We are currently in New York, and this state in particular has blow me away with its natural beauty and amazing hiking trails. We sorely missed hiking in…

Sunset in the Palms…

One of my favorite parts about being in south Florida for the winter were the sunsets. We’ve seen desert sunsets, mountain sunsets, and ocean sunsets, but nothing beats a sunset when you’re on a small chain of islands, surrounded by nothing but water and views. It became a nightly tradition to walk out to the…

Embracing Spring: Jalie Michelle Tank

This has been a rough season for all of us, but one of the best things on the horizon is the season itself- Spring brings with it the promise of new beginnings, warmer weather, and, hopefully time to find some joy in the little things. I know that’s easier said than done, sometimes, and truth…

Why I refuse to sew Halloween costumes…and a fall recipe favorite!

Christmas in July!

If the almost daily posts to my blog are any indication, I’ve been a busy seamstress lately! I honestly try to space things out a bit, but sometimes I have something I’m just dying to share…like the new Christmas dress I made the princess! If you knew me in real life, you might be surprised…

Sahara by the Seaside…

While I was in San Diego, I had the pleasure of visiting several local fabric shops…and doing a bit of shopping (all that money saved on shipping means more to spend on fabric, right?). It was really fun to visit these places in person, and even better to get to meet the people that work…
