2017 - A Year Review

I cannot believe that I've been blogging for 5 years now! Where has the time gone??
This year has been crazy for many reasons, but so many good things happened in it! So here is my "2017 year review"!


Once Upon a Pixel Blog Tour

*This post was sponsored by Sugaridoo and Studio Koekoek but all thoughts and opinions are my own!

I love books. I may honestly have a slight book hoarding tendency (NOT a hoarding "problem", you can never have too many books!) So when Irene from Sugaridoo asked if anyone would like to be on this blog tour I jumped at the chance! It has so many fun projects and with my kids being really crafty as well, I knew it would be a book that would get a ton of love!
I'm also giving away one copy of the e-book so make sure you enter the rafflecopter!


Purrrfect Patch Quilt Block

I don't know about you, but it's that time of year where everything just seems like chaos and you are dying for Daylight savings for that blissful hour you get to sleep in. Yeah....that's what my extra hour is dedicated to. Obviously, that puts my mind right at snuggly blankets and fluffy pillows. So of course doing a free Quilt Block was totally called for.


Cricut Half Hexi Quilt

I started sewing when my oldest was a baby. I had told my mother that I wanted to sew baby blankets and one day she randomly showed up with a sewing machine that I could "borrow" until the day she had the desire to sew. Strangely that day still has not come....
For the next 9 years I mostly sewed blankets and crib sets. I would sell custom sets to friends and friends of friends, and I also sold on Ebay. Then I started getting more into clothing and stepped away from quilts. Crazily, the last quilt I made was 5 years ago!


Back to School

*The patterns for this post was sponsored by Jilly Atlanta, but all thoughts and opinions are my own!

Growing up I always loved the beginning of school. Mostly because I got new clothes and shoes along with new notebooks and pencils. Maybe I'm weird, but I still love brand new notebooks. They're so full of possibility! And lets face it, I am weird. I wear that badge proudly.
Back to school is a little different with my kids. Instead of heading to the mall (or second hand shop like I did as a kid), we go through fabrics and patterns online. My kids are becoming pretty well versed with what the different types of fabrics are called along with different styles. I love hearing what they want and actually being able to deliver it!



I love when Halloween rolls around. The season, the colors, the fun "thrills". There's just so many fun elements of Halloween.
My kids love all things scary. Aevarie especially LOVES to tell ghost stories and it's always fun to make something for them, so today I'm sharing this Halloween Ghosties shirt.


A Little Luna

I was 13 when the first Harry Potter book was published. My mother had gone to England to visit her family and brought it back for us and well, that was that! I had no idea that that little book was the beginning of something so big, but I'm really not surprised!


Project Run & Play Mini Series

I'm going to be completely up front with you. This post is going to contain an insane amount of pictures. Now that you've been properly warned, we can get into all the fun details of these PR&P Mini All Star Season looks!


Women's Ollie Bomber Jacket

I'm going to be on a small "me" kick for a little bit. When I went to the Cricut Make-a-thon I made all my shirts and a pair of leggings (which I didn't end up wearing there but will be sharing!) that I wore there and now I really need to share them all on the blog!
But first up is this awesome Women's Ollie Bomber Jacket!


Free Lemon Grass Tank Top

My girls favorite things to wear are Tank Tops. They wear them during the summer. They wear them under shirts during winter, and they love wearing them as pj's to bed. So I figured it's about time I made a pattern for them! Also since my girls are all getting older, this pattern is for the older girls!!
You can grab the pattern and tutorial over at Crazy Little Projects!
