Sew much to catch up on!

I bet you thought I had bailed on KCWC huh? Well, not exactly. Last week was my last and final week home before Lily finished school and began homeschooling. Although I was able to sneak in sewing time, I wasn't as good about updating my blog. 
This is what I've been spending my hour -ish [sometimes more sometimes less] each day this week. Started on tuesday with cutting the pattern out and laying it all together with my notions.

Following KCWC // kiiiind of :)

I absolutely LOVE a good garage sale/thrift store find & I have a lot of family and friends who know me well and will pick up their random finds for me as well. This is super awesome since I rarely get to go and browse due to the kids. With that, you'll get some stray clothes that just aren't your STYLE, like this little 4t jumper. It's super because it has shorts under the skirt, but I really wasn't digging the idea of Lily unbuttoning it each time she needed to go to the bathroom. It screamed "asking for accidents." 

I decided to try and follow the KCWC *(kids clothing week challenge) where you sew for an hour each day ... or whatever you can manage. Just to GET THINGS DONE! 

What I decided to do was pull the top & suspenders off and just leave the cute little skirt.

SIMON SAYS STAMP package has finally arrived!

I was so stoked to get my package from Simon Says Stamp today. I was so low on paper pads and they had some really awesome stamps that I had on my wish list...(&there are still plenty more!). I love that they give you the option to make a wish list. Otherwise I'd completely forget about some of the things I had seen previously and fallen in lust for. 

The lot of it including my go-to's : coffee/iphone/macbook/notebook&pen

MORE baby announcements

I was so excited to get my cord, I'm back with more announcements <3

Again, I used pre-patterned cards& added some fun embellishments to them. Super simple and fun. 

I love the paper places stamp, though I can't remember who makes it. :/

Photos are back up and running! 

Lately I have been making a lot of these birth announcements. It's showing its positive and negatives. They are a ton of fun, BUT they made me realize I have no number stamps?? HOw is this possiBle? 

I had to back-track and find a better way to make them, here's my first ones:

First it annoyed me to write the stats...
