Some of my long time readers will remember that I started this blog to sell my handy dandy oilcloth aprons because Barbara at Mommy Life was lamenting the fact that she could no longer find her favorite apron for sale. (You can order one at the above link.)
With this photo, I happened to be the first place winner of Barbara's 2006 Apron Power Contest, in which the prize was the famous oilcloth apron. After I received my prize, I looked it over and thought, "Why, I could make these aprons my very own self and sell them to happy homemakers far and wide."
Barbara sweetly encouraged me to go ahead with my endeavor and even advised me on how to set up a blog so people could find the aprons. So, that's exactly what I did!
And now, Barbara is bringing back the Apron Power Contest version 2010! To enter, take a photo of yourself in an apron and send it to Barbara by May 5th. Here is what Barbara says about the upcoming contest:
Winners announced on Mother's Day May 9.
First place winner to receive a complete set of my 6 still-in-print books.
2nd-5th place winners: autographed copies of Lord, Please Meet Me in the Laundry Room
I have read Barbara's books and they are WONDERFUL! So, get on those aprons and send in your photos! You never know if you will win and launch yourself into a blog author who entertains her audience with daily doses of nuttiness.
