Getting Inspired and a Guest Blog Post!

Good morning! I am currently hard at work attempting to finally organize myself. I’m working on getting my garage, or 1/3ish of it anyway, set up to be my sewing studio. I had it in the closet of the spare room/husband’s office, and that just isn’t working out for anyone. So to the three-car (for the family with none to …

Wrap Skirt Tutorial With Pockets

Here’s my first sewing tutorial posted! It’s a really fun to wear wrap skirt with pockets. Super comfy. This isn’t a new thing I just made, however I just finally got everything together and pictures shrunk to web size, so now I can share it with you.

Updating.

I am not a dutiful blogger. Yet. I ignored this site, other than deleting spam comments, for six weeks. But I have some upcoming posts, so I’m cleaning house. Updating software. Changing links. If things are awry and you’re actually visiting my site, I apologize profusely. Things will be normal soon. At least that’s the mantra I keep using in …

Need

I need to sew today. That is all. OK, I’m long winded, so that’s not all. I’ve been desperately needing to sew. I have projects I want to get done, but I’m having trouble getting started.

DIY Creamy Dreamy Lotion

  So, since getting allergic to corn, I have to make more and more things for myself. Corn is seriously in everything! Don’t believe me? See the “good things” that come from corn here! And while my problems with it are more digestion related than a true allergy (I think, anyway), I really just want to get away from the …

Social Media Icons – Legally!

I’ll get to the conclusion of designing my blog shortly, but in the meantime found out I need to change something! When I made my design, I wanted to include cute, themed social icons as links to Facebook, Twitter, and so on. I thought I was really cool when I found out how to do it by CSS alone. I …

About my design!

Crash and burn… I’m not in the swing of blogging yet! I went almost a whole month agonizing about the tutorial I really want to post and how many pictures I have to edit for it instead of just doing it. Well, I did at least write up most of the words… It’s a month later, so I might as …
