Custom Boppy Pillow Cover

I am super proud of this boppy pillow cover, probably more than I should admit, but I think it turned out awesome and I am getting much better at my sewing techniques-the ones I used here are sewing on a curve, adding piping, pocket making and zipper installation!

Mustache Baby Onsie

One of my best friends is pregnant and is due soon. I couldn't make it to the shower since she lives in LA and I was just there not too long ago. I already took her a shower gift when I went, but just had to make her a few more things for her little guy!.

Leaf cookies

I made these leaf cookies as place settings for our Thanksgiving Table. I used Cookie Crazie's Chocolate Cut out cookie recipe which uses BLACK COCOA POWDER!

Once a Month Meal Prep

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!

Car organization

I purchase a car kick mat to prevent the back of my car from getting destroyed by little feet kicking at it but after using it for a while realized what I really needed was a back of the seat car organizer.

Covered Button Earrings/Pins

Aren't these adorable?!!
I made some fabric covered push pins with a kit I purchased over a store on Etsy called Everythingribbon I have also purchased suspender clips there for the bib clips I made and pacifier clips.

A word of warning: double check what size of button you are making and make sure you purchase the correct assembly tool.

Flower chandelier

This is the "mobile"/chandelier that hangs above Karsyn's bed.

It is a wicker wreath wrapped lightly in tulle. I then poked fake cherry blossems into it. The butterflys are  fabric butterfly shapes (2 pieces of fabric and fusable interfacing) then pinch in the center of the butterfly and wrap fishing line around tightly about 10 times and tie it off, leave a long trailing piece to tie onto the wreath.

Tooth Pillows

I made a bunch of these cute tooth pillows a while back and never got around to bloging about them. I used a soft plush felt and cut out a tooth shape then hand appliqued a bird and flower on the front (the tooth goes in the small pouch at the top of the pillow) and a cute mushroom on the back,
the one above was for Karsyn.

Large Pinwheel Favors

Aren't these the cutest Pinwheels? I gave these out at Karsyn's party. I used 1/8" dowels and the sticks you use to make rock candy (no I didn't eat a bunch of rock candy) I purchased them at a candy making wholesaler.

Pullstring Pinata

Back in October for Karsyn's birthday party, I made a pullstring pinata for the kids as an activity. I first saw this fabulous tutorial over at Young House Love on how to make a pullstring pinata which is great for little kids that can't control a bat let alone swing it and not hit everything/everyone in sight. And this tutorial on making crape paper roses over at House of Smith

Pinwheel Door Wreath

I reused the door wreath from my sisters shower (seen here) and added some of the little pinwheels I made for the favor bags by tacking them on with a few stitches. I reused the yellow flowers to make Karsyn a hair band (and I wear it too)


My daughter loves her blankie (AKA: her woobie) she is a little Linus for sure some days. My husband committed an boo-boo and forgot it at the daycare person's house and boy did we have a melt down. Lesson learned, but from that experience I decided to make her a few more woobies out of the same material (a soft minkie type material) I also made a second one for a baby shower gift.


This is Karsyn's Dollhouse.

This is her dollhouse on her new table! Isn't it cute?!
My dad built the dollhouse for Karsyn before he died and had started to build the furniture but didn't finish so John and I have been slowly putting the pieces together and gathering items to put in her dollhouse. Now she has discovered it and is so imaginative with it. I found a line of dolls (Calico Critters) that were really adorable and she choose the kitty family. She feeds them dinner and has them go swimming and puts them to bed and gives them kisses, adorable.

Lemon Cookies

I made these cute little lemon, orange and lime cookies for a friend's daughter's birthday. She wanted lemon cookies but didn't have a shape in mind so I figured why not make lemon cookies that look like lemons?!!  They aren't perfect but this was a bit of a rush job.  I used the royal icing recipe I have used in the past and colored them yellow, green, orange and white.

Goldfish costume

Karsyn's Halloween Costume was homemade this year, and she was the only Koi fish/goldfish on the block. I first saw this costume in a magazine (can't remember which one) and thought it was adorable as well as comfy and warm.

Chocolate Chili Cupcakes

I tried out a new recipe, kind of scary but actually really good. They weren't too spicy but gave you a little heat at the end on your tongue/throat (I did warn people they were chili cupcakes before hand)

Crab Cookies

These cookies were so yummy, I used Sugarbakers Roll Out Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe  It works wonderfully and you can cut out any shape you want (although stainless steel/metal cookie cutters work much better than plastic at getting through the chocolate chips)

Baby snowboard hat

My friend Brie is expecting in January and although she lives in California I figured her bambino could use a cute little snowboard hat for the chill winter evenings. I made this a knitting circle loom like this
Created a brim and then sewed the top closed with a flat seem. I made the little tassels and tied them onto the corners. 

Wine Tags

A few years ago my friend told me about when she was born her dad (who is in the wine industry) purchased 3 very nice bottles of wine and saved them to drink when she
1) Graduated from High School
2) Graduated from College
3) Got Married

Decorative Pillows

I went through my linen closet and found about 4 extra decorative pillows that weren't being used and so I recovered them with some fabric to go with the bedding I am currently using on 2 different beds.

Pumpkin/Ghost Cupcakes & the best Chili recipe!!!

For Halloween yesterday Karsyn and I made Ghost and Pumpkin cupcakes (which we gave to our friends) and Chili for dinner,  which is a fabulous recipe. I found it in a Low-Carb cooking magazine *(but add kidney and white beans so it technically isn't low carb after that) and it is really easy to make just throw everything into the crockpot and let it cook!

Cheap Toddler game

Karsyn was bored one night so I broke out a clean butter tub, some scissors and puff about an entertained toddler for about an hour and a half.

First it was all of them, then we did each color at a time, then counting....endless fun.
