STYLO 4 – half of the details

IMGP7617_1 copy

    It took me longer than I would have liked to get around to the details on my Stylo looks, but we went on a truly great family vacation. Way better than typing on a geriatric, possessed computer that likes to flash pixelated squares and restart whenever it feels compelled to make me crazy…..anyway. […]

To make up for all the many days and weeks of neglect on my blog, I’m now going to make up for it by offering up a doozy. Way way back in the day, STYLO magazine made its debut, and I had the crazy luck to land a spot in it, after having replied to […]

Kids Clothes Week – Mini Hudsons

Processed with VSCOcam with a9 preset

Normally the shady, poorly lit and executed kids clothes week pictures can be explained by the intense sewing schedule and hastily photographed items. But my hastily photographed item has no other excuse other than its maker’s lack of motivation to do any major struggling with little models. Unfortunately, this super relaxed shoot still had its […]

Kids clothes week – knit sweater

Processed with VSCOcam with f3 preset

Kids clothes week happened years ago in blogtime, but I was lost in a bit of a hole during it. Nevertheless, I did manage to make one thing. This great little knit sweater for Clover. As a brief aside from the actual sewing, I just want to say that I feel kind of cheated out […]

Through the lenses

Processed with VSCOcam with a7 preset

As I started to explain in my last post, these past few weeks have been a strange and scary time for me as I deal with issues with fear and anxiety, but also positive in some ways. There’s growth happening. I’ve faced a lot of fears and tried to make improvements in my spiritual life, […]

Easter dresses, shirts, and scares etc

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Easter was weird. I’ll just start with that. We started off normal, feeling positive and excited. Little easter baskets left out for the kids, fresh clothes to wear to church. (I’ll round up all the info on the patterns/fabric at the bottom of the post) Hawthorne couldn’t stop taking over the world with his cuteness […]

Small World Blog Tour

IMGP7665

Hey guys! I’m popping up to the surface to write a blog post! As a fan of a soft corduroy, I was pretty excited about the release of Small World by Cloud9 organics. And the only thing better than adorable Organic corduroy, is free adorable organic corduroy. My friend Rae (aka Made By Rae) actually […]

Around Here

Processed with VSCOcam with k2 preset

There’s a part of me that really needs/wants to use my blog as a writing outlet once a week. Just to purge some thoughts and see our week in retrospect. But I never seem to get around to it. Writing a blog post and dealing with technology can be time consuming and tedious, and in […]

Pretty Birds Book review and giveaway

Processed with VSCOcam with f3 preset

    You could say that we’re “bird people” around here. I’ve got this thing for Charley Harper and all of his bird art, and I’ve been putting nature in front of my kids to feast on as they see fit. Up above, my daughter is perusing a set of Sibley backyard bird cards to […]

Fancy mint and cream Birthday party dress

birthday dress - girl like the sea

Someone is feeling the fancy vibes pretty hard. I sewed up this super fancy mint and cream birthday dress for my newly 6 year old girl, and it even has a zip and a silk bodice. Totally legit, right? (fabric and dress pattern details will be rounded up at the end of the post) A […]
