Marshmallow Playdough | Inspiration on Monday

Hi guys!! Before we begin, I want to introduce a Guest Hostess for today’s Inspiration on Monday. Bex is joining us from An Armchair by the Sea. She is mum to two littles, lives in the UK, and blogs mostly about books but also shares crafty ideas (she is a quite the crafting inspiration!). She also hosts a regular book swap (Ninja Book Swap). You can also find her on Twitter. I hope you’ll give […]

Recipe Scrapbook | Inspiration on Monday

Recipe Scrapbook | Inspiration on Monday

Do you have a giant stack of printed recipes in your kitchen? I did–they were all shoved in a folder and I’d have to sort through them every time I wanted to cook a favorite recipe. I’d then have the piece of paper in the midst of my cooking and the page would eventually become so stained that I’d have to reprint it. I suppose the easy solution is to just look up the recipe online […]

Projects I Would Love to Create – Inspiration on Monday

Projects I Would Love to Create – Inspiration on Monday

While I don’t necessarily think of myself as a creative person, I do love to create. I do best with instructions or direct inspiration, but it’s always fun to take a starting point and just jump and see where I land. Most of my creative energies lately are focused in the sewing room–I’m working on my Stitcher’s Garden Quilt (this is for a monthly class so very slow going) and I have two quilt tops […]

Birthday Invitations with Picmonkey | Inspiration on Monday

Birthday Invitations with Picmonkey | Inspiration on Monday

  I don’t think it’s a secret that I loooooooove PicMonkey. I love it so much that I recently upgraded my account to the Royale version (after sadly eyeing those premium features that I couldn’t get my hands on). However, you can do so much with the free version of PicMonkey, including most of the below (the exceptions are the bunting, ribbon, and font style). Since Elle’s birthday is coming up and I had so […]

Making Painted Nursery Letters | Inspiration on Monday

Making Painted Nursery Letters | Inspiration on Monday

    So how brilliant is it of me to start up an “Inspiration” link-up and then have no idea what to share with y’all for the first week? *headdesk* I haven’t really been cooking a whole lot lately (unless you count my Sugar Reset meals), and my craft room is a disaster right now. This lady needs to spend some time cleaning up! I wandered through the house debating on what to share, I realized that […]

Inspiration on Monday – Introduction to Creativity

Inspiration on Monday – Introduction to Creativity

Introducing Inspiration on Monday! I’ve been teasing about Inspiration on Monday for several weeks now and I’d like to finally formally introduce y’all to this new creative link-up. Many of you know that when I’m not blogging (or mommying) I love to keep my hands busy by cooking, sewing, exercising, and just plain dreaming about things I would love to create or things I would love to implement. Over the blogging years I’ve held a few […]

Quilt for Kim and Ryan Finished!

Quilt for Kim and Ryan Finished!

In October my little sister Kim got married to her sweetheart Ryan. As I was trying to think of a wedding gift to give them, it finally came to me that I wanted to make them a quilt. I immediately texted my mom and sister to see if they would like to help and they both enthusiastically replied that they would. And so over the next several months, a beautiful quilt was made by six loving […]

Sticher’s Garden – A Quilt Beginning

Sticher’s Garden – A Quilt Beginning

  Oh good. I just took a look at my “2104 Things” thinking that I had on my list to take a photography class this year, but it’s not on there. Because goodness knows that there are enough things on the list that I haven’t done and won’t do this year (I’m looking at you 10K race). Maybe I should have put it on my list to take a sewing class this year, because I […]

Evie’s Baby Quilt FINISHED!!

Evie’s Baby Quilt FINISHED!!

The moment that I found out I was having another girl, I immediately began scouring my favorite quilting blogs for inspiration for her quilt. I sought out advice on Twitter and Hannah (of Wordlily) started sending me different ideas. I believe she’s the one who introduced me to the Urban Lattice design (originally from Me a Mom) and seeing the top from Lee of Freshly Pieced sold me on the design. It’s too bad that […]

Scott’s Quilt FINISHED!!

Scott’s Quilt FINISHED!!

Ahhh, the quilt that was four years in the making. When people learn that I quilt I have to remind them that I’ve only finished four quilts in my lifetime and they often take me yeeeeeeeeeears. After I made myself my first real machine quilted quilt, Scott decided he wanted me to make one for him. I sketched out what I had in mind and slowly started collecting the fabric. He wanted a motorcycle themed […]
