Weekend Spotlight

Posted on April 24th, by Amy in give away, My kids. 462 comments

Hi there!
For this weekend, I thought we would stay here . . . it’s my 500th post, and I’m giving away a Blush Layer Cake to celebrate!!

I’m always amazed at how fast the posts add up!  I’m so thankful for each of YOU, my readers, for being here with me through it all :)

For your chance to win —
1 – Leave a comment
2 – Become a fan on facebook, and leave a comment
3 – Subscribe to this blog, and leave me another comment

Hopefully that’s quick and easy enough for all of you to want to play along :)
My Thursday was spent with these little guys :

Ella, Emmalie, Sophia, and Owen’s kitty’s – notice Owen trying to get his back?

At breakfast I asked Ella if I could make her a kitty.  I told her I knew it wasn’t the same as a real kitty, but would it help?  Her face lit up a little, and she agreed.  That led to all four of the kids picking fabrics for their own kitty, and just before bedtime, I finished closing up the seams.  They all helped to stuff them too.

They are the free Amy Butler pattern and cute and relatively easy.  The only changes we made: they have a smile, and eyelashes.  I think they look less alien like :)

I will select a winner for the Layer Cake on Tuesday, the 27th – Good Luck!
