Cinnamon rolls, yum!

Congratulations to Andrea and Beverly! And for lagniappe, Sherry. Thank you for stopping by and participating in my Easter giveaway. I'll get in touch with y'all for your addresses. Sorry I'm a little late posting, yesterday my computer gave me trouble uploading some pics and froze for awhile and last night I wasn't home.

Hate to blog without photos so here are a few from my brothers surprise party Saturday night. The color theme was cobalt and lime.

Karen did the shirt invite.

Melanie did the cake.

I made some shirt collars to wrap around the vases.

A birthday banner by Karen.

He was soooo surprised!

Of course we had tons of good food and desserts and I totally blew my WW diet. Oh well, try harder this week.

Y'all have a wonderful week!

Easter Giveaway

I love Spring! To honor the gorgeous weather and Easter I'd like to have a little giveaway to my readers. I made some lavender or rosemary sachets for my littlest "peeps" and have a couple extra. Please comment on this post with your email and I'll choose two winners next Monday to send them some extra springtime love.

Linking with We did it! Wednesday at and Pink Saturday at

Lots of luck!

(Not a great pic but I wanted to get this post up today.)

We Did It! Wednesday/Pink Saturday

My first time linking to this blog. I always have so much fun checking out more places to visit and Melanie has offered another way for us to link together. Plus, she encourages us to finish something-anything!!

I replaced my blog header with my pink project. I simply cut out some applique's of  checked bunny peeps, embroidered some eyes and nose, and zig-zagged each one onto the towel. Then I added a straight strip of pieced fabrics to the bottom. Will do some more for Easter gifts asap. I also made some sachets but didn't finish those yet. Y'all have fun browsing around over there.

 I'm also linking to Beverly's Pink Saturday. I haven't done this in a while again. When the weather turns gorgeous the weekends seem to be filled with so many things to do and places to go.

Next week I hope to have a little giveaway so check back when y'all can!! Happy pink week!
