Nautical Baby Shower for Yaya

December 9, 2013

I mentioned that last month I happened to host a lot of fun parties – and I did! This was a such a fun time for me because I used to plan events all the time as a minister and I enjoy watching something come together. I also loved being able to be in a […]

Tutorial: Recovering a Lampshade

September 16, 2012

My grandmother likes projects. I think I get it from her. She’s constantly redecorating her house, and lately she’s been tired of the red bedroom she has and she has recently opted for a black and white theme. It’s very Parisian.  I also inherited another thing from her — never pay full price for anything, […]

Tutorial Tuesdays and a few random thoughts

June 6, 2011

It’s summer. Well, sort of.  Summer doesn’t officially start until June 21, but we typically think of summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day… I digress. Like I said, it’s summer. I made a decision today about Tutorial Tuesdays. Because it is summer, I am spending a lot more time outside the house – working […]

Tutorial Tuesday – Wipes Case Tutorial

May 31, 2011

Finally, a Tutorial Tuesday! Actually, this one was kind of an accident.  I’ve been making these for almost 2 years now, and I don’t necessarily consider them part of my “tutorial” qualifications, because my Tutorial Tuesdays are designed to force me to learn something new and then share it with you. However, I am so […]

May 17, 2011

What? Two Tutorial Tuesdays in a row … and NOTHING?! Yep. My bad. Forgive me. I’ve been out of town for the majority of the last two weeks and I haven’t been in a place where I could do anything crafty or take pictures of it. I do have plans to show you how I […]

Tutorial Tuesday (on Wednesday) – Lined Pillowcase Dress

May 4, 2011

Yeah… I couldn’t get to posting this yesterday.  That’s what I get for not making myself write this last week. I spent a long amount of time online last week looking at pillowcase dresses. I knew the basic concept: square of fabric, cut arm holes, make casing for elastic/ribbon, finish. I made one when munchkin […]

April 19, 2011

For my birthday, I got the present I’ve been wanting for 5 years. A fancy/new camera! (Good things come to those who wait!) Of course, as soon as I got it I wanted a cute camera strap to make it all pretty. Originally I was just going to cut some fabric and cover it, but […]

Tutorial Tuesday – Coffee Cozy

April 12, 2011

This is a Tutorial Tuesday after a very disappointing first effort. Oh well. Mistakes happen, right? My first effort was to make one of my shirts into a dress, based on Make it and Love it’s Tutorial.  Super cute. Epic. Fail. I even managed to sew THROUGH my finger. Ouch. Although, I will attempt that […]
