Thank You, Thank You!


Thank you Whrrl Social Luxe Lounge

This morning as I was making the internet rounds, I found out that I won the Whrrl/SocialLuxe Lounge BlogHer Scholarship! This truly is such a dream. I can’t wait to party with the ladies in the Windy City. Thanks to all of you that “liked” my story and to everyone who reads this blog. I can’t wipe the incredibly large smile off my face, I’m just too stinking excited.

Please Whrrl Me to Chicago!



My heart is racing and I’ve had butterflies in my stomach for the last week. I can’t stop thinking about going to BlogHer! Christopher was going to surprise me with a ticket to BlogHer a couple of months ago, but soon found out it was all SOLD OUT! I’ve been given one more chance to get to go to BlogHer, thanks to Whrrl and SocialLuxe Lounge. For the contest we had to answer the questions, How has blogging made you famous? and Why should YOU go to BlogHer? all with the Whrrl photo story format.

I hadn’t heard of Whrrl until just a couple of weeks ago when my friend told me about the contest. It’s a very new site (from what I gather), that caters to blogging all from your phone. It’s a cool idea, to blog on the go letting your followers and friends know what you’re up to and where. There’s a bit of a learning curve with the platform, but it’s sweet that you can sync your stories with facebook and twitter.

So if you please, check out Whrrl and read my story! Help me get to BlogHer by clicking the “I Like” heart button underneath the first photo. Please pass the word to your friends, because I would REALLY like to go.

Whrrl Me to BlogHer Photo Sonnet

Whrrl Me to BlogHer Photo Sonnet

Grew up artsy and crafty, made stuff from the start.
Design, cook, paint, sew –– my life story.
My man calls me names like “clever” and “smart”.
Not enough! Give me fame! Give me glory!

Launched a blog in oh-seven to showcase my work,
counting Google stats on my right hand.
Lust for comments hit hard, I was begging “De-lurk!”
and with one breakout post fame began.

The readers poured in once I made Design Mom,
and my Poopy Clutch hit the prime time.
Blog after blog played my cute, crafty song,
throwing link love my way –– so sublime.

Web fame comes on fast, next step’s no surprise;
snag a jet to BlogHer’s Windy City.
I’ll meet, greet and network with stars in my eyes,
making friends with the fresh, fun and witty.

Twitter peeps, Friend Connect, to blog’s A-list I go!
Por favor, Whrrl me off to Chicago?!
