friday favorites | march 29, 2013

Happy Friday, everyone- I hope you've all had good weeks!

It's been a super busy Monday through Thursday around here with lots of phone calls and appointments being made. So much going on- we got estimates and hired a contractor for a new driveway and front walk (finally! we've needed this for years, and it'll make space for some new hydrangea and peony bushes- yay!), made an appointment with our financial planner, and cleared up tons of little things that have needed to be done for a while. Here's hoping for a much calmer Easter weekend!

On the scrappy side of things, new mid-release collections are trickling in at a slow, but steady pace. You can check them out on the Mid-Release Sneak Peeks page. And as for today's picks- everything's coming up Easter! There have actually been so many great Easter projects posted in the last week that I didn't have space to fit in them all in, so I pinned a few extras to my Easter Pinterest board, too.
