A couple of weeks ago I held my last Young Women in Excellence as YW President. Since it was my last time and I love to sew it was a no brainer to have a sewing inspired YWE. When I found another post about Personal Progress a Pattern for life I just had to jump right in.
Just last week the LDS church release the new theme for the Youth of the church for 2017. I am so excited for the theme and the significance to our church.
If any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given to him.
But let him ask in Faith, nothing wavering. But he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Do you ever have an end of summer party? At the end of last year we decided to do a funeral for summer and was a blast. Our girls totally got into it and we had a wonderful evening together. As leaders we hosted our summer party. Because we all miss summer when it comes to an end. So we threw this little Mormon funeral together and bid our goodbyes.
I am so excited to be sharing Posy Garden fabric today. I love the colors, prints and diversity of the fabrics. I knew as soon as I saw the fabric I wanted to make my daughter something for school. She loves leggings and a long tunic top was just perfect for this fabric.
Costumes are one of my favorite things to make. Especially if I get to be creative when I do it. My little miss always has some fun ideas for costumes. Last year she chose Astrid, from How to train your Dragon. I was super excited. Astrid is Sassy, Strong and smart. Just what I want my daughter to be! This is a great costume if you have a daughter and a son to make your dragon!
School is almost over and that means that my teachers get a much deserved vacation. So this year for my teachers I am treating them to a movie night at our local theater. Our local Sam’s Club has discount tickets and movie packages so I grabbed a couple to give my wonderful teachers!
I whipped up this fun movie ticket holder/printable. You can write a quick note and add your tickets or gift card. Just click, print, glue and give!

Over the past two years Kimono jackets have gotten really popular. My first one I bought carried a high price tag. After seeing how simple it was I decided to make a few of my own.

I love Cookies. All kinds. One of my aunts share these Coconut Oatmeal cookies at a family party and I was hooked. They are delicious and semi healthy. I could eat all of them. Here is the yummy recipe I have updated to use coconut oil instead of margarine. It give them a little more coconut flavor and a better texture.
