Today marks my 100th post!!  I can’t believe it.  Blogging has been such a wonderful experience.  Even before I started writing my blog, I loved reading so many blogs.  Those are the blogs that inspired me to start my own.  When I started, I worried that I would run out of things to blog about.  Now, I can’t decide what I want to write about first.  My mind is always thinking about my next post!!  LOL!  AND the friends!!!  Can I just say I never dreamed I would make so many supportive, helpful and just wonderful new friends.  I have made some really good friends through blogging, though we’ve never met in person.  Amazing.  Everyone in blogland always comments that blogging friends are the best.  It’s so true!!  To help celebrate my 100th post milestone, I’m having a little giveaway!!!

I’m giving away 3 Charm packs of Le Petit Poulet by American Jane for Moda and the pattern for “Endless Summer” by Pam Buda for Heartspun Charms.  “Endless Summer” was also the Le Petite project for March.  The pattern calls for the 3 charm packs, so it’ll be enough to make the pattern.  I love the fabric.  Gorgeous colors and with a few little roosters thrown in.  To enter my giveaway, all you have to do is hop on one foot, leave 5 comments…. no just kidding! πŸ™‚  Just leave a comment on this post.  I will close comments Sunday night.  I will announce a winner on Monday.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and Happy Easter!!

Giveaway Closed.  Thank you!
