Missed Email

I feel bad. Last night I was emailing Ruby because I won this giveaway. And while I was trying to clean out my email, I found an email that I had missed. It was in my spam box. An email for my giveaway. But what do I do? I didn't find it until last night. So I figured, for the next giveaway I have, I'll add her in. Because, well, what else can I do?

Granny Square Love

It's definitely been a lazy Sunday around here! My hubby and I are just enjoying the warm weather. He's working on a project right now. And I'm sitting out on our back patio. I was searching through some of my favorite craft blogs. And I found this picture at Cakies.

It reminds me of something my hubby's grandma would have made. In fact, Lola has this HUGE granny square blanket that their grandma made her. She loves it to pieces and cherishes it. It's one large granny square made with a variety of colors.

I really like this blanket. I want to start making one like it. I'm going to use this picture as an inspiration. I'm not sure how big or small it will be. But this one is a crib sized blanket, for a baby. I'm not sure, but I'm probably not going to make the same squares. Because I don't know how to make these squares. But I'm going to make a regular granny square. I can't wait!

Gum Ball Necklace

About a month ago, I seen this necklace at Happy Together. It was for a giveaway. And I entered, praying that I'd win. It didn't happen. And I was a little sad. But now that I'm on summer break, I really want to make this. I'm not sure where to start. I'm hoping that Lola can help me with some ideas. She's good at figuring out these things. I really want to make this necklace for summer. I think it would look nice with a white summer dress and some cute cowboy boots!

Giveaway Day 2010

Welcome everyone from Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! I'm so excited to participating this time around. I've missed the deadline twice already! And I nearly did it again this time.

On to the good stuff. If you are like me, I've spent the last 6 months or so making baby gifts. I would say at least 70% the people my hubby and I know, are either expecting a baby or getting married. No lie! I've been super busy making lots of baby blankets, booties, and the such. :)

So for my giveaway, I'm offering a few extra baby items that I made. You just never know when you're going to be invited to a baby shower! In my giveaway, you have the chance to win 3 handmade burp clothes made out of cotton and flannel material. One side has baby bears, and the other is color blocked with pastel colors. There is also a baby bonnet and bootie set, crochet in Baby Bernat yarn. The color is called Cherry Berry, it's a variegated pink and white color.

If you would like the chance to win, just leave me a comment. Preferably with your blog link or a link to your favorite blog. You have until 10pm MST, May 23. I'll choose a winner using to pick the winner. Good luck everyone! Oh, and my giveaway is open to US residents only.

Happy Birthday Tia!

I want to wish our Tia a very Happy Birthday! She is such an amazing part of our life. So encouraging. Honestly, I don't know what we'd do without her. She is honestly like a 2nd mom to my hubby and I. And we both hope that she has an amazing day!

Tia may all your dreams come true, God keep you healthy, and you receive all the happiness in the world! Happy Birthday!

Lack of Gabi...

I LOVE blogging! I can't believe it's almost been a year since I started. Because this has been such a fun ride. But lately, I've had issues with my blog. Actually since September. After talking with a friend of mine, that's a computer genius, I finally know how to fix my blog. But it's going to take time to sit down and do it. And how many people are really that interested in reading about what I dressed up as for Halloween? I'm not thinking many.

And with school, I don't have much spare time. The little that I get, I like to spend it with my hubby. And with this crazy weather that we've been having lately, we're trying to balance about 50 DIY projects. I'm not lying! But we're trying.

So please bare with me. I'll be back to my blog soon. I'll be posting more than just a link to a pattern. And I'll hopefully fix all the missing posts. That's really frustrating. Because I have a ton of blog posts that I don't think anyone has ever read. So sad! But soon friends, the semester will be over. And I'll be on summer break from all my grad student stuff. I promise!
