Quote of the Day ~ You is the Only Way to Live! ~ 12-27-2013

Free yourself from negative people. – Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like-minded.  Relationships should help you, not hurt you.  Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be.  Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it.  Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.  When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be YOU – and being YOU is the only way to truly live.

I found this awesome quote from Positive Outlooks Blog they have some truly inspirational ones on there site!  I am not sure who said these wise words though.

HUGE Giveaway Valued OVER $600!

Hi everyone, something totally different than my norm of random quilt blocks, baby quilts, crafts and the quote of the days.  I have been so fortunate to make many friends over the internet that I have so much in common with, normally it is that we are both quilters, crafters and even more likely both parents.  Well, this friend, Charlie is not quite a parent yet but at the time he was developing an anti bullying game, and that was a topic I was interested in for my two boys.  He is now holding a huge giveaway of video games!  I honestly don't let my boys play the games often, but when I do it must be educational.  I hear the majority of these games being given for FREE are good for kids.  So if you want more info about how to win this prize worth over $600 & growing, keep reading!

Message from Charlie follows:  Starting a couple weeks ago, I reached out to a bunch of indies (as many as I could find, really) asking to do a big Christmas game giveaway. I figured I'd get 10-25 games or so and it'd be a pretty huge giveaway... Boy was I wrong - NEVER underestimate the kindness and generosity of indie game developers!! I ended up getting 70 different games worth over $600, and between the extra copies of games I've gotten, I have over 350 games to give away worth over $2,900 total!!!! That's absolutely mind-blowing to me, and I am incredibly humbled by it all. In fact, because I got so many games, I've expanded on the giveaway concept, turning it into over a dozen different giveaways.

The giveaway below is the SUPER HUGE giveaway - the giveaway that has one copy of each game. Each entry is optional, so you can pick and choose which ones you do, but most of them were chosen by the game developers themselves, so entering as many as you can helps support them and helps you keep up to date with all of their awesomeness!

You can click here if you want to see the grand list of games in the giveaway, or just enter below! Good luck, and don't forget to enter all of the other Christmas giveaways as well!

Note: One winner will be chosen at random. The giveaway is open worldwide. The winners will be emailed via their Rafflecopter email address once chosen, and will have three (3) days to reply to it. If you don't reply within the three days, a new winner will be chosen at random.

There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.  ~ Nelson Mandela

2013 December ~ Baby Quilt with a Heart =)

 I just completed this adorable heart baby quilt, here is a link to the pattern over at the U Create blog.  I did many things to their pattern to make it my own.  I added  larger borders, I wanted more of the background fabric before it reached the final border which I also made larger.  For some reason, I can't make small baby quilts and the original pattern was a generous size already.  I always hope and imagine the baby doesn't grow out of it, they want to drag it around with them until college at least...hehehe (wishful thinking, I know).  The back of this baby quilt is a yummy soft lilac colored minky and it really highlights the quilting of the clouds with the added textures.  Well, I hope they love it as much as I do!  Please drop me a comment, tell me what you think too!  =)
