A Percy Jackson inspired birthday celebration


Hi friends!

It's been awhile...and I hope this post finds you healthy and safe.  We've had a few creative projects this year, and I'm sure one day I'll get around to documenting them here, but in the meantime I wanted to jump on here to some things we put together for Lu's bday.  

No big birthday celebration this year thanks to COVID, but we still tried to make the best of things Camp Halfblood style!  Lu's been really into the Percy Jackson series, so she wanted to try to recreate camp halfblood. We got her an archery set and had so much fun making Greek God inspired accessories and shirts with our silhouette cameo.  Lu made the shirts using designs that were a fusion of a few different designs she saw online. 

We had a Karpos monster (aka: modified pineapple pinata) that the kids battled, and a greek inspired building activity with marshmallows, toothpicks, and rice crispy treats. We also had a water balloon fight--Lu initially wanted to make it Medusa themed where you were frozen when you got hit, but ultimately the kids were just too excited and it turned into typical water balloon fight.

Ah, and then the food....Lu wanted junkfood and blue food...and so that's what we did!  Pizza, blueberries, and blue rainbow jello

We also found a few other blue junk foods for the kids to enjoy: blue Hostess Snoballs, Calypso blue lemonade, and blue push pops.  

Overall it was a fun Camp Half blood inspired day!




Puppies and more!


Hi friends!

I hope this post finds you healthy and in good spirits.  2020 has been quite a year, hasn't it?

I wanted to jump online to show you our latest project, which I have to say is a twist on one of my favorite all time projects--THE PUPPIES!  


Free Patterns: For when there is nothing to do....

Hi friends,

I haven't had time to blog for a while....and then the world shut down..

I truly believe that this shutdown offers opportunities that we don't even probably fully comprehend right now.  Many of us have time on our hands that we couldn't have even imagined a month ago.

For some people, that means being able to use a bit of their fabric stash.  If you are like me, the ability to create something can seem calming and way to combat anxiety.  I stopped selling my patterns a little over a year ago, and now seemed like the perfect opportunity to make some publicly available, for free.

So I picked my 4 favorite patterns and uploaded them here for you.  Here's the puppy dog pattern and the dog carrier pattern

And here's my June bug doll pattern:

And here's my little house pattern:

In times like these, offering a few patterns like these doesn't seem like much.  But I hope that someone enjoys them.  We're in all in this together.  I wish everyone health and quality time spent with family in isolation.

I'll be trying to juggle work with kids at home, but I imagine that there will be some time for crafting, and if we do anything interesting I might share it here.  This week, my plan is to try to do some art with the kids.  I'm going to use this Pinterest board for my inspiration.




Christmas Around the World Advent Calendar

Hi friends!

I can't believe that it is already December!  I wanted to hop on there and share a free printable that I made for my daughter's girl scout troop.  We're studying holidays around the world, and this advent calendar brings you through some interesting facts about how people celebrate Christmas around the world!


A Very Harry Potter July!

 Hi friends!
It has been quite a while, hasn't it?  Life is busy, but a good kind of busy.  I thought about not sharing this post because it's just so incomplete...My pictures aren't great, and I don't have any great step by step pictures to share. That's the reality of life though isn't it?  Life isn't perfect, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth documenting or sharing.  There's some really fun, good stuff here...I hope you'll agree with me!
