making bag tags for diaper bags, etc.

The Jackson Family said...

I just stumbled across your site and Love it! So Thanks, but my new favorite creative talent is making bows for my little girl! I just love it!

Suzanne said...

I have been following Amanda's blog for almost two years and love it! She is amazing. My talent isn't exciting, I like to make cards like many others. I'm hoping for a sewing machine for Mother's Day so I can start that hobby again -- my home needs a lot of attention!

Chanda said...

My fav creative is eating food from the snack shack - JK, (sort of.) My true passion is scrapbooking, but I'm finding that my "scrapping" covers a much broader scope since blogging - so much inspiration out there!

PS - I really love this blog. I suck at leaving comments. I'm more of a "blog troll." But I really enjoy it - everyday! Thanks for all your work.

ann marie said...

Thank you for posting such great things! I love it!
My favorite creative talent is card making because I love putting that talent to use to make personalized cards for those around me and it's fun (and cheaper)! I also love to put my creative talent of organization to work! Thanks again!

Lyndsay said...

Yay, congratulations to you! I'd say my favorite creative talent is card making. Quilting is a close second. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Lyndsay

dynochick (Jan) said...

Love your blog. My creative talent is taking old or broken items and reinventing them. My favorite material to work with is wrought iron.

D'Rae said...

Congratulation on the blogoversary. My creative talant is sewing. I am not that good at it, but I am learning! I love your blog!

Donna said...

Hmmm, my favorite creative talent is scrapbooking, or maybe it's knitting, or photography, or sewing, or cooking. Can't decide!

Sarah and Jack said...

Hmmm, I love it all. Sewing, needle felting, paper crafts, decorating. Too hard to choose!

Julie said...

Congrats on your one year blogiversary! You continue to point me to new favorite blogs (though I think they are all my favorites) all the time.

I have to pick one creative talent?!?!? I'll say a few. Sewing and knitting are my absolute favorites.

Jenny said...

This is a hard one. Creative gutsiness - I really admire people who can whip things up, especially clothing, without patterns or directions!
I'm really hoping I win this book. :)

Aud said...

Gotta say I love all things creative--happy blogiversary, I'm so glad to have found you!

madrekarin said...

Happy anniversary to you and your wonderful blog. :) I don't know if this really counts, because evryone else's talents are so much more tactile in origin, but mine would be writing. I have found that as I age, the more observant I have become. As a happy result, I am able to collect my thoughts and put them into words.

Crazy Daisy said...

Happy Blogiversary!

This looks like an amazing book and I would be blessed to be chosen!

My favorite creative talent is my layout visions. For scrapbooking, cards, or decorating. Being able to visualize something before it is done is wonderful (though also makes it hard for me to follow directions on projects!hehe)

Mama Lily said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I so enjoy looking at other blogs that I wouldn't have found otherwise. I really like the decorating/crafty ideas.

I like sewing too.

Here's hoping I win!

Helen said...

Congratulations! Your blog is great. Not sure if you would post to New Zealand but I still wanted to say well done :) I love to write and sew.

Heidi (http://journals.aol.com/hwoodred/everyday-cookies/) said...

Congratulations on ONE year! I read your blog faithfully, and am never disapointed at the new blogs you find (amazing!) My favorite creative talent ... hum, hard to choose and I 'into' so much (translated: can't sit still)... Okay, My favorite creative talent is my handpainted signs! Each sign takes hours to complete, but I enjoy the creativity!
*Heidi*
Everyday Cookies blog

daisyeyes said...

my favorite creative talent...hmmm. i would say sewing, scrapbooking, needle point and all of the above :)

Amy said...

being creative is so much fun and brings me an appreciation for those of you who are so amazing (like yourself!) I think one of my favorites though is just trying new things... knitting, scrapbooking, cards, embroidery, sewing, decorating, stamping.. all of it! I must say I have a serious passion for photography. All of these things I love and I want to become a pro at atleast one! :) Thanks for the inspiration

Emskyrooney said...

COngratulations on the blogiversary! Would love to win this book- have read all the rave reviews of it! ONe of my favorite creative talents is digital scrapbooking.. But I'm also into sewing, baking, and photography...

~Vanessa

Jacquelynne said...

I enjoy your blog tremendously, I always like to see what other creative people are up to!

And like so many people commenting here, I can't pick just one thing that I love- I just love looking at and making pretty things (quilting, painting, collage, gardening, etc etc) There's always something new to try!

Stephanie said...

I'm a pretty good digital scrapbooker (and just had my first layout published in a magazine) and I can knit a mean scarf! I just love Soulemama and would give my left arm for this book! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Anonymous said...

I am always amazed and how much women can get done with families, jobs and kids and still have time to be creative. I love learning new things and ways to do things better. It gets me going, like coffee! I think my one thing is getting inspired to do a new project! HEIDI in OHIO

naturalmotherhood said...

I think I'm too late on the book give away but I just saw this ;)
My favorite creative talent is baking comforting goods for others. There are many creative talents I enjoy pursuing and gaining skill in but baking is a gift to the hands putting it together, too. Just the whole process of gathering ingredients, following steps to transform them into something delectable... and seeing cooling in preparation to give for the pleasure of someone else is a heart melody.

"Kreative Karma" said...

Hi Kim!

Congrats on your one year!! It's fun to know that I knew you back when most of these ladies didn't lol! My fave creative things to do is digital scrapbooking... I would LOVE to be decorating more but with currently leasing a house, I am holding off!

HUGS!

Tara said...

I enjoy your blog so much! My favorite creative pursuit is embroidery.

Anita K. said...

My favorite creative talents are scrapbooking and making greeting cards. I enjoy sharing both of them with friends and family.

Congrats on your one year anniv.!

momunscripted said...

angbrimwil said...

luka bella said...

My creative talent is scrapbooking and photography. Happy Anniversary, you should be very proud of yourself girl. www.lukabella.typepad.com

HopiQ said...

I love your blog! You find the neatest sites.

My favorite creative talent? Finding time to be creative. :) I do love to sew.

Blossom said...

Pleeeeeeeease pick me...pretty please!!! I would dearly love a copy of this book. Happy Blogiversary to you!!! What an achievement!!!

Seth, Sarah and the kids said...

my favorite creative outlet is photography! congrats on your first year!

Blossom said...

Oops...forgot my favourite creative talent. And it's so hard to pick just one...I think I would have to say playing the piano (but sewing and crafting come a close second). I've been playing piano since I was a little girl and now that I'm much older, I'm so thankful to my parents for encouraging me to stick with it. It really is a special gift.

Ok...now does this mean I have two chances to win??? Sneaky huh!!!

Kathie said...

Congrats on your blog anny!
I really have enjoyed reading your blog the past few months.
Here is to another year...
my creative talent...is quiltmaking
I LOVE to make quilts!
thats for a wonderful giveaway, I have wanted this book since it came out!
Kathie

tricia said...

I love your blog, and really appreciate you featuring me. I'd have to say my favorite creative talent is being able to take something that is considered junk or disposable, and make it into something functional and beautiful.

ericandles said...

Knitting. It has always been knitting. I dabble in almost EVERYTHING else but knitting is the one I always come back to. So methodical and satisfying. I love it.

Victorian Lady said...

Congrats on your blog anniversary! I enjoy it very much. I am having trouble answering your favorite talent part...I would say that I love clay probably the most, but have been doing painting quite a bit lately. I think my favorite part about being creative is never having that box that says, "I only do this or that." To be creative is to jump into a new way of making things whether it it is just new to you or something nobody has ever thought of before. My husband supports my efforts, but would probably like it if I stuck to just one thing...then I wouldn't have so many supplies and tools everywhere! Thanks for a great blog! I know it is a great effort!

Stephanie said...

I just discovered your blog this week and already a give-a-way?? I say - perfect timing.

I love your blog and have added you to my google reader so I won't miss an update. ;)

My favorite creative talent is photography. Hands down.

whimsyart said...

My current favorite creative talent is making things out of felt and buttons. Happy Anniversary on your blog - I just recently found it - now I stop by almost everyday.

Marne said...

Oh, it is hard to pick just one creative talent! I think my favorite is photography, with felt food as a close second!

muralimanohar said...

Sewing. I have many favorite creative talents, but all things sewing is the one that suckers me every single time.

Shauna said...

I would love to have that book! My favorite creative talent is sewing and I'm trying to improve my photography skills. Congrats on your blogiversary!

amy - directionally challenged said...

Happy Blogaversary! Congrats on a great year. I just adore your blog!!!!

My favorite creative talent is the ability to plan a party from designing invites, to planning events, and designing favors!

Thanks again!
Amy

GEL-Oh said...

Making one of a kind wreaths for my front door.

paperjunk-lc said...

I think my creative talent might be vignettes. So many years in retail...I guess it's like changing displays!
Happy Anniversary!!

Kristan said...

Happy Blogiversary!! I am currently being overly crafty. SewQuiltScrapKnitting. I don't know if I would call it a talent, maybe random insaneness. (Is that a word??)

Michelle said...

My favorite creative talent is baking. I know that doesn't SOUND creative, but it feels like it when I'm tweaking recipes to make myself believe that they are healty :).

My current creative obsession is anything inspired by cheap finds at the local thrift store! I love to take something old and make it new again.

Jessica said...

My favorite creative talent is blogging of course! But second favorite is to make children's clothes for my son and my friends children. I love looking here for inspiration!

Kalleen W. said...

My favorite would have to be turning junk into a one of a kind treasure.

psuamy1 said...

Hi there! Congrats on your one year anniversary! My favorite would have to be baking: cookies, cupcakes, any sweets really. There is so much freedom to be creative in the "decorating" and if you mess up, who cares? It's just icing and sprinkles and that is a reward no matter how it's served!! Here's to another year!

Gulbrandsen Family said...

This is such a neat site! I love repainting, reupholstering, and sewing covers to make everything new, exactly my style, and changeable.

Sarah said...

Happy Blogiversary!! I would have to say my current favorite is knitting but I love dabbling in all sorts of things!!

Tami said...

So enjoy your blog! Favorite creative stuff to do...giftwrapping and making cards with vintage photos, flowers, buttons and goodies.

Michelle said...

I love your blog - it's awesome! I'm still a beginner, but I love glassblowing. As with any creative talent, you can do just about anything with it. wavewatcher08(at)gmail(dot)com.

Lucky me I found your blog today!My favorite creative talent hard to shoose between Sewing and Scrapbooking, I am at stay at home mom and when a new baby is born, I make a blanket, not a little receiving blanket but a large 1 1/2 yds. one that can grow with them into toddlerhood and beyond, I know you love handmade stuff that is personalized so I thought you should know...

Monkey Giggles said...

My favorite creative talent would be re-purposing vintage items.

Congrats on your one year

E and T said...

Hi Kim

I've only recently discovered your site and love it. Thank you for connecting us to so many inspirational, creative people.

My creative talent, a new found one at that, is coming up with all sorts of craft projects for my toddler to do.

Beverly said...

My creativity includes knitting, crocheting, re-purposing vintage finds, as well as baking goodies for my grandkidlets. In the past I've written a tourism newsletter, cross-stitched, made jewelry, sewn clothing for my girls and me, and done rubber stamping. I think your blog is ingenious!

Anonymous said...

I love your blog and use it to link to all of the fun and creative blogs you have featured! This blog candy is fairly new to me, just discovered this whole new world last fall -- love it! I am hoping to start a blog of my own one day soon! Thanks for all you do to bring such inspired and inspiring women to our attention!

Melissa Lester said...

Congratulations! Can't believe you've only been doing this for a year. My favorite creative pursuit is writing how-to craft articles for Christian Woman magazine because the column keeps me trying new crafts. And I love doing birthday parties, too!

Anita Van Hal said...

uuummm, tough to list just one-but I love stamping, and altering/re-purposing thrift store and garage sale finds...making things for my granddaughters (doll clothes), teaching them to sew, stamp, scrapbook, quilt, embroider, etc. Paper is probably my first love...

Summers Camp said...

I really do need this book, Kim. So pick me! As for creative talent, it's different almost everyday! I have hobby cycles I go through (digiscrap, sewing, ModPodge, etc). But right now it's crochet.

Mostly, I like picking apart inspiration. Whether it's a store or a blog, I'm always trying to figure out "how did they do that?" and then reinterpreting it... *B

sarahau said...

My favourite creative talent is teh ability to ignore rotten husbands and noisy children whilst carfting. It is also my most helpfl talent when Im almost finished and just have a row or seam left to do!

The Odd One said...

Happy Blog-iversary!
My favorite creative thing to do must be... sewing. At least currently.

Melissa said...

Congrats on your first year! My favorite creative talent is using scrapbooking supplies to decorate and embellish things around my home.

Alicia said...

This book looks great! I would have to say my favorite creative talent is writing since it has been with me for so long. But I am having fun learing design.

Zarah said...

Being across the big puddle, I'm not entering the give away. Just wanted to pop in and say CONGRATS and thank you for being here! :D

BrynnMarie82 said...

A huge congrats to you. Whenever people are looking for crafty or creative blogs I always link them up here!! Right now my fav creative outlet is Hybrid Scrapbooking. So much fun and I love combining digi and traditional.

PĂ©itseoga said...

my favourite creative talent is figuring things out as i go along. i love to turn a vague idea in my head into a finished item in my hands. the internet is a great resource for learning anything you need to start into a new project.
when i was a kid i made (/tried to make) loads of things because of something i saw on tv or in the paper, like a sling to carry my doll from watching a program on africa, dolls houses from shoe boxes, trying to weave corn leaves into a mat (ouch, worse than paper cuts!), my cousin and i even attempted to make flip flops from newspapers because we saw it on a program...

jenn7 said...

Digital scrapbooking of course! Congrats on the anniversary!

Mindi said...

first of all, happy anniversary. hope you get a little something for that--love your blog. question, why don't you have any blogs featuring observations on the shallow and superficial but oh so funny??? could it be that you don't know where to find such a blog? don't hate because i can't scrapbook--;)

mandco said...

Congratulations! Your blog is a continuing inspiration, and I hope it will be for many years to come!

Anonymous said...

I love to decorate my home. I am a true nester and love any fabric and am always trying to find somewhere else to put some. Building out home last year was a great job for me. Congrats on the blog!

I love shopping home improvement stores and finding different, creative, even beautiful uses for the utilitarian stuff there. Very rewarding!

Tami H said...

Happy blogiversary to you! I found your blog only three days ago and instantly felt sad I hadn't know about it long ago. So now I simply *must* sift through every archive post...no two ways around it. ;) Thanks for all the inspiration! I also really enjoy your style of writing...a sense of humor keeps me coming back to a blog. To answer the question, my favorite creative pursuit is stamping! :)

Meghan said...

my favorite is writing...but i so love making wedding invitations and special announcements for people. i love the part where we're meeting for the first time and there are endless possibilities for the project.

Lolly said...

I love digital scrapbooking and playing with my daughter.

Mandi Coombs said...

My creative talent is good old paper scrapbooking! (And I'm really trying to make being a GREAT mom my talent!)

Thanks for all the fun inspiration on your blog!

NStreicher said...

Hi! My favorite creative talent (today, anyway) is being able to spin yarn & knit or weave it into something unique and fabulous!

Mrs. B said...

Kim, you should never ever feel guilty! It is hard to do a post everyday, and I think we all understand that other things get in the way (pesky families, jobs, etc.).

You should be proud of yourself. I've discovered the wonderful world of blogland and started my own blog and am having a great time. And it's all largely in part to your blog. That's how I've discovered so many of the blogs that I love! So thanks and congratulations!

Oh, and I guess my favorite "creative thing" would be decorating related stuff (making art, painting furniture, etc.). And sewing too, even though I can't do it.

Stephanie said...

I totally love sewing, but recently discovered that I also love making cards! So right now, those two things are my favorite.=)

Steph said...

So I was totally signed in with the wrong account (Stephanie). Here I am with the REAL account - Moonpie Designs.=) Sorry bout that!

Stephanie said...

My favorite creative talent would be my new love of sewing. I have a machine that i recently bought and I love it! I also love using my creative talent to try and come up with arts and crafts for my daughter and I to do. So I would really love this book too. Thanks so much for featuring it on your blog! I am fairly new to your blog and love what I have seen so far, so THANKS!

plslade said...

I LOVE your blog and have also been drooling over this book for quite some time! My favorite creative talent has to be designing invitations and notecards. I love to see people's faces when they look at my handmade cards...

Katie & the boys said...

...love Today's Creative blog. My favorite creative talent is painting wooden letters to match nursery decor--it is such an honor that stuff my measly hands create is what decorates the room of a darling little baby. Truly a privilege!

Grammy and Olivia said...

I've tried everything once--but have really stuck with scrapping and cards.

Brittany and Troy said...

I've been wanting this book.

Amanda K said...

Your blog is so fun and I have enjoyed coming here for idea after idea. Thanks for finding such fun blogs and posting them for all of us to see. And don't worry about posting everyday, life happens and sometimes there are more important things!

Because all I really am is crafy... I have a hard time picking just one but, but the one I am really into right now is finding and making decorations for my home.

Kathy said...

I love your blog. My favorite creative talent is party planning. But I love to scrapbook too.

I am a graphic designer - my favorite things to creative are printed pieces and websites - and more recently parties! Yup, I love designing parties from the invites, to the signs, name tags, colors, food, etc etc....love it! Maybe it is a second calling? :) Especially baby showers - great fun to plan!

I was planning on ordering this book but if you're giving it away...

My favorite crafty talents are sewing and scrappin. I have tried quilting a little but the detail aspect of it is a little dificult with all these kids running around.

Where'd they come from anyway?!

Ramona said...

My favourite creative talent is the versatility (sorry if I spelled that wrong) within me. I enjoy so many different crafts and there seems to be no end to adding new ones, too.
Happy Bloggaversary to you!

Splaneyo said...

Hope I am not too late...I would have to say my favorite creative talent is making cakes - they are always original. I love to knit too, but alays use a pattern. I'm creative, but not that creative!

Congratulations on 1 year! You know I LOVE your blog (and, no, not just ‘cause I'm on it). =)

Jamie said...

Susan/sweetimaginations said...

My favorite is painting! If my hubby would let me, I'd paint everything in our home. For now I'm limited to canvases and crafts. Congrats on the blogiversary!

Melody said...

Oh goodness, it's so very hard to pick just one favorite creative talent. My first love would have to be crocheting. I love the ability to use one skill to make so many different things. I also love the creative ability to think outside the box. Some of my best works have came from just going against the norm and making something completely my own.

Happy Blog Anniversary....I look forward to reading your wonderful blog for many more anniversaries. Your entries are always a joy to read.

Happy Blogversary! I definitely appreciate the work that goes into finding new creative blogs to share with us! :) I have found many a fun blogger, and many creative ideas, from your posts!!
Picking a favorite creative is talent....it's just so fun to *be* creative in any form! I can't decide between scrapbooking, decorating/refinishing furniture, and painting. There is just such joy and accomplishment in creating. Thanks for helping us remember that with your blog!

Happy Blogiversary Kim!

I just recently found your blog and I am loving it!!! Seeing your e-mail makes me smile because I know you'll have a new crafty link for us to check out.

I like to scrapbook (although I seem to look at blogs more than scrap) and this year started a picture a day club on flickr. All these sites are inspiring me to try new things and revisit crafts from the past.

Thank you!!!
Kate in Costa Rica

Michelle said...

I love quilting. I like it because they can be passed down through the generations and used to snuggle with loved ones.

paperdoll said...

Love your blog! I check it daily and cry a little when you haven't posted every day. My favorite is stationery design...it's my hobby that turned into a business. Love it!

Debe said...

Hooray for you!!! My daily feeds are full because you have steered me in so many directions. I started looking because of stamping but now I am trying other art forms. Key word....TRYING!! This is all thanks to you! Happy Anniversay!! It is a good thing you are young, so many irons in the fire.

All I have to say I love your blog! I live in the middle of no where there aren't any stores really to shop for gifts so I have taken up sewing. I am making burp cloths and recieving blankets since everyone I know is pregnant! Thank you so much for your time you take with this blog! Love it!!!

Sandy said...

Happy BlogAnniversary! I have to say that altered art is my passion! I find great satisfaction when I create collages and use my sewing maching on them! I also love photography and think that it compliments collages and wonderful scrapbooking as well!
