Free Printable Planner Stickers ~ Softball

Spring sports are kicking into high gear now! It is actually a relatively easy season for us, compared to past springs, so I won’t complain. We also have a daughter in softball so I needed some planner stickers to keep that schedule straight as well. I am using the bats for games and the balls for practices. You can download these stickers HERE. I just print them out on adhesive label paper and cut them…

10 Eco-Friendly Upcycle Projects

Earth Day is coming up! To be honest, I generally don’t do anything to celebrate it, but I tend to do a lot of upcycling projects so I thought that I would do a round-up post of some of my favorites! I picked the top ten, but you can see more of my upcycle projects HERE. Women’s Dress to Girls’ Maxi Skirt (and bracelets and headband!) I got a women’s dress at the local thrift…

Decluttering Tips ~ Clothes and Bedrooms

How is it going? Is it spring where you live yet? We might get a little snow today (CRAZY!) but at the end of last week it was 85. I decided that I have had enough and switched the girls seasonal clothes in protest. They still have pants and sweatshirts if they need to layer, but I got out the shorts and sundresses. In the process, I whittled down their clothes even more. I think…

Hipster Cat Dress

My niece just turned 5 years old and she is such a cutie pie! She has big, pink glasses and she was wanted a “kitty” birthday party. When I saw THIS fabric on Joann’s website I knew that I had to make her a special dress for her birthday. She is also very thin with long legs so I thought it would be nice for her to have something sized just for her. I decided…

Free Printable Planner Stickers ~ Soccer

Spring sports have begun. It is generally our busiest season of the year. Being in a very rural area, it is not uncommon for games to be 45 minutes (or more) from our home. On a weeknight, sometimes going in opposite directions, that can be nuts! I definitely need some planner stickers to keep track of this stuff! First up, I have some soccer planner stickers. I made them in colors that coordinate with my…

Unicorn Dresses

A few weeks ago someone absolutely destroyed my sewing scissors. I still don’t know who or how it happened. I don’t think that mere paper could have caused those nicks and warped the metal blades. It is a mystery. But I was in the mood to sew something, so I turned to the pile of projects that I already had cut out. I am not 100% happy with these, but they will probably stain and…

Elastic Sleeve Doll Peasant Dress Pattern and Tutorial

Peasant dresses are really easy to make and there are a lot of simple variations that can drastically alter the style. It is a perfect beginner sewing project! The next step up from the basic peasant dress is the addition of elastic to the sleeves. Now, for a peasant dress for a human girl I would just make an elastic casing, but since doll clothes have smaller pieces I like to just add the elastic…

Spring Decluttering Challenge Update

How is it going? We are 1/3 of the way through the Spring Decluttering Challenge. I know a few people are joining me, so I hope you are keeping track of how many garbage bags of stuff you declutter. (You can read the initial post HERE.) I have 6 bags so far! I have had a few cleaning binges, but most of it has just been done in one small area at a time. The…
