Calling all you Crafty Ladies!

I just realized that I’m leaving on my “Secret Destination” trip next Friday!! I still don’t know where I’m going – but I’m still getting “clues” each night. 
 I can’t wait! I was thinking it might be fun to have a  
“Secret Destination” trip contest while I am gone. 
Each day I will post a picture clue  — kind of like a “Where in the world is Jen?” thing. And then the people that guess the correct location will be put into a pot and the winner will get a fun giveaway from wherever I go — 
local goodies, jewelry, whatever I can find.  
Does that sound fun?
So — while I’m away I am looking for some crafty ladies to post some cute projects on tatertots & jello! I would love to have you do a project and talk about your blog! There are so many talented, talented ladies out there. 
I would love to spotlight your blog. 
Let me know!  
I have 5 spots open. 
Email me or leave me a comment and I will contact you! I will need the spotlight posts by next Thursday — March 4th.
I Hope you are having a wonderful day! 
If you are in Utah, tune in tomorrow to catch me on “Studio 5″ .

I will be showing how to make my burlap Spring wreath!


  1. Fantastic idea! It's always wonderful to see what the rest of the world is working on. Thanks for opening the curtains by featuring other diy'ers! I'm an old blogging pro, a crafter at heart, but new to the world of Craft Blogging. But I would absolutely love to create something for you! It would be a true honor to guest blog, and be featured here. Thanks for the opportunity!


  2. We would love to guest post for you sometime. Any chance that at a future date we could talk you into doing the same for us?

  3. hi jen, i would love to be a guest blogger i just started blogging again but by the time you would get to me on your list I just might be ready and confident to do it:) thanks jamee from jameehomemaker.blogspot.com

  4. Judging by that clue, my guess is Puerto Rico. We lived there for 3 years, it is an amazing place. I'll have to keep checking back to see if I'm even close!

  5. I would be honored if you would consider me for a future guest spot.
    Thanks & have fun!

  6. I would love to guest post for you someday! It would be a dream come true (haha) :)

    Love the new look of the blog!!!

    Emaild you about being spotlighted… or is it spotlit?… or spotted? either way, I emailed you about it:)

    ~ Emily N. from "too Blessed to Stress"

  16. Wow what a fun adventure you have coming up!! Sounds very therapeutic. I started a crafty blog around the time I began working graveyards shifts in the ER- found that if I crafted during the slow hours, it would help pass the time nad keep me awake- it's been a lot of fun. I love St Patricks day and have a couple ideas for the holiday
    Thanks for your cute blog!!!

  17. How exciting for you to have a destination…especially a secret one! I can't wait to find out where you end up! I am thinking an island somewhere or a country like Costa Rica…

    I would be honored to be featured on your blog sometime. I get so inspired everytime I look at your blog…


    Have a fantastic trip!

  20. What a neat idea. I love that you get to go on a secret trip.

    I can't wait to guess.

    I wish I was in Utah. I so miss that place. I currently live in Arkansas, and was making the journey home to Utah when a big snow storm came. My dad and sisters have yet to see my baby girl who is 4 months now.

    Any hoo.. live it up in Utah for me.

    I would love to be spotlighted. Here is the link to my blog:


    I hope you enjoy it.

  21. You did it! Yay…how did it go? Will you be posting the video for all of us to see??

    That sounds like a fun idea…that is so exciting…a secret destination. Hubby is a keeper for sure!

  22. Embellished Bayou says:

    That sounds like so much fun! I wish my hubby was that creative, I would love to be surprised with a trip to somewhere warm right about now!

    I'm always open for doing a guest post or blog swap. Looks like you've already got a lot of volunteers, but keep me in mind in the future!

  23. Kelli and Crystal at Thingamabobs and Doodads says:

    Hello Jen! Thanks for including us in the surpise trip. I'm excited for you! I would love to guest blog…pick me, pick me!

  26. Pam @ bibbidi-bobbidi-beautiful says:

    Have a fantastic time on your trip! Sounds so fun!!

    I know there's probably a lot of competition for the 5 spots, but I would be over the moon if you chose to spotlight my blog. Did you intend to highlight existing posts or were you looking for new material? I have a few projects coming up so I could do either way!
    Anyway, I hope your trip is a wonderful, renewing experience!

  27. I too would love a chance! Have an awesome trip!

  28. Tarrah at The Pottery Shed says:

  39. I saw on Studio 5 that we'd be seeing your cute wreath tomorrow! I am excited! So, I am probably late since there are already 26 posts. But if you would like to highlight our blog (sweetcharli.blogspot.com) it would be so much fun and would mean the world to us. Your blog is and has always been an inspiration to us! Hope to hear from you!

  40. PS – How does one email you from your blog?

  41. I couldn't figure out how to email you, so a comment will have to work. I live in Wyoming, but actually get Studio 5, so I will be tuning in! I love your blog. I am just getting started, but would love to be a guest or highlighted on your blog. I have some fun fabric flowers to post soon, as well as some more fun recipes and projects. Check it out… I would love feedback from such an expert, even if you don't choose me :)


  42. AM from White House, Black Shutters says:

    What a creative hubby and great idea, looking forward to seeing the clues and where you end up! :)

    Like everyone else, I'd be honored to be considered for the guest post! I emailed you with some ideas I have cooking for upcoming projects that I'd like to tackle this weekend.

    Have fun getting ready for your trip!

    -Ann Marie
