Applique Shirt, My Guest Blog Appearance & A GIVEAWAY!!!!

   First off, let me apologize for being MIA for awhile.   I had ankle surgery about a month ago and it hit me harder than I thought It would.  Prior to my surgery, I was thinking about all of the crafts I was going to get to do while my 3 kids were at my mom's for two weeks while I recooperated.  Um...that didn't exactly happen.  I felt way worse than I anticipated and spent a lot of my time sleeping.  Don't get me wrong, it was nice to catch up on eight years worth of missed shuteye...but still..I wish I would've gotten more done.  I had also promised that when I reached 50 followers, I would have a giveaway.  Well, 50 came and went and now I'm almost to 100 followers!  How exciting!  Don't worry, I'm automatically giving everyone from 50 on up an entry in the GIVEAWAY!!


 So anyway, here is one thing I actually did get done.  I made this shirt for my 18-month-old DD.  I cut the tree and clouds by hand and used my Cricut to cut the letters.  I thought it turned out pretty cute.  How about you?


 
    
  Ok, I'm so excited to tell you that I will be a guest blogger on Sew Can Do this Friday July 30th!!  This is my first appearance as a guest blogger.  Woo Hoo!!  The CraftShare theme this week is die cutting machines.  Hop on over and check out my tutorial using the Cuttlebug!!
 

Now FINALLY (drum roll please) I am hosting this GIVEAWAY to celebrate the rebirth of my blog.  I started out blogging just for myself a while back.  I wanted a way to record projects I made.  A lot of my work was/is for other people, so I wanted a way to remember the hard work and love I had put into each project.  After awhile, I began sharing my stuff with my fellow CTMH girls.  I have had many people suggest that I share this blog with the world..soooooo... I changed my blog name from "She's Crafty" (borrowed from one of my favorite Beastie Boys songs) to a more original one "allie B dallie" named after my childhood nickname. I also changed from a free blogger template to one I created myself using digital scrapbooking elements.  So HERE I AM!  I've put a lot of work into making this blog my own.  I am just so excited to share my love for arts and crafts with you!  I hope you follow me on my journey and I especially hope that you are inspired to create your own beautiful works of art!
So what is the GIVEAWAY?  A bunch of loot!!

 

Included in the GIVEAWAY:

Spellbinders Nestabilities Die Set
4- pkgs. of chipboard letters
K&Co Stickers to Go

At first, I thought your giveaway was the cute shirt because I have a daughter who would look good in that. But as I read on, I found the giveaway which looks great. Not only am I leaving you a comment, but I am also a follower of your great blog.

I like the T-shirt a lot! You gave me a perfect idea to decorate my refashioned dress!

Tammy said...

The shirt is adorable! I didn't realize you could use a Cricut for anything other than paper (I don't have one, so I guess I don't get to use it for anything! LOL).

Awesome giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

And thanks for providing all the great info on how to cut material using my cricut. I've been wanting to do this but have been so afraid. Now with help from your site, I just might try it. Thank you! I'm also a follower of your site.

That shirt is really super adorable! What is a cricut? I've seen crafty bloggers using it all over the place, but I have no idea what it is.
