So I was thinking...


of putting together a granny square swap if I had enough people interested in it. My thought is to make one granny square for each person that signs up. I would then have everyone ship their granny squares to me and I would disburse all the diferent squares out to everyone. I thought it would be fun to see what everyone made with them. So what do you think? Anyone interested? If we have a small number maybe we could come up with a different crochet themed swap. So leave me some feedback!

I have found out that we will be going to Springfield, MO this weekend for my birthday so that I can do some thrifting and visit

the Red Velvet Art Store!!

This will be my third time there and I have been lucky enough to meet Elsie twice. This time if I see her I am not going to be shy and ask to get my picture taken with her. I am a dork but she has been such an amazing source of inspiration for me.
So if you live in the Springfield area or have been before where are some of your favorite places to thrift, shop, and eat? We are only going to be there for a day and half so I am sure we will be cramming a lot in!

Oh... Poot got me a pink Wii controller today too! I can play in style now!

Well... I hope everone has a fabulous weekend. I will be back to post all about my birthday celebrations! **Don't forget to let me know what you think about a granny square swap!!
XOXO
