A few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to send something "handmade" to a group of our online friends for Christmas....but I couldn't think of what I could possibly hand make that would be personal. Then it dawned on me...some handmade postcards! I could cut them out, sprinkle them with some sewing, and hand write a personal message on them. It was perfect! (Sure it's not a pieced quilt but still...) So the other night I got to work and in less than 30 minutes they were all made and ... View the Post
A Baby Doll Dress & How to Add Tulle to the Hem of a Dress or Skirt
If I've said it once I've said it a million times: I wish I could freeze time. A few weeks ago I realized that Grace will be 5 this holiday season...which means she's growing up...and since she's 5 this will probably be the last year I can get away with making her a baby doll dress to wear during the Christmas season.

Advent Calendar Activities Ideas
A few years back my parents gave me this beautiful advent calendar: I love it. They gave one to each of their children on Thanksgiving and filled each door with notes, candy, activities, pocket money, etc. It was so fun to open the door every day and find what little goodie was in store for us.
