I made a new little kit! It's free, but available exclusively to Gotta Pixel's Pixel Club members! Head on over to the Subscriber's forum to find the download link!

I asked my dear creative team members if they would be willing to make design some pages to share with the subscribers too, and they jumped into action! CindyB made this beautiful quickpage and Laura/terebinthtree created this pretty little brag book page! Links are also in the subscriber's forum!

I finally took some photos of my recent fabric goodies! My camera must have been on the wrong setting, so everything is a bit blurry, but you can still see the pretty colors!

I picked up all these fabrics from a local quilt shop that is closing. I'm sad I won't be able to visit it anymore, but was sure to pick up a lot of beauties at a great price! Most will end up in my little guy's quilt, which I will hopefully get sewn before he turns 2. :)


I won this beautiful set of fabric from Holly Holderman's blog (she's the designer of the Lakehouse Dry Goods fabric lines). She asked me to describe a few of my favorite things about fabric and pulled together this wonderful assortment!


I also won this lovely charming jelly cake of April Cornell's Nature's Chorus line from the Fat Quarter Shop's blog! I still haven't figured out just what I will make from it yet, but I can't wait to dive in!

And last but not least, I have to share some pictures of my little guy on his 1st birthday! You also are getting a sneak peek of the hybrid projects I mentioned! A fun little crown and a cupcake wrapper! I'm still working on the templates a bit, but I was so happy with the way they turned out! Just the perfect way to add color without having to add any dye to my little allergic guy. The cupcake is his and the little cake was for the rest of us.

Here's the happy little birthday boy!

And here he is again enjoying his special cupcake! I used a recipe from spewdfree.com and he absolutely LOVED it!

Thanks for sticking with me through this long post! Thank you also for all your votes over at Spoonflower! I didn't win but it was such a thrill to get so many votes! I'll definately be ordering some of my fabric one day soon. :)

I've got some really exciting news! See the design I have right on either side of my blog...the floral design...it's a pattern I designed for my A Few of My Favorite Things kit and I put it up at Spoonflower hoping to order it as a fabric one day when I decided just what project to sew with it. Well now it's up in the running for the fabric of the week contest on the Spoonflower blog!

Competition is stiff, and I'm not winning so far, but I would really love to end up at the top of the vote!

Will you hop on over to the voting site and pick my "Favorite Things Floral Leaf"? I'd really appreciate it!


To celebrate I've put all A Few of My Favorite Things products on a special 50% off sale at Gotta Pixel and Digitals! Sale runs through the end of the day, Sunday, March 22nd, and that's when the Spoonflower voting ends too.

How did it get to be March 6th?! It's an extra special day, my little guy's 1st birthday! He and I are still working on getting better, so we're holding off the big celebration for another week or so.

I finally got around to making a desktop calendar to share with you all, sorry it's late, but maybe you are like me and just running a bit late. I hope you enjoy it! It is made with my Leaves of Green Paper Pack that is at Gotta Pixel right now and gives you a sneak peek at the coordinating element pack I hope to release in a few days. (I'll have it up at Digitals sometime soon too.)


I've been hearing of some recent issues with the popular 4sharded, so I decided to just host the calendar myself. Please leave me a comment below if you pick it up! (No logging in required.) Download directly here.

I'm going to sneak in a few minutes of work on the Leaves of Green Element Pack and some fun hybrid projects (templates + printables) I have in mind for my little guy's birthday celebration!

I had the honor of coordinating all the challenge prizes at Digitals this month! I really love how the whole thing turned out! By completing each Digitals challenge you'll be able to pick up pieces.

I made prizes for 3 of the challenges!




I've planned out lots of fun stuff when I was sick, now I just need to make it! A desktop calendar will show up here soon and so will lots of other goodies! :)
