Siberian Husky Costume

Husky Costume

I love creative people and when I got an interesting Halloween Costume request (again) from my son, I couldn't say no. Remember last year when he asked me to make him a Roach Costume?! Some people were grossed out but I was just excited that he wanted something different... that's my boy! This year he asked me to sew him a Siberian Husky Costume, Hilarious and random!! Of course I had to deliver. The biggest thing was he wanted to still be comfortable because they wear this costume to school (and we live in Texas, hello!) so I also didn't want him melting. I found THIS HAT on amazon and it ...

Today I have a super fun Thanksgiving craft to share with you guys. I can hardy believe that I am typing the word "Thanksgiving"! It's still back-to-school time in my head. I guess I need to catch up... and this craft will help :) I found this kids craft for Mosaic Corn Art on the Imperial Sugar website and fell in love!

Vampire’s Blood White Hot Chocolate

Vampire's Blood White Hot Chocolate

It's mid-October... my favorite time of the year. Apparently I'm not the only one. My son was bouncing off the walls a few days ago and I asked him why he was acting so wild... he said he can't help it because all of this favorite holidays are coming up and he is just so excited :) I don't blame him. We are getting very festive around here, we decorated the mantle, visited the pumpkin patch and have started watching Halloween Movies! When I came across this recipe for Vampire's Blood White Hot Chocolate from Imperial Sugar I knew I had to make some! I love to browse Imperial Sugar's site ...

Swan Wings + Hello Ollie Fabrics

Hi Guys! Welcome to day 2 of the Hello Ollie Fabrics Blog Tour! I'm so excited to finally share the Swan Wings that I made earlier this year. Last spring Bonnie Christine asked me if I would make something for her booth at Quilt Market for her newest fabric line, Hello Ollie for Art Gallery Fabrics. I was so honored because I am a huge fan of Bonnie's work... and how cool is it to have a project at Quilt Market?! Bonnie's new line is gorgeous and ethereal. Being named after Bonnie's daughter, Ollie, sweetness is brought to life with dabbling swans, feathered fellows and garden blooms. ...
