Happy Galentine’s Day

You read that correctly. It’s February 13th otherwise known as Galentine’s Day.

It’s a holiday created by the character Leslie Knope from the TV show Parks and Rec to celebrate all our gal pals. Yup a day just for girls!!!

Happy Galentine's Day

So to all the peeps in my life that give their hearts and opinions freely, supply encouragement and inspiration, give hugs when I’m down, make me laugh until I cry I say



The Island Batik Ambassadors were given their first challenge. So I grabbed the bundle of fabulous reds and pinks and went to work.


My project was a sweet little “peeps” mug rug to celebrate my “peeps”. I used the Spring Birds pattern by Morel Cabin Creations available HERE.


What is a mug rug? It’s a little quilted mat  to place your hot mug and snack because, as you know, a simple napkin just isn’t stylish.


And if you need a quick little gift…pennie pockets are great!! Tutorial is HERE.


Just bundle up a little treat with some netting….


…and tada! You have a lovely little gift.


Be sure to visit all the Island Batik Ambassadors and see what they’ve got going for ♥Galentine’s Day♥
