starting something new

i've been blown away with your guy's love of my tutorials and patterns.

seriously, thank you.

i want to start something new here at V and Co. and highlight your finished products using my tutorials (my ones here or on the moda bakeshop or bought at my etsy shop!)

so many have sent me links, personal emails, and have uploaded to my flicker group of things you've made using my tutorials.

and i wish i had thought of this before, and made a folder in my email for "pictures and links of products using my tutorials"

but alas i did not. and my email inbox is one big huge nasty monster that i try to avoid mainly because it causes me hives with how messy and unorganized it is.

oh don't get me wrong, i've tried...I'VE TRIED to organize it, but you all keep sending me nice little notes (which i love) and wonderful suggestions (which i love) and questions, questions, questions, (which i love, and sometimes can't get to in a nice and timely fashion) and in that mess there are links to and pictures of other lovelies you guys have sent me.

if i could just figure out how to make more time in the day i could make that email inbox a little less un-organized and i could find all your lovely links and pictures.

so with all that in mind. if in the past you have sent me a link or an email with a picture of your finished product using my tutorial, would you:

A) please consider putting it in my flicker group
B) consider sending me another link and picture to your finished product?

i promise to take better care of it this time around.

here's to showing off your stuff using my stuff...or something like that.
ps: thank you for the wonderful etsy success yesterday! can't wait to see your pictures, links, and emails with those patterns in the near future as well!

All the projects ladies have made with your tutorials are great. You are so right, so much easier to link up the flicker and then you can look through all the projects in a much better fashion.
You inspire a lot of us with your creativity and we can't help but want to share our excitement with our finished project with you. Here is to overcoming a messy email box.
P.S. I can't believe you are up already in your part of the country. It's early.

I have been following your blog for a couple months or so and have never commented but have gotten a lot of good ideas...if I could just find the time to do them. I was reading your post today and saw the rag rugs and I was so excited!!! I immediately had to go print out the tutorial. My husband's mom and grandma used to make rag rugs and I have several around the house and always wanted to learn to do them, but sadly never learned before they passed away. My husband has always told me I should of learned and when I told him I had found this on your site today he was excited. My MIL crocheted hers, but grandma used to do the braided rag rugs, so I am excited to try and make one and when I do I will make sure and post a picture! I saw that you crocheted one and if you ever wanted to do a tutorial on how to do one that way I would be thrilled...lol! Again, I love your site and thanks again for taking the time to post!

it is very good to start something new, it is so amazingly when something that doesn't make sense for both, Now, we treat it with care. Wonderful.

I was just showing my MIL your tutorials last night, and raving about the baby girl quilt from ModaBakeShop that I made awhile back. I even bought her a honeybun to get started :) I think I'm taking over your flickr group with my V&Co finished projects...
