Bella Bash & Some Announcements

Happy Saturday my stalkers! Is anyone else as happy as I am to see the weekend? It's the one time that I actually get to see/spend time with the other half...instead of the usual wave in passing during the busy week. Yesterday I had so much fun going to visit family and spending some much needed downtime with them. Out for a random drive with my Mom and sister, we drove past a tow truck company and who did we find? Well Mater of course!

And I even got to stop in at my sister's place and spend time with her and my 1 month old new nephew!

The newest love of my life. Aren't we a cute couple?

Last night was absolutely awesome, as I attended Bella Bash in SLC with Lindsay over at Artsy Fartsy Mama, and Jessica from Cox's Creations. We had so much fun! It was swanky, fun and best of all filled with bloggers! We ate, we talked, we crafted, basically we entered nirvanna for bloggers.

We made us some awesome bling sponsored by Imaginisce

Aint it pwetty?

We got pampered by the awesome massage therapists at Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa with mini massages, facials, and all kinds of luxurious treats! We got raffle prizes, door prizes, and basically just got spoiled!
The loot I brought home!

It was so much fun to connect with other bloggers. Over the computer is great and I love it, but nothing beats face to face time with people who are doing the same thing you are, and connecting about things you love. I've been going through some blogging slumps the last few weeks and haven't been able to find anything new to do here. I've also had questions about the content I post in my quilting blog, about staying "in niche" or just doing what I want. I discussed my ideas and concerns with my blogging friends and got some great insights and ideas on where I want to take this.

So when I got home I sat down and wrote out everything that I want to do here, what ideas I wanted to share, and basically the conclusion I came to is this: It's my blog, it's going to have a little bit of everything because it's who I am. It's how I roll. It's called "Quilted Euphoria" but I'm not going to just post about that...and not feel guilty about confusing you, my readers on a weekly basis!

I also came away with some great ideas for some fun things I am going to do, giveaways, guest posts, and a few other surprises! So starting August 20th, I'm going to be having a "Featured Blogger" week. Each day that week will feature a brand new blogger with a giveaway from that person! It's going to be so much fun! I've got a great bunch of bloggers already lined up, so this is going to be FUN!

So stay tuned, this next few months are going to be fun! Have a great weekend everyone! :-)
