Aug. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout

Are any of you out there melting as much as we are here in Utah?  It is definitely the dog days of summer!  Maybe that is why I have had lemons and lemonade on my mind all week…and that is what I have chosen for the theme for the Aug. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!Aug 2016 VT handout (more…)

Sew together bag

Sew Together Bag

Today I have a fun Sew Together Bag that I want to show you!

I ordered this pattern several months ago and I have even had the fabric for awhile, but have just not taken the time to sew it together until now…but now I am kind of hooked on making these darling bags and have made two of them and have the supplies to make several more!  I am a little bit crazy like that!  :)

Pioneer Days Celebration

Here in Utah it is a holiday weekend…it is Pioneer Days, our state holiday!  Celebrating when the pioneers first arrived in the Salt Lake Valley.  We had our Pioneer Days Celebration by spending a couple of days at our cabin and then up at our hunting property!  We have added a pavilion on the property with a fire pit, so of course we had to roast hot dogs and make smores!July 2016-003 (more…)

fairy garden

Fairy Garden

When my husband and I went to Waco, TX, last month, we went to the Magnolia shops and I was able to purchase some items to start a Fairy Garden!  I have never really thought about having a fairy garden, but when I saw the cute accessories that they had there,  I got excited about making one!fairy garden (more…)

tie dyed shirts

Vinyl and Tie Dyed Shirts

We have been busy at our house doing all kinds of fun crafts this summer.  A couple of the projects that we have done are Vinyl and Tie Dyed Shirts!  The kids have had so much fun with these and they were super easy to do!

I tended one extra granddaughter for a few days over the 4th of July Holiday, so we thought it would be fun to make these red shirts!

hipster bags

Hipster Bags

I made a hipster bag back in May and my granddaughter and her friend decided that they wanted to make one, so we got some fabric and these two cute girls went to work.  We ended up doing part of them one day and finishing them the next week!  Here is what their Hipster Bags looked like:hipster bags

On our recent trip to Waco, Texas, I found a darling little quilt shop that I visited, called “Simply Fabrics”.   I found this cute “Sassy Little Apron” pattern and decided that I “needed it”.  It is an easy to sew pattern and it has a very flattering fit!sassy little apron (more…)

Wildflowers at the Cabin

My husband and I went up to our cabin last week and it was a beautiful site!  As we turned around a bend we saw beautiful fields of Wildflowers at the Cabin!  There were so many of them that I decided I “needed” a beautiful bouquet to enjoy for the time that we were there!Wildflowers at the cabin (more…)
