It Snowed!!!

I know I am a week late posting this, but life has a way of changing my plans.  I had planned to talk about our "SnowJam 2010" earlier in the week it just didn't work out that way though.  It was my kind of snow-lasted all of about 24 hours.  By 12:00 on Saturday the roads were clear and dry.  The snow was beautiful to look at and the kids had a great time playing in it all weekend.  Now that we have had our snowstorm for the winter we can bring on Spring.   I for one am more than ready.

What do you do when you are "snowed" in for the day?  Well we spent our day catching up on monogramming orders.  By Saturday night we had monogrammed 51 purses, 1 market tote, 1 lunch bag, and 4 pillowcases.  Mission accomplished.

DIY Dish

I am so excited that Kim and Kris are bringing their creativity to video.  I can't wait for their new site to kick off!  Their other two sites and  are two of my favorite sites.  I love all of the ideas and patterns that are on both sites. As a visual learner I am more than exicited that they will be "showing" us how to actually do the techniques instead of reading how and hoping it turms out right. 

Not only that but they are giving away two brand spanking new machines to celebrate the launch of their new site and thanks to their friends at Janome. The two machines are the Janome 350e EMBROIDERY machine and the Janome DC4030 SEWING machine. That's two machines for two winners.  There are several ways to win so go check out the new site and find out the "dish" on how to win.   

Can't wait for Spring and the first video!  Now go check it out at
