get ready for the spring board

Do you need a creative kick in the pants? Get ready for a week of inspiration and some crazy good giveaways. Spring Board is a week-long creative collaboration of bloggers and is the brainchild of Knitty Bitties' Andrea Taddicken, a talented sewer and etsy shop owner. The kick-off is this weekend, and Monday the fun begins in earnest.

The gist: Each member of the board (including myself) was gifted with the pretty pack of fabric and notions you see above (sponsored by the good folks at Fabric Shoppe). What we created with it was limited only by our imagination. I do love a challenge. And, wait for it...each item will be given away to one lucky reader. So there will be seven chances for you to win a lovely, handmade item for your very own, but limitless opportunities for you to be inspired. Visit Knitty Bitties for the details, and check back with her each day this coming week to see the next reveal intro.

Well, I can just hear your craft gears clink-clinking. What would you make with the kit? If you would like a chance to win a lovely tied-up stack just like it and find out, hurry over to Knitty Bitties to meet the other members of the board enter her kick-off giveaway today. (Giveaway will end Monday, April 11th at 12AM {MST})


  1. That sounds like SO much fun! (Assuming you're not me and wouldn't totally stress yourself into a hair falling out stupor.) Can't wait to see what you've made!

  2. I was thinking the same thing, Robyn! I can't think of anything and I don't even have any pressure. Can't wait to see yours and everyone else's this next week, L.

  3. How lucky was I to get you to say YES :D. Really I should have picked you as my PR person ... your post is wonderful!! I too can not wait to see what you've got up your sleeve ...

    Now off to look closer at that glimpse I got of the girls' room ... to.die.for. When can I move in? I'll sleep in a twin if it comes with my own quilt!!


  4. Andrea, I'm feeling pretty good about it since I'm done now. :-) I wasn't feeling so great this time yesterday. Thanks for the invite! I enjoyed the challenge. I have to say I am VERY curious about what the other board members have made.
    Thanks about the girls' room! If it would stay as clean as in the picture that would be nice. You should see it right now. No pictures of THAT will make it on the blog.

  5. Larissa-I love love love visiting your blog. Yes, you make cool stuff, yes, you have great tutorials, yes, you inspire--but I love visiting because its simply a happy place. Your blog is like your girls' room--just wonderful! It's usually so much easier to read than to comment but I had to give you a shout out! Thanks!
