Sweet George's Thrift, Craft & Cook

Sweet George's Thrift Craft and Cook is just what it sounds like.....a blog to post my thrifting, crafting and cooking fun.

Monday, October 23, 2006


For the last couple months now I've been an avid reader of all the classic craft blogs (Wee Wonderfuls, The Black Apple, Posie Gets Cosie, Apron Thrift Girl, It's Your Life, etc.) Every day I would rush home from school and read what my favirote crafters had been doing that day. EVen though I read their blog everyday I never posted a comment. Now that I have my own blog I realize how important comments are. They give me suggestion, help and encouragement. They also let me know if any ones reading my lonely little blog. I dont want to be posting to nobody you know! The point of my little speil is that I myself am going to try to comment more and I'm going to be having a drawing for a little goodie pack. Whoever posts a comment on this post or any other post until late tuesday evening will be entered into a drawing to win the goodie basket. The prize will include things from It's Your Life, vintage fabric and japanese goods. The point of this drawing is for me to see if anyone is reading my blog and to encourage people to post comments.

This coming thursday and friday a HUGE ceramic convention is coming to my school. It's called Bruce's Buddies. Has anyone heard of it. Aparently alot of big name ceramic artists are comeing to give demonstrations, give speeches and display there art. Art Club will sell food all day there so hopefully I'll have a lot of pictures to share.

As I go I'll leave you with a funny picture of my boy George. Yes, my 80 plus pound dog insists on siting and sleeping on my moms and my lap. One of the many reasons why I love him so so so much. The other day Posie Get's Cosie posted about her doggie and everything she said rang true. It;s nice to know that's theres people out there who love there dog as much as I love mine!

What a lovely photo. Is your dog a certain breed? I love dogs but I don't have one right now. We want to get one but we travel so much in the summer that it would be hard the dog and us. But we did get a tortie cat from the animal shelter. She's been a wonderful addition to our family.

I found your blog through one of your comments on Emily's Black Apple blog.

Your dog's a cutie! I used to have an Engligh mastiff who was the best dog in the world. He spoiled me for all others....I haven't found one yet that could take his place.

So, I didn't realize how big George really is. I can totally related. Jake is 65 pounds and must be snuggle up close, or stitting in between us on the couch, or snugled between us completely under the covers at night, (of course that is after we have covered him up with his own blankies in his own bed and he has moved enough to uncover himself and gets cold in the middle of the night.) Love our snuggle bunny:)

I too have a tortie, long haired. Her name is Selena. Best cat in the world. Just ask Becky at Thrifty Goodness. She was her roomate for a bit.

One other bonus to commenting is that other commenters will often come to visit your blog when they are reading comments on the bigger blogs. (I always think it is interesting if you look at site tracker to see how many people are visiting versus how many are commenting!)
