New Buttons + Some Info.

Dears, Let me direct your attention to the cute PROJECT:craft button Lindsay made.  It links directly to our Eventbrite page where you can purchase your ticket.  There are still spots left and Lindsay and I would love to see your faces there.

I have received a few questions regarding PROJECT: craft and I'd like to address those now.

Question: I'm not really crafty, can I still come?
Answer: YES! Please come.  You don't have to have a degree in fine arts to come and have an enjoyable time.

Question: What if I don't have a project to bring to work on?
Answer: No worries!  Each attendee will get a craft kit upon entering.  You can work on that, sit + chat, eat our yummy refreshments, and keep your fingers crossed during the giveaways.

Question: I have an etsy shop/blog/website and I'd like to donate to the giveaways during PROJECT:craft.  Is that possible?
Answer: Absolutely!  Lindsay and I have already rounded up some great prizes and we would love to have more.  Your etsy shop/blog/website will be advertised during PROJECT: craft and in the posts on our blogs leading up to the event.

Question:  What are you going to be working on that night?
Answer:  I've had a sweet cross stitch idea in my brain for a long time that I want to work on that night.  Other options: cutting out pattern pieces, updating baby's memory book, scrapbooking, card making, sewing, knitting, the options are endless friends.  You can bring anything and we'll make accommodations for you.

Now, I'd like to direct your attention to the other new button on my sidebar.  A few months ago I was contacted by a PR firm working with my church.  They invited me to participate in virtual blogger conference where they would be seeking feedback from bloggers regarding the updated website.  They also invited me to create my very own profile on to share with the world.  By clicking on the button, you'll be sent directly to my profile page where I share a little bit more about my conversion and my testimony of the Gospel. I also answer some questions regarding my faith.  I'll be answering more questions in the future so check back often.  Or if you'd like to ask me a question directly, please don't hesitate to send me an email.

This is our last official weekend of the summer.  I plan on making the final preparations for our annual Back to School Feast + maybe taking in the county fair.  We'll see if my allergies can hold up.

  7. How cool is that, that you were contacted? That must mean one thing. They think your being a good example. Way to go!

  8. ditto on the possible fair this weekend & hoping the allergies will hold up. sadly, that's the only reason i've been dreading this week & laying low.

    hey, were you & your sweet family at the mall tonight? i swear i saw your husband strolling some kids out of the gap. but then again it seems like i see him frequently, but sadly i don't spot you. i gotta get better at my dandee sightings! he's nice, but you're my fave. (:

    have considered the craft night, but ny datebook forecast is looking swamped. ):

    no matter. it'll be perfect i'm sure. you've got the midas touch girly.

    p.s. excited about your mormon page. not sure mine would be interesting i just read everyone else's & run from the idea of creating my own.

    way to be a good example! ;)

    and i have to say, i am thoroughly impressed you lined up your pictures just perfect for the buttons! I probably would've spent several hours trying to do that. lol. Love your profile!

  12. those pictures are so dang cute! you're a doll! i like this idea of the .org and profile pages in your faith. when will methodists do this?!

  13. Did Lyndsay make your "I'm a Mormon" button for you? Is there a place we can get one too, because it is a.dor.a.ble!
