This week is CRAZY

I have had such a week, and the next one to come isn’t promising to be much easier. I spent time dyeing lace, only to not have the fabric I ordered arrive in time, so I shifted into plan B, and have made a completely different top for Project Run and Play, so now no…

I’m dying! {photo of the day}

I’m busy trying to multi task today, I’m reading my school work, while dying some lace, (and some other fabric) for my signature look for project run and play……. Hopefully I can find the time to fit it all in! I have mid-terms starting at the end of this month, and Paul is going out…

Turning a Bowl Into a Lampshade

The lamp that inspired my glass shade, is this $199 one from Pottery Barn, I really love the pressed glass fluting, and the shine associated with the mercury glass look. While out estate sale-ing We found a lamp base and a bowl, and decided to see if we could Frankenstein all the pieces together to make…

We have been searching for furniture for Isaac’s room, and although we have settled on several pieces from restoration hardware, I was not sold on…

Lion King Dress Tutorial

I ran out of time to make my own pattern for Project Run and Play this week, but decided that this was the perfect opportunity to show how to take a commercial pattern and make it totally custom. Here is my Lion King Dress… The dress pattern I started with in order to make the lion…

Many Happy Returns of the Day!

Today has never been a day that has stood out to me as the occasion on which a little groundhog decides how much more winter there is; my whole life, today has stood out to me as the birthday of a most singular lady.  When I was a little girl, we could say anything and my mom…
