Handmade Closet: Ayda Top & Dress and Tammy’s Tulip Shorts Pattern Testing

Earlier this spring, I was so honored (and excited!!) to be invited to do some really fun pattern testing, and I am finally able to share the results with you today!  The amazingly talented Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline and Katie Skoog of The Simple Life Pattern Company joined forces to create the sweetest collaborative Mommy & Me 6-Pattern Collection!  I have several of both Caroline’s women’s patterns and Katie’s girl’s patterns and have tested for Caroline in the past, so testing for[Read more]

Pattern Testing: Ania Tunic from Coffee & Thread

Earlier this month, I was so excited to be selected to be a tester for Coffee & Thread’s just released pattern, the Ania Tunic!  I have tested one other new pattern before, and it is extremely empowering and undoubtedly humbling at the same time to help a pattern designer (aka GENIUS) perfect their sewing patterns for mass release.  Olga from Coffee & Thread is so talented, and I used her gorgeous Eleena Dress pattern to sew up the girls Easter/Baptism dresses back[Read more]

Friday Favorites: The Roho Blouse

Happy Friday, my friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I was lucky to get a day date out to lunch with Scott, and then Brantley’s softball practice was cancelled, so we went out to dinner too, and took the kids! Lots of candy, lots of chocolate, and lots of love! For my Friday Favorites today, I’m sharing a special project I’ve been working on and hinting about… The Roho Blouse from Cotton + Thread! I’ve talked[Read more]

What I Wore

I am finally getting to another What I Wore post!  I am thrilled that we’re in that lovely transition from late summer to early fall- where I don’t feel like my skin is melting into the denim when I wear jeans, and I can even manage a sweatshirt in the mornings!  Fall is my favorite (#basic), and here’s what I’ve been wearing this week! I can’t resist a striped dress.  I love the ruffle sleeve detail on this one, and how easily it can transition[Read more]

What I Wore

Hi Friends!  Hope you’re having a great week so far!  I’m here to share my outfits for the week for What I Wore– I have a great friend in our small group at church who has a friend who is moving.  They are downsizing, and she was getting rid of 4 trashbags FULLLLLLLLLLLL of clothes.  She gave them to my friend to look through, and then my friend gave them to ME to look through!  90% of the clothes either[Read more]

What I Wore

Hi Friends!  I’m back today with another What I Wore post today.  If you’ve been reading long enough, you know the background behind WIW posts, but if you haven’t read or followed long before, you may be wondering why this crazy girl has pictures of her outfits up on her blog.

Friday Favorites + Reflections on the First Week of Summer

The first week of summer is always kind of an adjustment, amiright?  I feel like summertime is kind of like childbirth- you always look back on it fondly and don’t always remember how hard the bad parts were, haha!  We thrive on schedules around here and are definitely loving the lax bedtimes and laid back mornings,  but we’re still finding our groove.  But we’ll figure it out, just in time for school to start back, I’m sure, ha! So with it[Read more]

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!  And WHEW, what a weekend!  The kids were gone to Aiken visiting Nana and Pop and all their Luton cousins Thursday through Sunday, but we had so much going on, I stayed so busy!  Here’s a peek at what we did: I took the kids to meet my in-laws Thursday afternoon, and Scott headed out of town for a Friday work event.  I was totally on my own for the night!!  So I did a little solo shopping,[Read more]
