My Double Chin Don't Lie & Sponsor Spotlight

Hi Friends!

Happy Monday! I hope the start to all of your weeks is going swell.

I have officially decided today that I am going to significantly reduce my carb intake and not drink alcohol for a full month.

I know, I'm crazy right? No Pinot?? Seriously, I must have hit my head.

You see, I could be nicknamed "Italy." I am a pasta junkie. Ravioli? Ziti? Garlic Bread? 

Check. Check. Check. On a regular basis. What can I say? I like  love  adore my carbs.

Which has led to this....

You know how Shakria's hips don't lie? Ya, my double chin don't lie.

So, it's time to take the plunge. It's time to say goodbye to my biffle the baguette and hello to veggies.

I am going to need all ya'lls support to successfully do this, so any helpful advice or encouragement would be appreciated!


Now, it's time to introduce one of my amazing sponsors this month-Aprile from The Steady Hand Blog!!

What is your blog name and why did you choose it?

The Steady Hand
I named my blog The Steady Hand because that is the same name as my Etsy Shop. I wanted all my website to have the same name to make it easier for my fans to find me.

How long have you been blogging for? Why did you start?
I started blogging in January of 2011 so that would mean I have been blogging for about 2 1/2 years.

If you could be any candy bar what would you be and why?
I would love to be a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (hopefully that is considered a candy bar, if not it should be!). Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are different from all the other candy bar's and like me is unique in its own way and very sweet.

What is a favorite adventure you've had?
My husband and I went on vacation to Greece in 2007. We stayed in Athens and while we loved the city we decided to visit the island of Santorini for a little more peace and quiet. It was the best adventure we have ever had. We rented 4-wheelers and explored the island and all of its little nooks and crannies. 

What sorts of things do you blog about?
I share free crochet patterns that I come across, crochet patterns that I design, other Etsy Sellers and Shops, crafts and sewing projects that I have done, Etsy Treasuries and other topics that are relevant to me.

What are you really passionate about?
I am passionate about my family. Everything I do, I do for them and for their well-being.

Where can we follow your adventures? (Ie. all of your social media handles)
Find me on Twitter:
