I ♥ Your Blog

So I joined this swap on swap-bot to get more traffic to our blogs by exchanging blog buttons with our partners. Im so glad I did too, because there are so many amazing bloggers out there and this makes it so much easier to find them.

One of the bloggers I partnered with has a wonderful blog Jexyland. She is so inspiring! She offers tutorials on just about everything, links to other tutorials, pdf downloads and so much more! I will definitely check her out often! I love tutorials and making new things that are sometimes outside my box! See the little "I ♥ Handmade Stuff!" button over to the right --------> with the cute little sewing machine! She made that too and offered them up for grabs on her blog! Isn't it just cute! I just had to have one :) So please take a minute, run on over to her blog and check it out, You won't be disappointed!

Another partner is the writer of this fabulous blog Only In Cambodia. It's a wonderful exploration that takes it's readers on an insider's journey through the real world of Cambodia. Filled with beautiful articles, pictures and her own experiences, it really touches your spirit and gives you a feeling that you have actually taken your own spiritual journey, met the people and learned the ways of this magnificent country. A great read!

Maybe if I put it out there...

for the entire blog world to see, I will make it to goal. I'm going to be 40 on my birthday in January and I want to lose the few extra pounds Ive kept on since my daughter was born 5 years ago before my birthday. Wish me luck and please feel free to leave feedback anytime, maybe it will keep me motivated :)

I just finished week 5 of the couch to 5k running plan. I used to run everyday, and was always athletic in school, but hurt my knee 2 years ago and it just got too easy to sit around at my sewing machine :) so now Im trying to get back to making time for me again and taking charge of my health. So here's to forty, I hope you are good to me! :)

Kiwi's Blogger Follower Swap

Swap-bot swapper's/follower's please leave your comments here. Thanks! I'm excited to be swapping with you!

EQ7... Finally Scallops!

I finally figured out how to make my scalloped border in EQ7 You have to make your border into blocks and then in the block area with the curved line make a block with the curve u desire then add that curve into your blocked border then insert another ( i used a mitered) border just in front of the blocked border with the curves, then when u color them both in, only color inside the curve and the new inserted border the same color and Wa La.. You have a Scalloped border! :) Guess I could have been working on the real thing instead of creating my virtual quilt, but it was so much fun!
