Hey guys I’ve been meaning to check in but have been a very busy bee trying to get my little business off the ground! I am pleased to say we now have a website that is nearly finished and I am staying super busy with lots of orders which is different but I love it.
I woke up this morning super excited because one of my shutterfly packages came today! I wanted to get some pictures of my nieces printed and some random other pics I’ve taken of family and friends. I actually had a coupon for 101 free prints and only spent $8 on shipping which didn’t seem to bad. They came out looking so good and now I can hang them on the walls!
Here’s some already on the wall I think I need more frames! I love the big collage frame in the middle, It’s nice having a place to put the pictures I have of my mom where I can see them. I actually have two little frames with pictures of Jessie but one is broken and the other is on my night stand and you guys don’t wanna see the mess that is my night stand.
I have been mostly making dresses for small babies these last few months. I love how simple but cute they are.
I can’t wait to see them on the babies they were bought for sooo cute!
I hope you guys have a great week!
Hey Everyone! Just popping by to say hello before I get super busy with the holidays. I hope everyone is well and staying warm!
So I would like to share with you all this funny thing that happens to me a lot, or at least whenever I buy fabric at Joann fabric.
I usually go knowing I’m going to spend at least $40-$50 but only go when I know something is on sale and I can buy a lot of it, like today I went after Christmas quilting fabric because I knew it was 50% off. I actually just missed it being 65% off! ugh! But regardless $3 a yard is great! And I picked out the brightest most fun prints that were on sale, I will show you guys the finished quilt’s when they are done.
Anyway back to the story I was going to tell.
Those of you who know me know I am less than 5 foot tall, So imagine me going down each isle carefully selecting fabrics for various things I am going to make. Now imagine little bitty me walking up to the cutting station with all that fabric stacked almost as tall as me! I wish you guys could see the look on their faces on days when I walk up there with nearly 20 fabric bolts. It must be quite the sight to see! I know joann’s may not be the cheapest but they have the most to choose from and almost always have flannel on sale which I buy the most and the people who work there are so nice and all seem to do some kind of crafts. After going there almost a year I feel like I’ve gotten to know how crafty all the fabric cutting gals really are,while I watch them cut all that fabric we end up chit chatting about projects and swapping tips, they are just fantastic!
Well I’ve had a long day of bargain hunting and sewing so I’m calling it a night
I’ll write again soon!
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!
Now that I’m less busy I’m going to give a nice little update and hopefully get back to blogging more regularlyish.
Any way in the last few months since I gave everyone an update so here you go.
I spent months working on things for my first craft show I also spent some time staying with my sister to help her get ready for her sweet twins.
It was on the 13th and 14th and went very well I think, I brought Jessie who was a great help especially once we got busier and had a lot of people at once.
I learned a lot about what sells and how to better improve when setting up, I had to come out of my shy little shell and talk to so many people but it really boosted my confidence to see how much people liked my stuff.
I loved talking to the other vendors as well everyone had something different, and everyone was so willing to give me tips and even help when we moved everything around the second day.
Anyway here are some pictures of my booth:
I have also been making lots of cute little baby items for my new twin nieces who were born on the 17th!
I would like to start by saying my siblings make the cutest kids no doubt!
Now I would like you to meet Lilly and Zoey.
Are they not the most beautiful newborns ever? AND they have soo much hair!!!
I’m so happy for my sister and her beautiful little family. Just keep in mind Aunt Tiffy is always up for babysitting! Always!
Hope you enjoyed reading and hopefully I will be posting more often.
Last weekend we took a trip to Nashville to meet my sister halfway since we hadn’t seen her since she made a trip down for Easter.
The trip seems much longer than it really is but I guess that’s because we left at like four in the morning to get there.
We all went to the Parthenon Museum and checked out all the statues and paintings, then out to a delicious dinner at cracker barrel.
It was so so very hot! I’m so glad we had a pool at the hotel to cool off in because we just happened to go to Nashville when they had record highs of 109 degrees!!!
Thank goodness we decided to go for ice-cream, perfect desert on such a hot day!
The last stop for our trip was paying a visit to antique archaeology in Nashville A.K.A American pickers store! Pretty cool to see all the stuff they have found picking on the show.
It was a great trip I hope we can all do it again soon since we miss you guys already!
I guess this is my first recipe post for summer, I did make some cherry ice cream but it tasted awful so I didn’t share the recipe but I will re make it at some point and share it I promise!
Today I’m making a delicious peach cobbler, I’m making it as I type smells pretty darn good if I do say so myself. As a southern lady I get kind of giddy when I start seeing roadside signs about fresh peaches and just have to get some we make them into ice cream, smoothies , cakes, pies or just eat them at my house and they usually don’t last very long unless we can or freeze them for later.
Even when they were cooking they looked gorgeous!
