A Flurry of Activity and a MARVELOUS MAY MARKET GIVEAWAY!!!

I have been having so much fun getting ready for Spring Market. It has been a flurry of creative activity. We have meetings on Mondays and Randy and I bounce ideas off of each other. It is a Creative Monday for sure and it sets the stage for the weeks activities. It has been crazy busy too! We were so much more organized this year, plotting a course, having a plan and making lists. We were able to get so much more done and I am so proud of us and myself. I am such a procrastinator and I know that without a list and a list with deadlines I will never get everything done since I will push it off. This year, knowing that about myself, made me take action early and we have been doing this for months now with real progress and success arriving daily at my door now! I can't tell you the excitement as I see that UPS man pull up and unload boxes! I have received two shipments of fabric, the first was my new Christmas line, "The Twelve Days of Christmas", delivering now to shops and then the next day I received my Lil Miss Cutie Patootie Line from Quilting Treasures that I will be showing at Spring Market!! I am so thrilled to be designing for Quilting Treasures, the company and people are amazing!
My new Christmas Line called "The Twelve Days of Christmas" shipping to quilts shops now!

Then on Thursday, the girls day, everyone was so excited as the UPS man brought in bolts of Lil Miss Cutie Patootie fabric! Megan loves cutie and wanted her picture taken with the fabric! LOL She didn't even want to wait for me to unwrap it!

 I ordered my new Moo cards and just received them along with my logo I had printed at Spoonflower! Instead of making a quilt for my sign I designed it and had it printed, I am quilting the cheater panel now!
My new Moo cards! I love them, I even did mini moos to make tags with. I am going to tie them onto giveaways! 

Here is my Spoonflower sign that I am quilting now, a cheater panel that I designed in Photoshop and had printed at Spoonflower, fun! 


 I have also designed a whole new website and my brother, who is a computer brainiac, is helping me go live! It will be great to see it all come together soon. I also have been working on a book to go along with my new line of fabric. The patterns are so cute! I love them and hope that it goes well, it has been a huge amount of work and worry. There is always the fear that no one will want it after I have spent so much time and money to put it out there. But, heres to pushing through the fear and throwing caution into the wind, full speed ahead!

There are still more deliveries to come, T-shirts that Randy designed are on order, a sign for our booth pattern rack is on its way, the printer is printing my postcard mailers, Tina delivered all the scarecrow and Fabulous Folded Bag samples for us to photograph and Gurutej designed a Lil Miss Cutie Patootie doll for my book so its all coming together. We are one month away, so much still to finish up, to get ready, to sew. I am finishing up a order now for some charms to give away at market at my schoolhouse talks and I still need to work on my DVD. There is an excitement in the air as we get closer and see our hard work showing up in finished products!!
