Hi Everyone! Sorry I have been MIA as of late....I have been knee deep in Etsy orders! I am so thankful for all of my customers, and the orders coming in have just been awesome. And because of you I officially passed 50 Etsy sales! Woo-hoo!

So, since I've busy sewing (and doing the happy dance!) "Sew Something New Friday" will continue this Friday! Please join me in creating something new and feel free to share it here! I'd love to see what fun things you're making!

Feel the Love

Available in my shop soon!
Happy Valentine's Day!!

New Favorite Store

I stumbled upon a new favorite Etsy shop today! I knew as soon as I saw Bedlam Country Crafts that I was going to love their stuff. There's something about wooden signs that I just love! Here are a few of my favorites from their shop (Link above pic to go to that sign!):

I love this one!! So true for me and my hubby!!

If one day I ever have a sewing room, I'd love to have this hanging in there...

I laughed so hard when I saw this one!!

These were just a few of my favorites! There are so many more!
You'll just have to go check out Bedlam Country Crafts for yourself!

Sew Something New Friday - Bows, bows everywhere!!

Sew Something New Friday

It's sew something new Friday!

Lately, my daughter's bows and clips have seemed to take over the house! Now she doesn't have that many, but it seems like they end up everywhere. The problem is that they have never really had a "home". I've tried storing them in different places, but none of them seemed to work. Then I discovered bow holders and I knew that was the answer for all of our stray bows and clips! I wanted to buy one....and I actually came really close, but the budget just said, "no". Of course my next thought was, "Why can't I make one with materials I have at home?" So that's what I did!

Samantha's new bow holder:

Did you sew something new this week? Either comment here or go to my facebook page and share what you've done! I'd love to see it!

Sew Something New Friday - Got Plastic Bags?

Sew Something New Friday

For the next two weeks, my Sew Something New projects will be focusing on solutions to problems around the house.

This week's problem? Plastic bags on the floor.

Most of the time I do my best to use reusable bags (a possible upcoming project), however, sometimes I forget my reusable bags and I have to use plastic. The majority of the plastic bags I save and put in the recycling bin when I head back to the store, but some of them I save to use as liners for our small trashcans or if I need to donate something small (like for our can food drive this Sunday at church). Anyway, the bags I save normally end up stuffed into one plastic bag, which has almost always resided in the floor of the laundry room or pantry. Not anymore!!

The solution?
A plastic bag holder.
