I'm Baaaack!

Thank you all SO much for all your warm wishes regarding our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Jon and I had an AMAZING time last weekend. We were greeted at the hotel with a bottle of wine...


And some chocolate-covered strawberries...


I mean, look at these!


LOOK!!! The printing is edible... it's not a piece of paper you have to rip off! YUM!


The staff was so courteous and attentive. Everywhere we went -- the front desk, the spa, the restaurant, the bar -- we were greeted by "Happy Anniversary, Mr. & Mrs. Young!" and presented with cards and gifts...


They even printed a special menu for us at their restaurant...


At the spa, all we wore were these super plush robes and fuzzy slippers. We felt like royalty! :)


I could've stayed there for weeks! But alas, we had to get back to the real world eventually.

This week has been pure madness for me, trying to catch up with work. On Wednesday evening I had my presentation for the Quilt Guild in Peoria, IL, and it was such a fabulous time. I met some amazing local women and we had such a great time chatting and getting to know each other. This is what my little set up looked like...


Michael Miller Fabrics donated a couple FQ Bundles to give away as door prizes and those were a HUGE hit! They donated the Mezzanine and Flora & Fauna bundles you see on the top of this stack and I supplemented the giveaway with an Andalucia bundle and a couple of sewing pattern bundles. All in all we had 5 awesome door prizes, so congratulations to the lucky ladies who walked away with these bundles of goodness.


And thanks a bunch to all the local peeps who came out to see me that night!!! :)

Well, I'm sure you are all on the edge of your seats waiting to find out who was the lucky winner of my Flora & Fauna bundle, so without much further ado, the randomizer picked.... drum roll please...

Gosh, it's so hard to picka favorite! There are so many good ones. :) My favorite prints are dandelions, ta dots and blossoms, and my favorite colorways are the turquoise and stone. So how's that for narrowing it down?!

Have a great time on your trip!

Congratulations, Sandi!!! Please email me your mailing address at info@modkidboutique.com and I'll get you this little bundle of happiness right away.

It's off to work I go... toodooloo
