Cutest Darn Apron Ever - A Giveaway

Bakers and crafters beware! It’s about to get ADOREABLE on Still Living The Dream.

Look. At. This. Apron!

Is it the cutest thing ever? I just got TWO of these vintage sugar sack aprons from my friends at Imperial Sugar. I’m keeping one because, truth is - I’m a hot mess in the kitchen and the craft room.

Last week I was painting a paper mache egg and I lost my grip (I guess because it was so heavy - you know….about two ounces or so) and during it’s long free fall from such a great height (I’m 4’10” ya’ll) it hit my shirt in THREE different places, a chair, table, my wall AND the carpet. Seriously. Robin’s egg blue paint everywhere.

True Story. I wish a Guinness Representative  had been there. I had to have broken some kind of idiot crafter world record.

Sadly, I’m not any cleaner in the kitchen. Life is just messy here. Fun. But still messy.

So one of the aprons is for me…I think we all would agree it’s for the best.

But the other one is for a lucky Still Living The Dream reader!

A Giveaway!

Just leave a comment about where you like to get creative and messy…the kitchen or craft room (or both?!!) If you want to share a messy adventure - please do. It makes me feel better to know that I’m not alone! A winner will be selected at random on Monday, April 1, 2013. No foolin!

    I love to bake… in fact I need to buy more sugar. I make bread, cake, and cookies. I also crochet small portable pieces which I take with me everywhere.

    Bernice Orr says:

    I always get messy in the kitchen and my families’ workshop. My grandmother wasn’t able to cook when I was young, so from age 8 I was baking cakes and pies and getting messy! And my grandfather always took me to his shopto do woodwork and paint. So we built chests for my Barbies and I would paint them and come home with paint all over me! I always use Imperial Sugar now (being my cousin is a top manager at the Corporate office)!

    That is a lot of comments. I do follow you on Facebook and I am super messy in the kitchen. The rest of the house always comes second because I probably spend 1/2 of my day in the kitchen. And what a messy cook I am. But in the end it is all worth it. I am a great cook!!

    I used to get very frustrated when things were messy. Then I had children, five of them. Including two sets of twins. I quickly got used to messy and found that it is fun! We like to get messy whenever the opportunity presents itself at our house. We get messy in the kitchen making chocolate cake and messing out in the yard for a mud/water fight (we live in the country where you can get real messy). Messy is when memories happen…..
