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!
Patriotic based holidays have always been a favorite around my house. Firecrackers, red, white and blue, stars anything patriotic, really. So when decorating my house I pull out all the stops. I love vintages items, bright and sparkly and a whole lot of red, white and blue. So for today’s tutorial I am pulling out all the sparkle and color I can. These Firecrackers are perfect for a mantle, piano top, shelf or table centerpiece.

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. They are so fun to wear with a skirt, dress up jeans or capris or use with a bathing suit on the beach! This simple 30 minute tutorial will have you ready for the summer in no time!
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.
Last summer I taught sewing classes to some girls in my neighborhood. One of the projects was a simple cross body bag they could use to go to the mall or carry on vacation. The girls sewed them up in about 2 hours. A perfect project for a new seamstress. To make it a little more personal I love to add embellishments to make it my own. Buttons, fringe, ribbon whatever you want. I made this tutorial for the Ribbon Retreat, my favorite place to buy all of my embellishments!
The Eiffel Tower has always been a favorite of mine. So when my daughter became obsessed with it I decided to indulge her a bit. I thought a pillow for her bed would be cute. I looked for one I loved but didn’t find one in my budget. I decide to just make one with supplies I had at my home. The pattern is simple to stitch and only requires some fabric, thread and a little sewing ability.
This past February my Little Miss decided she wanted to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Since I only have one daughter, her life is go big or go home. I enjoy the little things I get to do with her that just isn’t the same with boys. Like blessing days, baptism days, prom and wedding days. Just to name a few. So when her baptism was coming up I just had to make her dress. I love how it turned out.
