Untitled

*throws confetti*

My daughter is graduating from high school tomorrow! We’re proud and sort of stunned, all at the same time. I guess that’s how this works, huh?

HOW is that possible? I’m still working on figuring that one out! I’ll let you know when it actually sinks in!

To celebrate her accomplishment, my family and I are taking two weeks off to spend time together before she gets ready to leave for college in the fall.

Because I want you to celebrate, too, I’m offering 20% off your purchase of $5 or more in my ETSY shop, just use coupon code VACATION! Offer valid only on ETSY. My store closes until June 18 starting tomorrow making this offer TODAY only!

Prefer instant download to waiting for hardcopies in the mail? My Craftsy shop is always open!

Have a fabulous first two weeks of June…see you on the flip side!

Photobucket In November of 2012, I will celebrate my tenth year as a Linus Connection volunteer! I have spent almost all of those years at the Linus webmistress and am now on my second go as a Board Member.

I’m currently in charge of blanket packing and distribution during our monthly meetings, which simply means I make sure each facility gets what they need from the donated blankets we receive. I also write all the blog posts for our group, as well as take care of our Facebook and Twitter pages.

You will hear me talk about “Linus” a lot. When I do, I’m always referring to The Linus Connection of Central Texas, a small non-profit based right here in Austin.

My personal goal is 2 blankets a month, or 24 blankets per year.

***

In 2012, I will continue to collect Stars for Linus (see above!). In 2011, we donated 3 Stars for Linus quilts to The Linus Connection. This year, let’s try to make it 4!

Each quilt block needs to be 12″ (12 1/2″ unfinished) and made in bright colors with a light background.

You can use my free pattern or any star pattern of your choice, including Wonky Stars!

You can find my mailing address on the Stars for Linus pattern. For best results, print without scaling. If your pattern scales down, simply make the borders a little bigger and then square up to 12 1/2″!

***

We Are The Face of Quilting The Faces of Quilting come in all shapes, sizes, ages and skin tones.

Share your story of quilting on your own blog and post your photo in our flickr group!

Well, I guess that about sums it up! This week I’m planning a look back at 2011 as well as my 12 for 2012 post. I hope you are having a very happy new year!

My Memories Giveaway!

Photobucket

When I was presented with the opportunity to play with fun new software AND give a copy of that software away to one of my readers, all for free, I thought it might be to good to be true.

Was it?

No, indeed!

Not only do I get to give one of you fabulous people free software, I have a coupon for $10 off of cool crafty, and super-reasonably priced software for every Sewhooked reader!

That’s a win-win situation!

My Memories is scrapbooking software. Now, I’ve never been much of a scrapbooker in real life, but I love digital photo manipulation. I’ved used online solutions through stores with photo processing and such to create cards and photo books, and I have to admit, this is way, way cooler. It’s a crazy versatile software that allows you to do all kinds of cool things with your photos.

I have oodles (and oodles!) of digital photographs. Up until about 2005, I kept them in tidy albums, organized by dates. Then this weird thing happened.

I got my first digital camera. ..

At first, I continued to have my photos printed, but eventually, I realized I was taking way too many pictures to do that. So I began archiving them on a multitude of discs, then eventually on an external hard drive. Have I gone back to dig out those discs and look at those photos? Do I regularly visit my million and one photo files?

Sadly, no. I have thousands of photos that are just sitting, collecting virtual dust instead of being easily accessible. So what the heck, why not try a little digital scrapbooking?

Of course, the first thing I did after downloading my spiffy new software was to download all the FREEBIES! Free paper designs, templates, cards, gift tags and, and, and! What? I like free!

Once the freebies were installed, I started playing. Papers and embellishments and text, oh my…

My Memories Suite - test album2

My darling daughter’s Sweet 16 Birthday.

Once I started playing with My Memories, I had a really, really hard time stopping.  It’s super easy to use, and after just a little trial and error, I got the hang of where most everything was. There are all kinds of cool embellishments and such built in to the software (note the spiffy pencil and clips in the image below) and the software accesses your font library, so if you have a million and one fonts like I do (DaFont free fonts for the win!), the text options are endless.

My son with all the awards he won at the end of the last school year.

See, I told you I couldn’t stop! I’m an absolute novice here, but I’m super happy with these results.  There are SO MANY FUN TOYS!

My ramblings not explaining it? Watch a little video!

Now, the fun part for you! Enter to win a FREE COPY of My Memories right here on Sewhooked! All you have to do to be entered to win is to visit the My Memories website and check out their Album Themes and tell me the name of a theme that you think is really fun or cool or pretty, or crazy, or just plain interesting. Then, leave a comment with the name of the theme so I can check it out, too!  (Note: If you read this on your feed or on Facebook, please visit the original post on Sewhooked in order to be eligible to win.)

On Wednesday, September 21, I will choose a random winner and that person will receive a coupon for a free software download! How cool is that?!

Just can’t wait? Get $10 off your purchase of My Memories with coupon code STMMMS23344!

Happy crafting…and don’t forget to enter to win!
