our weekend and a sytyc loss

with the sickies of the flu still prevalent in our home...we've had a pretty low key weekend. but so far we've had 12 hours of no one up chucking. i actually slept good last night. i'm crossing my fingers, knocking on wood, and holding my breath that we're done.
here's to being optimistic.
well, this last week the votes at sytyc were not in my favor. BUT i still feel like a winner because i've made some pretty great friends, and it's an honor to lose to two wonderfully creative women!
best of luck to dana and ashley!!
i can't wait to see what your final project will be!!!
make sure to check out ashley's tutorial for her resolution subway art style tomorrow on sytyc!

and make sure you come back tomorrow for my sponsored giveaway!

v and co loves her sponsors go check out green fairy quilts!

I am sad that you are out of SYTYC. I have really enjoyed seeing your creations! Oh and I love your blog... you are so inspiring!

FL Nixons said...

I just found this website and the SYTYC site so forgive me if this answer is obvious...do you have a tutorial for the notebook cover? I've been looking for that very same thing for the composition book!

that picture of your little one is precious even sick...but i have to ask about the blanket she is covered with. it looks like fleece! i'd love to know more about it!

I think the sytyc results were a crock. You always had, by far, the cutest most creative ideas. Maybe I'm just partial to your style because I follow your blog, but still.... it's their loss :)
