Christmas Pillowcases

A fun new item I added this holiday season is Christmas pillowcases. What a great gift for kids on Christmas Eve (or before)! I know my kiddos are enjoying theirs...

I ran a Flash Sale recently on Facebook. Here are several of the scarves that sold. These are always my favorite items to make up for the holidays because they make such great gifts!

Halloween Festivities: Star Wars Family + the Angler Fish

Halloween and the Cubs winning the World Series?! And my parents got a sweet little rescue doggie. This was quite possibly the BEST week ever!!

Just wanted to quickly recap on some Halloween activities we've had going on the past couple weeks. We had a fall family party and attended some fun Halloween events. What a great time of year!

And Now... Another Dog

When you already have one little rescue dog, why not get another?! Ha! At least that's what I told myself when I talked Jeremy into adding another pet to our family recently.

September Sewing Projects

Fall is in the air! Well, not really, with these high 80s temps we are having. Also, this post has nothing to do with fall. It's time for a sewing update! I was just happy to get some fall decor up around the house!

First Day of School

Wow, here we are in our first week of school! Tyson is in 3rd grade and Miles is in 1st grade this year. They switched to a new, bigger school. They fortunately have a couple friends that are going to this school as well. They weren't very nervous to get started... mostly excited!

Summer Activities

Ah, summer time. As a parent, you are trying to balance a schedule (or non-schedule), keeping the kids busy but letting them have down time, monitoring screen time, making sure they are reading and bathing at regular intervals, wearing them out so they sleep at night, taking fun day trips, refereeing, giving them responsibilities (but not TOO many), and feeding them around the clock.

It's fun, isn't it? :-) Hard to believe school starts one month from today.

Texas Road Trip

Last month Jeremy had a work trip to Texas and we decided to go as a family! It is summer vacation, after all. I think we picked the hottest week to go to Texas, of all places. We still had fun and stayed cool. Jeremy was able to do things with us in the evenings and the first and last couple days of the trip, which were weekends.

Biscuit the Cat

We lost our beloved Biscuit yesterday to complications from feline leukemia after a difficult week. He was only 5 years old, and had a place in our hearts as the crazy, easygoing, lovable cat that wandered up to our house almost exactly two years ago. He was a little yellow cat with a big personality (and he didn't stay little for long once he found us!).

End of the School Year

Miles finished Kindergarten and Tyson completed 2nd grade a couple weeks ago! That's hard to believe. They had a really great school year and we are a little bit sad that they'll be leaving their small, early elementary school and moving on to a bigger school in the fall. We had a great three years there!

A Great Evening to Fly

Mother's Day Activities

Another month has passed right on by! Whew... here we are, through the first week of summer vacation already. Wow! I will have some end of the school year pictures to post soon, but for now I'm going back about a month and posting Mother's Day pictures! Better late than never...

May Sewing Update

Thanks to those of you who have taken advantage of the May sale on baby loveys! They are one of my favorite items to design and customize. Don't forget, loveys and stand mixer covers are still on sale through the end of the month.

On to the recent sewing projects!

Southern Family Visit

On the way back from Florida last month, we stopped by Grandpa Jeff and Grandpa Debbie's house for a nice visit. It was good to take a break from driving to stretch our legs, and we had a great time catching up with our "southern" family that we haven't seen in awhile. The boys enjoyed baseball with their cousins, 4-wheeler rides, and plenty of food and goofing around. :-)

Florida Road Trip

Last month we took the boys on a long road trip to Florida! This was our first big road trip since North Carolina almost two years ago. Again, they did surprisingly well in the car (even though I had a #momfail by not bringing enough DVDs).

Our first stop was Destin/Miramar Beach, which took 15 hours of driving in one day. Wowzers! We rolled in pretty late, around 11PM. Tyson and Miles had slept the last couple hours in the car and they revved up once we got checked in to our hotel room. It had bunk beds, which were a huge hit. They actually both slept in the top bunk the first night!

Sewing Adorableness

I have to say, I've REALLY enjoyed sewing lately. Even with the weather turning warm and the yard beckoning me, I really enjoy sitting down at my machine and cranking out adorable orders like these. There have been so many cute fabrics and projects coming across my desk! See for yourself...

Boys' Birthdays + Minecraft Party

Somehow the whole month of April passed me by and I never got any birthday pictures posted! Boo to that. It was a busy month! Both Tyson and Miles have birthdays early in the month and they turned 8 and 6.

I'm late getting this posted, but we had a nice little Easter celebration at our house!

DIY Bathroom Makeover

Well, it's about time I posted about a makeover I completed in Tyson's bathroom upstairs. I'm especially proud of this one because it was done almost entirely by me in DIY fashion, money was saved, and the impact was great! (It's been a few weeks now and I still love comparing the before and after photos.)

All About the Arrows

Arrow prints and designs are quite the rage these days, aren't they? I've done a couple cute hobo bags in this print lately, with similar pillow covers to come.

100th Day of School

The boys just completed their 100th day of school! They celebrated by doing all kinds of activities and snacks that relate to the number 100.

They each brought in collections of 100 items for the school "museum". Tyson chose Pokemon cards and Miles went with Minecraft diamond blocks (or a close representation).

Notable Kid Quotes of 2015

These boys are always cracking us up, and I'm so glad I started recording their notable quotes in a document on my laptop a few years ago. Last year I posted a round-up of funny quotes from 2014, and now I finally got around to compiling favorites from 2015 as well.

Hope these make you laugh, or at least shake your head and smile. Enjoy!

Deer Silhouette Nursery Pieces

I had fun working on these items for a baby boy's nursery. You know, awhile back I wanted to put fake antlers up in our house, but Jeremy just wasn't having it. Sewing up these nursery pieces with deer silhouettes on them was the next best thing! Haha. I hope baby Tate enjoys his soft and cozy items. :-)

Winter Ice Storm + Getting Started in 2016

Last week we had a crazy winter ice storm. Ice coated everything and the wind just howled all day long. We experienced a ton of tree damage, which was unfortunate but pales in comparison to flooded basements, home damage, and long losses of power that many people in our area experienced.

Christmas Recap

We had a fun, relaxing Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Hope you all did too! We have been lounging at home quite a bit this winter break and I'm really enjoying it. However, the kids will be back to school on Tuesday and it will be nice to be in a regular routine again too.

Here are some highlights from our holiday. Christmas Eve was held at my parents' house. We had a delicious meal and really had a nice evening with everyone. My Grandma recently moved in temporarily with my parents, and the house and decorations all looked so cozy.
