Here is what Caren had to say:
Hi Erica! Until three days ago I stayed at home with my two toddlers -
kudos to you for getting some "mommy time" in! I know it can be hard to
balance everything (and also hard to not try to do every cool thing you
see in bloggy land - there are so many creative people out there!!!).
Hopefully your kiddies will pick up some creative inspiration from you.
My little peeps love buttons, fabric, pins and needles, etc. My six
year old keeps bugging me to let him sew on the machine. (I taught him
to iron at age 4, and he loves to sew). I am working fulltime now, but
if you want to take a look at some of the things I've done with my kids
you can visit my blog.
Caren, if you could please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get your address to pass on to Shirley for your beautiful charm pack!
I wish I could have chosen all of you, but Shirley at SimpleSew only had one to give. I appreciate each and every one of you for stopping by and being my newest followers. I went from having only 4 to I think 20 now! I am excited to be able to share my sewing/crafting/mommy adventures with each and every one of you, and if you just give me a day or 2, I will visit each of your blogs and follow you as well. Stay tuned because I am part of SimpleSew's Blogaversary giveaway and I will upload photo later today of the handmade giveaway prize!
Again, thank you to all of you!
