DIY Spring Mini Wardrobe 

Is it weird that I’m writing about my spring capsule AFTER making and posting about my fall capsule? No? Ok, great 🙂  I’ll be honest with you – participating in the spring capsule contest, hosted by Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates, was a COMPLETELY last minute decision! I made 5 or 6 ofContinue reading “DIY Spring Mini Wardrobe “

Bee’s Fall Mini Capsule 

My wild little Bee is the last person on the planet that needs more clothing, especially since I JUST finished her “spring” mini-capsule wardrobe a few months ago. Alas, I can’t resist. Here is her previous mini-capsule, that was really just an effort to give her dad a fair shot at dressing her in somethingContinue reading “Bee’s Fall Mini Capsule “

DIY Fall Mini Wardrobe

This past spring, I participated in a mini-capsule contest hosted by Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates. I had SO much fun creating different combinations with the nine pieces I made (plus a pair of jeans). When they made an announcement that they were hosting another event for the fall, I knew I had toContinue reading “DIY Fall Mini Wardrobe”

Made for Mermaids Nina and Mama Nina 

I was SO excited to test the two newest patterns for Made for Mermaids, Nina and Mama Nina. There are few things I love more than a cute, comfy swing dress, and Mama Nina is just the one I’ve been searching for my whole life. Please don’t tell my husband. 🙂 Mama Nina and Nina both featureContinue reading “Made for Mermaids Nina and Mama Nina “

DIY Pendant Lamp (also: I Have a Target Problem) 

Some of my favorite DIY projects are easy, cheap, and appall my husband. Several months ago, I was in Target buying dog food. I repeated to myself, “I am only here for dog food. I will not look at throw pillows. I will not look at throw pillows.” Well, in order to get to theContinue reading “DIY Pendant Lamp (also: I Have a Target Problem) “

Bee’s Room

If I’m being honest, one of the reasons I was so excited about having a baby girl was designing a baby girl nursery (also in my top five list of reasons were baby headbands and ruffly baby clothes). Her room was truly a labor of love, and is my favorite room in our house. WeContinue reading “Bee’s Room”

DIY Batman and Robin Costumes

After sharing E’s Halloween costumes from the last few years, it seemed natural to share the kids’ costumes for this year. I finished them about 3 minutes before they needed to wear them to a costume birthday party. Hands down, these were the easiest costumes I’ve made. Not the cheapest, but most of the piecesContinue reading “DIY Batman and Robin Costumes”

DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween costumes have become a pretty big deal around here. E has always loved dressing up, and I’d be lying if I said I had nothing to do with that. For example, for his first Halloween, I dressed him up as a pirate during his nap. I don’t know what happened to my mom-motivation theContinue reading “DIY Halloween Costumes”
