Today {a Mom-day post}

I hope you don’t mind that I’m not a posting ninja over here recently.  It seems like life is just about all I can manage from day to day- forget about extras like blogging and showering.  Too much work if you ask me. 🙂I’m hoping it’s the pregnancy, but even if it is, it doesn’t bode well for me, since after pregnancy comes a newborn.  And newborns and sleep don’t really go together, and I don’t do well with no…

Pillow Talk

I can honestly say that the “bat” pillow is the first real throw pillow I have ever made. I didn’t have a lot of throw pillows, because, honestly, they’re just one more thing the kids can throw around. But, I have become enamored with the art of the throw pillow. They are small, simple (relatively) sewing projects that don’t take a considerable amout of time to complete (mostly). When my friend commissioned me to make some pillows for her daughter’s…

Personal Progress Packets

This is a project I have been working on for my mom. She is in the stake young women presidency in her area, but she was only recently released as the young women president in her ward. While she was president, one of the advisers started making these packets for the new beehives coming in. It holds all their personal progress books as well as True to the Faith and For the Strength of Youth. She wanted me to make…

bridal shower thank you cards

We just had a bridal shower for my cousin who is getting married next week. (Yay!) She asked me to make some thank you cards for her to give to the guests. I used the rolled paper flower tutorial over on Little Birdie Secrets (I love all their video flower tutorials!) These cards are beautiful, but will probably need to be hand delivered to avoid extra postage. (that’s what she planned on doing anyway- which is why I made them…

custom paper

I have a calling in church where I teach music to all the children ages 4-11. I love my job and try to make it as fun and interesting as I can. When I needed a game to play to encourage participation and to help us review the many songs we have been learning, I turned to Stanley the Singing Bee. Stanley loves music and he is especially attracted to these special “song” flowers. When the music is sung really…

Embellished notebooks

I love shopping for school supplies. It’s a crazy obsession that I have and one that drives my husband crazy. How many unopened boxes of crayons does one woman need anyway? But as much as I love school supplies, I can’t justify spending $1.50 for a notebook, just because it has a design on the cover, when I can pick up a plain one for $.15. So I bought a ton of these notebooks, and told my daughter and niece…

Kids’ Rooms

I have been trying to update the kids’ rooms lately. I don’t have money to spend, but I sure do have a lot of craft supplies, so I have been trying to figure out what we can do with them to freshen up their spaces.The boys’ room really needed some curtains! I got the basketball fabric donated to me, and the orange fabric is from my sister (THANK YOU!) It has made a huge difference in the temperature in their…

New Tote

My neighbor asked me to make a tote for her daughter to give as a gift. She brought me the fabric she wanted me to use- I LOVE IT! I think I might have to go buy some for myself. I love having the black on the bottom to keep the white background from showing too much dirt. And I love the hot pink inside!…

Calendar Re-do

BEFORE I wasn’t happy with the way the numbers looked, and I was kind of over the colors in my earlier version of the calendar, so I decided to re-do the magnets to lighten it up a little bit. I found these awesome glass tiles on etsy (I don’t remember where, but if you really want me to find out I’m sure I can.)(sorry about the pics, it’s hard to get rid of the glare on the metal) I love…

Custom Cards

There is nothing quite like making a custom order for someone. It’s nice that the item you’re making is already sold, but there is always the worry that what you’re thinking and what they’re thinking aren’t the same thing. I still like how they turned out, and I think they liked them too.…
