Hello all and happy first day of March!  Yep, spring is on its way and I cannot wait, can you?  To celebrate, my blog buddies Layla, Rhoda, Sarah and I are all throwing a round of Spring Fling Link Parties just in time to get creative for the coming season.

We encourage new bloggers to hop on board the spring fling train too, so mark your calendars, dates and categories are below. I have a few fun spring DIY ideas to share as well, can’t wait!

Also, for many of you who have written to me about posts and projects from summer 2009 where there are no images anymore, I am aware of the problem!  It has to do with pictures that were previously stored in a Picasa web album that I deleted *oops* assuming the images got rolled over in my WordPress move in September 2009 and I just found out they didn’t {thanks Google! insert swear word} – unfortunately they need to be rebuilt so please be patient, I’m working on it! 

Also, for those of you like me who love Pinterest, I’ve added more boards, so be sure to check them out, you may want to add them to your “follow” list!

I’m off to the sewing machine shop now, either Mr. Singer is getting a repair or I’m buying a new one… stay tuned.
