Have you entered the awesome giveaways that are still going on right now? They're listed below, so make sure to get your entries in! Don't miss out!

I know this blog is mostly about my craftyness, but big things are happening in my family and I wanted to share them with you guys! I know you likely won't be very interested, but I am going to do it anyway!

Mom has been busy cutting up jean squares for me...and those are going into a project that I'm going to post about really shortly! So excited for this one!

Dad has been busy studying and doing school stuff. He's gone back to school at at 55 to become a math teacher or math tutor. We're so freaking proud of him! It's been a shock to his system though, so we're trying to help him breathe through all of it!

My next youngest sister (I'm the oldest) has decided after five years of working for McDonalds that she's fed up with it and got a new job! She starts on March 5th. It's actually closer to our house than hers and she has no car, so she's going to be moving in with us this weekend so she can get to and from easier. Big change for her and for us, but I'm so stinkin excited!

My younger sister after that just found out that she's having a boy! She's 20 weeks and we've all been super interested to find out, because it's a big deal! This is the first child of the next generation in our family so it's a huge deal...and I'm so stoked to be having a nephew! :-)

And then my brother got the lead roll in his school play and we all get to go see him this week in it! I'm so proud of my family!

I know this is all useless info to most of you, but I'm so proud of my family and what they're accomplishing. I just couldn't hold it in any longer. Thanks for bearing with me through this, but I just had to brag on them and tell you guys how much I love them.

Stay tuned for my jean square project in the next few days, I"m so stoked to share it with you guys!

Have a great weekend!
