Just so y’all know – I never receive compensation from a company, designer or author for lauding a particular product or book.

This giveaway is the result of an email from Caleb. He’d written that upon visiting my website, he thought his fabrics to be perfectly suited to the vintage spirit of my line of aprons. I decided to check up on Caleb’s genuineness and see if he was really familiar with my aprons or what. So I called him.

Judi’s book is just wonderful. How she managed the research, writing and project design while pregnant and mommy to a toddler is beyond me. I’ve been working a year now on a project that has much cross-over with her book’s contents, and I wanted her to know I hadn’t swiped from her hard work. So I called her.

Both Caleb and Judi are the nicest and most agreeable creative types one could wish to meet. I thought to combine their offerings because of their complementary nature.

I hope you’ll take the time to visit their sites and learn of their endeavors. Creating can be lonely work, and I know they will appreciate your visit.
