(Free!) Trendy Desktop Patterns
My computer desktop has never looked so good! This site has so many fun (and free!) downloadable backgrounds to choose from.
I love to sew, but one of the things I don’t do is hem. Ever. But this tutorial makes it look so easy, and I’ve got some jeans I’ve been meaning to bring to the tailor, well, FOREVER (because let’s face it… all my jeans should be tailored for flats, because it’s what I wear 99% of the time). Now I’m inspired to give my newest thrifted designer jeans a try on my old sewing machine.
Heart Dress Tutorial
Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, and well, poor Wrenn missed it with her month of fevers. And I’m left with a ton of candy I had bought for her teachers and classmates at school. But that’s neither here nor there (don’t worry, I’ll make sure it doesn’t go to waste… I’ll be eating it until it’s time to buy Cadbury Eggs). I’ve decided that just because Valentine’s Day has passed doesn’t mean I can’t still make this adorable dress for Miss Wrenn. I love the idea of using a current dress as a pattern. And, well, if you add a giant heart, it just multiplies the cuteness.
So, it turns out turbans are super easy to make. I was in the mood for a quick craft project last night while we were hunkered down, waiting for the ice storm to hit. This tutorial was so easy to follow, and now Wrenn and I have matching headbands. Well, Wrenn refuses to wear hers for more than 3 seconds, but if I happen to catch her with it on his head, you can bet I’ll snap a picture for proof. I’ll be blogging the project over at the Fort Worth Moms Blog in a few weeks, so you’ll be able to see photos there.
And to all of my DFW friends… I hope you stay warm during our first ice storm of the winter season! I’m thankful that I can work from home today, cozy by the fire, safe and warm.
