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.
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!
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!
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.www.mommagoround.blogspot.com.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 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.
