Websites of Companies

Are you using coupons? Well I am. It has saved me a ton of money. I especially like Hot Coupon World and Jan4girls, she has a limit of $800 for 1 whole year. Yes that's one whole year, including take out. You should check out her site. I know we could never get down to $800 a year. But we sure try to get get as low as possible. I'm also part of a yahoo group called HowToShopForFree. I receive daily digest of this group, because if I choose individual email, I would never be able to leave my hotmail account. Anyway, one of the coupon savy people sent in this list of companies. They had emailed approximately 70 of these companies and received around 50 responses back with coupons. One day here this week I will be able to email a few to see what response I receive.

Here is the quilt I've been working on for my new nephew. He's hasn't been born yet. Due date is March 7th. I purchased a set of burp clothes at Target when they were on clearance. I paid $1.74 for a set of four. I think it only cost around $20 for all the materials. This is one of the many quilts my family will be receiving for Christmas this year. I just have to finish the binding and I'll be done. So, 1 down and 9 more to go.

I have purchased the colors for another quilt. Greens. I absolutely love green. It reminds me of walking through woods or through fields. Here are the fabrics.

I'm not sure who to give this one to though. I guess I'll make it first and decide at a later date.

Apron Swap

Okay I just found this blog. She is doing a Feista! Hot Mama Apron Swap.
I just signed up for this swap also. I think I will only sign up for a couple and see how I do with them. I have the perfect apron in mind for this swap, so I should be busy this week.
I do have a few other projects I have to finish up and start this week. So busy, busy, busy. Just the way I like to be.

Kitchen Colors

Now at tax time, we have decided to try and finish our kitchen, sum what. We purchased 3 new cabinets for our peninsula when we first moved into our house. Yes 2 yrs ago. We haven't bought counter tops for it yet, only because they have to be custom made. Well we are going to be finishing it this year. That isn't they only remodel we will be making in our kitchen. We are taking out this huge pantry and installing cabinets also. That will be further down the road. We're taking out the pantry only so I can get the fridge I want. But any way, when we do the peninsula, I will be painting also. I have to find colors that match these pics.

Hopefully you can see the colors. It's kind of a greenish blue.

Apron Swap

I have signed up for the Flirty Apron Swap. If you want to sign up for it go here.


I'm just now getting into sewing more. I've had my machine for 3yrs and never really did anything with it. I now have two adorable girls, and have always wanted to make kids clothes. I have made one apron before, which was out of an old pillowcase. I think it turned out fine. I now have experience with making skirts, so i should be fine making an apron. I really can't wait to start though. I just need to find vintage material. I've looked online and that will probably be where I purchase from.

Here are the skirts I made for my girls. I made one each for them. One polka dots and one with butterflies. Each of them are reversible. I do know I will make the next ones with only one pocket. It looks too busy with 2 pockets. Sorry for the blurry photo. I'm still working on getting used to my camera on my phone.
