Blog hop and a giveaway.

Are you more of a black friday shopper 
or a cyber monday gal?...

This was my first year venturing out to walmart to grab some gifts. Let me tell you it was crazy! I got a lot of great stuff even though I had to wad through crowds of people. The girls really wanted a fur real friend and zuzu pets. My kiddos love animals and because I won't be buying anything real for quite some time, I thought I would treat them this christmas to a few faux pets.

I am planning to shop for some deals on monday too! So to answer the question I am both a black friday shopper and a cyber monday gal!

I really want to win that floor cleaner, that would make for a very merry christmas!
I am participating in Infarrantly Creative and Tatertots and Jello’s Blog Hop for a chance to win a Mint Cleaner. It is the revolutionary machine that cleans your hard floor surfaces for you.

Upcycled Denim Quilt

I finished it!!!!
It only took 7 years and one day to do it, but I did it. I told my good friend that if she would cut the squares I would sew them together. Well she cut them and put them together and gave them to me and I put the box in the garage. It was lost in the abyss for a long time. I always thought about that quilt but always found another project to do. Truthfully I didn't have a sewing machine until last year but that is no excuse.
 I can't tell you how excited I am to finally be finished. It fells like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I know that my sweet friend will be so happy that she is finally getting her quilt and in all those years she never said any thing to me about finishing it.
Here it is Tif I hope you like it.

Hi friends, this quilt is so easy to make it just takes a little time. It is made out of old jeans and a full sheet. It is perfectly imperfect, the squares don't match up I think it really adds to the charm. If anyone would like me to post the instructions just let me know.


This is my favorite part of the quilt. There are back pocket patches that are great for holding you stuff when you are at the beach or park. 
I am posting at a bunch of great parties check them out in the side bar.

Saying Goodbye...

Today we said goodbye to a few of our favorite friends...

(Don't you just love the look on the big ones face, priceless!)

It was hard to decide which of our friends would be leaving us, a few tears were shed, but we managed to chose a few. We are getting ready for for the new toys we will be getting for Christmas. I always have a hard time parting with stuff so I am trying to teach my kiddos to not become emotionally attached to things. On the up side all of the "babies" fit in to their bin now, and when I say bin I mean three foot high basket.
We can't wait to see what Santa is bringing this year!!!

but probably not! A girl can dream can't she.
