Happier Fabric - and a Giveaway

Check out this happy pile, which is appropriately named Happier. It's Deena Rutter's newest collection for Riley Blake.  Cute prints and colors - I've been cutting into it today.
In other fun news, Anna at Crafty Girls Workshop and I are teaming up with a giveaway of a Chrysalis charm pack and one of my Chain Linked patterns - a perfect pattern to use with charm packs.


In other happy news - I'm pleased to report the April Fool's trick was a hit. We got a lot of mileage out of those cups of Jello. The best was when my six-year-old offered his dad a drink when he got home from work and then 'tripped'. My husband totally jumped when he thought he was going to be covered with red punch. Good times. I highly recommend it for next year.

  3. This is awesome. A kid in my son's 5th grade class brings orange koolaid in a water bottle every day. My boy made up a jello water bottle and switched them... it was a good prank! He came up with the idea on his own, too, weeks ahead of time. :)

  4. LOL I'll have to remember that one for next year! My boys had the day off from school, due to a teacher in-service (is that brilliant or what?), so I was the recipient of a few too many pranks, but we had fun!

  5. Hah! Love the kool-aid/jell-o deal! And seriously - seeing those cute little birdies on that Happier line made me smile real big. :)

  6. The birds and polka dots make me smile. A little kool aid never hurt anyone and in 30 years you will still be laughing. Great memories and so much fun.
