End of Year Plans!

It’s been eons since I’ve done a planning post, and I have so many ideas rolling around in my head that I thought it was high time for another!

We have lots of fun stuff coming up as the year comes to an end, so I have quite the sewing schedule planned.  I’ll have a chance of getting a good portion of it done if I actually sew after the kids go to bed instead of falling asleep on the couch…we’ll see what I finish!  Here they are in order of priority:

1.  Christmas dress #1 for Peaches

4-KS
Simple Life Pattern Co Baby Aria

Happy Halloween from Cheeks and Cupcake!

Heyyyy!  Long time no see, but I finally got off my duff (well, actually I remained seated, but you get the turn of phrase) and not only sewed but also wrote about my babies’ Halloween costumes!

6c
Cheeks:  3
Cupcake: 6 months

HOW CUTE ARE THEY???  I love them so.

I thought about splitting this up into a couple of different posts, since I have a poopload of photos, but ultimately decided to just make this a massive, awesome Halloween costume bomb. KA-BLAM.  You’re welcome.

Come on Home, Baby

It’s gonna be a while with these baby centric posts until I’m through everything I’ve made for her (and her brother!).  But don’t worry, I slipped a couple of things in for me along the way, and you’ll get to watch her cute-ify in fast forward!

But first:  take a gander up at my new blog logo!  How freakin’ awesome is it?  I’m really lovin’ it.  My good buddy Chrystal saw the lame ass logo I had created with an online logo generator and offered to help a girl out…and boy did she.  Thank you so much Chrystal!

I’m definitely into matching family outfits the “Mama and me” idea, even with my little guy Sweet Cheeks, so I knew I would want to take Baby Girl home in the cheesiest fashion possible.

This is Deer & Doe’s Aubepine, or as I discovered via Google Translator means Hawthorn in English.  Also very important: IT HAS POCKETS! Continue reading “One for Mama, Two for Baby Girl”

Throwback Thursday: Simplicity 2369

Been a few weeks, but here we are with more THROWBACK THURSDAY!  Today is a pattern I love and have made twice (but haven’t blogged until now).  I always think about making more, but then get distracted by another new pretty pattern.

Anywho, here it is:  Simplicity 2369

This purty dress got lots of wear at weddings last year.
