Shop Update

I have been meaning to get this posted for nearly a week now.  I have been having issues with my newest computer.  At any rate, I made a selection of pencil pouches and listed them in my etsy shop. 

I have them available in 7 different colors (or you may request a custom color): red, orange, yellow, lime green, teal, turquoise, and royal blue.  They are approximately 8 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep.
Since I have been into all things planner/stationery- and art-related lately, I felt it was only right to make some bags to fit my mood.  I have few other things that I am working on as well.


Hi Lovelies + Free Design

Hi all! I know it has been an awfully long time since I've posted, about a year and a half.  There have been quite a few reasons that I haven't posted.  I won't go into detail at the moment but primarily schoolwork and my job has kept me extremely occupied even with my home life, and I anticipate the upcoming fall semester will have no shortage of busyness.  So while I have a bit of free time to post, I am going to try to take advantage of it.  But you all didn't come here to hear me ramble I know!

It seems like every time I get onto Instagram or Pinterest I come across something cute related to pineapples.  I have been into digitizing embroidery lately, so I decided to join in on the fun.  This morning I made this pineapple buttonhole design and am now sharing it with you sweeties.


Merry Christmas!

Oh my goodness!! This has been quite a few past months.  I have been so busy with school that I have barely had any time for much else.  I am so glad the semester is over, and I have a few weeks break before going back.

Let me just say how I have MISSED you all and blogging. I didn't expect to stray away for so long.  Unfortunately, to cram as much school work in as possible I have to be a tad bit more disciplined toward it.

Are you all ready for Christmas? I can't believe that it is almost here.  Seriously, only a day away!! I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be.

So I have been working a few items for after the holidays.  I didn't get it ready in time for Christmas, but I think this break between semesters is a great time to catch up on my designing and sewing.  My sewing mood changes a little too quite frequently and honestly it drives me nuts and so I have to do things when the mood strikes me.  So lately I have been dabbling in all sorts of things.  But the most recent endeavors has included lots and lots of felt....


Another One: Sewing Plans {Printable}

I really haven't had a heap of time to sit down at my sewing machine lately.  Instead I have been constantly on my computer typing and studying.  So that leaves lots of time to make documents that are sewing-related, right? Right!



Where Have I Been + Free Printable

Hi, lovelies!  Oh my!!! It's been such an awfully long time since I've had time to blog.  I've wanted to, trust me.  I started back classes this fall at Auburn University after being out of school for 2 long years, and boy! is it an adjustment.  This college is so much bigger than the one I attended last.  With that being said, I haven't had much time to really do anything that I like concerning crafting or blogging because I'm usually always studying.

I have a textile class that I am in love with.  I had a project in there that dealt with making a swatch kit, and it got me to thinking about fabric organization (and how I really need to do some!)  Then I thought about how for years I had been wanting to do a fabric organization binder myself.  Obviously, I never got around to it.  Anyway, I sat down and created a fabric swatch sheet printable and I wanted to offer it.  It's away to say that I'm sorry that I've been gone for so long and that I really do miss you!!

It's nothing very special, and I'm sure there are tons out there that look much better than what I can offer.  However, this is something that I've really been wanting to do, and so here it is!

It features three places for swatches with fields like Fabric/Design Name, Content, Amount, and Notes.  The swatch square is approximately 2" by 2".  There is also an "Ideas" section at the bottom, in case you like to group together fabrics that are similar in colors or styles.

Download the pdf file here.  Simply print it on regular paper or cardstock, attach either a scrap of fabric or a photo of the fabric, and add your info.

I hope you enjoy! Let me know if this works for you. And...please send pictures if you use it to lani5287@yahoo.com.  Hopefully I won't be gone too long again!!!


My First Ever Quilt: Chevron Vintage Sheet-Style

I wasn't going to post this until I revamped our picnic basket, but I'm super excited about the turnout!

Let me start off by reiterating that I am not a quilter, nor do I have the desire to be like the great many of you who are.  I applaud and adore your works and dedication to the craft.  It takes sheer talent to quilt.  I had to preface this post with that notice in the event you look at how wonky this quilt is and thought that I was trying to pass as a quilter.  

{Tutorial} : Simple Cardstock Mailer

I typically make my own mailers for when I ship packages to my customers.  I like making them myself because 1) they are inexpensive, 2)they are totally customizable, and 3) they are always readily available.  I whipped up a little tutorial to demonstrate my process.

Let's go!
