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…

Knock Off Anthropologie Layered V-neck

Have you entered my awesome Birthday Giveaway yet? If not, hop on over and throw your hat into the ring! Today I have sort of a quick and dirty post, (that isn’t a full tutorial,) but it does show how I altered an existing pattern, to make a knock off shirt from Anthropologie. Anthropologie has…

How’s it going?

I keep putting off posting anything new, a. because I don’t want to overwhelm poor Paul while he is fiddling with the new design, and b. because I am currently still a little intimidated by the new WP format and figuring out how to do a post with pictures and links etc. so sorry if…
