I finally finished my cross stitch iphone case...the mouse pattern is from Martha Stewart--the Missoni-inspired background is my own 'creation'.


DIY bow belt

i am not a seamstress, not by any stretch of the imagination...however, by following the easy directions/pictures of this cute diy bow belt from momtastic.com, i was able to make this belt for my daughter in less than 30 minutes. it really was just a trial run--not even sure she will like it--and i just used some leftover knit fabric from a school project she had just completed.


i really haven't fallen off the face of the earth...

funny how things change.  our lives have taken a major turn this last year and i hope to begin sharing some thoughts about that.

BUT for now...please know that i am still around, still love to hear from you all, and if you are interested...let me know if you are on pinterest.  it's so fun if you are in a 'time-wastin'' kind of mood [which for me, you know, is more often than not!]
