Do you have any projects that you have had all the supplies for a long time before you got around to making it? Well these dresses are one of those projects. I had the pattern for a few months before I bought the fabric and then I had the fabric for several months before I got around to making them. But I think the wait was well worth it!
This is a Carina Gardner pattern, love nest ruffle dress.
I fell in love with this dress when I saw it at a little shop last summer and so I bought the pattern. This pattern does not have the very best directions and you would need to have some sewing experience before sewing this dress. It was a little bit confusing when it came to sewing on the ruffles and you just have to kind of guess where they should go, there is no definite measurement. I also don’t like putting in the zipper last because it is harder to do, than when you can put it in on a flat piece. But all in all, it worked out okay.
The girls seems pleased with them and we did a little photo shoot with everyone, which they also love to do! :)
Look at those baby blues! Aren’t they just the cutest!
This is one of those candid shots that I LOVE!
These girls are so fun and I love each one of them. They keep me on my toes!
I don’t have a ton of pictures of this cute little one, so I will cherish this one!
Our littlest one had had it by this time, but I love this picture even though she was not happy! She is still a doll.
It is a good thing that there are only 4 little girls because I don’t know if I could sew many more dresses than that! :)
Okay now it is time for you to go finish one of those projects that has been hiding in the closet for months! You’ll feel much better when it is done… I promise you.
Have a great day everyone! Love Ya!Pin It

Happy Thursday Everyone!
I do not have a thought for you today, but I do have a printable for you!
I had to make the invites for our Relief Society Birthday activity for church, so I decided that I would share it with you. You could use this for any party…all you have to do is add the information!
To print, right click over the image and go to “save image as” then save in a folder. Or you can right click over the image and go to “copy image”, then open your favorite program like Word or Presentations and right click again and go to “paste”. Or you can send this out to your favorite photo processing center, which is what I did! This is formatted to a 4 x 6 card.
This is the invitation that I made, I included it so you could see how I added the information to this card.
So does anyone have a party coming up that they need an invitation for?
I worked on this Relief Society activity all day yesterday, so that I will be ready for it next week!
I had to make some little fold-overs for the table centerpieces… but I got them all done so now I can move on to my next project, right? :)
I hope that you are all having a great Thursday!
The weekend is just around the corner! Yeah!
Have a great day everyone! Love Ya!

I don’t really do that much scrapbooking any more, but I wanted to learn these new techniques and so I decided that it would be fun to create these pages in 8.5 x 11 format and then I could frame them in an 8 x 10 frame if I wanted to!Pin It

I saw this saying on a bumper sticker the other day and I have been laughing ever since! If you know a teacher or you are a teacher, this is a great saying to frame and put on your desk!

Today I have a super simple wood project!
I have been wanting a coco-cola sign for out on my potting table on my back patio, I know that it is still winter here in Utah, but I am already getting spring fever and with the few warm days that we have had lately my “fever” is getting even higher!Pin It

My DIL and I have been waiting for a picture of us and the Pioneer Woman together; it was supposed to be emailed to us from the RootsTech conference… but it has not come yet and I decided that I would go ahead and do this post. When the picture comes I will insert it later. :)
This is a picture that she signed for me!
I asked my DIL if she would consider writing this post and she very graciously agreed! So this is her version of what happened that day! (more…)Pin It

I was planning on doing a post about meeting the Pioneer Woman today, but I am still waiting for one photo…so I am going to post these darling dishtowels instead! :)
Is anyone out there still working on your goals that you set? I am still using this book, by Connie Sokol, and I am loving the fact that I set a new goal each week and then I REWARD myself! It really seems silly that a grown woman needs a reward in order to get her goals accomplished, but guess what? It is working…so I will keep doing it if it works! My goal for the week was to clean out two, (yes, I have two) dishtowel drawers! I purged the old ones and washed and ironed all of my aprons and folded everything neatly. It looks so good, that sometimes I just open the drawer to look at how wonderful it looks! Well my reward was that I got to make two new dishtowels. I had this fabric from our trip last March and I still had not made them up, so I told myself that was going to be my reward…to make these darling dishtowels.Pin It

Hey everyone, how are you doing today?
It has been snowing again here in Utah, UGH! But we really do need the water, so I guess that I had better not complain! :)
So with the bad weather, I usually stay inside and work on a project. I have 3 different wood projects from Poppy Seed Projects, so I pulled them out and started working on them. The first one that I made was this super easy magnet board:Pin It
