If You’re Going To Be A Loser….

If you’re going to be a loser….

Then at least lose to yourself.

Last weekend I was invited to a Pampered Chef party where a prize was being given to the best apron.

So in true Aimee fashion, I set out to construct the most impractical apron in attempt to win by cuteness default.

I spotted a vintage inspired apron in the latest issue of Apronology, and quickly decided that’s the direction I would head.

There was lace. There was pearls. And there was rosettes. Lots and lots of rosettes.

Here’s my little apron in all her glory.

Fancy schmancy, right?

And here’s a photo of the ladies who entered the contest.

The chick next to me in pink is wearing a Jessie Steele apron. And I’m kinda smitten with it. And with Jessie Steele.

So that means I’ll probably be making one similar soon. Which means more apron inventory in my pantry. {sigh}.

And see that lovely green “Gaga” apron.  She totally cheated and brought her matching grandbaby’s apron and kicked all of our booties. And if you didn’t already know by now, I made them both.

So she won the prize, but I also got a lovely citrus peeler because I made the winning apron.

And that made me happy. But not as happy as having one of my aprons win!

Oh, and see the lady in the Easter apron on the far right? Her two little girls are getting the most adorable spring aprons in their Easter baskets. I just finished one of them tonight, and boy oh boy is it my new favorite!

One last thing- did you notice the coupon widget on the right hand side of my page? I’ve teamed up with Retailmenot to ensure that you never order craft supplies online ever again without snagging a lovely discount code!

I ordered cupcake fabric the other day that was already on sale. Then I used my additional 15% code, found exclusively on my own page and got myself quite the deal.

And better yet, I’ve streamlined it for you to show you the current discounts at my favorite places.

You’re welcome!

  1. Ha ha! This makes you a double winner in my opinion!

    • Ha ha, that’s a great way to look at it! It would’ve totally sucked to lose with 2 of the 5 aprons being my own!

    • - Love them! I collect ponars and my sister makes super cute mommy and daughter and or son matching ones. I think number 2 up there is my favorite up there!!! You would look so stinking cute in any of those.

  2. Love that apron!
