My name was drawn...

And this lovely came in the mail for me today! It is a vision journal. African Kelli had a giveaway on her blog where she made and gave away 10 of these and I was one of the lucky ones whose name was drawn.It came with a very sweet and encouraging note too. The folks in blogland are very kind people! I am so happy to get a chance to 'meet' them.
Thanks Kelli! I love it and I can't wait to use it!

Etsy Shop!

I finally figured out how to put a link to my Etsy shop on my blog! I've had an Etsy shop since the end of June, but I haven't done much with it. Now if I could just start filling it up with stuff. I may have to start making time to do that!

New blog finds~

I guess I am taking a hiatus from crafting while I am trying to get my new school and work schedule balanced out. Add in seasonal allergies (I get spring and fall allergies...wahhh) and this week wasn't very productive. I am knitting a new scarf that I will hopefully have pictures of soon to show that I haven't been totally lazy!

In the meantime, check out these blogs I added to my blog list!

I've been visiting Christy's blog Made for Adventure for a while now and just got around to updating my blog list and now you can view her blog from there. She not only sews, she weaves! Something I have wanted to learn to do for awhile now. She does beautiful work.

And here is one I just found and am really excited about! Check out One Pretty Thing. It's a really cool blog with lots of tutorials and ideas. There is pretty much something for everyone there depending on what you like. There are some baking ideas, party ideas, home decor ideas, sewing, knitting, crocheting...I haven't even finished looking at all the ideas for August yet and I spent about an hour on there this morning.

They links are all in my blog list where there are a lot of other inspiring blogs to look at.

Have a nice weekend!

A Lovely Labor Day~

I hope everyone had as beautiful a day as I did. It started off with an outdoor breakfast with friends and my sister, and ended with a potluck at another family's house. I realize that I am blessed with good friends. God is so good to us.
Here is my attempt at a dress form. My friend helped me make it this morning after our breakfast get-together while my sister sat on the couch and laughed at us and photographed it. I won't post the pictures of me on here because I look awful. This is the semi-finished product though. We ran out of the turquoise duct tape. I think I may try to cover it with fabric since I've got a ton that I need to use up. I am so excited about this. I hope it will make it easier to sew things. I just need to stuff it and figure out how to mount it.

I hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day!
