I’m Basically Royalty {Glue Dots Design Team Dottess}

A week or so after BlogHer, I saw an application to be a Glue Dots Dottess Design Team. Honestly, I wasn’t going to apply because I figured all the BIG bloggers would, and well, I’m not, so why bother? But BlogHer inspired me to try to take my blogging to the next level. Am I Dooce? Not exactly, but I decided to try anyway. I am crafty, I have a decent audience size and I try to post kick-ass tutorials.

And guess what?



See the full announcement and the 19 other Dottesses over here. This means I’ll be using their products regularly to provide you all with awesome crafts/projects/tips for using Glue Dots. You will NOT see me making fancy cards or scrapbook pages, but luckily the other Dottesses kick-ass at that kinda thing. I shall be sticking to what I am good at. Simple, home décor that anyone can do. Promise! And as a Dottess, I would never lie!

Basically, as a Dottess, I think I’m technically like right under Kate Middleton in terms of royalty. It’s like Queen –> Princess –> Dottess.

I so need a tiara. I wonder if that comes with my Glue Dots

But yay! *throws confetti*

What else? Oh, 2 (ok, 3) more things, and then I’ll bid you adieu til tomorrow.


1.) If you could PLEASE vote for me, I’ll love you forever and give you an honorary royalty title of your choice. It literally takes 5 seconds to vote on any of my projects in the Krylon Dual Spray Paint Duel. Click any of my project links below, click on vote and you’re done. It took me longer to type the directions than it would for you to vote for me. If ever I’ve inspired you, made you laugh, made you want to create/craft, or made you want to drink margaritas, please vote. Please and thank you. You can vote once every 24 hours, so if you’re extremely bored at work, vote once a day and that knocks 10 seconds off your day. Ok?

2.) Coming up this week is a Coffee Mate Natural Bliss review/giveaway (I have lotsa prizes!), a DIY fall wreath tutorial, and the premiere of a new challenge I am creating to get us all a little lighter before 2011 is over. What else… if you want free yogurt, check out this post.

And finally, I love to end blog posts with a question to hopefully get your comments & input, so what would you like to see more of on this blog? More crafts? More reviews? More weight loss stories? Please tell me. While I do blog for myself as an outlet, I do absolutely love providing good content that hopefully people read and enjoy. So dish! What do you want on this blog? Can’t wait to read what you all say. Smooches!

    Hello, hello!! I guess I'm kind of co-royalty (but do I have to wear one of those rediculous hats like everyone else wore to the big wedding??). Glad to see there's someone else who's not a 'big blogger'!

    Congrats Monica! Welcome to the new team! I've always gotten a kick out of saying that I'm a Dottess and excited to be saying it again for another year. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
