Dream Home – Kitchen

We are moving into our new apartment next month (!!!) and while we still won’t be able to decorate however we want… I sure am having fun thinking about how I WOULD decorate it if I could! One word: COLOR.  via  I LOVE this dining area!! I really really love these red chairs and SHELVES!…

Bobbin Case Cozy

My little Juniper absolutely loves my bobbin case. And even when she’s not trying to grab it and play with all the fun goodies inside, that stupid plastic case is always popping open and making it’s own messes. So I decided to make a case for it. Ok… I know what you’re thinking. I could…

River Jayne

Welcome to the world little River! ? Hello my sweet little new niece. Look at your precious little face! Oh how I wish I didn’t live 1000 miles away. (1,197 to be precise) Soon enough though I’ll come visit and give you lots of mooshy auntie loving. Until then, sleep well through the night and…

Wedding Crazyness

My past week has been filled with all sorts of wedding preparations. I altered a wedding dress (turned it into a corset back), made a pretty veil, took in a bride’s maid dress, made a flower girl dress for my little cutie, sewed matching shoes and made necklaces for the two flower girls, AND baked…

Happy Belated Embrace Your Geekness Day!!

I meant to make this post yesterday, but the days have all been blurring together lately! In honor of Embrace Your Geekiness Day, I made these wicked awesome earrings! (Forgive the poor photography, it’s late… and the paint is still drying!) And here is my all time favorite geeky song. I love Marian Call ?…

Craft Room Inspiration

My craft area is a disaster. As usual. So I’m sitting here, staring at it, trying to get motivated to start working on it. BUT of course that just doesn’t sound very appealing right now. So instead I’ll just post pretty pictures of what I wish my art room looked like. *sigh* “I’d rather have…

I Love Weekends ?

After an extremely stressful week at the office, I finally had some time to relax and do some sewing on Friday night. I finished up two outfits for Juniper, made a new stuffed animal, started a drawing commission, and finished up some projects for my sister’s new baby. (AND I got to spend lots of…

I Shirred!

I’ve been wanting to try elastic shirring FOREVER, but I’d been too intimidated by it since I’m new to sewing. Plus, I had a hard time finding elastic thread. I finally decided to give it a try last night, and I’m addicted! This top turned out so cute! I’ll definitely be experimenting more with it…

Recycled Materials Diaper Bag

When I started learning to sew, I got a request from my sister (who is preggo with girlie #3) for a diaper bag made from recycled materials. Sounded like a fun project to me! I am fairly happy with the outcome. It definitely looks handmade! Which I guess is a good thing, right? It’s made…

Art Journal – Entry #1

I started an art journal of sorts. It’s not in book form yet. I’ll bind all of the pages together once I’m done. I finished the first page today. This is probably the most therapeutic thing I have ever done. It’s hard for me to explain how I’ve been feeling lately, but by the time…
