Aaaaaaaaand................I'm back!

I'm sure I don't have to tell you how badly I feel for neglecting this blog, and my readers, for over 2 months....but I'll tell you anyway!  Life just gets busy, and fortunately for my family, they are my #1 priority.  In the last 2 months, we have sold our home and have been house hunting.  I have been watching ridiculous amounts of HGTV and dreaming of the day when I can make our new house a home.  We haven't found "the one" yet but we are diligently searching.  Selling our home was extremely stressful, and during that time I really didn't have the emotional capacity to be creative.  A few days after we *finally* closed, I whipped out my sewing machine and have been sewing like a mad person!  I have been obsessed with the intentional act of re-purposing clothes.  This obsession was made all the more intense by Make It and Love It's amazing blog!  Here are a few of the creations I have made over the month of September:

Turned PaPa's old dress pants into snazzy trousers for the little man using this tutorial.

Turned an old long sleeve shirt into a capri set using this tutorial.

No pattern or tutorial here - took an old knit shirt and turned it into a cute tunic!

I have also opened an Etsy shop (YAY!) and you can go there to purchase either of these:

Ghost Pillowcase Dress out of men's dress shirt

Glitter Halloween Jumper

 School started mid-August!  I now have a 3rd grader and Kindergartner....they grow up way too fast.

Feels good to be back - get ready for some awesomeness headed your way!

  1. Right there with you in the ignoring blog department ;/ . So, question - if I buy something from your Etsy shop, can you ship to Germany?!?!? xoxo

  2. Um of course I can!! But for you, I would only charge for supplies :-) Send me an email if you really want something and I'll set up a custom listing for ya. Shipping would be around $15-$20.


Thanks for the love!
