August: Cre8 + 2 = Me and You
As summer draws to an end, it's important to reflect on the time you have spent with your family, children, friends, and neighbors. I created this contest as a way to motivate you (and me) to make sure we took the time we wanted to spend time with our loved ones, making memories while creating something. In my case, its my children. I kick off the series showing you some things that my children and I created. Then its your turn to link your entries, of course with a chance to win prizes!

September: Sew-Along or Quilt-Along
Want to sew with me? Check my blog to see what it is I'm making. I'll have a full step by step picture tutorial so we can create something together. Then you can show off your creating in the link party at the end!
