3 Minute Newborn Headband Tutorial

You all know that I love quick and easy projects, but I also love pretty.  Ever since Riley's hair grew back in as a baby {yep, she was a baldy}, I've always had a bow of some sort in her hair.  For some reason I never tried headbands with Riley though.  It was most likely because the child never stayed still long enough for a headband to remain in ...


Autumn Apple Flag

When I think of Fall I immediately think of Apple Picking.  I love everything about picking apples, especially the sweets afterwards of course!  I decided this year I would bring the Autumn apples to our house.  I created an adorable Autumn Apple Flag that is so simple to put together.  Plus, I'm going to give you the design so you'll be able to print it out for yourself!

Bumble Bee Tutu

I have no issues openly admitting that I am not the least bit able to sew.  I can barely thread a needle and the buttons I sew back on last about a week.  I decided though that I wanted to create Riley’s Halloween costume this year.  This is Riley’s 3rd Halloween.  I spent at least 40 dollars on her costumes for the past two years.  Riley was 10 months and …continue reading


No Sew Lamp Shade Redo

I’m not quite sure what inspired me to want to redo the lamp shade in our bedroom and turn it into a no sew lamp shade.  It very well could have been that I just got sick of seeing the hole through the shade.  Every time I turned the hole to face the wall it always seemed to get turned around back towards the front as if it was taunting me.  …continue reading
