Catch-up …

Not Ketchup (bleh!!) …

With last week busy with the Spring Board Creative Collaboration, I have a bit to catch up on here on the blog … mostly in the form of pictures.

{I heard you just sigh in relief … glad that my wordy wordy wordyness was not going to take over yet another post. Well we’ll see …}

Hoop Art Swap {hosted by Life Made Lovely}
You might remember I showed you the adorable hoop I received {from The Sweetest Petunia}::

And here is what I sent her. Maybe to hang in her soon-to-be Master bedroom with her new husband :).

I had SO much fun creating this little hoop that I’m hoping to add some to the shop soon. I think they would make a perfect baby, wedding or birthday gift. Easy to personalize and sentimental. In the mean time I’m happy to take custom orders. {Heart ‘flower’ completely inspired by Pilli Pilli.}

Speaking of custom orders, here’s a recent one::

Another “Everyday Fresh Tote” … this one heading ‘down under’ to a new mama in Australia. Love the colors … so fun! Picturing it all loaded up with goodies for her ‘fresh’ little guy.

Mama’s Craft Weekend::
This past weekend I spent 48 hours in the snowy mountains in a condo with 5 other mama’s. Most I’ve known since I was in Jr. High. We love each other and we love the Lord and together that makes for a weekend that fills your heart with love, laughter and tons of food {plus we made 15+ mug rugs?!?}. I managed to finish a quilt top and make progress on my seester’s wedding quilt.

Daisy girl::
How could I resist throwing this picture into the mix. This is her new sleeping place when I’m upstairs sewing {my son’s room across the hall}.

Are you sick of them?
I hope not … first, it’s a great way for small business to get the word out {grass roots advertising if you will} and second, you could win something for leaving a comment {or helping a great cause}. Hello? Win-win.

I have two going on today …
Life Re-Arranged – Jeanette is hosting a giveaway for a “Happy Little List Taker & Coffee Coat”

Take Heart – Danielle is hosting a crazy wonderful 25th {ahhh, to be young again} birthday celebration giveaway with 25 items all going to ONE winner. The catch? It’s wonderful. To enter to win, you need to make a donation to the Joyful Life Library.
