When I got married 12 years ago (how it has been that long I can't figure out!!), a few sweet people gifted us hand embroidered tea towels. They have been loved and used, but after 12 years, they're much use shows with holes and many stains. When I saw that JOANN carries plain flour sack towels, I immediately had a fun idea.

Last year, I wanted to do a teacher gift for my son's teacher that was homemade but also something that fit her. She was a hard teacher to come up with something, but finally I decided to do a tote bag with her name on it. I have lots of scrap fabric, so it was a great way to use those scraps up. She also did donuts days, so I even put a donuts on the bag

As soon as Christmas was over, I vowed that I would make something for me. Now, I really do love sewing for my kiddos, but sometimes it's nice to not sew for them :). When I saw this Ikat linen from JOANN, I knew immediately that it would make the best linen apron.

Since having a little girl, my husband decided she would not have bangs. Mostly because of the maintenance of the bangs or something, I'm still not totally sure why :). Either way, as long as she has had hair, we've been clipping it back. As you can imagine, we have LOTS of bows and clips. She is finally at age to finally want to wear them.

I don't mind winter, I really don't. I love the rain, especially as I fall asleep. But there definitely comes a time near February and March as the days get longer and there's the teasing of warmer weather ahead. It's then that I'm fully ready for spring. Spring is such an exciting time full of hope and color. Babies, eggs and little bright colorful flowers popping through the dirt. It's a time to hope for a chance to start again. Can you tell I LOVE Easter and celebrating the resurrection of our Savior.

I must admit, Valentines is not my favorite holiday. My husband and I don't get gifts for each other or really celebrate intentionally. But since having kids, valentines has become another fun holiday to share with them.
