Music Wednesday!

This week I give you one of the best oldies out there. Portishead’s Glory Box, it’s a perfect little song for the slow beginning to the week and the weird weather out there. Just press play and enjoy :)

Pin it with Style

Last week after Turkey day we had a mini class to make some fabulous fabric boards.  The task was big, but the girls delivered.  Each one brought their A game and the boards was a true reflection of the bright personalities.  We had some good laughs and the boards were awesome.

Gotta repeat this one!


Now, we all love playing with felt.  Well, if you think about it, it comes in great colors (especially the beautiful collection from Heather Bailey), it doesn’t fray and it is super easy to sew and layer.  So you cut out a heart and a few doo dads and voila you got something cute.  This lady however from beedeebabee, takes the whole felt thing to a whole different label.  Check it.  Pretty Ahmazin’

Advent Goodness

Since my 17 year old was little I have been making some version of an advent calendar.  Everthing from bags, to boxes to little drawers.  When the goodies have been too big to fit, I would give a little hint and sometimes stump her for the whole day.  This is a great simple idea from the Mary France Project that has a great Recycling factor.

Birthday Fashionistas

We’ve had quite a run of our “Project Runway” birthdays lately.  This is the most recent from the weekend.  The girls are set in groups and get a conglomeration of doodads with tee shirt and have to use everything and come up with an outfit.  The girls really brought their creativity and the ideas were running wild. Game on!   At the end the 3 groups awed us with a mini fashion show.  Loved all the results!
