Giveaway and quick catch up!

Well, still no crafts. There's simply not enough hours in the day lately! Partly because I've been trying really hard to be a bit more healthy and organized. I'll have to take some pictures of the organizing I've done to show you. I've got more shoe organizers in the mud room (we may or may not have too many shoes!), plus we've been putting everything in baskets and bins. My kids seriously have to run from me to make sure they don't get put in one! (I kid...sort of...they'd think it was fun!) Plus today will be my 5th day in a row exercising! Who knew I could do that? Honestly. I don't think I did. It's really exciting.

And now, if you're here about the giveaway, you should totally check out Today's Giveaway. They have tons of fantastic giveaways all the time and one that's going on today is for wall vinyl! There's some way cute stuff, so check it out!

Vintage Pearl Giveaway

Nope, I'm not cool enough to do a real giveaway yet. (And Jen, I promise I still remember your apron, I'm trying to find the perfect fabric for the other side and having issues! Aargh!) Anyway, head on over to Blue Cricket Design and check out the fantastic giveaway over there. A $50 gift card to The Vintage Pearl! I've seriously been wanting a necklace with my kids names on it, and especially one that I can add to. So I think if I win, I'm totally going for the Square Names on a Chain. It's so gorgeous! Head on over and check it out!

I'm baaaack!

Sort of. Is it okay that I'm coming back with bad feelings toward my creative side right now? I had a bit of a "craftastrophe" over the break. I tried making a quillow. Epic Fail! It's bad. I put it into the pillow pocket...sort of. It doesn't quite fit. But I have not allowed it out of there, even to show the Hubby the epic failure. That bad. Yup. Oh well. The kids have enjoyed their aprons and the crayon rolls I made them for Christmas. Bubs has her new table set up in her room with her dollhouse on it. I also made a rice hot/cold bag for Hubby for Christmas. He hasn't used it yet...he doesn't like to admit he might need it! Oh well. Over all, it was a fairly successful holiday. (I'm not going to say that Christmas was a success...that was a horrible day! Yikes!) Hopefully everyone enjoyed their holidays as well! Let me know if you think I should post a picture of my craftastrophe and/or give me ideas for what to do with it, cuz it's cute fabric, and it's being wasted at the moment!
