Learning to Sew

I have always wanted to be the type of mom that creates all her kids Halloween costumes. I have never felt particularly talented, but I love to create!

So, I watched A LOT of youtube videos and went to work sewing. I still wasn't quite sure of myself, so I enlisted the help of a very talented friend to help me out.

I am still learning, but I am enjoying the ride. The friendship I have made with Sister Suzi will be treasured for a lifetime.

 Suzi put the applique on, but the dress was all me!
 Not going to lie, bloomers are hardwork! But they are so cute!
 I made these key fobs. I love them, super simple and very sturdy. 


I have an enormous bin of scrap papers that have been used in several different projects over the years. I made a goal to use up some of these scraps. I made three cards all from scrap papers. It is challenging at times to stretch my imagination and come up with something new. 

My next challenge is going to be making some fancy fold cards and then also create all the items I want to enter into this year's Canfield Fair!

Graduation Gift Card Holder

I was so excited to try something new this year. Maymay is one of my favorite youtubers and she made these awesome gift card holders. Here is the link to her tutorial:

Here are my cards I made using the tutorial.
