Tablecloth Skirt

I made this little number out of the prettiest thrifted table cloth ever. It was a fairly simple upcycle because of how easy/simple "Dana Made It's" Circle Skirt Tutorial. To make this skirt just head on over 

Happy Sewing!

Living Room Design

I was just goofing around and dreaming...thought I would share. Im really into calming colors and the warn/unstained wood look. I catch myself incorporating greens into every room in my house, I just cant help it I love almost every shade of green out there! Is there a color you use a lot or too much of?
For buying information for any of the decor in the board I made go HERE
most of its from anthropology :]

Book Wreath Tutorial

This cost me pennies to make, I used a free book (really lame 80's sex/romance book), cardboard, all of which were free. The only thing that cost was the hot glue I went through during this project, im guessing around 40 cents. I used this tutorial from "Makely Home" to make this and the only thing I did change was the base part, which in her tutorial was a foam wreath but me being the cheapy I am I just cut mine out of carboard. It is a little on the time consuming side, I think I spent around an hour and 20 minutes on mine.

Mini Fall Photo Shoots

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
-Albert Camus

Sometimes the best photographs are the spur of the moment kinds, when you're 
driving down the street and you can't help but stop and take a shot or two...

I used a tripod for some of the shots, for just being something my dad picked up for me at a yard sale
its been pretty handy!


[Last Year At This Time]

Now I wanna get real with you guys, because seriously no toddler is going to stick with you throughout a whole shoot, so here are some out takes

she's whining here
She's done sitting by the pumpkin here

Outfits I Would Like to Illegally Download

Fall is technically here as far as the days go but around my neck of the woods the weather hasn't agreed quite yet that it is indeed fall. After my trip to the  mountains
my body hates the heat and just wants sweater weather badly. Our second trip to Yellowstone didn't help much either! (will blog about when I get enough time) 
Oh well I'll get over it because november will roll around and i'll be missing the warmth of summer :)
Until then i'll just daydream about fall style...

$1.50 Sweater Up-cycle

I saw this during what I thought was going to be a fruitless trip to the Thrift store, I had already been looking through the junk for about 15 minutes and was ready to leave when I saw this. It was in the maternity section but is actually just a 2X Women's sweater. It is in amazing shape, had the tags still on it and was such a pretty shade of soft pink. I knew right away just what to do with it. So I bought it and brought it home to sew into an asymmetrical slouchy sweater, 
which took a total of 2 seams and around 15 minutes for me to do which means its a ten minute project!
Hoooooray for easiness!

 Doesn't it look so soft!

1) Basically You flip the sweater inside out 
2) Then you pin the sides about where you see I laid my ruler 
in the photo above all the way down the sweater. Towards the bottom 
you're going to taper/angle in just like above shows (but all the way down, the sweater just hangs over the edge of my table so you cant quite see what imm saying).

Heres a closer view of what I mean. 

3) Now sew where your pins are
4) Remove pins 
5) Cut excess material off
6) Flip right side out
7) Put on
8) Flaunt it :D

I know I should really finish painting my trim
