powerpuff girls halloween 2015

Ok so forgive me for only have one iphone picture of these costumes! I was pregnant with Jack and was pretty much phoning it in. The girls' dresses I made with some knit from Joanns, color blocked with the appropriate colors, didn't finish any hems or anything! lol! I made Sadie's red bow from felt, and bought Charlotte's and Rory's wigs on … [Read more...]

Greatest Showman Circus Party

If you're anything like my family, you've had The Greatest Showman soundtrack on repeat for the last while-my kids adore the songs! They are super catchy and singalongable (totes a word), and when Charlotte mentioned she wanted a party with that theme, I JUMPED. I've always wanted to do a circus party and this seemed like the perfect way to do … [Read more...]

plethora of cosi suits

Look at those model poses! these girls crack me up! These photos and suits are actually from last summer (BAD blogger!),  but I'm on a bit of a blogging kick (we'll see how long that lasts), and so I thought I'd blog them anyways, since they are still wearing them this season and loving them! I decided to go for some tankinis this time, with of … [Read more...]

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...]

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...]

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...]
