I DID It ! !

I did it!!

29 projects in 29 days!

{*A fat quarter is a one-fourth yard cut of fabric that (usually) measures 18" x 22"}

For the whole month of February I made ~something~ every day using a fat quarter of fabric as the main/exterior fabric.

Leap year = 29 days, 29 fat quarter pieces of fabric, 29 creations!!}

I hope next year other crafties will join me! Stay positive and love your life!

Tuesday to: Much Ado About You

{this is a sneak peek of a new monthly "featured post" I am starting. Every 2nd Tuesday of the month I will be reviewing a product that I have purchased and love, and possibly also sharing a short interview with the artist/shop owner. It will be called "Tuesday to: {artist name here}". I couldn't wait for the 2nd Tuesday of November to share this review, though, so here is the first "Tuesday to:" a couple weeks early! Love the idea? Don't Love? Please leave a comment!}
