Spring Cleaning SALE and a GIVEAWAY

April 14 update~ Sale has ended, you can still enter a comment though for the giveaway. I'll be choosing a winner later today or tomorrow. Thanks everyone!

Time for a sale, time to clean off the shelves and make room for the great new collections due to come out at Spring Quilt Market! Time to stock up for your Mothers Day and summer sewing projects!

Everything in my shop is 20% off.
Fabric, patterns, kits, even sale and clearance items!
Since it would take me a gazillion years to go in and mark down every item, this can work 2 ways:

1. Go ahead and check out and you will be refunded for your discount and any shipping overages when I print out your shipping label.

2. Send me a convo (Etsy email) at my shop with what you would like to purchase and I will set up a listing for you with the correct prices.

Sale ends on April 13th at midnight.

Now for the GIVEAWAY part of this post :)

yesterday and Today

yesterday ~ I thought about how I should start exercising and knock off eating all the Easter left overs...
Today ~ I walked two miles, did arm exercises, and 42 jumping jacks.

yesterday ~ I ate three servings of Special K for breakfast and two sugar cookies for lunch...
Today ~ I had one serving, yes even measured it to see what the heck one serving looked like and took the time to slice some fresh strawberries on top.

yesterday ~ I felt sluggish and tired and was in the "less I do the more tired I am" rut...
Today ~ I am filled with energy.

yesterday ~ I was too busy feeling tired to pray.
Today ~ I prayed the Rosary as I walked and am filled with hope.

yesterday ~ I got out my shorts and my favorite pair doesn't. quite. fit.
Today ~ I'm telling you that they will fit by Memorial Day. So that you can remind me. And demand a photo of me in. those. shorts. on Memorial Day. Demand it I tell you!

Are you in a rut? Get up, get out, get moving with me!! It feels great!

Happy Easter!!

Hi all!
Absence makes the heart grow fonder right?? It's been a while, I know...
I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Blessed Easter! Ours was beautiful the whole way around, from the Vigil Mass, to the egg and basket hunt, to the weather, warm and sunny. Hope yours was too!

I promise... no more pictures of snow from me... at least not any time soon ;) It's all gone, the flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and the flip flops are back on! I've been busy spring cleaning and will be announcing a sale in my shop soon... give me a day or so. I owe you patient friends a giveaway too and have it all ready, just need to snap a photo. It's a good one, perfect for spring :)
Be back soon. Promise.
