So a friends daughter got a bunk bed for her dolls over Christmas. It didn’t come with bedding and so she put a call out for any of her sewing friends that would be up to making some. Well I’m capable and thought I had some left over fabrics that would work. Turns out I did and so I offered. Below is the result. 

Made one little girl very happy. 


Nothing like a  friend’s wedding to get one off her butt. I’ve been working on her invitations for her wedding, this includes the designing and putting together of the rsvp’s and save the date magnets. I’m only waiting now for the number that I need to produce.  Hopefully this will be a turning point… we shall see.

I tell myself this EVERY day. It’s hard sometimes, and I often find myself lost in a hole of crap. So… with that in mind I am pushing myself.

Between now and the end of August I am determined to put together something.


Because well I’m sick of not taking pictures anymore, I’m sick of seeing all my scrap folders going to waste on my hard drive, and I’m sick of seeing the basket of materials collect dust in the corner of my room. We are in the middle of prepping to move into my MIL’s home and so I know this is like so stupid to start something now but I think I need to. I really miss playing around with photoshop.

Keep an eye out, I’ll have templates soon for a small project I want to do. I hope you’ll join me.

My oldest daughter turns 4 this month, on the 21st. Isn’t it just amazing how fast time flies? I realized yesterday that I had planned her invites, but had not actually created them… WHOOPS!!! So I sat down this morning and hammered them out, they are printed and now all I need to do is wait for the glitter paint to dry. Then I can put the girls names into the cards and stuff the envelopes, place a stamp and run them to the post office.  I’m hoping the girls invited will get their invites by Tuesday.  The mail here in our town moves pretty fast.  I’m thinking they will have them by Wednesday at the latest.

She is having her first ever pajama party, I thought it was a happy substitute for a Princess party that she had her heart set on.  She’s now really excited about it.  And its only 2 weeks away!!!  Ugh, I have sleep masks to sew, bags to decorate and food to plan. I need to get busy on the sleep masks, they will likely take me the longest amount of time.  

I used Stop! Jammer Time by Robin Carlton & MandaBean from, to make the invites and envelopes.  I will most likely make thank you cards as well but given my short amount of time to get the rest of the party things done I will wait until after the party.

A peek at her invites:

Hi Card

I created the round card on an 8.5 x 11 page in Photoshop, then moved the different layers so that I could print them.  Then I cut out each piece and assembled.  I used a presticky backed ribbon from my craft stuff, and the eyelets were also from my craft stuff.  It took me maybe an hour total from design to assembly.  Now all I need to do is an envelope and it should be ready to go.

For my dad.  Its a tin album.  I came across one in a gallery I was looking at and thought it would make a great gift for my dad.  It was so very simple.  I created 8 little layouts to put inside. Printed them, cut them out, folded a piece of cardstock into like an accordian.  Rubber cemented them on, and then the bottom one was rubber cemented into the inside of the tin.  All thats left to be done is take a nail file to buff the edges of the top and bottom to make them level with the tin.
