Landry’s Dora Luau 2nd Birthday

Landry just turned 2.  Where has the time gone?  My baby is turning in a little girl in the blink of an eye.  She talks (in 2 languages, I might add), she runs, she dances, she has opinions, and over the weekend, she started trying to sing the songs playing on the radio.  Cutest thing … Continue reading

Extreme Makeover: Sewing Table Edition

Extreme Makeover: Sewing Table Edition

I mentioned a while back that I really wanted a serger.  Well, got one for Mother’s Day.  And, it’s awesome!  I don’t know how I sewed without it before – it makes sewing sooooo much easier!  I got the BabyLock Imagine, which has the auto tension and jet-air threading – it really takes all the … Continue reading

Reflections on 40…and the Party

Reflections on 40…and the Party

I turned the big four-oh last week…  I am 40 years old….. Yep, tastes like vinegar.  But, with all the cookies, cake, and candy I’ve been eating since my birthday, I think it’ll taste sweeter as times passes.  After all, it’s just a number, right?  I certainly don’t feel like I’m forty.  People tell me … Continue reading

At long last, I’ve finished detailing how I made the super cute twirl skirt featured in my last post. It took a lot longer to write it up than I ever expected. In the meantime, I  whipped up another one of these little skirts on Friday night to give as a gift for a Baby … Continue reading

A Sassy Skirt for a Silly Girl

A Sassy Skirt for a Silly Girl

As I mentioned in my last post, part of the reason I wanted to learn to sew is so that I didn’t have to pay large sums of money to the very talented people on Etsy.  I love all of the cute holiday-themed outfits they sell, so I wanted to make one for Landry for … Continue reading

Everyone has to start somewhere

Everyone has to start somewhere

I just took up a new hobby.  Sewing.  I always said that sewing skips a generation, because why do you need to learn to sew, if your Mom can do it for you?  Well, my Mom has left us to go to a much better place, so I must learn in order to give my … Continue reading
