When the lovely Scottish Cat Morley, founder of Cut Out and Keep, asked if I’d like to be a Sewing Superstar on her amazing site, I didn’t have to think about it very long.
OF COURSE I WOULD!!!
Cat and her fiance, Tom Waddington, have millions of visitors to their site each month, and have developed a wonderful community for crafters, sewers, and cooks to share and learn from each other.
Last week, she published seven of my refashion tutorials, one each day. We would both be honored if you would head over there and check out The Renegade Seamstress page.
If you enjoy listening to stories of how people have grown their blogs into successful enterprises as much as I do, you might even like watching the Cut Out + Keep story that Google turned into a video. (Even though it is a plug for AdSense, to me, the minute long video was well worth the watch.)
Seeing as I’m of Scottish descent, it was fun to watch the video, get to know her a bit, and hear Cat’s accent. I’d love to visit Scotland someday to meet her in person.
Speaking of Scotland, if I’m ever lucky enough to travel there, the first thing on my agenda will be to head on over to my castle for a photo shoot!
“You have a castle in Scotland?” I can hear you asking.
Well, sort of.
You see, my maiden name is Crichton. Pronounced like Michael Crichton, the author of Jurassic Park. (Oh, so fun to name drop) And I am a direct descendent of Lord William Crichton, who was Chancellor of Scotland (1439-1443 & 1448-1454). This was his castle and even though it changed hands throughout the ages, it’s still called the Crichton Castle, so I’m going with it. :)
Perfect spot for a refashion photo shoot, don’t you think?!!!??!
Well, I hope you all have been enjoying your holidays and here’s to a successful and prosperous 2014 for all of you!
