And another!

Here's another recent quilt finish. This one was so much fun, I'm doing another with the same design in different colors. And maybe more after that:) I loved using square quilts for my babies. This one is pretty tiny, and therefore less expensive, if anyone is looking for a great gift for a new little man! I've got only little ladies being born in my life right now, I need to get on that!

A New Quilt

I finished another quilt this week! I love this quilt because it includes some of the very first fabric I ever got. My mother-in-law took me to an absolutely heavenly quilt shop near her home in Utah and bought the fabric for me. She spoils us! She is also the other Allison's mother-in-law, by the way, and she is pretty great. Anyway, most of this quilt was made from those sweet little prints. (The fabric line is Tasha Noel's "A Simple Life".)

Sorry to post two obnoxious announcements in a row, BUT....my friend Stefani has been hosting a pretty fun giveaway on her blog, and I am a part of it. It's open for a few more days, and she is giving away $50 to my shop, as well as lots of other fun things. (I totally entered for the beautiful stationary and tee shirts!) Go check it out here.

You can put in up to ten entries, so the odds are good! You can win any of these cute items, or get a huge chunk off of a quilt. I hope you win!

Ok, that's it, I promise. Back to creations as usual:)

Family Night Chart

When I was little we had a family night chart that was a little wooden house. I couldn't find anything like it already out there so I made one myself. My dad cut the house shape out for me using a pattern I drew.

Once a week we do a family night or family home evening when nothing else is planned and we all are home together. After dinner our family night usually includes a song, prayer, lesson about a gospel principle or religious topic, closing song and treat. (Last week was about working with/for each other in the family & keeping our home in order which translates to simple job charts for the kids. I'm going crazy trying to pick up everything myself!) I've seen family night charts with "activity" and "treat" as categories but right now we share the responsibility of making the treat and if we have an activity it's usually part of the lesson. Every family member has their own heart (although these pictures don't have the names). What really made this complete was the gloss finishing spray. I love it- It's kinda like laminating a project; it adds the last layer to make everything look better and the colors really pop.

I debuted this family night chart last week and it was a hit! They've asked me the past two days if we can have family night again.
