The technology we have today is incredible! We can push a button on a machine in our kitchen and our food is cooked, we didn’t even have to gather wood or tend a fire! We can lay in bed in our pajamas, teeth not even brushed yet and order fabric to be sent right to your doorstep! We can send messages to people across the world without even picking up a writing utensil! The conveniences we have are phenomenal! **SOAP BOX OPINION** Yes, technology has made the world a more simple place (Except when I can’t get my wifi to work! Game over when thatRead More →

I think we’ve all worked on a project when we just didn’t have enough fabric! You know the drill, you buy what you think is plenty of fabric, get to work and then BOOM! You’re running out of fabric and you’re not even close to being done! You could go get more fabric but you’re on a deadline! Maybe it’s just me, but that is exactly what happened for this project when I designed it many years ago! I had to use every little scrap I had to make the background big enough to do my applique patterns on top! Although I was sweating overRead More →

It’s that time of year again, the kids are getting their haircuts, picking out new outfits and preparing to take on the new school year!

I often wonder why humans have such sensitive feet! You would think they would be tough, especially since they carry us from place to place! Maybe it’s just me but when I stub my toe, my vision is instantly blurred with watery eyes and my vocabulary is a little more bold than usual. Have you ever stepped on a lego? Oh gosh, it’s game over when that happens!! Someone might as well amputate my foot because my feet are just so sensitive!! Stepping on things is definitely a common problem in a household with kids! That’s why I am so jazzed about today’s tutorial! InRead More →

Let’s be honest here, a person can never have too many bags! My wife has so many that she has a bag to hold all her bags! It’s a little ridiculous but it’s okay because I love her. It’s also okay because I’m an enabler of the bag craze! Today’s tutorial is a great example of that!! We live in California and go to the beach a lot! So this bag was a necessity for my families’ bag collection! We use this one for grocery shopping, days at the park and just about any time we have to carry things! (Except for sneaking snacks intoRead More →
