Heading off for vacation =)

I have time for one last post before we head off for a week of vacation in Orlando. We hope to have a nice, relaxing time and may go "see the mouse" a few times. I'll be looking around for inspiration all week, since i won't be able to work on anything myself.

Here's a few pictures of things I've recently acquired!

I found these at

They offer 500 business cards for free! I'm hoping to start seriously doing an etsy shop and maybe try to sell items in other places as well, so I was excited to find these cards for only the cost of shipping. They offer many different designs in color, all still free! You should go check them out if you have any card needs!

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a good day. My coworkers suprised me with cards, balloons, lottery scratch off tickets (I didn't win so I had to continue working, hehe), muffins, and then we went to lunch. My husband got me some sweet cards and made me a yummy cake and dinner. My Mom is a fellow crafter and shares my love of fabric and gave me a gift certificate for and also sent me this awesome handmade coaster set and handmade cards and bracelet! I love them all. Thanks mom! (you can visit her at )

When I got home today I also had this waiting in my mailbox, my fabric order from
I've got so many things I want to make! And to make it worse i'm going out of town and away from my sewing machine for 7 days! Their shipping was really fast. I was impressed!
And one last picture, here's my coffee sleeve (I showed it last week on my blog) in action. Perfect size! I gave this one away to someone at work. I'm looking forward to making many more! I may list some in my upcoming shop.

I hope everyone has a great week!
