Back to School

I find parenting such an interesting mix of penalty/pity, love/loss. The kids went back to school today, after a year at home with me; we had lots of reasons for home schooling them for the year, and lots of reasons went into the decision to send them back this year (by in large Isaac asking…

I’m Assuaging My Guilt…

I’m just popping in today to assuage my guilt over not posting recently. I have no really good reason to be over here beyond that to be honest 🙂 I have been making a bunch of stuff, but because of my usual poor planning, I have no good pictures to share (my instagram is usually…

Emmie’s 11th Birthday {flashback post}

The other day I shared a post about Emmie’s small and understated 12th birthday party, and today I am back with her 11th birthday (I am so behind on posts….) Emmie decided that she wanted to have a circus theme for her party, and we tried really hard to thread the theme throughout within the…

Emmie Turns 12!

My baby girl is not so baby anymore, she turned 12 on the 11th of June! We went to Japan a few days before to celebrate her birthday as a family, but she still wanted to have a little get together with friends to mark the occasion. We did a huge party for her 11th,…

Breeze Top Pattern Tour

I’m excited to be on the Breeze Top pattern tour; I first “met” Shannon of Little Kids Grow through Project Run and Play’s sew-a-longs and have always been impressed by her style, and love of her family – so I was really excited when she contacted me about participating in introducing her new pattern for Peaches…

Family Photos 2014

We just had our family photos taken, by a family friend (and awesome photographer) Christa Elza and it has been so fun to see the kids through someone else’s lens (I take so many pictures of them for clothing posts, but the pictures are rarely OF them so much as the clothes.) I just love the pictures, and…

A Shibori Table Runner

I have been MIA over here (shocking I know) but that never means I haven’t been making stuff, just that I have been a bad blogger. I have been doing some sewing for a guest post, some sewing for Emmie’s fall back to school wardrobe, and even some for myself. I have several patterns and…

Charley is 8 Months Old

    So, I know this isn’t a crafting/sewing post, but I wanted to share it here anyway!  If you follow me on fb than you already know that my sister Sarah, and Paul arranged for Sarah and Charley to fly into town to visit me as a surprise (the kids were hecka surprised too!)…

Guest Post {Project Run And Play}

I’m over at Project Run and Play today sharing a dress I made, and a shoe knock off tutorial, for liZ and Elizabeth’s Flashback May series. I am going to be uploading the bodice pattern for the dress here, as soon as I can get Paul to digitize it for me (it will only be…
