Weekend Style Blog Tour

Weekend Style Blog Tour

 Happy Friday! I am the last (but hopefully not least) stop on the Sew Caroline Weekend Style Blog Tour! Caroline is one of my favorite sewing friends so I was so excited to check out her new book, Weekend Style. It is filled with casual, comfortable women's clothing patterns as well as bags and accessories. I have about half of the patterns on my to-sew list now! I am obsessed with tanks so I had to add another one to my closet. I sewed up the "Button Up Tank". I love this pattern because it looks really fancy but it's not hard haha! The best kind! Just check out the back... I told you it ...

Big Girl Bedroom

big girl bedroom

I can't believe I'm writing a post about a big girl room! Feels like just yesterday I was posting about a Nursery and now here we are :) A lot of things are the same... gallery wall, most of the same furniture, rug... but yay for a new big girl bed! This bed has a story too! I will save the story for the next post... the one where I write about how we restored the bed :) But trust me it's a good story and the bed is now considered a family heirloom. I had a little trouble with the layout of the new room once the bed was in here. I decided to keep the toy storage and the dresser ...

Playroom Reveal

Playroom Decor

It's finally here! Well... I finished this room back in December but the BLOG POST for the Playroom Reveal is finally here haha, Hooray! We've  played some musical chairs in our house recently. Last fall the boys finally wore us down about bunk beds and Bryan started on those. Then just a few weeks ago Bee climbed out of her crib and got a "big girl room". You know how parenting is... right when you get comfortable in the stage you are in - it changes. The "playroom" in our house is just an extra bedroom (because I use the formal living as my craft room) and they boys share a bedroom. So, ...

Classroom Valentine Ideas

Minted Classroom Valentines

Valentine's Day is such a fun day for my kids. I told them this year they will be WINNING Valentine's Day thanks to Minted! I posted a few weeks ago about how I was so excited to learn that Minted now carries Classroom Valentines so I thought I would share what we picked out! I seriously had a hard time picking just three designs, everything was so cute... thankfully there is next year because it was hard to narrow it down. Of course in 2017 we moms couldn't  just pass out a Valentine's Day Card, could we... hehe :) I think adding a little something extra is fun, mainly because I love a ...

Morton Salt Girl Costume

morton salt girl costume

Costumes are just about my favorite thing to sew, so this past Halloween I dressed Bee up as the Morton Salt Girl (so perfect right?!) Her short blonde "bob" was my inspiration :) Yes I know it is almost February... but better late than never on the blog post right? The costume itself was super simple, it's basically just a yellow dress. I don't like to plan a costume with a lot of moving parts for a two year old because it's just inevitable that she will take it all off and end up looking like nothing. For her yellow dress I used the Lillian Dress Pattern by Mouse House Creations. When I ...
