Kids might be going back to school suggesting that summer might almost be over, but that doesn’t mean the heat is going anywhere fast. Shorts are one of those items you have to have in August in Houston, whether you like them or not. I always seem to have a hard time finding some that fit just right, so I created this customer pattern for the cutest paper bag waist shorts! Continue reading “DIY Paper Bag Waist Shorts”
If there’s anything you’re used to seeing around here, it’s home decorating changes. No matter what, I’m always getting inspired to mix up the color scheme, add elements for different seasons, or even just rearrange furniture for the heck of it.

This Summer I got really inspired to add more color into my space. I read that the best way to decorate is to look at your wardrobe and see what colors you gravitate toward. As it turns out for me, that is a lot of white, gray, pink, green, and blue. I had the white, gray, and pink down, but adding green and blue was something new for me in my little bachelorette pad.

Happy (late) Summer!! It’s been a light month for posting for me since my brother got married and I was preoccupied cutting squares of fabric to cover little jam jars as favors, but I managed to sneak in a really adorable new sewing project!

In my 15+ years of sewing, my ambitions started high (i.e. making a gown with very cheap fabric), steeply dropped (i.e. making many, many tube skirts), and tapered off at easy-medium level projects.

Over Easter I was so lucky to have my family come to stay with me. Every time I see my them it takes me back to all of the memories I have baking with them in the kitchen. Starting back as a child standing on a chair peering over the bowl of the Kitchen Aid mixer, and more recently rolling out pie crust with my Dad and my sister as she teaches me how to make a proper lattice weave. Did I mention she is 14? I need to enlist her on the blog more often! Continue reading “Small Batch Carrot Cake Recipe”
In the last year I have come to appreciate good lounge wear. White tees and jogger pants have been my favorite go-to items when I want to be cozy at home. Having non-ratty tee shirts and PJ shorts that aren’t from middle school actually does keep me motivated even after I’ve come home after a long day of work to get some chores done or cook a decent meal. Not to mention it’s much more appropriate for running out to the grocery store for a last minute item. Continue reading “The Perfect Jogger Pants Sewing Tutorial”
