Congratulations to.....

Aimee, #102.
I used a random number generator and it was her lucky day. She won a gift certificate to be used to design her own accessory or towards a purse. I'll be sending you an email to discuss the finer points. If I don't have a response to my email within 3 days, I'll pick a new winner.

Thank you to all who participated in the carnival and to those of you wonderful folks who left such glowing comments on my blog. I really appreciate the feedback you gave me on your favorite styles and fabric choices. Maddy Moo takes customer input very seriously and hopes to cover the range of tastes.

For those of you who didn't win, thank you for looking through my Maddy Moo site and keep us in mind for future gift giving occasions or just a special treat for yourself! If you are interested in earning wonderful hostess gifts, consider having a Maddy Moo party. We could do an online party, it's so simple. Contact me if you are interested.

Warmest Regards,
Kathie B

Spring is here

It's been so lovely outside. All the flowers are starting to bloom and the trees are unfurling their leaves. Another hallmark of Spring, the parks are filling up. I was at our Tot Lot the other day and saw 3 other families from the neighborhood. Usually it's just us and the kids get bored easily. We've got loads of parkdates on our calendar and allergies are in full swing. :)
Ahh... sniffle sniffle

I Want This

Isn't this great? I think we need one of these.

Time flies...

Has it really been over a month since I last blogged? I am so sorry to those of you (okay, my Mom and my best friend. I don't even know if my Mom really reads this though.) who diligently check to see what's new over here in our corner of Virginia.

As you can tell by the links, I've gotten very busy with my Maddy Moo Creations business. March was the first month I started having home parties and I've done really well. This is turning into a very fun hobby - I get to help women create all kinds of neat purses. They are lovely and I'm constantly rotating through my selection.

The kids are awesome. The baby isn't so much of a baby anymore. He has 6 teeth and I think there are more on the way. Since Daylight Savings Time they've been staying up later - how can they pack so much play into one day? D. is crawling like a little bear, it won't be long before he starts walking. Oh, but he keeps ME running.

I am trying to teach myself Adobe Photoshop. If anyone has tips, let me know. I really want to become more adept at digital scrapbooking and making other cool things.

We finally have a fenced in backyard! Yea! Of course we are just becoming good friends with the family directly behind us. Now we have to walk all the way around the block to go play in their backyard. go figure. We are considering putting a gate in the back but the fence is too new and I don't want C. to cut it. C. has been busy with projects. He is refinishing a farmhouse table that belonged to my family when I was growing up. It has a lot of character and it's going to be very sentimental to use it with my family for our meals and daily life.

Well that's a brief surmise of the past month. I won't let too much time go by again.
Thanks for staying tuned.
