Gosh, it's been a while since I've posted on this blog! Busy with summer I guess.  Here are some pictures of a few things I've made the last few months.  With kids back in school, my schedule has a bit more structure and I'm ready to start sewing regularly again.  
Christmas stockings will soon be appearing in my shop!

refinishing a table

This past weekend, I took this sorry table and chairs, 

Sanded it like crazy,

Gave it a new coat of paint,

And turned it into this:

Here it is with one of my table toppers on it that I made years ago. It has been washed nearly weekly for a good 2-3 years and still looks great!

It's SO much happier to look that now!

custom ipad cover

I was thrilled to be contacted by a friend of a friend to make an iPad cover.  I've been wanting to add fabric flowers to my covers for a while now, so I was happy to have this opportunity to try it out. 
I love, love how it turned out!

You can expect to see more of this type of cover coming soon!

NEW ITEM - Tooth Fairy Pillows

Here are a few of the first round of Tooth fairy pillows! Fully padded with my favorite soft interfacing, and stuffed with a non-allergenic batting.  Edges have some texture to them, and a spacious pocket on the front. 
Help your kids celebrate their lost teeth!

Don't worry...I have more BOY themed pillows cut out and ready to go too!  Go HERE to check them out!

Bathroom Makeover

I've been wanted to re-do our second bathroom for quite some time now. So over time I gathered some items that I loved and this past weekend put them all together.  


 And AFTER! I LOVE this shower curtain!

Is it weird that I want to hang out in my bathroom just to be closer to these gorgeous ruffles?!

What do you think?

bridesmaids pouches

I've done quite a few set of bridesmaid's pouches in the past and I love to do them! This bride's colors were teal and gray and I was lucky enough to make each of the 14 bridesmaids a boxy pouch for the bride to fill with other goodies.  She was a dream to work with!
I love being able to work with the bride and making pouches that are just her color and style.

pictures...a work in progress

So a few months ago my husband surprised me with an early Christmas present and got me a new camera. A Nikon D3100 and I love it. I'm still learning how to best use it, but it is just incredible.
The first two pictures are from before with my old camera...and they are not too bad....well, considering. 

These photos below are with my new camera and I love how it's able to capture such a sharp and clear image.  It's been fun to try to angles and lighting to hopefully improve my pictures and the overall look of my shops.

Now, if I can just do something about my little one stealing one of my backdrops and running away!

Glow Gift

I thought I'd make another mention of the great site Glow Gift that I have been sewing items for! Can you see which items are mine? :) They have selected great items to go together into gift baskets. They'll personalize each box, write a note, and send it wherever you'd like! I've had the privilege of meeting and working with both the owners and they are so talented, kind, and amazing. Keep Glow Gift in mind!

Another treasury!

I'm flattered to be in another treasury! (Don't worry, I won't be posting about every one I'm in.)  I thought it was funny that the same color was used a theme! Different item for me this time though. This time it's one of my luggage tags in Aqua Chevron. I love that pattern and I LOVE this color!
Great items in here!

You Are Aqua On My Mind
