They Caught My Attention

I've seen a few things lately that have really grabbed my attention and I thought I'd share them today.  In no particular order:
Have you ever visited Jessica Jones, How About Orange blog?  It is one of my favorites and it was one of the first blogs that I fell in love with.  Her blog is clean, bright and inviting as well as lots of fun.  If you have not visited I highly suggest you click on the link above and check out her posts as well as some of her pages.

The pages Jessica has on her blog are:

DIY Tutorials- My favorite is the Stitched Fabric Notecard.
Free Downloads -One of my favorites is the Halloween Fonts.
Useful Resources - Check out Free Vector Frames and Ornaments
Time Wasters - Absolutely my favorite is the Conduct Your Own Beatbox Group...ROFL- LOVE IT!

On Jessica's FAQ page - Definitely a grabber is the following sentence:

What's your favorite adjective?
This girl definitely knows how to have fun and I have fun every time I visit her blog.

Alex Veronelli from Aurifil Threads, is in my opinion, the KING of Social Media in the Quilting Industry.  I've always enjoyed Aurifil's Facebook page and recently I saw that there is a  Hey Girl slogan campaign challenge going on and I thought everyone should take a chance at winning some Aurifil Thread and a MODA Fabric surprise pack. 

Ya'all know there is nothing that stands in the way of my wanting to WIN Aurifil Thread right?  RIGHT!!!   I didn't read about the number of entries that were allowed so I sent all 7 that  popped into my head the other night.  Here are my entries:

If you LOVE Aurifil Thread than I suggest that you CLICK HERE and read about how you can enter the challenge.

Last but definitely not least is the Ellison Lane Blog written by Jennifer Mathis.  I subscribe by e-mail to Jennifer's blog and I've been enjoying her posts.  She is a designer and generously offers several free tutorials on her blog.  When I first saw her tutorial on a Guys Survival Kit Tutorial I immediately bookmarked the page because it is so difficult to come up with hand made gifts for me. 

Look what showed up in my e-mail today:

Jennifer is hosting a Holiday Hostess Series that includes several fun tutorials as well as an opportunity to win some great prizes.  CLICK HERE to see the tutorial above and look into her Holiday Hostess Series.

Before I close I do want to remind everyone that I have MJ's Bag Tag Tutorial here on the IHAN® blog and the Bag Tags also make wonderful holiday gifts.  
These are just a few examples of the Bag Tags.
I hope I have shared something with you today that made you smile!
