A Great Way To Start 2012...........

As you can see I have had a little revamp here at Mad About Bags, a new header showing some of my craft makes and a few little changes with colour and text.
I have found over the past year or so of blogging that the direction I thought my blog would take i.e networking for my mad about bags websites hasn't happened and my blog has become so much more... I have taken part in some fantastic swaps, "met" some truly wonderful people and found a passion for photography.
My crafting has also branched out in many different ways, I've learnt to crochet, tried my hand at applique, quilting and much more hence the addition of "and so much more" to my blog title. I hope that I can continue to try new things, whether they be crafty or not and that I get to meet some more amazing people along the way.....

Talking of amazing people some of you will already know Heather from The Patchwork Heart, but if you don't then do pop over and say Hello. Well back in November Christmas Heather blogged Pay It Forward (PIF) and I was lucky enough to be selected to receive a gift from Heather and this is what she sent me in the post a few days ago...
pretty packages all tied up with string...
a fabric flower keyring
a gorgeous HOME SWEET HOME patchwork kit
I love the colours in this kit and can't wait to start it
a shabby chic fabric heart
here are my PIF gifts all together 
Here's how to continue the Pay It Forward and be in with a chance to receive something made by yours truly...

So the rules of the pay-it-forward are:
 I need to find three bloggers who would like a handmade gift from me
 and who are prepared to do the same, and I have 365 days in which to do it.
If that appeals to you just leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite colours.
The closing date will be 16th January
and if more than three people are interested, names will be drawn from a hat.
I don't know what I'm going to make yet but I can guarantee you'll like the colours
and I promise it won't take me a year!


  1. Hello Tracy, how could I not ask to be in this, I love your creations and your photography, and am so pleased to have been your blogging and crafting friend. So please put my name in the hat,
    Love Joy x x
    p.s. Blue is my favourite colour

  2. ooh I think i could manage this (if I am lucky) I love all colours but lets go for blue. fingers crossed.

  3. Oo I think this could be fun :) put my name in that hat too... Love the new look blog by the way... Very nice xx

  4. Love your new header - in fact, a couple of the items were sent to me in swaps!
    (I'll pass on the PIF this time, btw)
    Happy New Year!

  5. Your blogs looking good, must revamp my header this year. I'd like the chance to be included in your PIF please, colours wise I like lilacs and pastels or turquoise and duck egg blues, pretty much a wide spectrum :)

  6. Hi Tracy - would love to be involved in my 2nd swap! I like reds at the moment .
    My son is writing your son a letter - we will send a NZ rugby mag over too for him!


I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on my blog and I will try to answer as many as I can. thanks Tracy
