Next week will be an APRONPALOOZA!

UPDATE: The contests are going up 3 times daily now! Go to my main page to see the latest contest!


I don’t know exactly why but I’ve recently become enamored with all of the adorable aprons that I have seen popping up all over the internet. It seems that the apron is making a major come back over the last couple of years and it’s popularity just continues to increase! Well, I have spent many a recent evening perusing the adorable and sometimes even sexy apron patterns and prints that are out there now and I must say, folks, I think this is a fabulous development! And this must mean a lot to you because I own very few aprons myself (a problem which I intend to remedy soon!)

In fact ladies (and gents who know a lady who might like a new apron) I have decided that you all will benefit from my recent obsession with all things aprony. Next week I will be hosting a series of apron giveaways sponsored by a variety of apron makers! Sometime later this week I will maybe give a sneak peek at some of the apron makers I will be highlighting.

This is going to be lots of fun, but obviously lots more fun if more people participate so spread the word! If you want a post button for your blog just copy the following code and paste it in the body of your post. (PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LINK TO MY SITE IN ORDER TO ENTER THE CONTESTS! Though I always appreciate “link love” it is not required to play next week! Just show up, follow the rules [which will be posted Sunday, June 3rd] and you’re entered!) :^D

  5. It’s in my side bar!!!!!EXTRA Large in case I win. hee hee

  6. Awesome idea. My two older kids made aprons last year in a sewing project and made one for me, too. DD made a light pink with lace apron, DS made a camo one. 🙂 My son found he really enjoys sewing. I am glad, because now he repairs the loose buttons and such. 🙂 DD hems, too. Can’t wait for the fun! (I will be going out of town on Wed. for 2 1/2 weeks, though. Have fun without me. 😦 ) LOL

  7. Thanks to everyone who is helping spread the word! It should be fun!! I’m getting excited. I wish I could win them because there are some seriously cute aprons up for grabs!! Aww Jenn! I’m sorry you’ll be gone! Maybe you can sneak a minute on the computer somewhere along the way!

  8. This sounds like so much fun! I can’t wait to see the aprons. Your button’s in my sidebar–hope the contest is a great success.

    In the past few months I’ve been thinking about how handy aprons are and that I’d like one…but I keep forgetting to look for one, or make one. I’d rather win one! LOL

  10. What fun, I’m putting it on my sidebar right now!Love those vintage looking aprons, too cute.

  11. Got it added to sidebar, should be fun!

  12. Count me in – I got the button on my sidebar, now what do I do???

  13. Karmyn r, just sit tight until next week. :^D Right now I just want to let everyone know about it and get the word out so that I can have more than 16 people participating. Hee hee! Every day next week there will be a giveaway/contest to enter (and I promise it will be much easier to enter than my Netflix contest was!)

    What a great idea! I’m glad to see aprons becoming cool!

  15. How exciting! I posted with the linky immediately after getting the details. You better believe I will be lurking around EVERY day next week to see what is going on. I will even be chaperoning a youth camp but somehow, I am going to log on and check it all out!!!

  16. Oh, I’m putting a button up right after I leave this comment! I’m totally enamored with aprons right now and I could some since I only have one (sniff…sniff)!

  17. Sounds exciting, Nan! I can’t wait to see the aprons. . .

    I just added the button! I have been meaning to buy my very first apron for some time now. I AM DEFINATELY motivated now.Linda

  19. Most definitely interested–I have an apron but who can’t have more of a good thing?

  20. Cute Aprons!! I’m totally on board. I don’t how I’ve never read your blog before now, but wow, will I be back!I found you through the apron banner on My life as Annie’s blog.Haley

  21. Queen Of My Domain May 30, 2007 — 10:23 am

    How cute Nan. Love the idea.

  22. I couldn’t agree more! I just completed a dishtowel apron for my 7 year old daughter. I will have to cut the dishtowel down even more for my 3 year old, but she will not be left out! I also plan to sew up the apron pattern I bought this last spring. It is so cute and doesn’t cut you in the middle. (Which is not a good look for me!) I am glad to see the apron coming back. And it does put you in the mood to be a homemaker. It’s true!

  23. O.k..I did a whole blog post about the apronpalooza on apronstrings…looking forward to it…

    I love aprons. I starting sewing a vintage style apron just last week. I think I found a new love.

  27. The cute pattern button is up on my sidebar. I love aprons and vintage patterns, too! Looks like lots of fun!

    Wear your aprons as fashion! Be an apronista! They look really good with jeans.
