SEW inspired



Just washed,ironed, and folded some of my new fabrics.Folding fabrics is my favorite I could do it all day. Who know what these fabrics will become. I'm excited to make lots of pretty things.Eeee!!!

I just love that when you create something you have endless possibilities. I made this top but in the dress version a couple weeks ago. It turned out super cute. I am going to put it on the etsy page once I get it going. It should be pretty soon. I have been making lots of stuff for the page.

Okay this is totally random but
I want a tree house


don't we all...
I know every kid has dreamed of one.
This one is amazing though. Since I will probably never get one like this unless I win the lotto I am going to bed to dream about it.

Happy Day

I have had a jam packed wonderful day. I started my day early this morning making scones.


These are the scones before they went into the oven. They were quite delicious. Unfortunately the last three scones were left on the table unattended and Mimi got to them. I don't know what to do about my crazy dog. Sometimes she drives me nuts. She totally knows she isn't suppose to be on the table. She is so disobedient. Ugh she will go weeks being good but then she will do something horrible and then my family gets really mad at her. It's so frustrating.I wasn't home when all this happened but my mom text me and told me the story. My mom was like "she is staying outside until you get home." So when I did get home she was crazy excited. She is an inside dog and hates being outside alone but loves when someone is out there with her. Whatever enough about her
Okay my day does actually get better. Sorry about that blurb about Mimi.
Anyways after making scones Gaby came over and we left to the dreamcenter. We then got on the bus and went to Jordan Downs where we hung out with some sweet little girls.

After that we headed to the fashion/fabric district. It was wonderful. I got two adorable tops and more fabric to make cute things with! Poor Gaby must have thought I was crazy when I found designer fabric that I usually only order online because they don't even sell it at my favorite quilting stores. I was thrilled. In the midst of all the cheap fabric they sell in downtown LA there was tons of the fabric I loved. I will most definitely be going back there. I seriously love Gaby she is one of the sweetest girls I know. She helped me so much today when I was shopping like a mad woman. If you are reading this right now Gaby I really do love getting to spend all day with you every Saturday. You are amazing and will always be one of my best friends. We have known each other for almost 20 years now. Crazzzzy.


I love looking at all the pretty buildings in LA. I snapped these pictures at a red light. I couldn't resist.

Well night world

remember



Remember when the majority of teenagers/college aged kids dressed cute? I wish I could say I do but sadly it was before my time. Im not saying that everyone dresses ugly these day because that is totally untrue. But yesterday at school I just saw way too many girls rear ends. Those super low rise jeans are not good. But almost all jeans they sell are relatively low which can be super annoying. Anyways I thought this picture was so sweet. It is from the LIFE archives.

Tomorrow I'm headed to South Central with Gaby. I am so excited I haven't been in two weeks. Here is a clip from a few weeks ago. I just love this kid. He is so sweet.

Look out weekend

Yay! finally the weekend is here. I love not going to school on Friday. Hopefully tomorrow I will have time to sew before going to work. I just washed and iron all my pretty fabrics can't wait to make something.

I made this baby skirt a couple of days ago. I have been practicing my pattern making skills with simple things like skirts and shirts. The skirt didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted it to. I made it with built in bloomers but I think they are a tad to small for the size of the skirt waist band. I definitely need to make some adjustments. But I love how the bib turned out.
I stumbled on these pictures of some amazing roads on this website


Check out the link to see the rest of them. I think my dad may have been on number eighteen. I remeber him telling me about a road in Mexico that was extremely dangerous. It's in Durango which is where my dad use to go visit with family. I will have to ask him about it tomorrow.

When I babysat them a couple of weeks ago we played
Star Wars.
Home Depot.
and McDonalds.
It was super fun.

Every time

This is what Mimi does every time I leave the house.

She cries

and jumps over and over again.

Goodness this dog can make me feel guilty. She is so spoiled but what can I say I really love her. She is the one who keeps me company when everyone is at work and school and I'm at home doing homework before my evening classes.

California, I love your orange trees.

Sweet Snow

So we did it. We went to the mountains and there was actually snow. And boy was there lots of it. We had so much fun sledding with Alyse's boogie board and just playing in the snow. It was really cold and a bit crowded but the short drive was well worth it. I can't wait to go back!









I just love Southern California.

Cutieface


So I made this cute little headband as a gift to Alyse for Christmas. I made one for myself too. We usually wear them behind the hair line but we put them like this to take pictures.

I thought it looked super cute on Alyse.

As for me not so much.

I think this little look requires bags.

Okay this time I really mean goodnight.

miss

I miss this. I am longing for warm summer days in the midst of winter.
So I just got this new program to make my pictures into polaroids. I am in love with it. I think the blog will see lots more of these. I have a polaroid camera but I just can't afford to by film. I love the look of polaroid pictures. They are so cute. One day I will just have to break down and buy some film.

It's so cool you watch it develop and can have it stop at any time.

I like the way this one looks a little under developed

Alyse if your reading this I love you bff.
