funny bunny

I've really been wanting to delve into my sewing, so I thought stuffed animals for my kids would be a pretty simple endeavor with pleasing results. Well, it wasn't actually that simple (at least not to me!) but the kids thought it was cute. I just need to figure out how to finish (close up the stitches at the end.) Work in progress...

an apple a day...

Here are a few images of my new favorite "apple" items. I love the bold, punchy colors, particularly of the sheet set. It would be fun to scale it down to toddler size for my daughter, Apple, in a cuddly blanket, or stuffed fabric animals. For purchasing info, click here...

i heart summer weddings

I absolutely love weddings, so when one of my best friends announced she was getting married I was thrilled! Last weekend I enjoyed their reception, something I've dubbed "An Afternoon in the Garden..." It truly was a lovely afternoon, and even more lovely witnessing the happy couple's union in front of all of their family and friends.

Download Free Fonts!

Recently, for my birthday, my husband sent me a really cute e-mail with the Happy Birthday song. When I thanked him later for it, he mentioned he had looked for a long time to find a font to make it look pretty. I said, "yeah, I think you ended up using Chick, right?" He said, "I can't believe you know the names of the fonts!" Well, I have to admit it, in my effort to make things a little more beautiful, I have been known to go font-crazy. I just heard about dafont, where you can download free fonts to your mac or pc. Check out Joyful Juliana, my new favorite.
