Easy Ribbon Wands

I thought ribbon wands would be a fun craft project for the girls and a nice addition to the little “photo shoot” we do with their new mama-made dresses each year.

Here is how we made them: Cut dowels into three pieces- each 12″ long. Sand…

Men’s Dress Shirt to Girls’ Vintage Style Dress

Ever since THESE dresses, I just can’t seem to get over that whole retro, vintage style. I love the 1940s/1950s era of fashion! I wanted to do a “shirt dress” style, but decided to upcycle/refashion one out of a men’s dress shirt. (There are also a few aqua polka dot details just for fun!)

Girls Ruffle Apron Pattern and Tutorial

My 4yo has been not so patiently waiting for her new apron. Previously, she used a hand me down one from her sister, but it was getting pretty small. She wanted to match my cupcake apron, but I let her choose the fabric for the back, ruffle, and ties. She LOVES to bake with me. Especially cookies or anything with sprinkles. And now we can match. I took pictures as I was making this apron,…
