Announcing Poinsettia Pillow Giveaway Winner! (and some other "stuff")

We have a winner!  It's a new follower named Hannah. She said:

"super cute!!! I see gifts in my future!"

Well, how 'bout an early Christmas gift in the form of a lovely handmade pillow delivered to your door?

Thank you Spartans for entering the giveaway, and thank you for following!  There are now over 100 Spartans--I never imagined we'd increase so much!

I apologize for the lack of posts over the last week.  I have some new projects I'm working on, and hey, I still haven't mastered time management.  Have you?  Boo-yah!  (But seriously, has anyone mastered time management?  Any great guides out there?  I'm currently reading an e-book from a wonderful blog called Inspired to Action.  Kat, the blogs writer is fantastic--worth checking it out.)

In other good news, the Poinsettia Pillow Tutorial was featured on One Pretty Thing, Craft Gossip, tweeted by The Lettered Cottage and was briefly mentioned on Prudent Baby along with a few other sites.  Daaang.  Awesome. 

Spartan Living was also featured on 5 Dollar Dinners.  I adapted this recipe shared on a guest post at Sew Homegrown and tallied the cost for a $5 Dollar Dinner.  If you check out the recipe on the 5 Dollar Dinners blog you won't see that mentioned, but I included that information in the verbiage I initially sent in.  So, you're reading it here now.  Just trying to give credit where credit is due!

Anyhow, I'm excited to share a few new things with you here in the near future...  Some new furniture in the Spartan house, some new craft-y things, and perhaps even a few other surprises up my sleeve!  (I know my MIL will read this and think, hmm, new baby?  Nope, sorry!)


  1. I am so excited to get this!!! I know a lot of people who are probably going to get a version as a gift this year or next.

  2. I'm a bit late getting started, but your directions make me think I can do this. I'll keep you posted. :-}
