Fourth and Main Fabrics *Lots of Pictures!*

While in Cannon Falls last weekend we stopped into a new little fabric store on Main Street, Fourth and Main Fabrics. It turned out to be a beautiful store! I loved how bright it was and the fabrics were fantastic!

They were having a fat quarter sale Buy 3 get 1 free! I thought they were so pretty all together.

I learned that these rolls were called jellyrolls! Aren't they pretty!

They were offering a free pattern for this little lamb! Cute!

These buttons weren't for sale, but I thought they were pretty.

The tin ceiling was so cool! I'm not sure if it was original, but I thought it was fun.

I have been getting the bug to dive into different kinds of crafts and I think sewing might be my next choice. I'm not sure what I will come up with, but I think I'm very in love with the colors and patterns!

Etsy Treasuries

I'm going to quickly mention that I am currently in two treasuries on Etsy. For those of you who aren't familiar with Etsy treasuries, they are a group of items that an etsy members choose that are showcased and accessed on the homepage under the treasury link. Treasuries often have simliar themes such as colors or kinds of items. (clocks, bikes, etc) They are a fun way for sellers to help other sellers quickly get their items in front of a lot of people.

The items that are displayed on the front page of Etsy for everyone to see are mostly lists that are chosen from the treasuries. The theory is that the more "clicks" and comments a treasury gets, the more likely it is to make it to the front page. I don't know if that is the truth or not, but I guess it doesn't hurt to promote it!

If you would do me a favor and click on the links below I would appreciate it! If you really want to do me a HUGE favor, click the link of each of the items in the treasury! If you have an etsy id, leave a comment!

If Tomorrow Never Comes

LUV FOR MOTHER EARTH I love the colors in this one! Aren't they pretty!!!

If you are reading this post after February 26, the treasuries probably won't be there anymore because they only last 3 days (sometimes 2 days).

Grandma Viv's Wedding

I took a couple of quick snapshots during the Jeremy's Grandma Viv's wedding last night. I thought I would share them!

These are the Nelson Siblings.

These are the Brage Siblings. (Viv's Children) Kristi is Jeremy's mom. (2nd from left)

The church from the balcony.

They put Anna on the floor and she really didn't know what to think about everyone looking at her.

I found a fun website tonight. Maybe it has been around for a long time and I'm just really lame! I think it is really fun. I set up an account here. I am going to try posting some of my favorite photos, links, quotes and verses there. I really wish I knew HTML so that my web pages would be so much more cool. But alas, I must use other people's templates. Take a look at my page anyway!

On Saturday night Jeremy's grandma will be getting married. Hopefully I will have lots of fun photos!

Have a good night!

Quick Trip to the Nelson's

Last weekend we went on a quick trip to LaCrosse to visit Jeremy's parents. We picked up his sister Katie in Cannon Falls and she had a mysterious package that was delivered to her house with her dad's name on it. We brought it to the Nelson's house and this is what it contained:

(click on link if you too want to order your own!)

This is Katie enjoying a snuggie and using the free book light!

"Guess what I'm wearing??!!"

"Playing the wii in a Snuggie is super easy!"

Jeremy's mom bought them for Jerry, his dad, as a joke and they were to be delivered to Cannon Falls in time for Christmas, but apparently so many sold that they are running about 2 months behind! Have you ever seen the commercial? It is hilarious. I just can't understand why this is a needed product. Why not just use a blanket?

We also had fun playing the Wii and the Wii fit. I had the most fun doing the hula hoop and the soccer game. These are terrible photos, butt...errrr, but with all the movement it was hard to get a good shot!!!

We had a great dinner at The Freight House on Saturday night with the rest of the family (except Ryan) I had a huge piece of prime rib and scallops and Jeremy had crab legs and prime rib. It took us two days to eat all of the left over food! It was a great weekend!!

Love is in the Air!

We are excited that Jeremy's grandma will be getting married to Willie on February 21! Grandma Viv asked me to make the invitations and the place cards. I don't have a photo of the invitations because they have already been sent out (They were quickly made from a kit that I bought from Micheal's), but I do have a couple of pictures of the place cards. I really wasn't given many instructions, but I heard that there was a red theme, so this is what I came up with
