I have been MIA for awhile and I really do have a reason. Every spare minute I have had has been used getting a quilt ready for this little one…
I am now done with the quilt top and can focus on other projects and getting ready for the arrival of our little boy in June! Once he arrives, I will post a picture of the finished quilt (after being quilted and bound) and our little bundle modeling it! I LOVE how the quilt top turned out and had to share! I found this pattern at a Quilt Shop Hop a few years back and fell in love! When I found out I was pregnant, I knew that if it was a boy I had to do this quilt. It was intimidating at first but not too bad once I finally got started. It was worth every second of work I put into it. If you would like the pattern or to see what other fun quilts the designer has done, it is done by Chitter Chatter Designs. And now for my bragging moment….my super cute quilt top!!!!!!

Jenni posted a few days ago Osh Kosh is collecting origami cranes and will match each one made with an article of clothing for Japan kids. Their goal is 50000. I got mine made and want to challenge everyone to make a few. The info was posted by Jenni on Mar 30th. Go to that post for more info.
While you are on their website check out all the pictures others have sent in on the cranes they have made. It is very inspiring.
I’ve been spending the cold wintery spring days playing with my Silhouette. It is so much fun. These are a couple of the things I’ve done. Others are still in process and I will show them later.
My downstairs family room is decorated in a woodsy look so my hubby’s deer fits along with my collection of bears. When I saw these pine trees I knew I had to come up with somewhere to use them. I love them.
This on is headed for AZ but I think I may remake one similar for my entry where it will be at home.

I'm sure most of you have heard about CSN stores. They are all over blogland right now and it's easy to see why. They have a great selection of anything you can think of.
Right now, I'm working on replacing a bunch of the lighting for my house, I want new fixtures for my dining and kitchen really bad and they have lots of great choices, the problem is narrowing it down to only one. I'm also making a list of new cookware to replace all the hand me downs we've been using since we got married 8 years ago (I told you, I'm NOT the chef of the family). They really have something for everyone.
CSN Stores is offering a $20 off code to one of our readers to be used towards any purchase! If you'd like to win, simply make sure you're a follower and comment on this post. We'll pick a random winner on Monday Apr 4th, and send you your code!
