Shameless Self Promoting

Some of you know that there’s more to me than being a momma and a blogger. Some of you know of my obsession hobby of crafting. I will craft anything…seriously, anything.

I’ve always enjoyed making things but things got serious when I got a sewing machine before Zim was born. I was determined to make my own Vera Bradley-ish diaper bag. I made this bag my making my own pattern and I was SO happy with how it turned out! I don’t have a nice photo of my diaper bag, but here are two more bags I made using that as my template. The first is another diaper bag. I got the sweetest note from the woman it was gifted to! The second is a travel tote I made for a friend of my mother-in-law. She was going on a trip and wanted something to carry on the plane that would hold her books and such.

I really enjoy being able to pick out fun fabric and create with it! I’ve also sewn some dresses…I know, I have boys so why right? I just wanted to try my hand at it!

I love to make adorable headbands. I started by seeing something I wanted for myself at Target and of course I thought to myself, “I can totally make that myself for a lot less!” Here are some recent ones that I LOVE!

Then of course there is my jewelry…

I also enjoy designing things on the computer along with my photography.
