Weekend Creations

New projects to benefit daddy!!! I had a lot of crafty time this weekend and as much as I think my dear husband would have preferred me to clean up my craft space…which now includes my new desk AND the table I was using before :) I have promised that I will condense soon! Either way, I wanted to make a few new items to list in my etsy but a little more for the boys! I decided to make a few things for Chris and Sawyer that could double as an item to list. Here they are! Let me know what you think! Chris loves them. Camo and hunting isn’t my thing, but the mainstream baby colors aren’t exactly masculine enough for my man either!

Hunting Themed Burp Cloths
(I really love how these turned out...I saw a tutorial on getting brave and dyeing burp cloths awhile back. I am sorry I can't give credit because I can't remember where I saw it! Either way it boiled down to TRY IT!!! I bought the bottle and followed the directions and it was fine. If you have any questions, let me know and I will do my best to answer them)

Happy First Day of Spring!

Happy first day of Spring!!! The weather is lovely here in E. TX and looks like it will stay that way all weekend!

I am not sure of everyone else but I seem to have a never ending, ever growing list of need to do and want to projects! At first I thought it was that I had to many types of hobbies and crafts that I enjoyed…now I think my mind just comes up with more than my hands and hours in the day can keep up with! I don’t really write a list, but it’s definitely etched in my mind! I dream of doing things and different ways they can come together. As for my weekend want to do’s…here goes in no particular order…

1) Finish the first desk redo I started

2) It would be great to start and finish the second one as well

3) make a tutu for a dear angel of mine (A)

4) Finish up a few things for my etsy

5) Make a pattern and vest for my own angel

6) Finish sewing a stuffed elephant

7) Try my hand at 2 new sewing projects I have been desperate to do!

Did I mention I have a birthday party and a bbq to squeeze in their somewhere?!?! Ambitious list…yes. Will I finish it I never do, but I always look forward to starting it again!

Do you have a list of projects you want to do? Do you write them down or just keep a mental tally? What’s on your list for this lovely weekend?

For as long as I can remember I have loved crafts and creating! I think I am the one child that inherited this from my momma! Many thanks to my mom for always supporting, encouraging, and funding my next hobby while growing up. It has always been a dream to be able to stay home and still financially contribute to my family using my creativity. I am a realist and know that there are few people that can actually turn crafting into a business, but hey...a girl can dream and fight to get there right?!?!
After too long of saying I am going to, scheming to, planning to, wanting to, overcoming self doubt and fears, and procrastinating, I finally pulled my stuff together! I officially opened an Etsy store! For those of you that aren't familiar with is a website where people can open a "store" for their handmade items. It's a great little community.


It's quite skeletal now, but I promise to keep it growing so check often! If you are looking for something for the little love of your life or a great baby shower gift, check out my store! If you need something specific let me know and we can work on it!

I am inspired by boutique products, just not by the prices! Honestly that is how this journey truly started to take place. I was out window shopping for Sawyer stuff in a local (adorable but EXTREMELY overpriced) boutique... all of the sudden my light bulb came on... Please share with your friends and family! I am a firm believer in word of mouth!

Please remember...I am just starting so there will be a few hiccups. If you have any suggestions or comments, please PLEASE feel free to leave a comment here.

You can also shoot me an email at

I will post new items along with other great things and projects I find online! Follow me!

Here are a few of my starting items...more to follow soon!
(Just a sampling of what is in the store)

Boutique Travel Baby Wipe Cases

Baby Shoes

Burp cloths Bandana Dresses
My mind is swirling with other items and I am working on them as much as I can! I have a handful of things just waiting for decent weather for pictures. Another handful calling my name to start on!
If you have anything you would like to see let me know! Now go check out my store!!
