Whitefish {Our Week In Review} #makingmemories

We spent the last week enjoying a blissful family getaway to our condo in Whitefish. Normally we go with Brent’s entire family, but this time, it turned out NOONE could come. So, for what will probably be the one and only time, we had it to ourselves. What did we do? Invite friends of course! Now, we would have loved to invite several of our closest friends, but that would have resulted in about 15 kids – which in a…

Where I Lay

Brent and I have been married for 10 years. And in this time, we’ve NEVER had a bedding set. In fact, we’ve actually been using a Star Wars quilt one of Brent’s ex-girlfriend’s made for him. for real. Until now…..while in Whitefish this past week I happened upon a Queen bedding set in ROSS – one that caught my eye right away aaaaaand was only $35!!!!!

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…

Well another sewing day is behind us. And another few projects are completed! Wanna see what we made?

I really love the simplicity of the sailboat and the fun of the contrasting colours. YAY – finally something for the boys.…

Brother Canada contacted me a few weeks ago offering their new Dreamweaver XE {sewing, quilting, and embroidery machine} for review – I KNOW! – I nearly peed my pants too! I could not believe it and honestly squealed with delight for days. But also tried to reign in the excitement *just in case* it didn’t happen. And then the Purolator truck parked outside…

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…
