Matching Girl and Doll Hats

Since I was on a doll hat crocheting kick and my 9yo could use a new hat for playing in the snow, I ended up making a matching girl and doll set! I let her pick the yarn and I think they came out pretty cute! I used Charisma yarn from Michaels and it makes such a soft, fluffy pom pom on top of the hat! I used one skein to make both hats. As…

Easy Crochet Doll Hat Pattern

I am the weirdo who crochets in the waiting room. I have very little patience for situations where I have to just sit there and, well… wait! I need something to pass the time and feel like I am still being productive. It is part of my wiring, I guess. Not that I don’t waste a lot of time on my own, but when I am wasting my time just waiting- that bothers me! I…

Guest Book Quilt

Last fall we had a 70th anniversary party for my grandparents. My Meemaw and Pappy are just so spunky and we are so blessed to have them in our lives and in great health! My Pap makes quite an impression. He says the wildest things and tells the funniest stories. He has a knack for finding amazing deals and making a quick profit. He also makes wooden crosses in his workshop and carries them in…

I also have tutorials for making peasant dresses in girls’ sizes.…

How to Tuck Serger Threads into the Seam

I absolutely LOVE my serger! I have the Brother 1034D, which seems to be a very popular model. I have had it for 7 years and sewed hundreds of dresses with it (FOR REAL!) Today I thought I would share how I tuck in all of those thread ends when finishing a seam with the serger or overlock machine. Maybe it is just common sense stuff that everyone who uses a serger knows, but at…

Free Printable Planner Stickers – Fitness and Motivation

I haven’t made any New Year’s Resolutions about getting in shape or losing weight. I probably should, but let’s be real here… It is a record cold spell and I am not going outside to run. I could do some workouts inside, but I am just not that motivated at this point. Today, it is just not one of my priorities and I will freely admit to that. At some point, however, I plan on…

How I Use My Happy Planner

Last year I jumped on the planner bandwagon. My sister-in-law loves hers and it looked really cute! My mom always had one to keep track of all of our school stuff, sports, and activities. She called it her “brain” which made it funny when it got lost and she was looking for her “brain.” 🙂 My wall calendar wasn’t cutting it and I was having a hard time remembering everything. Something had to change so…
