Did Ya Miss Me?

Did ya miss me???

I have been slacking in the blogging department, but I plan on keeping you updated with all the creations that have been going on this past month. It has been a busy few weeks!
My master's classess are in full swing, I flew out to L.A. for my brother's wedding, don't forget about Valentine's day, teaching full time , and being a wife and Momma!
WHEW!!!
Here's what I have been up to:

I'm doing that thing again again! That thing about not purchasing off the rack new clothes! Anything I need or my family needs we will find at the thrift store, or I will make it! There are 2 exceptions: Underwear (because no one wants used undies...ew.) and gifts.
I have done well so far, 2 trips to the thrift store since the new year. I have found some great items.
like this:

I have been hard at work snipping and working on this one.
 I hope to show you what I have accomplished soon.

I flew out to L.A. for my brother's wedding and I gave myself the challenge of making my dress! 

It is the same pattern I used for THIS dress.
 I went to the fabric store and used a gift card that I 
recieved for Christmas from my Mother-in-Law! She Rocks! 
My brother wanted people in solid colors including navy blue, so I found this great non-wrinkling fabric and bought a couple yards!

Here's how it turned out!

Isn't my family just gorgeous!!!

Picture Credit to my new friend Travis, that I met at the wedding. 

I flew home on Valentine's Day and I didn't get home until really late! 
Before I left, I made my kid a fun heart pillow from a blanket that I thrifted a while back.
 It was waiting for her when she woke up while I was gone.

She was much happier to receive this pillow I swear!


See you next time!!
