Jack’s newsies party

I absolutely LOVED  planning this Newsies themed party. The 90's Disney movie was my favorite movie growing up (still in my top 5), and my friend Megan and I would watch it every single sleepover we had-and had it memorized! I also was lucky enough to see the Broadway version when it was on tour and loved it almost as much as the movie! (my girls … [Read more...]

dollhouse sewing room

Hey fellow crafty peoples! Today I have finally written a post about my dollhouse sewing space! The new one, that is. The old version looked like this, in case you're curious. (you know you are...) I LOVE THE NEW ROOM. Let's just get that out of the way. I started off by installing shiplap over the old stencil, since I needed something to cover … [Read more...]

miniature version of a real life room

I've been bitten by the miniatures bug! It's official. I have pretty much finished up the dollhouse reno-just need to write the posts! Still, I was chomping at the bit for a new project. Sooo...I decided to miniature-ize real life rooms that I find online! First up is this beautiful entry way designed by Anne Sage for West Elm See their pic … [Read more...]

modern dollhouse: kids rooms

Starting off the newest dollhouse remodel-is the upper level of the house! the two "kids rooms" as we like to call them. They were a girls room, and a nursery before, but now that we have Jack in the family, I redid the nursery as a little boy's room! and went all out with a Star Wars theme! (because why not?) I had actually decorated it … [Read more...]

BLUSH kitty Nessie top

Finally finished up this Nessie top for Charlotte-but it ended up fitting Ava much better. How are my kids getting so big? Not allowed. The Art Gallery knit fabric is of course, gorgeous and lovely to sew with as always! It always washes really well too. I sewed up a size 6 and it fit Ava well with some room to grow into-just how I like my … [Read more...]

DIY DOLLHOUSE PLANTS

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've been redecorating the dollhouse!   An refresh has been needed for awhile, the girls have been really good with it in general but have broken or lost some things, and it just needed an update. I knew I'd want to update it every so often because I love making miniatures so much, so I decided it was time! … [Read more...]

updated craft room

It's been about 2 years since I moved from the largest bedroom in our house, to the second smallest. Quite the downgrade, but honestly I like it better. It's been a great reason to downsize my stash and only keep the things I really use! aaand then I kinda threw everything in here and called it a day for the last two years. I finally got the … [Read more...]

yotb harrison hoodie

I had this loosely knit french terry fabric burning a whole in my pocket-er...stash shelf...and I knew I wanted to make a Harrison Hoodie before too long-THUS this adorable little sweater was born! I made a size 12-18 months, which fit very well! It was such a quick make-It felt like even including piecing the pattern and cutting, it was about an … [Read more...]

updated girls room

I thought I'd do a little update post on the girls room since we've had to make some changes since we redid it about 2 years ago. The biggest change is the bed! Ava has always been our fastest growing girl, so we knew her toddler sized bed wouldn't last much longer. We don't have space in the room for an extra twin size bed plus the low loft bunk … [Read more...]

olive flashback skinny tee

I know probably, that some people don't care to see every t shirt I make this year. But to be accurate, and because Jack is a cutie pie (even with his weird I'm-eating-swedish-fish-faces), I am going to blog everything I make him, even if it ends up being a flop or a gift (because I got so caught up in boy making I made a few things for my friend … [Read more...]
