Purses Galore!

Sew Sweetness
I really wanted to post this at the end of May, but time got away from me. We're only 3 days behind on this blog hop, so we have time to catch up!
Sara at Sew Sweetness has put together a fun event to get you sewing a purse for the summer. Even if you don't want to make one right now, there are going to be TONS of great purses to drool over!
So head here and join me in the purse event of the year!!!

Leibster Award!

Leibster Award !

I am so incredibly honored to be chosen to receive a Liebster Award!

If you have not heard of it,  Liebster is German for ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’-- but it can also mean ‘favorite.’ The Liebster award was created to give some attention to blogs with less than 200 followers (that's definitely me!).

The Sisters at Those Crafty Sisters are the kind bloggers who made this possible by nominating me for this award.  You should check out their blog--it's full of tips, projects, gift ideas, tutorials, and much more! There are Father's Day ideas featured right now, and a link to a Bloggy Birthday party!
In accepting the award, you are supposed to follow these rules:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogshare--other bloggers.
5. Finally and the best rule of all………have fun and spread the love!

So here are my choices to receive the award.  You should definitely check out their blogs!

 We'll get past that 200 mark one day, lol!!
And at least in my case, as the followers come pouring in, the blog posts become more regular and inspiring! Now go leave some bloggy love!!!

I'm No Longer Topless!!

That is, I made my first ever quilt top!!

Jenna at Sew.Happy.Geek sponsored a Quilt Along (QAL) on her blog. It is finished, but can be seen here. Check out her blog - you won't be sorry, and there may be some awesome projects coming up!
Everyone who finished their quilt top was entered into a drawing for some quilty goodness. I won this! Thank you Jenna and Fresh Squeezed Fabrics!! Now I have to figure out how to turn this into an actual quilt.
My next project? Bring it on Amy Gibson!!

Red Barn Scrapbook Review & Giveaway

My friend Kim Keber has to be the most creative person I know. I met her through scrapbooking years ago, and she continues to inspire me today! Check out her blog to be inspired yourself. Then go to Trendy Treehouse for a chance to win one of Kim's camera straps.
Good luck!!

I'm Going to Win!

Thought I'd try a different title since I DIDN'T win the Silhouette contest. However, I'm going to share this layout again to win a Cricut! Follow this link for a chance to win, too! (Since they're giving away more than one I thought I'd be generous and share the chance!) Good luck!!

Well, that's what I hope to say in a few days! I created this page

for a sketch challenge at the Silhouette blog. I used my Silhouette SD to cut the number 6 from the font Segoe Script, 6 stars from the Silhouette library, and the yellow tag hanging from the twine is from the library. The paper is all Close to my Heart, and the twine is from We R Memory Keepers. Overall I'm pretty proud of it! Do I have to share that the tag is covering a "K" that my six-year-old wrote? He wanted to write his name on the layout. Do we have a future scrapbooker?
