Happy Birthday to me!

Today I turn 46, yikes that's pretty close to 50. I don't feel old, I guess that's all that counts. It's funny the older you get get, the age you think is old gets pushed back. Amy and I had plans to go to Target, story-time and speech today but last night when we laid down in bed she started throwing up and proceeded to do that a few more times through out the night. Sadly to say she is still not feeling good.

Tomorrow morning I will draw names for my birthday giveaway! You still have time to enter!

Happy Spring!

The first day of spring and here in Kansas City we have snow. It was pretty nice yesterday and than by late afternoon the wind was blowing and the temperature had dropped, rain, sleet and snow. Amy is excited to make snow angels, so I'll be bundling her up to go lay in the snow.

If you haven't signed up for my giveaway, you still have time. I'll be drawing names on the 25th.

Last week a great group of mamas from KCAP (a local parenting forum) got together for the play food swap. We had a fun time and the kids enjoyed running through the church gym. Here is a picture of the food I went home with, there were three separate swaps and I was in two.

I've been busy working on prim bunnies and bunny heads.

I've been itching to hit a few thrift stores but my wallet tells me otherwise. I think I'll dig around in my basement to see what kinda junk I have to re-do. Reading all the prim blogs and seeing all the cool makeovers makes me want to get create.

My birthday is the 24th and I'm having a giveaway actually I'm giving away 4 separate items. I'll draw names on the 25th.

1. This quilt top I bought at a garage sale years ago and have never done anything with, it has a small hole.

2. 1 yard of this homespun

3. Spring pattern

4. A spring frame pic-- yet to be made.

The rules --- become a follower and leave a comment-- that's it. I just added my follower gadget and noticed I had 5 followers!!

Trashy Swap

Kim from The Prim Schoolmarm was my swap partner in the Trashy Swap hosted by Char. I was so excited to get my package in the mail, Kim and I have emailed and back and forth and I read through her blog and she has all sorts of cute prim stuff she has made.

I love these wooden bowls and how she primed them up.

This candle mat was my favorite item. As soon as I rearrange my antique sewing table, I'm going to place it on there. My 3.5 year usually runs off with anything setting within her reach, so I find my stuff all over the house.

The Blessings stitchery will look great with my Give Thanks frame. I like the material she used for the background, it reminds me of a sweater. I would have never thought to use that for a background.

She also sent these three cute prim pillows along with the wooden tray. Everything looks great and it was exciting to open the box.

Char's swaps have pushed me to work with all sorts of items I might have bypassed because I wasn't use to working with them. I really want to make some of the wooden project tutorials she has on her blog. If you get a chance check out Kim and Char's blog.

I need to retake a couple pictures for the giveaway I mentioned the other day, hopefully I'll get the pictures tomorrow morning.

What I've been working on

I made a prim bunny faux stitchery for my trashy swap partner and than made this one for myself. My swap partner's looks better, the piece of material I used should have been longer, I didn't have very much to pull tight and tape down so it's looks a little loose.

I have chicken drumsticks and gingerbread cookie dough that I'm also working on for a local playfood swap. I'm about halfway done and need to get cracking since we're swapping next week. I never was able to get a picture of all the wonderful playfood we received in the December swap. Amy has had a lot of fun playing with the wide assortment and everything turned out great.

I posted about this rag quilt I made on A Year of Christmas, read more here .

Melissa was in a Lego League competition last week and her group came in first place for presentation. They spend at least 2-3 days after school a week working on their project. She has really enjoyed it this school year.

Today I received my trashy swap and will get pictures and post soon. Kimberly sent me a wonderful swap box, I was so excited when I opened it.
This month in celebration of my upcoming birthday I'm going to have a couple giveaways. I just need to get some pictures taken and post the information soon. Thanks for stopping by and reading!
