Getting back into the swing and upcoming tut.....

     It has been quite a task getting back in to a routine for myself and our daughter since returning home. I have a very special sister who took Zoe for a few days for me so I could regroup, rest up and catch up on some much needed cleaning out. (Amazing how one man living it up bachelor style for a few weeks can have so many dirty clothes and a dirty house!) Never the less I have once again found my groove and am well on my way to being back to the norm of our little life here in the seaside town of Beaufort. I must say the weather has teased me a few days with bright sunshine and warm winds it leaves me aching for spring and summer. We even had to plant some flowers the other day because as my daughter stated "Girl, we need some color on our porch!' Seriously I couldn't make this up, my 5 year old has my husband's quick wit and sense of humor! So enough of all the chit chat.
     I wanted to post a photo of a quick little tutorial I will be writing up for you all. It is for a cosmetic roll up. I just love having my brushes right at my finger tips when traveling and this makes it easy and organized. This is a quick 30-45 minute project that could also make a great gift for someone or just for yourself.



More to come, also will do a tutorial for the pleated zippered pouch one day as well....

Thanks Brownie-Goose

I have to rave about this new pattern that a dear friend brought to me! It is by Brownie-Goose and is the Bay Dress/Top, Check out all of her cute patterns here at Brownie-Goose.
     I made up a dress for her daughter this evening and I can hardly wait to do more. I have a stash of fabric that has been waiting for that perfect dress and top. Our daughters will have these for just about every day of the week! I am itching to get started, come on summer (or just warmer weather). I think pairing these with a great pair of leggings would be ideal for springtime!






















This back is just incredible, I'm still swooning!


These two girls are such sweet friends and want to have the exact same clothes! Of course they are the best models! LOL I've got my work cut out for me!!!

The Beautiful Wife

I have had the privilege to be in a small group called The Beautiful Wife. We are studying this book "The Beautiful Wife" By Sandy Ralya. When starting this group I found out that when these groups are going on Sandy herself is praying over us. Not only our church, but her...the very author of her book is praying for us.  You can email her to let her know you are hosting this group and she encourages you through special messages and prayer. I just think this is an amazing way to connect with an author who is passionate about women becoming a more beautiful wife!
     Throughout the last 6 weeks we have read, studied and journaled topics from Self-Care to Inviting Romance into your marriage. It has been a very deep, emotional and eye opening 6 weeks for me. There are areas in my marriage that were quietly hidden that have been opened raw and healed through prayer, journaling and sharing with this amazing group of women that I have come to love and support. It is easy to…

New Twist on a skirt.....

Haven't had a chance to post in a few days. I had a Vendor event this past weekend so all of last week I spent preparing items to take with me. I truly love these events they are specifically for women and their home business. We get to chat, share and enjoy one another for an entire day with no men and kids!!! I am fascinated by the creativity in each individual person and the talents that these women have! Afterward I spent the rest of the weekend at my sister's house which was a treat with the littles running around.<br /> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; I photoed a skirt that is one of my most favorite designs I actually happened upon by mistake. I messed up the first skirt I ever made by placing the elastic in the wrong spot and it turned into this skirt with a high ruffled waist. So after having Zoe I knew I wanted her in this skirt. I later found a design for the skirt and realized in my little world that I was not the genius I thought I was by having this adora…
