Free Pattern Giveaway!!

Today is the last day of school for us, and the beginning of summer vacation starting this afternoon!! I wait all year for summer, and am looking forward to a fun one! With that, I thought it would be a nice day to do a Free Pattern Giveaway in celebration of the start of summer vacation. :-)

To enter the drawing, post me a note letting me know what your fun plans are for this summer. I'd love to hear about it! This evening I will draw a name and the winner will be able to choose a free pattern of their choice from my shops.

I've been adding quite a few new patterns lately, so stop by and take a look. I've also added a few new patterns to my "free patterns" page, and plan on adding more in the coming weeks, so take a browse at those too. :-)

Looking forward to seeing your posts/entries! Good luck!

Summer Plans

Well, we already started our summer vacation from school a few weeks ago. We went on a HUGE family vacation to San Antonio, TX for a week. I think there was 17 of us staying in one house :) I am a SAHM mama, so my kiddos and I will be doing lots of swimming in the pool, and I want to take my girls (ages 4 and 5) to the movies at the end of this month to see Monsters University. I also hope to get some camping trips in on the weekends, when my husband is off work :)

Camping with Grandma!

We plan to take my little ones camping with my mother. We also use this time to go to craft tent sales and the bernat yarn outlet!

I'm so excited for the

I'm so excited for the summer! I don't have kids but I still act like one! :) planning on swimming at least once a week and even though I went to Disneyland last year I'd like to try and go again this year!! Me and my husband are going to Yellowstone for the first time next month and definitely plan on camping every other weekend!!


We don't have any set plans for summer, but it should be a fun one. We just bought our oldest daughter one of those cheap plastic pools for outside (our younger one is only a month old, so she can't play in it yet). So we'll be spending a lot of time outside. Probably go to the zoo, go for walks on the greenbelt, have bbqs, etc. It'll definitely be a fun summer. :)
