A Blogebration

January 15th, 2008

UPDATED 1/21/08, 10pm PST:
Comments are now closed. Tomorrow Karen and I will have 2 names drawn while we lunch (because this is how we roll). Our mystery drawer is being fiercely guarded. Stay tuned!


I missed my 200th post (this post marks an obscure #225). I’m too lazy to look at how many comments I have. My blogaversary is in some-other month. I’ve got nuttin. Just a really cool giveaway - complements of my sistah-friend Karen Snyder.

Hmmm… what should I celebrate. Thinking. Thinking. Oh, I know! I’ll make a big to-do-ha-ha over the fact that my flickr photo of my studio has had more views then of my photo of Karen’s studio. Monica -vs- Karen. No, no, no. I can’t do that. That would just be mean of me (moo ahh haa haa). And besides - now everyone is going to go look… and there goes Karen’s view count back up again.

This blogebration is about Karen. Not because she’s such a great friend (even though she claims that MY parents think SHE’S their favorite “long-lost” daughter). No. This blogebration is because even with all that talent of hers - she has no stinkin’ blog! I’m sorry Karen, but your newsletter is just not enough!

So here’s the deal. Leave a comment telling Karen to GET A BLOG - and win this wonderful Fat Quarter Fun book by Karen (and signed just for you)! Giveaway ends 10pm PST on January 21st, 2008 and a name will be drawn the following day.

Ok… enough about Karen. [begin Jan Brady whine] Karen, Karen, Karen! [/end Jan Brady whine]…

I have my favorite part in Bundles of Fun, and that’s on page 17 - with shots of some of my quilt labels, and one of them couldn’t thrill me more. The label is of my “Basilisa’s Garden” quilt that I named after my late paternal grandmother - the beautiful Basilisa Solorio. OHMYGOSH. My grandmother. In a book. A book I tell you… A BOOK! My dad read it and I thought he was going to cry. Hard to explain… but it means so much to me to have that label in Karen’s book… and for the whole world to see it! So because I’m feelin’ all warm and fuzzy… I’m sweetening the pot with a copy of Fat Quarter Fun from me too.

Two books = two winners! One from Karen, and one from The Favorite Daughter (that’s me, regardless of what Karen says).

Get a blog Karen. Get a blog. :)

  44. The fabulous Angela (Cottage Magpie) allegedly said:

    OMG! I am about splitting my sides reading all the creative and original ways everyone has of saying that Karen needs to have a blog. Since humorous territory is well-covered, I’ll go with boring but direct:





    If not, you’ll be responsible for the collective breath-holding anticipation 40 (now 41) people and the resulting health-impairing blood pressure increase. Our health is in your hands. Think about it.

  45. The fabulous May Britt allegedly said:

    Of course Karen have to start blogging. If she knew how much fun we have here in blogland. Oh…I guess you already told her that.

    So we all look forward when you publish the link to Karen’s blog…………..next week :) LOL

  57. The fabulous Jen allegedly said:

    Karen! Get a blog already!!!

  58. The fabulous lera allegedly said:

    I agree. She needs a blog. More of her craftiness needs to be exposed.

    (A blog-friend and I had a “Fat Quarter Challenge” last year. The challenge was to see how much of a fat quarter you could use in as many different projects as possible.)

  59. The fabulous Patti allegedly said:

    Hey Karen! Don’t you know that everybody who is anybody in the quilting world has a blog! Designers, quilt shop owners, quilters, everybody who counts! You don’t want to be left out of the count I’m sure, so read my lips - get a blog!

  60. The fabulous Nanna Jamma allegedly said:

  61. The fabulous jenny b harris allegedly said:

    …I looked at your studio pic, too Monica so the count would be even… ;o)

  62. The fabulous Laurie Hanlon allegedly said:

    All right. I am in! Karen, get a blog! :)

  63. The fabulous June allegedly said:

    Dear Karen,

    I know you don’t know me but I was once a non-blogger like you. I had a Flickr account wherein I shared my crafting adventures and met many wonderful people who kept encouraging me to start a blog. So, I did–finally. It was terrifying at first and then I realized that what each of us has to say and share with others has just as much merit as anyone else. And so I write blog posts as often as possible which have netted me many friends and constant opportunities to learn and grow.


  64. The fabulous coffeechris allegedly said:

    “I think you can, I think you can, I think you can ….this little engine that could knows you can “do it” be bold behold the blog.

  65. The fabulous Debbie allegedly said:

    While I do read Karen’s newsletter I would surely enjoy reading her blog - oh dear, she doesn’t have one?! Well, only one thing to do….get a blog! :-)

  66. The fabulous Bridget allegedly said:

  67. The fabulous Coralee G allegedly said:

    oh, Karen….look at all the fans, won’t you please start a blog?!?

  68. The fabulous melissa@yummygoods allegedly said:

    Karen, Get thee to a bloggery!!

  69. The fabulous The other Karen allegedly said:

    As the “other” Karen (whom has a blog) I think 67 messages of encouragement should be more than enough… although I’m sure there will be more!

  70. The fabulous Nanette allegedly said:

    I’m number 67! Sheesh I guess I will go buy the book, because it looks FABULOUS. Get a blog!

  71. The fabulous Hjordi allegedly said:

    I know it is a big step Karen, and it feels like a huge comittment at first- but it is SO fun! And think of all the readers you’ll have right away!

  72. The fabulous Rachel allegedly said:

    If a loser like me can have a blog, then someone as important as the AUTHOR of an AWESOME BOOK should DEFINITELY have a blog! ;)

  73. The fabulous Pieces allegedly said:

    I would never, ever deign to tell someone else to get a blog–especially when they write such lovely books! Still…blogging is awfully fun…

  74. The fabulous dorkyquilts allegedly said:

    No blog? KAREN!!! Think of all the fun we’re missing!

  75. The fabulous Funda allegedly said:

    Karen, apparently you need to get a blog. And I need one of these fat quarter quilt books. I love fat quarter quilts!

  76. The fabulous Wylie allegedly said:

    I am reluctant to throw a stone at Karen, when I’m sitting in a glass house myself! :) I don’t have a blog either, and my daughter haunts me about it. BUT, I would love to read more about/by the talented Karen, and I would also love to win a fat quarter book!

  77. The fabulous Moog allegedly said:

    I think Monica gets a commission from getting people to create blogs. I don’t have one, either, and she rags on me about it. I’m content to be a voyeur for now. Maybe when I get more focused…or when hell freezes over - whichever comes first.

  78. The fabulous Sue Goodin allegedly said:

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get a blog. We need immediate access to your creativity.
    Thanks Sue

  79. The fabulous Jen allegedly said:

    Get a blog Karen! Really. This is my first visit here because I’m in the process of creating MY blog. I am looking for other cool blogs to put in my list of cool blogs :) The Happy Zombie is now going on the cool blog list and who knows maybe I’ll be adding Karen’s soon LOL. Good luck.

    PS: I’ll be thanking the Domestic Diva for sending me over.

  81. The fabulous Jackie allegedly said:

So it’s two hours away from my house. Close enough. What’s two hours when you’re talking about a quilt shop? Nothing, I tell you. Nothing.

  106. The fabulous Kim allegedly said:

    Looks like a great book.

  107. The fabulous Stella Snyder allegedly said:

    I should win the book, my last name is Snyder & I’m fat (I hope Dr. Phil isn’t reading this, cause he’d probably want to chat)!

  108. The fabulous monique allegedly said:

  109. The fabulous Reina allegedly said:

    I think it is safe to say you now NEED a blog because all of us are sitting around waiting for it and you would be sad if are kids don’t get fed because we were waiting around. So go get that blog so my kids can eat:) And so I have more fun stuff to look at while they are sleeping.

  113. The fabulous Jean T allegedly said:

Karen, please get a blog and inspire those of us who haven’t yet found the courage and time and energy to start a blog! (Unless, of course, the very thought of adding one more thing to your to-do list makes you want to pull your hair out. In that case we’ll all just be thankful that you’ve written books!)


  116. The fabulous Ashley allegedly said:

    Blog it up Karen! Take the plunge!

  119. The fabulous Mary allegedly said:

    Get a blog, get a life, both four letter words. Life was simpler when I didn’t have a blog making me feel guilty for ignoring it also. But those with so much talent, Karen, (I’m not worthy) should get a blog.

  120. The fabulous SipiweskeQuiltDesigns allegedly said:
