a peek at the week...

YIP2010 - 293

I'm terrible about secrets, but I have to say there have been, and there will continue to be, lots of fun going on behind the scenes around here! And more plans and ideas keep coming...I'm so excited!

But this is really about this week. So here are some things to look forward to:

-More giveaways...you'll love them!
-The second half of the soft Caregiver Kit project.
-My last minute costume plans...I hope they come together!

And...New stuff for the shop! Coming tonight, around 9pm, I'll be adding two new items:


A mini pattern that let's you vote on what really matters...

Animal Crackers

and Animal Crackers! They are an embroidery pattern, but come with instructions for making them into the little soft toys shown (plus how to make a little box to keep them in!)

And how about a glimpse at a project that has been happening behind the scenes for a few weeks now...

in the works...

Tara of Sew Tara approached me with an idea that we could make together. It involved my patterns and her sewing, and lots of fun to be had with you and your kids! Working with Tara has been a delightful experience, and I can't wait to share this collaboration with you...next Monday! For now, I don't want to give away too much, but I will say, you are sure to make a memory with this!

Now, enjoy your Monday, dear friends!
