If you're stopping by from Kelly's Korner, hello and welcome! After spending just a little time looking around my blog, you'll quickly realize that I love to sew bags. When I left my job as an interior designer two years ago to be a stay at home mom, what I missed most was all the fabric I was surrounded by everyday. Silly, I know- but I'm pretty sure some of you can identify with having a fabric obsession. So it didn't really surprise me when I purchased a sewing machine and started sewing simple handbags to satisfy my longing to work with fabric again.
Now that you know the background for how I got started sewing, I thought it would be fun to share with you the story of how 2 yards of SHOCKING YELLOW fabric unexpectedly became the best selling item in my Etsy shop. When I decided to make the Amy Butler Weekender bag this past summer, I knew I wanted to incorporate this fabric somehow:
Thanks for stopping by!

-Trying to juggle life with two kids has been an adjustment. In order to make myself feel better about my crazy life, I've started watching Jersey Shore. I know, it's the lowest of the lows when it comes to trashy tv. I look forward to Thursday night because that's when the new episodes air. Is it sad that I know all their names and I cried last week when Ronnie and Sammi were breaking up? Not because I thought they were a good couple, but because of how horrible they treated each other during the break-up.

This past week Avery turned 2! She surprised us this week by saying a few new words- horse, moon, toes. She can whip through the house like a tornado and leave a mess in her wake faster than you can blink an eye. I love seeing her discover something new or figure out a new way to play with her toys. She understands FAR MORE of what we say than we give her credit. She loves watching Sesame Street, Curious George, Dinosaur Train, Clifford, just to name a few. And she loves reading her books. Especially books with animals in them. Her absolute favorite thing to read is a kids magazine called Wild Animal Baby. I can't even tell you how many times we've read these to her. Seriously, if you've got a child under the age of 5, you should subscribe to this magazine.
