Getting My Act Together

At the beginning of the year I was challenged to come up with a word to focus on this year. I couldn’t really come up with a specific word, but I had the general idea that I wanted to “get my act together.” I bought a cute planner and decided I was going to be organized. I love my planner and it is a great start, but sometimes it gets lost on the mess of my…

The Last Easter Dress

Vote for the final round of Project Run and Play Season 13 HERE! When I found out that I was having my first daughter I went out and bought the sweetest little pink dress I have ever seen! I was so excited to get to dress her up in adorable little girl clothes! When her first Easter came a few months later, although I know that has nothing to do with the true meaning of Easter,…

Egg Nest No-Bake Cookies

Every now and then I find that one of my blog posts has disappeared. I probably accidentally deleted it at one point when I cleaned things up around here. “Cleaning” the blog is better than cleaning the house- it actually stays that way! Anyway, the other day, I was on a crazy cooking spree with breakfast sandwiches, muffins, and cookies. Spring sports are starting up and with three of the girls on three different teams…

Easter Baskets 2016

My shop isn’t officially open, but I made some Easter baskets this year for new babies who wanted to match their older siblings. 🙂 I accidentally dyed my hand aqua with this one. Oops! The camo baskets were dipped in natural walnut hull dye. They are probably all a little too young to hunt eggs this year, but I am sure they will carry a few treats on Easter. I am glad that I am…

WIP Wednesday ~ Bring on Spring!

OK. I am slacking on the blog posts again. Yes, I have all of these awesome projects here and I am only giving little teasers about them. One of these days I will catch up enough to start blogging about them for real. From last week…~No, still no pics of those doll quilts. I am not sure if our wood glue is any good- it might have frozen- so the doll bunk beds still need…

Wave Fabric T Shirt Dress

When I was making Easter dresses this year, I started to run out of ambition. I ended up making a cheater dress for the youngest. She can’t voice her opinion yet and my best friend reminded me that there are no others to pass it down to later, so it would get less wear than the other dresses. I liked that logic. It is just a simple T shirt dress. I got a basic Garanimals…

The Poofy Dress

So, it is November and I still have not finished blogging about the girls’ Easter dresses. The thing about the navy and white theme this year is that they are so versatile. It just looks classy for any season. This dress turned out so beautiful and – even if the pictures don’t show it by her refusal to smile – she loves it! I made a sparkly satin bodice (remnant from Joann’s) using The Party…

Lace Overlay High Low Dress

I should be getting ready for Halloween, but I am procrastinating. Instead, I am backtracking and blogging about another Easter dress. This was one of the dresses that was completely dictated by my daughter’s preferences. It also ended up costing me nothing to make! So, we both won. The navy lining, made from another layer of my old bridesmaid dress, stops above her knees and the high-low lace overlay is much longer. It is a…

Sunrise Dress Tutorial

I am going to be totally honest here. This was my least favorite dress when we sketched out all of the designs. In the end, I LOVED it! Sometimes my 10yo’s fashion ideas make me raise an eyebrow, but it was her dress, so I went along with it. Yeah, she was right.  This time. I pushed for a wide neckline and scoop back because I knew it would look great on her body type.…

Blushing Izzy Dress Tutorial

My girls get a lot of say in their Easter dresses. Isabelle came to me with a sketch of her Easter dress a few months ago. She was insistent on the cross-front bodice (I later found out she copied it from a very old Barbie book I didn’t even know we had.) When I decided to go all 1950’s vintage, we looked on Pinterest and etsy for some styles that matched up with her design.…
