Hello! Happy 2017 to you, lovely readers! I’ve been neglecting this blog BUT (if you’ve been following me on Instagram) you’ll know that I’ve actually been quite busy MAKING!
How to make your own boyfriend jeans from an existing pair!
Hello! I’ve been MIA from the blog world for a very long time. Sorry about that. Several things… Firstly, I made the switch from Blogger to WordPress. Please bear with me if there are any glitches. Secondly, we welcomed our Little Dude at the end of June. So I’ve been pretty busy. Thirdly, the […]
I try to get out for a walk at least once a day. I find if I don’t have fresh air I get headaches and don’t sleep as well at night. Plus I think it’s good for kids to be outdoors. Normally I walk along the creekside trail near our house but it was closed […]
I’ve been wanting to update our bedroom for awhile now. We are renters so can’t make too many changes to the room itself (apart from hanging some art), but our furniture is fair game.

So far 2011 seems to be rather productive on the sewing / DIY side of things… Probably this stems from the fact that I only work part-time AND don’t have cable AND it is cold and snowy outside… Which leaves plenty of time for indoor sewing and crafty projects. I whipped up a beachy tunic […]
