Happy Friday everyone! Valentine’s Day has come and gone and our Valentine’s gift was the stomach bug. We’ve all weathered it in different ways and sadly it effected the husband the worst. I’m really thinking that a sick husband is worse than a sick child! Anyhow, hopefully we are all on the mend and can have our make up special heart day breakfast and dinner sometime this weekend. That said, it’s time to start thinking spring and Easter!

great FABRIC: I recently discovered a new fabric shop on etsy called Westwood Acres. I just love the fabric sets she puts together!

to whet your APPETITE: We love potatoes in this house and we also love nachos…this recipe for baked potato nachos seems a perfect fit!

be NEAT (as in organized): Came across this lovely craft room/sewing room on Pinterest as I’m collecting ideas on my future new studio space in the year to come.

a TUTORIAL to do: With Easter coming in a few weeks, I thought I would focus on Easter Basket tutorials: this is what our baskets look like…an easter bunny basket. It was super easy and so fun!

becoming more AWARE: Ash Wednesday was this week and the start of Lent. Ann Voskamp has a lovely family Lent guide with pictures of the life of Jesus from different artists. This is on our list this year.

something to SEW: Sew Liberated just revealed their newest patterns and oh! how I swoon over these! I really love all of them!

to TRIM my house with: We will make our Easter tomb this weekend and set up our seeds of kindness on the table. Stay tuned to the blog in the coming weeks for more details as we continue and add to these family traditions.

ILLUSTRATION to stitch: One of my goals this year is the make an embroidered version of one of these thumbprint trees. This is another example of a printed one I found this week.

CUTE: This tutorial for these little nesting dolls is super cute!

Have a happy weekend!!!
