Behind The Scenes: Craftroom Crush & A Belated Giveaway

February 1, 2013



5 signs that you are a busy-body:

{1} You search and search for the remote control, only to find that it’s under a huge panel of beadboard, inside your sneaker. Don’t ask. I have no explanation.

{2} You reach into your supply drawer, pull out your tape runner and find an M&M stuck to it. Again. Don’t ask. No clue. I’m pretty sure it’s been a while since I had M&M’s in the house.

{3} 3:00am bedtime feels like you’re turning in way ahead of schedule.

{4} In the course of a week, you manage to lose your cell phone, camera battery, camera charger and though it’s not definitively lost yet, the whereabouts of your neon yellow, pointy toe flats (left shoe only) is yet to be determined.

{5} You are a week late in celebrating your second year of blogging!

Yep, I’m guilty of all five, but today I’m here to remedy the last in the list! See – last Friday, Damask Love turned two years-old! It’s true! This blog is entering the terrible twos (but let’s hope for everyone’s sake that it’s not too terrible). This time last week, I was in a whirlwind of Alt Summit awesomeness, which distracted me from the birthday festivities! Let’s fix that, mmmkay?

To celebrate two years of blogging, I’m giving away two of these seriously adorable totes from Handmade and Craft. I carried mine to CHA a few weeks ago and it was a hit! Now you can win one of your own just by commenting!!!



…and for a second chance to win…visit me on the Damask Love Facebook page where I’m giving away another one of these totes! Since I don’t like just having you comment, and in the spirit of me being an absent-minded busy-body, how about you answer this question:

What's the most absent-minded thing you've done?

*Comments close at midnight EST on Sunday, February 3, 2013

…and just in case you’d like a little more Damask Love in your life, today!


  • There’s a new challenge blog in town, folks and your’s truly is on the roster!
  • One of my biggest blog crushes is featuring my ALT Summit business card…twice! Checky!
  • I guess “firecracker” is a pretty accurate way to describe me.

  1. Congrats on 2 years!!!! My most absent minded thing happened when I was talking on my cell phone with my sister while I was cleaning. I was in the midst of organizing and I realized I did not remember where I had put down my cell. I told my sister I could not remember I had put it and started making a big mess. She started asking me where was the last place I remember having it and I could not for the life of me remember. I hung up my phone and started looking for it. Suddenly, I realized that my phone had not been lost (I had been on it the whole time). I called my sister back and told her we’re crazy because we did not realize that we both know where my cell phone was. Yup, that’s what happens to me when I get in my zone. (^_^)

  2. I’m so absent-minded some mornings that I can’t remember if I’ve conditioned my hair or just shampooed it. Now that’s bad! Your tote bag message is priceless. My friends would get the biggest kick out of me sporting that bag. Congratulations on your 2nd anniversary of blogging! I’ve yet to take that plunge but truly enjoy following yours. WTG, Amber!

  3. Congratulations on the 2 year blogaversary! The most absent-minded thing I’ve done is a toss up between two parking incidents. I NEVER lose my car, except these two times. Once I went to a shopping centre twice in a day. The second time I went back to my car where I parked the first time and after 10 minutes of heart-thumping worry, I remembered I’d parked somewhere else this time! The second time was when a friend and I went to a craft expo together. We were chatting so much, we didn’t notice where we parked. We ended up having to walk outside and retrace the car route when we arrived to remember where the car was, LOL!

  4. I”m absent minded all the time…lost key, things in frig that melt…forgotten appointmnets…too busy crafting! Congrats on your anniversary!

  5. Congrats! And that bag is so awesome! šŸ™‚ Once I put the “magic shell” ice cream syrup in the fridge. That was the end of that.

  6. Congrats on the the two year anniversary & thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
    Let’s see…the most absent-minded thing I’ve done (recently) is leave the garage door open at night (this is a problem as the garage leads right into our home and the adjoining door doesn’t have a lock). Thankfully, nothing happened as a result of my absentmindedness, but it scared me into double (read:triple) checking the garage door at night.
