Is it just me, or has this year been the most difficult holiday shopping season ever? I have 4 Christmases to attend, over 30 people to buy for and I have a whopping total of 3 gifts right now. I typically like to write about topics I am interested in, so I figured if I shared with you some gift shopping inspiration, it’ll give me some as well. I hope so anyway!
There are few things that intimidate me more than sewing leather.
I absolutely love the look of a polished leather bag or leather accents (in the form of handles or zipper pulls), but working with leather is nothing short of frustrating, so I left the leather fantasy behind me and tried to embrace brown suede.
Today, I am going to teach you how to make an ottoman. Let me start by saying that I am by no means an interior designer. My mom and sister toss around words like “baseline trim” and “French country appeal” as if I get what they are talking about. I don’t even watch Chip and Joanna (apparently, that’s unheard of for 25 year old woman).
I know this is a sewing blog, but I helped teach a Pinterest Course at a homeschool co-op this semester, and lots of students were interested in making wire wrapped rings as part of the course.
I loved all the DIY ring ideas on Pinterest, but do you know how frustrating it is to pin an adorable photo, and then when you click on that photo, it leads to NO WHERE?
It’s almost that time of year again!
I promise I won’t be that person that SKIPS Thanksgiving and talks about Christmas before the turkey is even purchased. Why do people do that?
Like, why do people talk about politics on Facebook?
Here’s a tip: don’t even mention Trump or Hillary on social media unless you want conflict in your life. (Except Twitter. Somehow, it’s fine to state all opinions there with zero repercussions.)
I had the privilege of traveling to Haiti last week, and oh my word. It was a life changing experience. If you’re thinking that sentence sounds just like what EVERYONE says when they go serve in a 3rd world country, just know I am thinking that even more. I hate being like everyone else (except for loving Starbucks), but honestly I can’t think of a better sentence to describe my trip.
