Happy Spring everyone~ I have had a weird little bug that has kept me feeling a little under the weather! I am taking a little break from major sewing projects, but I am starting on my spring/summer goodies for the Farmers Market (starts in June) I had to share the new tee's I am working on! Sooo cute, I am making one for myself! I also added a new spring bird tote to my shop! Check it out! It is a really yucky rainy day here, I hope the sun comes back so I can take some pics of my goodies outside! The lighting in my house is terrible! HAPPY SPRING!

I have to admit ... I love holidays! My Mom used to decorate for all of the different holidays and I well.... have taken on that with my own children. I sometimes go a little over the top~ especially at christmas and valentines day! I think the kids really like it and it makes our house so happy :) LOL! I have decided to take a sewing break (well for today anyway) I worked on a few lil' projects for myself... The cute table runner,(That I must admit, I am pretty proud of) I made myself a new keychain(my old one has seen better days~ the new one has a gnome and some funky green fabrics (oooh maybe you will see some keychains pop up at my shows :) On my list of things to do...... New curtains and shams for our bedroom, A curtain to go over the toy shelf in the family room ... A pillow with some of Jada & Max's art work & some handmade easter gifts!Whew, better get started!

The weather was beautiful this weekend (minus all the melting snow~ which has made our lovely back yard into a small lake) The weather was warm enough to not buddle the kids up, no heavy jackets,boots ect. I kind of like it :) No I loooove it! Lol! Sunday I made my way to the fabric store (by myself ;) and picked up some lovely spring fabric, with flowers, puppies, bunnies and all! The fabric will soon be spring layered skirts and some are already cute lil' ponytail holders(on cute egg shaped cards~ ready for easter) soon to be in my shop. Spring is really in the air~ can't wait! Happy Monday!

I recently finished a custom order that sparked some inspiration! I have had this pattern for awhile and just didn't like it the way it was~ well, I worked with it a bit and changed it and VOILA :) The vintage inspired smock was created! I am still workin' on the sizing~ but the first two came out adorable and are in my etsy shop! Spring is on the way (even with two feet of snow! Lol!) New gauchos and sweet bird bags are in the works! Keep checkin' back for updates!

I love my Tuesday and Thursday thrifting adventures~ I get 4 whole hours to myself each week, while Max is in preschool! The little breaks I get are much appreciated :) I picked up Max today to find hime covered in colored spots! too cute~ they have a class pet (stuffed dog) and his name is Spots~ I guess they all got to close and his spots jumped right off onto the children! Lol! Max attends a christian preschool, that we have grown to love, Jada went there for two years and still talks about it! Tomorrow is Dr. Suess's birthday and the kids have been talking about him at school~ what would we do with out Dr. Suess books :) They make me smile & so do these really cool treasures I found today! beautiful vintage fabric, buttons (check out the ones with the anchors ) a cute vintage pitcher~ that has the best orange cover! I also found this awesome set of vintage dishes! The entire set was marked down to $3.95 can you believe it! I have been working on some new smock tops (inspired by a vintage pattern) I just finished a custom order so check out my etsy shop, I will list some soon!
