Goodbye 2013

I don't think that there is one person out there, that on this day, doesn't look back on the entire past year.

From a personal point of view it was a roller coaster year, from husband having no job, to be taken miles and miles from home for a month (blah), to new a new baby, and a first plane ride.

From crafty point of view, lots of less crafting due to what I like to call crochetingitis, which in the end effects all things. Looking back the only thing that I really liked that I made was the stocking.

Looking ahead to 2014, I'm giving myself a challenge. How to Live More with Less. (Yes there is a book by the same title and its a very good book I might add)  My hope is to inspire you to think differently about things from crafts (more tutorials) , to what we put in and on our bodies.( more recipes) And to hopefully see that you can do things to save money, without having to change things you like to do... too much. 

So heres to 2014, and all new challenges! :)

On a Roll

Its that time of year, where I once again take a Pottery Barn Kids creation and make one similar for me. Well really for the newest addition to the family, Jonah.

This was Leah's

And Penelope's

Annnd Jonah's

I think the train is super cute and pays homage to his Great-Great Grandpa who was a train engineer.

Here's the original

I thought maybe I'd have a break next year from making these... but nope. Come April we add another to our family!!!!

For the instructions on how to make these, refer to

Remember these are merely guidelines, let your imagination run wild and happy sewing! :)
