Crayon Bag Give Away

My name is Stacey. I am new to the craft blogging world. In May of 2009 I was all the sudden hit with the urge to sew. I started checking books out at the library, talking to my mom, and looking to the blogging world for sewing ideas. The urge to sew has turned into a passion for sewing. I love it. I find that when I sit at the sewing machine I relax and am able to focus and enjoy. My blog is still really new and I am working on posting more often. I am a mom of three beautiful kids. I have a five year old, three year old and a 6 month old. I also teach a preschool class out of my home three days a week. Needless to say my life can be crazy.

I came up with the title "In a Quiet Afternoon" when I was sitting at the computer setting up the blog and trying to think of a title. My 3 year old son was climbing all over my back as I was typing. I had the thought all I need is a quiet afternoon and I could get so much done. The light went on and the title stayed with me. I do often start a project in the afternoon and then finish it later in the night time.

I love to sew, cook, read, and just have fun. I hope that my blog with reflect all of these things. I am so excited to give away something. These crayon bags are so much fun and great to take on the go. My kids take theirs to church but they are even great for in the car, Dr. office or wherever.

(My camera doesn't even do this material justice. I am currently on the hunt for a new camera because I really dislike the Vivitar camera we got at Christmas)
