Week of Happy……Day One
So I am just back from Sisters, Oregon and my second season there as a teacher at the week long event called Quilters Affair. I can only say it was just as Awesome again this year as when I went in 2012. I hope you can come out next Summer in 2015. It is the show’s 40th anniversary and I am sure it will be spectacular! And come take a class from me and some of the other incredible teachers there!
I have more to share about that but, for today, I wanted to share this lovely line that is hopefully still in stores from my friend Amy Butler. I have been meaning to get this in a post for MONTHS as I have a cool giveaway going along with it.
So to start out the Week of Happy, I wanted to start with Amy Butler’s line Hapi. This line was inspired by her trip to Egypt a few years back and all of the color and pattern she soaked up there.
If you have been following me for awhile, you know that I have been making a lot of these little totes.
I had a great time giving them (stuffed with goodies) to all of my students at Quilters Affair. Cause I like giving stuff away……
And now to the fun part….Chronicle Books loves giving away stuff too….so they are going to give the following items to one lucky commentor this week. If you comment on this post or any of the next 4 days of Happy you will be entered in the drawing for a package of Amy Butler Eco-Stationery goods from Chronicle including:
A four pack of little journal books (these are a great, handy size — I am going to re-write all my passwords in one of them),
A paper mouse pad with beautiful Amy Butler prints and room for notes on the bottom,
and a gorgeous box of Notecards for those occasions that emails really aren’t the way to go.
ALSO Chronicle is giving away Amy’s Stencil book. This book is really cool, full of ideas and the stencils are on nice stiff, slick card stock, so they are great for stenciling. I can’t wait to use it in a couple areas in our house. If I ever get to that, I will show you what I came up with!
So every day this week, comment on all five of the Happy Posts. I will draw a name from ALL of the comments between now and then. And then on Friday to wrap up the Week of Happy, I have another prize – my loot from Spring Quilt Market. On each day simply tell me something that makes you happy, or made you happy that day.
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy!
