A couple weeks ago, Alex Resch, a sewist extraordinaire and all around amazing person, hosted a “Choose your Own Adventure Activewear SewAlong” over in the Fabric Fairy group. I spent time with her planning out my fabrics, patterns and getting hyped up, only to have life get in the way and knock me off course.…

My last post (check it out here) left off with us in Yuma, on the way to Mexico for Christmas. Heading south of the Border as a family is something I’ve wanted to do for a while- but it seemed that the fear of the unknown always stood in our way- where to cross, where…

A few weeks ago, I got a wild hair (which tends to happen when I’m “home” for any length of time), and decided to convince hubby that we should join a rally of families traveling through Arizona and Mexico for the holidays. The thing about my wild hairs is that while they are pretty crazy,…

Note: This post is part of a sewing and travel documentary, as I share what I sew and experience during our two month RV tour of the American Southwest. You can read part one of that series HERE. After San Diego, we were originally scheduled to journey to Lake Havasu in Arizona, but I quickly…

Hey friends! It feels like we were just hanging out here yesterday, and while I don’t want you to develop, you know, expectations about when I post (I love to be random like that!), I just had to circle back to share my new favorite cami, and a tutorial for getting this look yourself! This…

The weather forecast FINALLY shows a week of sunshine around here, and if I was like any normal person, I’d be breaking out last year’s capris and tanks.
