Duchess & Hare go swimming

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.

Beanpop’s Zombies go back to school, Duck Butt style

I recently achieved something I've only ever dreamed of....I managed to sew up one of my fabric strike offs FOR a pattern test! If you do pattern testing and strike off sewing(or know about them), you know that finding a balance is key, but seldom do the two end up overlapping perfectly. I've always run into scheduling issues before. This time, Katie (Wilson, of Duck Butt Designs) was gracious enough to allow me to share little sneaks of the Duck Butt Designs project throughout the week, so that I could share my pretties from the ladies over at Beanpop, too! I'm pretty darn excited about it all, too!

The struggle of taking a family photo 

Does anyone else struggle with this? We have 4 kids and it seems like any time I have more than 1 of them in a photo,  it becomes virtually impossible to get a decent one. Here is an example of one 10 minute photo session this evening, after a 4th of July event. I really… Continue reading The struggle of taking a family photo

Professional looking photographs without a DSLR or photographer. It IS possible!

Hi all! I'm still a relative newbie to the pattern testing and strike off world, but I like to think of myself as a quick study.  One thing I have discovered that all of us seem to struggle with at one point or another is photography.  Whether you're just starting out, transitioning to the next… Continue reading Professional looking photographs without a DSLR or photographer.
