Even though life is crazy busy, I decided to participate in an apron swap. I had been reading http://flirtyapronswap.blogspot.com/ blog for a while and couldn't wait for the new swap to open so I could join in. As soon as I got the e-mail, I registered and went through my stash to see what fabric I had, hoping that I didn't need to spend money and hoping that I could decrease my stash somewhat. I also am trying to make things for my tuck-ins from things I have at home. I think I will be buying somethings at the store, but I think I have a few things at home that I can make and feel good about giving to someone. I am really excited about participating in this swap and am looking forward to more swaps.
This swap means a lot to me, especially now that I am cooking more. My grandmother, my mother's mother, who was a major influence in my life, always used to tell me to wear an apron when I cooked. I never did. I almost always got something on my clothes and should have listened. Now that I have found http://flirtyapronswap.blogswap.com/, I am really excited to start wearing aprons. Through the FAS blog, I found the blog http://cupcakeprovocateur.blogspot.com/. There are so many cute aprons on there that have the classic feel, but also have a little flair to them also. I am hoping to get some inspiration from this website and maybe even get an apron!
