My Day Today & Tutorials, Tutorials, and more tutorials..

I have had a pretty awesome day today. Went to the grocery store. {now I can drink all the coffee I want $

and we took the kids to the park. I didn’t get any pictures because I am lazy and haven’t charged my camera after it died on the 4th. I have so much to do, but Adisyn always tries to steal my pencils {and I can never get them back} and grab the scissors , so I definitely can’t sew or write when she’s awake.

So I decided after relaxing at the park with the kids and cooking out {Yay- no dishes to wash} #

I decided to show a little love and feature some tutorials. I can’t get enough of them. I sleep, eat, and drink crafting and writing and reading and somehow now blogging. I am always thinking of things to say and ways to write things (which is GREAT) because I feel as if I am getting better at writing and my voice in the writing.

I love showing off other people’s work, because not only does it give me ideas, it lets the makers of these tutorials KNOW we appreciate them and their work and thank them for the time and commitment they give into sharing their ideas with us.

I am going to be making a button here soon for people that I feature and I will be sure to post it on here and email it to the people I have showcased already.

If you would like me to show off something you made, just let me know.

I love you guys♥
