Giveaway! The Pleated Poppy

Hi!  I'm Lindsey Cheney.  I am married to an incredibly supportive husband and am mom to 3 littles, 6 and under. My days are full of sewing, home schooling, crafting, snuggling, avoiding the laundry, sneaking bites of chocolate, and wondering "is it naptime yet?"

Lindsey is the creator of one amazing little shop!  {The Pleated Poppy} Look at all the cute things she makes. 







Lindsey sure is talented isn't she?  I love everything in her shop! 

Want to win a $25 gift certificate to spend however you would like at The Pleated Poppy?  Here's how to enter:

Mandatory:
1) Visit The Pleated Poppy, then come back here and tell me what you think
2) Become a follower of The Pleated Poppy Blog.
4) Display the Pleated Poppy button on your blog
5) Blog, facebook, and/or tweet about this giveaway (one entry for each thing)
6) Check out Win, Lose, or Blog
7) Leave me a comment telling me your thoughts on this: I am thinking of getting rid of my rigid schedule (not that I always keep to it anyways, lol).  The blog will still stay pretty much the same.  Same content, etc.  I just wont have a set schedule per say (expect Idea Sharin' Wednesday of course).  This is my way of announcing that switch (I've been so busy lately and I would be happier if I didn't set such a tight schedule for myself) but I do want to know how you all feel about that!

Thanks for entering!  Have a good Monday :)

  5. I think you should do what is best for you and your family as far as a schedule goes. It it would make you happier, then ditch the schedule and just have fun.

  8. I think a schedule is only important if it helps you. Otherwise, out it goes! :) I enjoy reading what you write, it doesn't matter what comes when. Thanks!

  10. I find that if I don't have at least a schedule outline that I forget to post! But, one thing that I love about Blogger is that I can create posts and tell Blogger when to publish them. This helps a TON, because I can write two or three posts at a time and then not worry about my blog for a few days!

  18. I think your switch is a good idea. I think its good to have somewhat of a tentative schedule, but its almost too restricting when you have everything planned. But that's just me. Love the blog!

  21. I know it's tough to keep a rigid schedule, although it is nice to know when everything is going on. Maybe you can do something every other week instead?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I checked out Win, Lose, or Blog, great idea!

  24. I support the switch! It's just too stressful for me to follow a rigid schedule, you wouldn't want this blog to become more work than fun!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love her "What I Wore Wednesday." It make me think about my outfits before I leave the house. It's like "should I wear a scarf? throw on some bracelets? Ad a few rings? Just those little things that can make an outfit feel so much better.

  31. I think you should definitely not have a too tight schedule with this blog. But of course I love reading your blog. I just think blogging should be fun and not stressful. I definitely think you should blog, but not make it a chore for yourself.

  32. I think the Win, Lose, or Blog is an interesting blog. They are right about the blogging and eating combination. I am eating dinner right now as I type. There isn't enough hours in a day ...sometimes.

  37. Hello sweet Jill - I think you should blog as much or as little as you want to! Blogging should be a blessing to you, and if it becomes work then that's a sign to step back a bit and re-evaluate things. I am really enjoying getting to know you and your sweet blog!

  52. As for your schedule, take care of you and your family first. And, I do think it's interesting to read about what's going on vs. having to follow a strict schedule all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  53. And I just went over to Win, Lose, or Blog.. cool idea. I had to go ahead and subscribe. I've been trying to lose some baby weight myself and it's been a beast! I hope to add more motivation through the site.

  60. hey jill,
    i think getting rid of all the scheduled days is a great idea for your blog. i think everyone likes the idea sharing wednesday but it gets hard to remember more than one day per week on a single blog. that way you wont burn out everyone!, AND YOUrself! xx
