JoAnn's President's Day Sale

Pin It Now! JoAnn's is having a great sale this weekend and I managed to score quite a few good deals tonight.  Simplicity patterns are 5 for $5!  That's only $1 each!  Smokin' deal!!  All clearance fabrics are an additional 50% off too.  

Whew.  I could spend countless hours in that store.  (And hundreds of dollars, too!)

My Family Tree

Pin It Now! Can I just say that Ancestry.com is awesome?  Well, it is!  I have been spending countless hours (hence the lack of crafting!) on my family tree and have made it back into the 1300's on one side, and the 1500's on the other side. 

I've been able to find pictures, wills, books written about family members, and so much more just by working my way backwards through the family limbs. 

The membership fee is pretty reasonable for the information they give you access to.   I highly recommend it!
And, I get to cross off #6 and #7 from my 101 in 1001
