Pattern Love

I bought this pattern over six months ago and hadn't ever found the time to use it. I'm SO glad I did. This little darling dress took me about 2 days, off and on (whenever the kids were sleeping)! 
I forgot my love for patterns! 
I cant even remember the last time I used one, but this wont be the last!
Look at the cute detail on the sleeve!
and the side detail... ahhhh!
Anyway, I guess my whole reason for this post is to get you to love patterns too!!
 I think I went through a stage were I thought everyone of my ideas had to be original, and really I still can. NO one has this dress in this pattern... and I through in a little belt to pull it all together. So seriously have fun when you sew, don't burn yourself out. Take a couple days off and on finishing a project, so you still have time to take the kiddos to the park!

Bottle 'em up.... family style!

I was browsing craft blogs when I stumbled on this little gem. I WILL make this. I found the Idea from the FunkyJunkInteriors.
I have always wanted to do genealogy and learn more about my family history, but never have really known how, or had time. Not that putting up a few pictures will feed my desire to learn more about my family, but it sure hits the sweet spot! I love pictures, old pictures in particular.
I asked my grandma to send some pictures to me. Including early pictures of my mom, my grandmas wedding, and even my Great Grandparent's day to day pictures! I cant wait till they come and I can look through them all!!
As for the bottles....... no luck at the D.I yet...... but I haven't lost faith! I did find a bunch at the antique store but each bottle was about 12 dollars... and I'm kinda on a budget here!
