600th post/Sew to Swap/Shop Update/Small Giveaway

Whew!
That is the longest combo title ever!
I have so many exciting things to tell you today!
I hope you're having a lovely Sunday :)

My new book Sew to Swap is officially shipping!

I will be doing a blog hop with all of the amazing and talented contributors in early November, and I can't wait to share more all about that soon!
I have a few signed copies of the book right here if you are interested :)





In other shop news, I am gearing up for the Christmas season.
In order to insure that all orders arrive by Christmas, I will only be taking pillow orders for one more week.
Please make sure that you get any custom pillow orders in no later than November 1st, so I can guarentee delivery for any special gifts :)


These pillows have been fun to make in different color combos!  :)


The name pillows are great Christmas gifts.
I love some of the new color combos and scriptures you guys have requested.
Some people have been ordering them with the baby's birth stats~birthday, weight, time etc.  So cute and personalized :)


Custom ones for grandparents is the sweetest idea!
It's hard to find things that say "Gee" and "Gramps"  :)


I've also stocked the shop with some new checkbook covers...



















...and, last but not least, this is my 600th post!!
I can't imagine my daily life without blogging...
it's like my daily journal of sorts and it's been such a creative outlet for me...
Not to mention all of the wonderful people I have "met"!
Thank you for reading and being a part of who I am and what I do.

So, I thought I'd do a tiny give-away in celebration...how about two 8 x 10 prints of your choice...
Just leave me a message telling me which two you'd pick, and I'll pick a random winner on Monday night.

Many blessings to you !

Seriously, I love all of your prints but I would probably pick some of your older She Said prints if they were available. I have several and want a wall full of them. :)
