Feather Apron Flower Girl Dress

Feathers. Feathers. Feathers. Pieces here… pieces there… they were practically everywhere! But in the end it was all worth it! In case you missed my last two posts, here’s the summary: My sister asked me to help with my niece’s flower girl dress. The theme of the dresses was feathers. That was the bride’s only requirement… the rest was up to the mommies. I’ve never worked with feathers, but I knew […]

Zombie Bride Costume

Earlier this year (yup, the kid plans ahead!), Suraya decided she wanted to be something “scary” (as she puts it) for Halloween. That something scary is a zombie bride… and I liked that idea! As I was searching for ideas, I came across this Corpse Bride costume over at Family Ever After. I loved it, so decided to use it as the inspiration for Suraya’s costume. First thing on the […]

Vintage Inspired Gauchos

It’s no secret that I love anything vintage and anything vintage inspired. A few months ago, I had received vintage style fabric as a gift from a dear friend of mine… a friend that apparently knows me well enough to even think of buying me fabric as a gift! I should add that this friend does not sew but knows good fabric when she sees it. She sent it all […]

Personalized Pennant Garland

The last of my orders from a couple weeks ago involves a “garden” full of cuteness! This order was for a very special client… it was for my niece Sofia’s first birthday! Yeah, I call the little bug a client… even though this was a gift from me… she still counts as a client. :P Now her mommy and daddy (daddy being my big bro) are bit of a last […]

The Reveal.. Finally!

I am so excited, and at the same time relieved, that Suraya’s space is finally done! I’m not the only one… so is Suraya! Ready to see the final outcome? Just in case you forgot what it looked like before, you can see it HERE. Here is Suraya’s cleaned up, organized, and more breathable space… Her desk is no longer crowded… she actually has space to work on it! Don’t mind the […]

Thrift Shop Chair Makeover

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Since we had a holiday break last week, it didn’t feel like much of a weekend for me. I had to stop and think what day of the week it was to realize it was actually the weekend. Did anyone else get thrown off? Well, we have a fresh new start. That’s what’s nice about Monday’s. Don’t you agree? Now, let’s get to […]

Art Supply Center

If you recall, I’ve been working on organizing Suraya’s side of the room and making it look prettier. I’ve made her a framed monogram, pillows for her bed, and a magnet board for her magnet collection. Next up was organizing her desk and space. Suraya loves arts and crafts. Her arts and crafts supplies were in desperate need to get organized as was her desk. It completely slipped my mind […]

Play Kitchen [Part 2]

In my previous post I introduced you to a play kitchen that needed to be built. I purchased that play kitchen from Target two years ago for Suraya. For these past two years, Suraya and the kitchen waited patiently for someone to put it together. That someone was Suraya’s daddy. Yup, that sure is a lot of patience for a kid. See, I didn’t think of doing it myself for […]
