Perfect Day for a Giveaway!

That's right! My first giveaway!

I'm ready to meet some people and make some new friends!

I was going to wait until Monday but today is so beautiful and has just been a wonderful day all together so I just had to bite the bullet and do it!

The giveaway is for this beautiful Pink and Green Flower and Butterfly Rag Quilt Wristlet. Great for cell phones, cameras, lip gloss - whatever you'd need for a night out with the girls!

I guess this is where I tell you what you have to do.

Leave me a comment! Tell me what makes you the happiest in your life right now! Doesn't matter how small or how big, just let 'er go!

Want another entry? Go to my Etsy shop (click!) and tell me what your favorite item is that I have listed.

Easy Peazy!

If you don't have a blog, make sure you leave an e-mail address so I can contact you!

Giveaway will last 2 weeks and will end Saturday, June 13th at midnight. Winner will be picked through and be posted Monday, June 15th!

Glasgow! Bring Me A Fabric Store!

Here are a few of the things I've been busy making recently:

To see the other items, just check out my Etsy shop.

Lilly had an appointment at the beauty shop on Wednesday. I think she knows she looks good...

She's the sweetest little thing, EVER! I love her so much and she inspires me so much.

I've been in a poo mood since around 3 this afternoon when I decided I wanted to make a quilt with some fabrics I've had forever. Problem? No black flannel. Sure, if I lived in the big 'ole town of Bowling Green or wherever else, I could have just hopped in my car and went and got some. Thing is, there are 2 fabric shops here and neither of them carry flannel, one store supposedly had light pink flannel but it was almost $5 a yard, that's nuts. She tried convincing me that I could just use felt?! I didn't need felt!!! I think I know what I need to make what I want to make. Right?

I was disappointed for 2.5 seconds until I received an e-mail from Hancock Fabrics about their huge sale they're having tomorrow. So now, we're getting up bright and early to make it there so that the one main thing I want isn't gone, is it flannel? No. I now realize I have an attention span the size of a 2 year old. Will I get the previously mentioned black flannel though? Duh!

Me having an attention span the size of a 2 year old becomes a problem when I constantly start projects and don't finish them. Stopping a project results in a new project which then results in an excuse for me to buy new fabric - yum! feeding my fabric addiction. My dear boyfriend doesn't say yum!, he says yuck! while my fabric addiction is depleting his wallet of mucho $.

The time will come either tomorrow during the day or first thing Monday morning, I'm still debating on the perfect item to giveaway! :)

New Items Coming and a Give-A-Way! What?!

That's right! I'm working on several items with new gorgeous fabrics and after I get it all made up, I'm doing my first give-a-way! I've been working pretty hard the past few days and still have more to do. It won't be long though! So, if you come across this, you just might want to follow and stick around because it will definitely be worth while.

In the mean time, tomorrow I'm taking a break because... it's my 21st birthday! I'm so excited and can't wait to spend it with my loved ones!

I'd leave with a picture as usual but I reformatted my laptop and don't have any pictures on here :(!

Shop Is Back Open!

I opened the Etsy shop back up this morning. I already have several orders. I'm still at my mom's house, I was going to go home today but the weather is supposed to be bad. I went home and got a few supplies and my machine and brought it back here, then realized I forgot one of my important tools - my rotary cutter!

We're going to Hancock Fabrics in the morning to get some blades and a trolley for my machine! I also have to get some new jeans, I ripped a pair of mine a couple weeks ago :(!

Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful mothers out there! :)

Shop Closed Until Further Notice

Etsy shop has been closed since April 30th 12AM (Thursday) after my free shipping promotion ended. I have been down here at my mom's in Scottsville, KY, helping her out with my grandmother. She had a pace maker put in on Friday and came home on Sunday. We're not sure if she's having complications or not but she has been incredibly dizzy and nauseous since her surgery. They tried to get her to stay at the hospital on Sunday but she just wasn't having it (she's very hard headed) so she ended up coming home. I wish she'd start feeling better so she can recoup herself from her surgery and get used to her pacemaker.

Shop will re-open as soon as everything is better with her and I can make it home. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! :)
