BlogtippingYep, it’s Blogtipping day! The first calendar day of each month is a new Blogtipping Day.

Here’s my list for June. I’m in a sewing mood, so these blogs all have a sewing projects in them. Enjoy the great blogs!

Blogtippee #1: Melly & Me

1. I love this blog! I stumbled upon it earlier this week and fell in love with all of their projects! It’s a sisters blog that is filled with sewing projects.

2. Lots of great pictures! I’m a visual person, so it’s hard for me to follow directions without pictures! Their step by step tutorial on making Scrappy Cabins will make this a very easy project to complete!

3. Very well organized blog and beautiful layout. Lots of links to other great craft blogs! I could spend hours going from blog to blog to blog!

Blogtippee #2: Posie Gets Cozy

1. Absolutely gorgeous pictures! This girl takes amazing photos and has them all through her blog! My daughter, who is really into photography, is going to love this blog!

2. Great category list so that you can find her projects very easily. Her category He Makes Things spotlights all the projects made by her husband, who is also very talented!

3. Her fabric and sewing category is filled with unique ideas that are very colorful and fun! I love the flower pins that she makes. From what I read, it sounds like they are being featured in the June issue of Country Living! How cool is that?

Blogtippee #3 Quilt While You’re Ahead

1. Another amazing blog with absolutely gorgeous photos! I have got to buy a new camera and take more pictures of my projects! I love all the flower flowers, lots of bright beautiful colors!

2.  The Quilt Show pictures are gorgeous!  She has 13 photos of quilts she saw while at a quilt show. It’s hard to pick a favorite when they are all so unique in style, design and color!

3.  Besides quilting, she has all kinds of other sewing projects, from purses and bags to embroidery to crocheting!  She does a little of everything…

That’s it for this month! Take a moment to check out each of these fantastic craft blogs! Come back next month to see who I Blogtipped!

Blogtipping Day!

Filed Under Crafts, Blogtipping | 5 Comments

It’s Blogtipping Day! And it’s also the first anniversary of Blogtipping! The first monthly Blogtipping Day was exactly one year ago today. Time flies when you’re surprising other bloggers with free praise and blogging tips!

I Love Blogtippng SignBlogtipping Definition: Blogtipping is where you publish a blog post in which you link to three unsuspecting blogs and offer three compliments and/or one helpful tip to each blogger. (Or adapt those numbers to your own preferences; the principle of selflessness is what matters most here.) Blogtipping is a refreshing and useful surprise that can start a blogger’s month with a huge smile!

The first calendar day of each month is a new Blogtipping Day. Who will you sneak up behind and tip next time?

I plan to surprise three bloggers on the first calendar day of each month and offer each one three items of praise. The idea behind blogtipping is to give a tip as well, but I’m still very new to blogging myself and will hold off on the tipping and just give praise this month.

Since the purpose of blogtipping is simply to help and encourage other bloggers, please feel free to blogtip whenever, whomever and however you wish.

So, on to my list!

Blogtippee 1: Craft Blog - Stitching the Night Away

1. Wow, what a fantastic blog! It’s been around for over a year now and is chock full of fantastic crafts! I could click on every category and find tons of projects I’d like to try!

2. Filled with pictures! I love seeing pictures on blogs. Great, great job!

3. I applaud you for all the Charity posts! I especially like the Relay for Life ribbon. As the mother of a child who is a cancer survivor, this one hits home…. Great job!

Blogtippee 2: I Love Crafts & Craft Blogs

1. Wow, this blog has TONS of information on it! If I’m looking for any kind of craft blog, I’m sure I could find it here!

2. Love all the information on dolls. I need a few hours to get through it all though!
