Hey yall! How are you? Hope this post finds you well! I've been a busy little beaver, sewing my way through a couple loads of strike offs and doing a couple pattern tests.

Catching up: Projects lost in the shuffle of the #momlife

This post is going to serve as a catch up post. While I love to sew and love to share, I have kids a fairly busy life, which means that often, things don't get shared. I'm really tired of looking at my pretties and realizing I didn't share them. Sewing, for me, is all about the tangible item/reward that comes from it, as well as the feeling of having completed something. Lord knows, nothing else in this house ever feels like it's really "completed". (Laundry or dishes, anyone?...

She recently had a scare, where someone took a photo of hers, removed her watermark, then used the picture to market their product.

The Easter dress

I don't know about you, but I've never been a big fan of Easter. I mean, I'm a fan of celebrating the religious reasons for it, just not the whole frilly dress up, overgrown bunny rabbit 🐰 and candy hunt parts. This year it's a completely different ball game.  So I must look at my… Continue reading The Easter dress

If You Give A Mouse A Cookie individual sensory bins (preschool / kindergarten) 

I recently enrolled my son in an amazing christian, parent-led homeschool co-op preschool (wow, that's a mouthful. Haha). Each mama gets to teach one of the classes for the group. The class I get to teach is Sensory Exploration.  We have a different book for each week that we base our reading and activities around.… Continue reading If You Give A Mouse A Cookie individual sensory bins (preschool / kindergarten)
