Family Tradition.

Our family used to take a "Button Picture" at the fair every year. My parents started the tradition when they first got together :)

Please excuse my awkward years

If you follow my blog I'm sure you've noticed the lack of content lately. 
I feel like I have so much to say but the words just wont flow from my brain to my fingertips which led to too many draft posts and blank pages with a blinking cursor.


I've decided that maybe this is just a season in my life where there are other things to focus on rather than blogging. Will I be back? Of course! I have a lot of exciting things coming up that I'll want to share. Just think of this as a little hiatus if you will.

My Cup of Tea Sunday: Collaboration!

Happy Sunday Everyone!

In the past Sundays have been for cute outfits that I've created through the magic of Polyvore.
Well, I'm getting bored with it! So I have a new idea for an awesome collaboration of all the lovely ladies who read my blog. 

I would love it if each Sunday I could feature a different bloggers "Cup of Tea".

It could be from Polyvore, Pinterest, a favorite recipe, family pictures, a hobby, you know, anything you fancy! I think it would be a great way to connect with each other and meet new people.

If you're interested in participating on a Sunday shoot me an email:

Look forward to hearing from you!

Blythe Inspiration

Yesterday I made my very first Blythe outfit. I whipped it up real quick so it's lacking in the quality department but now I'm anxious to get a sewing machine so I can make more!

Here are some more I found on Pinterest that I fell in love with

I think the next step will be sanding her face...I'm a little nervous about that though.

Any other Blythe people out there? I'd love some tips!

Home Tour: Craft Room/Office

I feel like my craft room has been a never ending project! Just when I think I'm getting close to completing it, I get a landslide of orders and it becomes a pile of supplies and fabric clippings. I finally got some control over it (Enough to take some pictures anyway). It's not complete but it's getting there!


The super cute hutches were found at a thrift store by my mom. The second one didn't have the dresser base so my mom found another option and I made the little curtain to hide all of my junk.

I spray painted these picture frames red and used fabric and scrapbooking paper for the art

My little Blythe finally has a home! I just need to start making her some new outfits and maybe get her the curly wig I've been eying on etsy!

This is the awesome desk that turns into a drafting table and the magnified lamp that the boy bought me for my birthday

The wrapping station! Finally I don't have to feel so guilty about my love for wrapping paper. It can all be neatly stored in the closet.

New York City, Here I come!!!!

Oh my goodness you guys! I've always wanted to go to New York and I finally get to go!!!

Tim has a convention thing for work at the end of October and I get to fly out and join him when it's over! So that means 3 things that I've always wanted will happen:

1. Visit New York
2. Visit New York in Fall (What's more romantic than a stroll through Central Park with the colorful leaves!?)
3. Take an airplane trip on my own. What an adventure!

Alright, you New Yorkers and fellow travelers, what do I need to see, where do I need to eat, what do I need to pack!
