This One’s For The Boys! #makingmemories #disney #brothercanada

One thing I know from my accessory making days, is that boy items are LIMITED. There just isn’t that much out there for the little guys, so it’s especially fun to be able to make something *boyish*. Jonah’s been begging me for a shirt to match the pyjama bottoms I made him for Christmas, and this was the perfect opportunity. He is THRILLED! And he felt the need to present his jammie bottoms in a yoga pose. lol And a…

Sewing Day 3 #brothercanada #disney #makingmemories

Well another sewing day is behind us. And another few projects are completed! Wanna see what we made? Here’s a rough version of the photos as I need to take better shots tomorrow, but nevertheless, here are the projects we did today: Just something small for Brooklyn since the remainder of my tshirt projects are for Jonah {oops}. I really love the simplicity of the sailboat and the fun of the contrasting colours. YAY – finally something for the boys.…

Brother DreamWeaver XE – Some Goodies #brothercanada #disney #makingmemories

It’s The New Cool ~ Geekie

Gone are the days of this: Though let’s be honest – we all loved him! But seriously – this version of Geekie didn’t last long, nor was it *COOL*. We all loved Steve Urkel, but nobody really wanted to look like him {except maybe as Stefan? Oh come on, you were smitten}. Well, there’s a new Geekie in town and everyone’s gonna want it! I know I do – and my kids, LOVE their new shirts. In fact, Jonah giggles…

It’s Quilting Time…

In the next few weeks I will be taking on another large sewing project….this time another quilt. But not like the memory quilt I made my mother in law, a quilted quilt…..lol And I am so excited! I toyed around with the idea of making one for our bed, but the truth is, I am SO undecided on what our colour scheme will be and what I want the overall look to be, I think the planning would be more…

Wave Pools Make Me Nervous #makingmemories

The mere idea of my kids in a wave pool takes my anxiety to newΒ  heights. So when a friend suggested we take the kids over Christmas holidays I had to force myself to be the *fun mom* and try it out. Why, you may ask? I’m certain it all stems from when I was a kid….I’m short and not a stellar swimmer….and if I was a wee bit too deep when the waves started, I wasn’t able to touch.…
