Getting back in the swing of things...

So it has been over 2 years since I have posted. I am going to get better at this. I am going to create a blog for my Laylah Bug so she has something to look back on when she is older. So this week has been an eventful week. I found out that Laylah's father passed away in March. That is 10 months ago! I just found out and now I struggle with finding the right thing to say. Laylah, you are only 6 years old and I am afraid you will not understand. I will do my best to explain things to you. I promise we willmake it through it. We have made it this far. You are such a strong, beautiful, caring child I am going to start keeping track of our memories so you can laugh and cherish our wonderful memories. This is going to be fun!I love you so much.

New Chapter

Well Laylah and I are officially in Indiana. We made it here Saturday evening. It is a tough transition. I feel very confident that this is a good thing for us. I am looking forward to seeing where life takes us. We needed this change. I miss my friends and family in Tennessee terribly, but I will see them soon. I will be crafting as soon as I unpack my craft boxes. It is going to take me awhile to get situated and adjusted. I can't wait to share our new adventures with everyone. Maybe I will make some Hoosier crafts soon! I will be back in the blog world very soon!

My lovely Kristin's 21st bday

Okay, so yesterday was the lovely Kristin's birthday. We had a beautiful little party for her. Devin did a great job decorating her place and made the most amazing cake ever! I can't believe in 8 days I will be leaving these beautiful girls. You are my sunshine ladies!

Painted sign

Here is the painted board I made tonight. Kristin and Devin came over for craft night. I love those girls. I also love signs that have fun sayings on them. I can't wait to make some more.

Flower headband

You start with 1 1/2 inch pieces of folded fabric. Then you cute them into "B's". Then you overlap the fabric B's and then sew them together. If you want a more detailed version of this please check out the tutorial where I got this idea. She has some really great ideas and tutorials. I got the idea from her tshirt. I made a headband instead. This was really easy and very cute!

I heart Betty Crocker

I have a 4 year old that has Celiac disease. She has done really well with her life long diet change. I think she actually does better with it than I do most of the time. I would just like to stop and thank Betty Crocker for coming out with some amazing Gluten Free mixes. The brownie, cookie, cake, and bisquick mixes are all very good at a very affordable price. I think they taste just as good as regular. Thank you Betty Crocker for taking the time, energy, and money to make the lives of people effected by Celiac a little better.

These are all very good. You can also go onto there website and find coupons for all of these.

Here is my first attempt at a skirt for my little Laylah. I think it turned out cute. I don't have a pattern. I kind of just winged it.

First step: Cut two pieces of fabric the size you want the skirt.
Step 2: Sew hem on bottom of material.
Step 3: Sew large hem on top big enough to fit ribbon through.
Step 4: Sew pieces of fabric together inside out.
Step 5: Turn right side out and put ribbon through the top hem
Step 6: Tie a bow on side!

Again, since I just winged it, I don't really have a precise pattern or way of doing it. I just tried to make it as simple as possible, since this is my first time sewing anything. I will post pictures of my little girl in it asap. I am really excited to start making outfits.
