Ch-ch-ch-changes, milestones, and more

Good morning, Luvlies!  It's been an exciting time here in the LLS house.  Since my last post, we had an amazing vacation in Florida, which included my daughter's 5th birthday, a 5-day Disney cruise (HIGHLY recommend!!!!), and lots of family time.  This summer, my 13-year-old niece came from Florida to spend a couple months.  After vacation, it was time for Round 6 of Battle of the Stitches.  It was another successful round filled with wonderful designs, which you can check out here.  July was spent enjoying time with my daughter and niece, and then preparing for school.

Two weeks ago, the little cutie you've seen in most of my wearable designs started KINDERGARTEN!!!  She's way more excited about it than I am, but it's growing on me.  It's a big adjustment when you're a SAHM and your only child goes from being with you all day, every day to just a few hours each day.  But, it has given me time to get some things done that I've been wanting to do around here, though the list is still long.  If you follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed that the Luvie Birds have been busy redecorating.  There's a new logo, a new watermark on the photos, and the blog has had a complete makeover, also.  The website is next, but that will have to wait until next week.

Since my last blog post, there have been a couple of new design releases.  And, if you use code BLOGGER915 at checkout (valid 9/10-9/18/2015, you can get them for 50% off.  Click on the photo captions below to be taken to Ravelry to purchase.

Serenity Book & Tablet Cover

Last week, we reached a new milestone on Facebook. We now have 3000 Fans!  There will be a week long celebration (FANtastic Fun Week) beginning 9/21/2015.  Several other designers have donated patterns to be won.  I'll be giving you all a new free pattern (maybe more!), which you'll see below, along with giving away a few goodies (yarn, stitch markers, yarn drum, finished items, etc.)

 Every quarter, there will be a NEW, FREE design up on the blog.  Today, I bring to you the Beads & Brackets High-Low Sweater.  I love the way the two textures complement each other!  Even better, there are no seams!

This Fall Freebie will be released here on the blog as part of our FANtastic Fun Week.
