This month I also partnered up with Jaime Lyn from Crafty Scrappy Happy and to celebrate her 1 year blogging anniversary with a HUGE link party! I also shared some fantastic features from the projects that were linked up!

And lastly, we have a fabulous giveaway going on with D’Enfant Creations! Hop on over to enter to win this adorable Diaper Bassinet! Giveaway closes on Sunday at 9:00 pm PT!

On a separate note, today marks the last day that GFC will work on WordPress blogs (like me). I’m not sure how many of you actually follow DDD on there (since I never put the widget up) but I would hate for you to miss out on anything! Be sure to subscribe via RSS or follow on Facebook, Twitter or Linky (in my side bar).

I can’t wait to show you everything I have planned for March! Any requests? :)
